I spent the day making flying geese. Like more flying geese than I care to count. I always use starch when I make them, but then I ran out in the middle and was just too lazy to hop to the store and get a fresh can. .
Instead, I researched recipes to make my own (because making your own is easier than driving to a store 😳😉🙄). I made the starch, had a horrible time with it, and then made more this time tweaking the recipe with a bit of knowledge I already had about corn starch. Quite pleased with my starch, maybe not so much the whole afternoon of time spent on it. ☺️
It didn’t hurt that I added peppermint oil and my studio is quite pleasant smelling. So much so I keep taking deep breaths just to soak it in. More on this soon. .
The writings a bit hard to read so here’s what it says: My grandmother struggled with what I can now guess was anxiety. It has also shown itself closer to home, though it’s not something I have to deal with. I have to ask — Will there be a season when it comes for me? #getmessyartjournal#getmessytcl

Day 27 of my #thirtydaysofabstracts is a small cropped piece of a larger painting from a couple of years back. Something about it reminds me of this beautiful Island of the Gods I feel so grateful to be visiting right now. #balibliss#sacredmarks

Am grateful for the opportunity to job shadow with newarkyogamovement yoga classes at Sussex Avenue Renew School. amazing how positive reinforcement has shown to be better at creating a world of difference in children. As a former student, 👩🏾🎓 it was wonderful to reunite with my educators. 🕉 "I see the good in you, you see the good in me" #namaste#yoga#yogainspiration
It’s the first day of fall! ⠀
For me that means pumpkin everything, cozy sweaters, candles in every room and bringing out the slow cooker for savory stews. I love the cooler weather which won’t happen here for a bit 😉 and how a simple change in season makes me suddenly slow down and simply be. ⠀
What does fall mean for you?

So, I was really excited to use this marled gray yarn on the bottom leaf — thinking it would be a cool texture detail. But now that I see in the picture I don’t think there’s enough contrast.
I’m thinking about replacing it with a solid charcoal yarn. What do you think?
