I did this brush lettering yesterday for day 19 of Get Messy’s class at @creativebug in honor of date night. And I picked up some cool ephemera to use for day 20 🖤 #creativebuggetsmessy #vsartjournal

20/30 Let that crap go, girl #30lists

Excellent date night at Lychee, preceded by After Dark Photofair #thisismyshanghai

What Does Your Garden Grow? We explored the theme of the garden in the Rituals class; it’s definitely a recurring concept in my work. So I used the self-portrait stencil I made in the class and paired it with some of the gelli prints I made following @catseatdogsmakes’s tutorial 🌿 #creativebuggetsmessy #vsartjournal #ritualsclass #gmrituals

All caught up for the first 6 months of 2018, which turns out to be our last six months in Beijing. Very happy to have a record of this time ✨ #pocketscrapbooking #studiocalico #messybox

19/30 oh the places you will go! #30lists

@getmessyartjournal has been having an interesting conversation on the concept of balance. It’s something that has been on my mind this week. I’ve been working out 3-4 times a week since we got here. Being active helps my mental state and stops me from going down a dark hole of poor self-esteem. But this week I’ve had zero motivation and have done nothing. I think it’s because the adrenaline has gone down after being so sollicited by this move.

This teaches me that I can’t be in beast mode all the time. So until I’ve refilled my cup, I find balance in other ways of taking care of myself. Balance is a fluid concept and this is something I try to be mindful of: that you won’t need the same things all the time and that that is ok.
Today called for my favorite homemade juice: grapefruit, orange, carot and ginger. Santé!
