Rural Joy - A Tutorial for Soul Journey

Thank you so much to the beautiful girls @ SoulJourney for asking me to be a part this year!





 I took a moment for some reflection & it has seriously helped me be at peace with my struggle to connect with a higher "being." I put being in quotes because it could (and does) also mean IDEA. just.. something OTHER than what we know physically here on Earth.

:)

Here is the little art journal I created :





I'm REALLY excited to move forward putting celestial & other worldly things inside!

Here is the video :
