I am so happy I decided 2017 was going to be my year for self care. One way I decided to do this was with the purchase of a Naturally Nourishing Soap Box Subscription from Zakia Ringold. I met Zakia on Periscope, where I was quickly drawn in by her personality and passion for soap making! I'm serious.. You know how folks kid and watching paint dry.. well not so funny, because I do that! But also, I tuned in for episode after episode to watch Zakia make soap and her exfoilliating sugar scrub y'all!! This chick is a the real deal!! While I won't be taking pictures in the bath (haha) I will be reporting to you all just how everything goes with this soap, which by the way smells so damn good and clean!! I'm excited, so excited wrote a post!! Happy New to You Year!!

Today is day 5 of the introductions and my name is Tamiko McCurry. Some of you know me as MEKOfoSHO on many of my social media platforms! I am a born and raised Chicagoan! Growing up in Chicago, IL, I never thought one could be an artist unless they had sold work in galleries or were acknowledged/recognized by some formally educated artistic community, until I became an art journaler/mixed media artist . So many can'ts became cans and because of that, I EMBRACE the title, ARTIST.
I am totally stoked and honored to say I am a part of the One BADASS Art Journal Online Workshop of 2017!! ::insert super loud wild woman yells here:: . As I look at the picture below, I think... She's a BADASS.. She's a BADASS! & She's a BADASS and so on!! I hope that you will join us and EMBRACE your inner BADASS too!!
Check out this awesome intro!!!
It is such a wonderful feeling to be in a line up with such amazing artists and/or sister-friends. Some I have admired over some time, some I have personally taken e-courses or watched youtube videos from, some I have watched their work transcend beyond anything we could have possibly fathomed and some I can't wait to experience (smiles). This will be my first time as an online instructor and I am feeling an abundance of emotions, most importantly gratitude, at being given an opportunity to share with you all, something I once only did to keep my own sanity (smiles). Thank you Tiare Smith!!

This month was the first month I was able to be in my first journal letter swap. Its with a wonderful group of ladies on Facebook. The only allow members in once a month. Once you are in, you are truly able to experience their spirit. The idea is to make a signature that starts from a 8x8 piece of paper. You add four additional sheets and you can stitch or staple it together. You are on the cover and the inside cover pages. The last page is an address list of the participants, that way you are never without a list and you always know who is next! This is the book I sent, all my partners are in Australia, which means 2 weeks for them to receive by post. If you would like detailed information on the journaling letter group, leave me a message below and I will contact you with more information! Thanks for reading!!!
