I'm 50, married, and have a 20-year old daughter and 18-year old son; plus our 20-year old nephew lives with us.
Things I do for my soul: * Send long chatty letters and other happy mail * Art journal * Keep a written journal * Draw * Collage * Watercolor and gouache * Cook and bake * Sew * Garden
I sketch, art journal, make mail art, keep a written journal, and I also paint with acrylics and watercolours. I'm trying my hand at illustration lately too. I have several favourite thrift shops where I pick up vintage papers and fabrics and all kinds of stuff that makes me happy and find their way into my work. My daily journal is a Seven Seas blank book filled with Tomoe River paper and I use a fountain pen as much as possible in it.
