I have loaded up a bunch of new videos this past month. It’s wild to think that it’s already February. I hope y’all are staying warm out there!!!
In a bit of news, I have moved my health and wellness content over to it’s own channel. I found that anytime I mentioned my health on Comfortable Shoes Studio YT people left, in droves. So, the new channel is Less is MOre Healthy and I’m doing accountability vlogs and documenting my walks with my weird little videos. I’m still doing vlogs on the Comfortable Shoes channel but they will be specific to art and creativity.
Here’s a list of videos, with links this time!
I realize I didn’t post one of these over the holidays so this is going to be a LONG list of videos.
Art Journaling 005
VLOG 025 Authenticity
Studio Philosophies 009
I have been working on a video about values journaling. This is the blog post for that video.
Start your values journaling with this worksheet:
Circle all the things on the list that are important to you. EVERYTHING.
Then organize them into similar linked lists, try to get it to 10.
Write about each of the 10 lists/words.
Don’t do this in one sitting. Spend some time with each topic. Write at least page in your journal for each one. Ask yourself why is this important to you? Why did you pick this? Go deep. Now go deeper.
Now take each theme and explore it in your art journal.
The hardest question you will ask for each theme/topic is: Am I living up to this value right now? If so how? If not how can I? What changes can I make in my life to align my life with my values?
When you start to think about changes, remember that you’ll need to break each one into small manageable steps to make achievable goals. (Check out SMART goals.)
Here are some questions to ask yourself after you’ve found your words and are exploring your responses.
James Clear’s value’s journaling post, check out his section about his integrity report. He’s got good questions there.
The post with the new videos for the week!
I think I’m going to do a weekly post here about all the videos I’ve loaded that week. So this post is this week’s installment of YouTube videos!
I’ve published a few new videos since my last update here. I am making a plan to be sure to announce them here as well as everywhere else.
I posted a new art journaling video. This one using a ton of personal ephemera from my life. Just things I’ve amassed over the last few weeks. If you’ve seen any of my VLOGS you’ll recognize some of the stuff.
A short video musing on planning and thinking about pages before working on them.
I like to think of this as an artsy fartsy DIY little vid about my love of coffee, ko-fi and my patrons on Ko-Fi. Y’all buy me koffees and I get to do cool stuff. Now I need to remember to turn the camera on when I do it!!!
I go deeper on my studio philosophies.
