Living in a rental with such a small space makes me long a for a large white creative space such as artist Tenka Gammelgaard's black and white studio and home.
I'm particularly enamored with the stacks of thick large portfolio bags on her studio floor and the shelves in her home.

A year ago, I read about this age old health practice called dry brushing. It's popular in Scandinavian spas where most use this technique prior to hopping into the sauna. In my case, I do it post workout while my blood flow is really going. I find that it especially helps a lot when I feel like I'm about to be ill or when my skin is acting up.

I recently found an article about it. Here's what you need to know:

1 Start with a brush specifically designed for dry brushing. Some people recommend vegetable-based brushes. Be warned: Your skin may be very sensitive to dry brushing at first, so go gently.

2 Work the brush in circular movements, starting with the soles of your feet, working upward, and always in the direction of your heart. (When stimulating circulation and lymph system, you always want to be brushing in the direction of venous and lymphatic flow.) Proceed in the order below.

- Soles of feet
- Tops of feet
- Calves
- Thighs

3 Move to the back. Brush in the direction of the heart, alternating sides, in the order below.

- Buttocks
- Lower back
- Sides
- Lower abdomen
- Upper abdomen
- Chest

4 From the chest, start on your arms.

- Fingers
- Palms
- Backs of hands
- Forearms
- Elbows
- Upper arms

5 Once you’re done, your skin should feel soft and alive and ready for a shower.

6 Visualize any negative feelings being washed away, circling down the drain. After your shower, do your self-massage with oil or lotion as usual.

EDIT:I forgot to add, it's best to dry brush earlier in the day as it stimulates the body and blood circulation much like exercise does. It may take longer to fall asleep if this is done at night before bed.

I am absolutely crazy about this lamp! How can I not? I can already picture the surface it would go on if I got it. ♥

Wishing for a little bit of this so I can snuggle under the covers with a cuppa and a good book.

Some new work and my art journal. I was feeling a tad playful the other day.
