If you do not already have Brené's book The Gifts of Imperfection, you can purchase it at the O Store (or you can look for it at your local bookstore):

Get a sketchbook and gather your art supplies (see details below). You may already have some of these art supplies in your house, so take a look around! You may be surprised with what you already have on hand: stickers, colored paper, colored pens, markers, highlighters, etc.

Primarily, you will need the following:

  • Medium-size wire-bound sketchbook (approximately 7 inches by 7 inches). Make sure the paper weight is 80 to 100 pounds so you can paint in your journal.
  • Markers, double-sided tape, opaque watercolors and paintbrushes
