Thoughts & Dots: Easy Art Journaling Idea

thoughts and dots img

Do you ever want to create something, but have no oomph because you are sick or just plain tired? Because of health issues, I have a lot of days like that, and it sucks. Or, it did until I found a fun, relaxing, creative outlet that was not only inexpensive but also required only minimal supplies and was something I could do while resting on the couch or even from bed.

It gets pretty boring when you’re sick! Just because my body doesn’t want to work some days, doesn’t mean my mind isn’t still ready to roll. I’m sure you too have days like that.

Check out “Thoughts & Dots,” a video about my new go-to art journal method to satisfy my creative bug on the down days.

Misadventures with Instagram

I created an Instagram account when I created this page. I posted some of my art, followed a few folks and shared some of their art and had a small handful of followers. For some unknown reason, Instagram disabled my account, questioning whether I was a bot or human, and said in order to reinstate it, I had to send in a new photo with me holding a paper with a code handwritten on it. I did this. Over and over. They refuse to let me back in.

I don’t get it. Uhgh.

On a positive note, I finally created a tripod to start filming art process videos. Stay tuned.
