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.

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...

What’s Next!?! A September Recap.

Today is my last day as a 48 year old on planet earth (this time around, at least). Tomorrow, I turn 49 AND I will have completed my 30 day blogging challenge. I'm really happy to report that I am completely unfazed by the whole 'last year before 50' thing, though I...

Bread Sticks

You know how, when you go to any kind of nice restaurant, they offer you something before the main course? Bread sticks, usually, or some kind of nibble to tide you over? You're allowed to eat those. That might seem like an obvious statement, but it wasn't always...

On Being Human In Times Like These

We're having a heat wave of sorts here in Southwestern Ontario, which means the AC has been going full blast for days, and I've been walking around wondering where my Autumn went. Something about the hurricanes pushing warm air up this way, etc. etc. Whatever it is,...
