So I was inspired to do something crafty and creative again. Was the need to be creative a result of my first Artist Date, the gathering on Monday or a combination of both?
A friend and I are just about to start working through Julia Cameron's Artists Way 12-week course. We have been hoping to find an uninterrupted 12-week slot to do it together. And we have. We start this week.
I posted about my vision board back in February. I wanted to share what it looks like now!
The countdown begins. I am about to publish my first eBook on Everyday Delights. The book is called "Documenting a 100 Happy Day Project" which is a compilation of posts from my first blog in 2015. That original blog site has now disappeared. This book is a two part compilation of those stories and high-quality photographs from 2015 written for the blog.
With only have between 7300 and 7000 days (if I live to 70 or 75!) left to have adventures, I really want to experience my travels with awareness and joy - not just see them as a list of places to be ticked off. I am making a promise to myself, this time it will be different. I will keep a traveler's journal.
The idea of playing with words has been incubating in my mind for a while and I think I am going to try and get a new challenge up and running here on WordPress and I'm hoping I can generate interest in this wonderful community.
My sister Julie is also an accomplished watercolour artist. On a hot, sticky summer’s day late last December, we sat down together with a cup of tea and we chatted about her art.
If you want to do a 100-day challenge of some sort, use one of these creative trackers to mark your progress. If you love to colour in and tick things off, these are for you! You can print them off yourself and get going!
Conceptual photographs and six-word stories
Linus Pauling brings the idea of satisfaction and curiosity together beautifully in this quote: "Satisfaction of one's curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life."
