It is time for the first of many leaps to joy I’m going to take this year. A leap, in the context of this website, is taking a huge step towards more joy in my life.

The leaps I’m challenging myself to take are all either things I’ve done before and enjoyed, or things I’ve always wanted to do, but was too scared etc to do.

A leap is only a leap when I go beyond what I think I can do.

In this case, that means that I’m going to not just artjournal like I used to do, but also document some of the process in creating a page on Instagram. Might even make videos, given that I am all about taking leaps 🙂

And I’m going to make a huuuuuge canvas using some of my artjournaling techniques (like a collage), interwoven with other ideas I have.

I’ve wanted to make that canvas for so so so long, and now I’m finally going to take the leap and do it!

Do be sure to follow my Instagram, as I will post more regular updates there.

Otherwise, stay tuned for next week’s blog post on my progress and more small leaps I’m taking!
