Art work

One of my New Year's goals is to do more creative things.
For the past couple of months,
I have been doing a mother/daughter online
art class with my girls
courtesy of

I have mentioned the Brave Girls before on my blog
they are very inspiring and 
are all about making girls, young and old
feel empowered, special, loved and brave.
I was super excited to see them offer
online courses last year.
I took one that was called Soul Restoration.

We made our very own Soul Book.

Here are a few pages of mine




It was a work of art and I was so excited that I,
an totally UN-artistic person,
could actually do art.
; )
I love colour so my book was colourful and over the top girly.
It's all up to you how you want to create your book.
But they give you LOTS of guidance for those of us who need it!

So right now, my girls and I are finishing up 
the mother/daughter course.
We made books to tell each other how we feel about one another.



We made Truth and Love boxes to hold beautiful truth rocks
that we made each other.




And we made beautiful 'I am becoming...'
canvases. 
These, we worked on today and I think they turned out so pretty.


They won't ever hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art
but they were so much fun to do.
Plus this entire course really gets you to talk to your daughters, 
to let them know how you feel about them and 
you get to hear how they feel about you too.
The good parts. : )
It was a hugely bonding experience.
And FUN!

I am taking another online class that starts
February 1st from a different website.
She does a lot of journaling which I also do
so I am SUPER excited to get started.
This one will be harder I think.
I'll let ya know how it goes.
: )

Hello lovely

Well I think you are a wonderful soul for doing all of this - for you to get in touch with your inner soul and for you to be the best guidance and teacher for those lovely girls - what more could they ask for? :)

hugs to all

Have a wonderful day,

Sheri, you are an artist in my book! I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit. These are fabulous and what an excellent way to bond even more so with your girls. I think you're such an exemplary parent. Do you realize the wonderful memories you're creating with your girls? They will always remember these projects. I wish more parents would do that with their kids. Fabulous! Keep us posted and have a lovely weekend.
