Explore: Note to Self ...

... having recently resigned, lacking creativity and wondering what to do next Shimelle's new class seemed like perfect timing to me and I was very captivated by the title!

So first prompt today - take a self portrait in the mirror and write a Note to Self:



18th July 2011

So here I am just past my 41st birthday. I'm pretty comfortable having pictures taken of myself (even with the extra wrinkles) and do document myself in my scrapbooks. This is really quite important to me.

However, my creativity is low at the moment, there are so many projects that I wish to tackle but I just don't feel I have the energy.

Now I'm at a crossroads and hoping to take a new path that will lead me to a new, invigorated person, full of life and energy.

'Explore' is most definitely what my life is about at the moment and I'm intrigued as to where it may take me.

Great photo & I'm with you on the 'wrinkles & all' subject...at least those little lines show we have actually 'lived'!! I'm sure you will find the inspiration you need in this class to get your creativity flowing freely again! Enjoy!! I'm still putting together my 'Play Book'!!!

Hi Fay! So nice to find your lovely blog through the class. I remember feeling very much like you when I left my job a couple of years ago, but scrapbooking and art journalling were the things that helped to remind me who I was and who I wanted to be. Good luck on your own journey. Clair x

Beautiful self-photo. Don't worry about any of those little lines, they don't show at all. I think your playbook is great and like that you are doing it of recent travels. Also, thanks for your comment on my blog.
