The Gratitude Garland™ Workshop
Come, play and create your own
FEATURED in Somerset Studio Magazine. USA
Format: You will receive daily e-mails for 30 days with instructions.
I am excited and privileged to hold a license for The Gratitude Garland™ which was created by Marney Makridakis founder of Artella.
I have done this workshop a few times through the years and love it and wanted to share it with you. In this course, you’ll make a “Gratitude Garland™” created out of 30 decorated strips of paper. Each day you will create one strip as a miniature art journal of gratitude. It’s a ritual that is simple enough for anyone to do (including kids) and quick enough for anyone to STICK to. At the end of the 30 days, you’ll have a beautiful garland to use as a decoration or give as a special gratitude gift.
In addition to 30 days of thought-provoking, yet simple-to-follow, prompts to inspire your garland-making, you’ll also receive a workbook with over 150 ‘Thanks Clippings’ which are images, organized by theme, pre-sized and ready to print out and cut and paste onto your daily slips if you wish to use.
Marney started her first Gratitude Garland when she wanted to be in a daily process of art journaling, but it felt like too much pressure. She wanted to create a ritual that she could keep up with, and enjoy. The process is simple but the results are sensational. It really is fun and great when you see your garland growing. I have used it groups, classes and workshops.
By using words and art in a playful way, your creative expressions will instantly give you a sense of gratitude and that feel good feeling. You will be reminded of what is working for you offering you an opportunity to tap into this energy when things get a little tough.
And best of all…THIS is a ritual you can keep up with! Even your family can join in the fun! It only takes a few minutes a day to create your Gratitude Garland, BUT the quality time you’ll spend with your imagination, play and spirit will go a very long way.
You CAN make life more meaningful, fun …and play can help you do it!
You will love this.
