What we say to ourselves matters.
The good news is that our brain can continue to change and evolve even in adulthood. Meaning, even if you’re stuck in some negative thought patterns, that doesn’t always have to be the case.
A practice that has gained some popularity, for good reason, is the practice of repeating and embodying affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements about ourselves that can help us shift our mindset and thought patterns over time.

We can practice embodying affirmations in a number of ways:
My Affirmation Poster workshop combines art making and affirmations, the perfect pairing for some creative self-care that also has the potential to help enhance your wellbeing over time. This online, self-paced workshop involves a simple process that you can repeat over and over again for different pieces of artwork. What you create will be unique to you and include a mantra that resonates most with you in the moment you create it.
I love using magazines in my art, so it’s no surprise that they’re showing up in this workshop. Magazines are accessible (financially, emotionally, creatively), full of imagery, colors, and words, and a great starting point to begin making some art.
