Oh, My Word!

The FREE bag . .

I sent my Human to some Creative Expression to reduce her stress  It worked.  Since she’s returned I’ve gotten many more doggie treats than ever.

I do have some observations though.

The first day She got a bag for attending. She was all excited that she got a FREE bag and then sloshed paint all over the bag as soon as she got home.

FREE?? I think the paint smells got to her since the workshops cost money, used up a tank of gas,  paid for parking and for two days didn’t see any clients . . . .

Next day I sent her to a “Lettering” workshop called Oh My Word.  All she had to show for it was this teeny little handmade practice booklet and (here we go again) a bag of “FREE” Faber Castell lettering pens which she’s been carrying around with her like a bag of gold.

I should have sent her to a SPELLING workshop

Shaking my head in disbelief


I wish for walks in the park, dream of cookies and believe my Human is losing it.

Complicating Simplicity

Oh, my word, Here Come More doggie treats!  Gotta look up another creative workshop to send her to . . . If you know of any let me know ASAP to keep those cookies comin’.  (She stresses out very quickly).

Her intension is definitely In TENSION

I’m an Un-Cola, Getting Re-Fizzed

I’ve been an Un-cola, a bit colorless without the fizz.  In a taste test I’d be described as flat.

Been un-blogging for a few days.  Still un-sleeping.  A bit un-der the weather.

Today I got a bit of my carbonation back!  Attended an all day journal technique workshop taught by Jane LaFazio. JaneVille.blogspot.com Discovered her through the SketchBook Challenge Blog I wrote about a few months back.

Fun!  It was FUN!  I was covered in paint and gesso, paper all over the floor creating a BIG BOOK

It’s hard to see but here are some of the preliminary pages that are still in progress.  I’m going back tomorrow for a workshop in lettering!

Painting, cutting, pasting

Stamping, spraying, doodling, "collaging"

BIG Book, spilling over the table

I’ll be adding some of these fun techniques to my Therapeutic Creative Expression workshops.

Stay tuned while I get more of the Pause that Refreshes!
