You are an explorer

Feb 24, 2022Mood Board

This mood board is pretty much exactly my mood the last two weeks.

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of art journaling, scrapbooking, collaging… whatever it’s called.

It’s been a meditative thing for me to do daily; rummaging through my piles of scraps, stickers, and clippings, and the simple act of gluing, taping, and arranging it on my traveler’s notebook in a way that feels ikigai for me.

It makes me feel like I’m traveling through my everyday life in a new explorative way.

Wherever you are, hope you’re well, healthy, and getting fresh air and sunshine whenever you can.

xoxo, Nerelle
