Hi I’m Aneika. I have been scrapbooking and crafting since I discovered project life in 2013. I feel like every project could use a dash of pink and a bit of sparkle. I got into project life as a way of documenting my son’s birth and journey to motherhood. I quickly learned that crafting was a form of therapy for me. Here I was able to express myself and move through emotions I was having trouble expressing. On my journey to motherhood I endured a 10 year battle with infertility and recurrent miscarriages. During that time I dealt with many emotions of grief, bouts of depression and shame. After I had my son I realized how much of a journey the healing process was. I have found healing through all sorts of projects; journaling, making embellishments, shaker cards, planners and painting.
I created two project life style layouts as an intro to the Light the Path workshop. These intro pages state where I am in my journey of healing and what I hope to accomplish. I am at the point where I feel like I have done the internal work and am ready to move into a different phase. I feel like every journey comes to an end or a transition into a new chapter. Crafting has become a big part of my self care but I have also used it as a coping mechanism. As I move through this workshop I want to explore crafting as a way of celebrating my creativity as something that makes me happy rather than a vise.
In this layout I wanted to include a picture of myself in my element. The picture I chose is not my best but it was a happy moment in my craft room drinking way too much coffee. The second is a picture of my desk after a watercolor journal session. I hope you were inspired no matter where you are in your healing journey.
Thanks so much for joining us today! See you again soon!
