My husband keeps several tables of Puzzles available for his Counseling patients during group session. It appears it has been VERY therapeutic for them. Someone finished this one the other day & I just had to show off the incredible picture! It's a vintage puzzle which makes it that much more cool! I spied so many cool things!!! And still keep finding little things I had'nt noticed!
Hemp paper and natural pigment paint seems to be a match made in heaven. I’m really enjoying binding and painting on this earth friendly paper and just knowing that this journal I made with all things natural makes it an even more wonderful experience ✍🏽 🎨
Occupying my hands with something creative has only ever done good for my mind and body, it was one of the biggest distractions for me while recovering from cancer treatment over the past 4 years, even now when I wake up in the morning in pain and I can barely hold a needle because I suffer with rheumatoid arthritis, I push on because I know if I can just ride through the pain and begin working on something I enjoy it will get better, immersing myself in just that moment of making, creating something beautiful, lifts the pain, reduces joint pain and overall lifting my mood and in turn kicking those happy hormones into action. Never underestimate the power of spending time creatively can have on your wellbeing🧡

Accidental one, but that may describe me and my life. This one is worth at least 10,000 words.

Seahorse for Kate
I'm ever so sorry for not posting anything for a while, but I really hope you guys are all ok and are having a lovely summer so far :) I guess after quite a long period of mini breakdowns and slacking in self-love, I thought I ought to start setting my mind on even just one little scribble per day and try to focus on something other than negativity, and so this little doodle of her majesty The Queen is quite a random and I guess a rather apt thing that came out of my pen, since that minuscule bit of power over my own thoughts was such a joy to feel again, even for just a couple of minutes.
But a few weeks ago a most wonderful twin sis of mine was just a-doodling beside me, and after about ten minutes she had produced such a beautiful study of Queen Elizabeth from a ten pound note that I guess Em's satisfaction from the outcome just caused my brain to click, and think "wouldn't doing something like this be better than just moping around here?" Oh yes, challenge accepted... Of course, if any of you guys have any advice or constructive criticism for me, it would mean the world to me as I would absolutely love to hear your opinions, no matter what they are.
But please have a lovely rest of such a pretty summer evening, and never let your mind deprive your gorgeous selves of love, because you deserve it just as much as anybody else does xxxxx

Minding my manners, as I fill up my planner,
they killed off my grand parents, so I’m nice with the Gramma(r)
tossed all my fave ppl, in the psych ward and slammers
labeled gangbangers in bandanas, man its bananas
makes me think a going back, to packing a hammer
so I put it on a track, bout to hit up Simone
for that next house party tho, start pitching my tones
she from the X, where I copped my 1st Nina had to leave it
Alone, I won’t pick of my phone for no blah ze blah
plot a coupe d’état, they like who they Huh?
could you do any better? yea these letters are feathers
n when i’m put em together, its better then wen I had barrette under my sweater
for vendettas, tried to stick up myself n now I pick up myself
with some physical health, all we need is some help…. but ya’ll won’t hit me up
cause your sacred
I was there but now i’m here
but ya’l don’t care and I done care
but i still love you though.

“Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” - Pablo Picasso
The practice of Art Therapy allows us access to the unconscious mind through creative techniques which gives us insightful information to investigate the interaction of conscious and unconscious elements in the mind.
This information is what we will study and evaluate in a process to help us see what it is that we are in conflict or afraid of with in ourselves that is a limiting pattern, thought or belief.
