Not my speed

On those sundresses or sun shirts 
100% rayon or polyester 
run a hair dryer on high back and forth 
 and watch the wrinkles disappear…

Pack the kids Easter basket with stuff they will need for spring not all that junk on aisle that will just be thrown away.

Flip flips
Swim googles
Spring outfit 
Bug catcher 
Swimsuit
Beach pal
Sunglasses
Movie
Journal
Paints

You get the picture... 

I know I should've told you sooner!!! 

Any more suggestions !?

These days

Five books at ONE time,
It's how I get my juices flowing,
Where I get my inspiration.

These days...

To get my thoughts rolling…



Notice, I am not just reading 
But journaling too...

It's easier to journal in the books.
If not, I'd have five more journals.
One for each book being read.

Having too many journals 
these days is already 
A problem of mine.

I've really thought about taking 
All my smaller journals 
Tearing the pages out 
Any putting them in one 
Big journal...

Then I stop and realize
Most pages are written 
On front and back.

Journal managing probs... 

How many times did I use
"These days"?

Egg BONUS

Last year, I filmed my very first online art class,
Live, Learn, Lead.

It was amazingly fun gathering my supplies
and ideas God placed on my heart to make this
class a success. I thank Him for giving me the time,
thoughts, resources and encouragement to push me
through making this class a reality. #allforhim

Because spring is my favorite time of year I wanted
to share with you the bonus clip from Live, Learn, Lead
making hand made eggs.

(see video below~this is from from the actual class)

And I leave you with this....

An artist is not a special person, all of us are special kind of artist. Each of us are born creative, spontaneous thinkers. The only difference between people who are creative and people who are not is a simple belief.

Creative people believe they are creative. People who believe they are not creative, are NOT.

Believing you are creative you become interested in seeking out the skills needed to express your self. Which leads to people who believe they are creative actually become creative.

If you believe you are not creative, then there is no need to learn how to become creative and you don’t. The reality is that believing you are not creative excuses you from trying or attempting anything new.

When someone tells you that they are not creative, you are talking to someone who has no interest and will make no effort to be a creative thinker.
