While this summer is devoted to writing and travel with family and friends, I’m thinking of you, and how to support YOUR creative dreams and adventures.
Keeping journals, sketchbooks and art journaling are the foundation of my work as an artist, writer and teacher.
So I’ve rounded up some resources to help you create more — even if you’ve got little time or space in your life. Even while traveling!
How to Start Writing and Keep Writing
Expressive writing is one of the best ways to start writing. Keep your writing private, like you would a journal or diary. Here are some step-by-step tips to help you WRITE NOW. Enjoy!
How to Make Art While You Travel
It is so satisfying to have a simple and easy way to document your travels. I’ve kept illustrated travel journals my whole life, and am constantly experimenting with this art form.
Travel & Art Journaling Inspiration
You do not have to be a writer or artist to keep a visual travel journal!
If you want to travel with me and learn how to create your own richly embellished travel journal, then pop over to the in-person workshops page to see what’s coming up.
Enjoy, and Go Gently
PS. Thanks to my a-sister, Jen (my real-life baby sister and assistant) my blog has a beautiful new look, and is finally working again after being a technological hot mess for about a year.
Lemme know what you think! We are still working on some stuff, but it’s coming along!
PPS. Jen is totally OK with me referring to her as my baby sister.
PPPS. Thanks to our middle sister, Lori, for snapping the above photo. I wish there were a better term for middle sister, especially for Lori, who is a real life kind of Charlie’s Angel (yes, she is a badass officer of the law with guns and everything—and as you can see, also rocks the mini skirt).
Sister Lori is mama to Thomas, my teenage mystic nephew who’s artistry inspired the post: When You Feel Lost and Utterly Alone.
