social spark Aisling Beatha: ADVENT 2006


Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy your stay, however short, and find something that interests and blesses you.

The tabs just below will take you to posts of particular topics. So if you are looking for my posts on food, fitness or creativity, you will find them there. You will also find my posts on thankfulness or other more contemplative posts, as well as a set of posts with traditional blessings from a number of different cultures.

Many many things I will share as part of my advent celebrations here on on Zoe's Blog!

First, let me share about an art journal class I am taking over at Shimelle's:

I'm really looking forward to this, but I am already BEHIND! Yep, blame it on that Tonsillitis, but I didn't get signed up until the morning the class started, and didn't get my journal until today!

I am trying to post a photo of my supplies so far, to no avail. Here you go, I sorted it:

For now, MY Manifesto for this journal, for this year:

Manifesto: Noun. A declaration of one's intentions.

Starting December first, I will keep a Christmas journal. In it, I will write something every day to reflect on the holidays of my past, enjoy the holidays of the present and dream about the holidays of my future. To some, this will be a stack of papers and trivial scribbles, but not to me. I am taking back my Christmas, I am letting it be something I relish and, most importantly, I am giving at least fifteen minutes every day to myself no matter how crazy this season becomes. I hope you will share, encourage and understand as I make something with my own hands, my own words and my own memories.

I may post some or all of my entries here. Other artists are doing this with me, and you can see there work at Written Down. Or you may join us.

Above all: enjoy the season.
I will.

Other things I am doing this advent to follow in another post.
