Today is the first day of #artjournaladvent2022

Every day, I receive a prompt to create a page in my advent art journal.

Today’s prompt was


It immediately made me think of myself as a little girl.
A time without worries, where cutting, pasting and creating was a daily activity, just for fun, no pressure, not even an expected outcome.

I loved paper back then and still do.

I loved creating back then and still do.

I had so much ENTHUSIASM back then.
And so much less nowadays.

I want to change that.

More and more I add activities to my days that allow me to be that little girl.
To create just because it’s fun.
To do things just because they provide joy.

Play for the sake of play.

I have pictures of that little girl in a flower dress printed out in my home office as a daily reminder.

I find she pops up more and more and that makes me happy.
