Another Afternoon of Art Journaling

a sole tulip on my way to my afternoon of creative play

For the first time in 6 years, I spent Easter weekend away from my family. So I decided to fill my weekend with close friends, yoga, and creative play.  On Good Friday, I met up with my friend Valerie at Teaism for some creative play.

I went to a lunchtime yoga class after meeting with my yoga mentor and then headed to Teaism for lunch and some creative play. On the way, I saw this sole tulip and couldn’t resist capturing it. Then after enjoying some lunch, we took our iced teas and sweets to find a table to settle in at for a couple hours.

We spent our time talking and working on our creative endeavors. Valerie spent her time pulling images and putting them in her new “mini” art journal. I spent my time working on a summer scarf for our friend Julia.

It was a lovely afternoon out and about in DC. And it inspired me to do some art journaling when I came home, but only after I acquired my own “mini” art journal.

After some more yoga on Friday night, I spent the better part of my evening, creating pages filled with inspirations that I’d been collecting for a while. For the first time in a while, I felt how the inspirations worked together.

It was great to feel the inspirations coming together. It happened when I least expected it. I’ve got more creative playtime coming up this weekend, as I enjoy some knitting time with the girls again. I’m looking forward to picking up one of my older projects and getting closer to finishing it. I love finding time for creativity.

When was your last afternoon of creative play? How do you make time for creativity?
