True friends don’t cough on each other. And they wash their hands at every turn (but that I had hard time figuring out how to paint birds washing hands).
I don’t know what will be coming in the next day, week, or month, but whatever comes, our art supplies can help us get through it.
It’s true that paint or gel plates or stencils don’t fight germs but they can at least help us process all that’s happening.
The handwashing and social distancing will help combat the germs. Taking even just a few minutes to play with our art supplies can keep us sane.
And my husband says I could use a bit more sanity in my life right now. What about you?
Carolyn, I started art journaling about 20 years ago when my world was falling apart. I had a place to write out what I was feeling and then cover it up as I played and let my stress go. I’m back at it now. The play takes me out of my own mind. I hope you and your family are well!
