Rest




Drinking tea always feels luxurious to me. It takes time to prepare and to enjoy. Sipping a favorite blend while reading, drawing, pondering, or visiting with a friend is like a mini-vacation. I immediately go into rest and peace mode with a steaming cup in my hand.

So why not celebrate tea drinking with another activity that brings me rest and peace: art! I created these art journal pages as a result of the Art of Wild Abandonment Two: Bless This Mess online class taught by Junelle Jacobsen. If you're at all interested in learning more about art, I highly recommend this course. Junelle teaches it entirely via video, so you can go at your own pace. It's quite flexible, so whether you're a beginner or more experienced, you can jump into the mess on your terms. And it's quite inexpensive. It'd be a blast if you join me!

(Just FYI, I purchase most of my teas online through The Tea Embassy. They have a passion for tea and for sharing their knowledge of tea with others. I appreciate many of their blends; Almond Cookie Green Tea is my current fave.)
