How I do this:

Cosmic Smash Booking


What is Cosmic Smash Booking?  

The Cosmic Smash Book method, developed by, Catt Geller, is an adaptable, flexible, unique, thoughtful, enjoyable way of art journaling for mental and emotional processing of things within our hearts and minds. Just by doing this method, I also think we can process things physically and spiritually, as well as things past, present, and future.

This creativity method is a gentle, deep, thorough, non-threatening way to express and process thoughts, feelings, questions, emotions, hopes, dreams, etc. within the full gamut of human experience.  The possibilities are limitless because creativity is limitless.

The value of this unique creativity method is immeasurable in the impact it can have, as well as it being useful as a lifelong tool. Incorporating the five senses, movement, breathing, deep listening and more while using lines, shapes, colors, mark making, collage, writing, paint, oil pastels, colored pencils, crayons, pens, markers, etc. you can discover what your heart has to say and create your own Heart Art in a Cosmic Smash Book.

- Offered via Zoom or in person.  Please email for information.


Mixed Media Art Journaling -  Let’s doodle, jot, scribble & otherwise express thoughts, feelings, ideas, dreams, observations, etc. using colors, lines, shapes, patterns, torn paper, continuous line drawing, lettering, collage, mark making & more in a variety of art media. Ages 9 -15.

- Offered via Zoom or in person.  Please email for information.

Cart Lady Classes -  Oooo, what does the Cart Lady have today?  What will she pull out of her cart?  Is it a fun puzzle, simple art project, educational game, peppy dance music, finger puppets.... Play is an important part of learning, so let's play and learn together.  Ages 5 - 8.

Something FUN for you!

I've used products from Rocky Mountain Oils for several years.  I'd like to invite you to browse their website.  Often the five senses are included in what I do.  Using essential oils is an easy way to include the sense of smell.  Here is a link for you to use for a discount, 25% off your first purchase and I will earn "oil'ty points" if you spend over $25.  You must be signed in as a 'guest' in order to use it.  https://prz.io/rR8ROmh0sQtmar
