In December, more than during any other month, we need a breather.
In the craziness of festive preparations it's easy to forget about what's most important.
We feel the pressure to purchase things, to get our houses ready for Christmas, to meet expectations, to see people, to go places, to have piles of long to-do lists that never end. Some of us may also feel pressured to reflect on the past 12 months - what we've achieved and what we have failed at.
This year, as in previous years I don't want to let myself fall into that stressful race and I decided to pay more attention to my art and things that really count during this busy, but also glorious time of the year.
I thought, maybe there are more of us?
Maybe you would like to join and squeeze in some me-time into this hectic month? What about clearing our minds of tasks and commitments, once, daily? Let's relax and look into ourselves, let's give our minds and bodies a chance to recharge and let's do it with art.
Join and you will be getting a little treat every day: an inspiring prompt in a video form from Kasia + a time-lapse clip of her art journaling process. The prompts are wide and versatile.
This is 20 days of daily mindful and intuitive art. This is your challenge to pay more attention to daily art making, mindfulness, self-care and having some pure fun in this hectic time.
Everyone is welcome, whatever your skill level is and whatever your preferred techniques are. Come and join right now and let's all meet together to make some art.
Why "Care December"?
In past this offering used to be called "Kasia's Advent Calendar". After three years we've decided to let it evolve and improve, which allowed us to create a more inspiring, holistic offering that is big on CARE and doesn't exclude anyone. On Care December this year:
- We're tackling the real self-care, so no bath bombs and home spa, but the serious stuff - digging deep and improving the relationship we have with ourselves.
- We're sending loving care to others by contributing to the fundraiser.
- We're caring for our most precious relationships with others through the prompts in this offering.
