Random glimpses into the thoughts of a woman- searching for life's answers - or maybe just asking the questions and living them. Trying to live creatively and authentically. Learning to BE - HERE - NOW.
I have been working on a few projects - don't know that I'm completely happy with them, but I do learn something each time I create. My daughter and I played with dominoes a bit over the holidays. It was so much fun that I had my art class at the co-op I teach at make them last week. They enjoyed the process immensely.
I have art stuff spread all over the dining room table - We haven't seen the top of that table since Christmas dinner. It is a nice chaotic mess right now. I seem to be able to create better with a bit of mess around. I've been looking at other blogs and feel inspired to try all sorts of things.
I have two other projects I want to post but of course the battery on the camera is dead. Oh well, I'm off to play some more!
I am not talking resolutions this year. I never have really set New Years Resolutions, except for that year I decided to drink more wine! That was a great year. I think I meant I would just learn to enjoy myself - altho' there was more wine involved.
This year - I am not setting myself up for resolutions. I do want to create more - to experience the present moment - to let myself "be". I've closed myself off so much in the past. I hope to open my "self" to life. How did I lose that?
A friend gave me this tiny little mulberry paper notebook that I've begun altering. It is SO MUCH FUN!
No expectations - just this tiny little space to alter. I love it.
Then - I have this idea in my head of a bigger project. I've actually started it with paper background of differnet scrap paper. I don't know. I have this idea in my head, something to do with green, goddesses, etc. I shall see what happens.
In the meantime - while I was with my eldest we saw a display of altered dominoes and decided to try it. We have had so much fun! Such a tiny surface. Again, I've just decided to play. No expectations, just see what happens.
