Summer Begins

I taught my last class on Thursday then spent the rest of my week getting ready for father's day... and now, I am ready for planning some time to be creative.  I am a constant list maker... unfortunately, I am not as great at completing the lists that I create.  Life is still overwhelming- but maybe that is just the nature of having a full life.

So... in the interest of trying to organize my chaotic life, I thought I should create a list for my summer!  Who knows, maybe I will surprise myself and actually complete a couple of things!
  1. Work on the creative projects around reading for Caya.  She has been so super interested in reading lately!  I want to do whatever I can to nurture her curiosity and help her have fun learning.
  2. Plan and run my first art therapy group on the coast.  I have been tossing around some ideas with a friend about running some art therapy weekend workshops.  I am not entirely sure of the subject matter- some ideas I have been thinking of are infertility, loss, and creative blocks.
  3. Start writing an art therapy intervention book.  I have been working in this field for such a long time- and I have so much practical knowledge that I think could be useful.   Even if I got a basic outline done, I would be happy.
  4. Sew!  
  5. Complete at least two new paintings- and post at least five paintings by the end of summer.   I have a few pieces that still need to be photographed.  
So that is my future.  Of course, I would also like to spend more time with my family.  We had such  a fun day today- just being together, eating good food, and celebrating.  One of the gifts  I got my husband was a palbum from palbums.com.  They are utterly adorable mini albums you can keep in your pocket-  I totally love them!

Hope you get to accomplish some of those exciting things on your list this summer :) I'm a really good list maker too, unfortunately I have the same problem with completing the things on it. :D

Absolutely love the image in this post!

Big hugs,
Sprite
