Goodbye + Hello Get Messy!

This day is an amazing day, for many reasons….

Today is link up day…

Today is the last day of Get Messy as you know it…

Today is the last day of Get Messy before our holiday break…

Today is the day we are telling you that there is something coming. Something big…

Today is the day that one week from today we will tell you what the big, excited, new Get Messy endeavour is…

But that will have to wait until next week…..

Today is the day we are sharing our responses from this months prompt. I was stumped on what my one word to describe myself right now would be. But as I was honest with myself I found it. It was actually quite therapeutic to repeat over and over again a word that is not the prettiest. I have felt like I am grasping for so much lately. For motivation, for a clear direction in which to go, for so much. And to flesh that out and get all those struggles and fears and worries on paper was just what I needed. Its not the prettiest page Ive ever made, but it perfectly reflects my mood and was just good for me. Thats what art journaling is about. Also, it was quite the realization that I have too many letter stickers and I totally hoard them…Grasping art journal by Lauren LikesAnd I obviously had to make a little ‘farewell to Get Messy as we know it” page….I love the striped background and those sparkly pink thickers!

    Hey Lauren, so sad to be posting for the last time like we used to the last half a year for Get Messy. it was such a fun and inspiring journey with you ladies. Thank you for starting it. And I’m so excited for Get Messy part II. 😉
    And I’m totally with you on the “Grasping” page. My word is “struggling” and has almost the same content. Maybe it’s this time of year, that makes us longing for more…
    xx Sabine

    I#m so excited for the next step of Get Messy!! And I think the introduction of your blog post with the hints is just awesome! 😉

    I feel like many of us will have pages that reflect some sense of searching/longing/unrest/… Like Sabine said, maybe it’s the time of the year..

    Your pages are always so colorful, just like your personality my dear! I really love how you used those alphas on your grasping page and the fact that not all the words are complete. On to better and bigger things. It’s nice to say goodbye to the old format, to give thanks for all this group has given us and to ring in Get Messy 2.0. Hugs !
