Early this morning I began to haul the supplies and tipi over to the meadow. I chalked our trail marker trees. Soon Chelsea would arrive and together we would raise the tipi and prepare to greet the girls.
As the girls began to arrive, we gave them bottles of nail polish to adorn their creative mitts whilst awaiting the rest of their tribe.
After our opening ceremony, we presented the morning gift, sketchbooks and pencils!
These stunning journals were given to the girls from the generous peeps at Papaya Art. Papaya is family owned and operated by Gina and Anahata Katkin. Papaya is known worldwide for their artistic aesthetic and their beautiful collection of lifestyle and stationery products.
These soulful pencils were created by the lovely and generous Julie of Olivine Atelier. Olivine Atelier makes luscious self-love products for the body and for ritual. Her products are vegan, cruelty free and absolutely heavenly.
The Mighty Girls send heartfelt thanks to Papaya Art and Olivine Atelier for your generosity and support!
On the first day we always begin prepping our art journals. The art journal is the foundation project for our work together and it's a whole lot of fun. It's also a wonderful tool for introspection and self expression. Each day we will add more layers to our journals.
We put the journals in the sun to dry, then took a nature walk.
Along the way we identified a medicinal plant that is a remedy for bee stings and discussed how to use it.
Refreshed from our walk, we began our secondary project...upcycled t-shirt totes! This project is a great way to re-purpose shirts that you've outgrown, but still love. May these totes remind you that you carry within you the wonders you seek outside you.
It was a lovely day of creativity spent outside in nature. Get some rest girls there's more fun tomorrow!
Made so & rooted by love,
