Art Journal reflections

Celebrating the Year as it Draws to a Close

Before we head into the New Year, I like to use this time to celebrate the year as it draws to a close, reflecting on the events and achievements of the past 12 months. The week between Christmas day and the New Year always seems like a no-mans-land time, where one event is finished and the next, yet to begin. So it becomes a time of reflection and planning. There are many creative ways we can celebrate and reflect and measure how we’ve grown.
