* 12 Days of Art Therapy: DAY FOUR *

Instead of creating visual art for this day, I ended up writing a personal letter to express my feelings. It ended up being too personal for me to share on this blog, but I wanted to post about it.

This project is turning out to be a little bit beyond art therapy, as I am encompassing a variety of different ways to process through my feelings. I'm sharing with hopes that if anyone else is feeling overwhelmed, that they might use these kinds of little projects to feel heard.

In light of recent tragedies in America, it is important more than ever to make sure we take care of ourselves. Bottled up feelings end up coming out sideways, and everyone needs a safe way to express their emotions.

My love and prayers go out to all families affected by loss this holiday season.

* 12 days of Art Therapy *

Instead of 12 days of Christmas, I'm doing 12 days of art therapy as I process through some personal emotional shifting. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to have so many feelings rush through your body and try to function as a "normal" human being at work and in your community. Art helps me let go of some of my emotions when I don't know what else to do.


I didn't have many art supplies around, so I used this styrofoam block, a sharpie, and some scissors. I love that art can be made from so little.

* Let it SNOW *

It's strange to spend my first winter without snow in California. So to help me feel more at home, here are some shots of snow:
