Well Spring has arrived (mostly) and we’ve just had a relaxing and fun week here. Brussels is full of the most beautiful pink blossom trees and the weather was unbelievably warm for a few days. I managed to make a good start on my container garden which I have no experience in but am very excited about nonetheless! As my own mission to live a more environmentally friendly and chemical-free life continues I constantly find new ideas for how I can do things better. So the idea of growing a few salad goodies and some herbs has big appeal… below is my tip for instant garden gratification 😉
Why keep a visual diary or sketchbook? Whether or not you call yourself an artist, a maker or creative at all there are huge benefits to keeping one. For anyone who already has a written journal or diary you know how nice it is to look back at where you were in mind and body at a certain time in the past. A visual journal is just the same but without text. There are no limits and bad drawings, messy pages and writing are entirely allowed.
