cropped-10593049_919240764791868_8744999034121126288_n.jpgMy name is Effy, and I’m a journal artist & on line teacher. I like to write & share about art journaling as a spiritual practice, and my go-to tool for healing & life documentation. I’m a mother of grown children, and I live with an adorable furbaby in a three story walk up apartment in Canada.

Against The Secret Sorrows

Yesterday, I cast on some luscious sock yarn and spent the evening knitting p5, k5 in the round until I had a cuff. Then I switched to straight knit. I probably should have made it a bit bigger, but I'm okay with that. I like tight socks. I find them comforting. I...

This Week Was A Bear

I am just now feeling like I'm 'back' from fest. This is a thing that happens every time I go. Re-entry is a bear. Some of it is about unpacking, laundry, etc., but most of it is the deeply felt difference between being in fest space and being in the 'real world'. It...

Hornet Medicine

I spent the weekend with the land and chosen family, and here are some of my highs and some of my lows. Arriving on site. That feeling of 'home' settling over me like a warm cloak. All the hugs and hellos, and seeing the familiar faces of people I only get to see once...

Edge Walker

In my last post, I talked about how hard won most of my me-ness has been in the face of a shitty (understatement) early life. What I rarely talk about, though are the benefits of said shitty early life, and there are some. I always hesitate to offer this perspective,...

This is 49 – Trigger Alert

So, this is 49. {Trigger alert for childhood abuse and strong language related to such.} I remember being a young thing - like, seven - and realizing that I would one day be the same age as the adults around me. This came as one of those nerve jangling, bone rattling...

This, Too, Is The World

Sometimes the world takes me down a few notches. I know you know exactly what I mean. You can only buck up and fling glitter for so long before a blanket fort and an extended cuddle with the furbabes becomes a *requirement* rather than a luxury. Yesterday was one of...

Sunday Swoon

My very favourite kind of spread is the kind that grows over a period of days. I come back to it over and over again, adding little bits and bobs of things, spending as much time as I have each day until it's done. The above is an example of the kind of thing that...

Revel

Today is the 30th day in my 30 day BLOG ALONG, and it's also my 49th birthday! For the last 30 days, I have reacquainted myself with the habit of writing out my inner landscape in an attempt to document my life but also to provide something useful, uplifting, or shame...
