Getting ducks and rocks in a row…

Little Happy and I are enjoying the first week back to a normal routine around here.

I am trying stay present (my word of the year for 2013)

and at the same time, get my ducks in a rowWinking smile,

by getting back into the practice of going for walks, doing meditation, and making plans with friends.

All of  which really help my mental and physical well being in the hard winter months.

I am so happy that my creative energy is still high.

I have been happily stitching up little bag homes for my Rock Beings, using my own hand dyed wool bits and a lovely rainbow of embroidery floss.

Like the rocks, the wool seems to let me know what design it wants.

I am so loving process and the end results !

You knew I'm sure that one of your rock beings would find it's way to my home, in it's little home...I knew exactly which one as soon as I saw it. woo hee, lucky me!!!

I love Happy's dreads...maybe that's what I need for my head to help me beat the winter blahs...some brightly coloured bits dangling from my head!!

Here is to beating the winter blahs and to increased creativity!! xoxox

I am always inspired when you are inspired. You light an art fire in my soul, my fellow Kimster. I like your word (I have chosen "let go" and/or "letting go") and that you seem to be taking good care of yourself during these particularly hard months. This morning the light was this strange pink hue and last night coming home from work I could feel the light lasting for a few more minutes. I read a story on CBC about a big celebration way up north where they welcomed back the light this week - the village actually could see a thin strip of sunlight on their horizon. I don't know how they do it...

I love your rock beings and the bags are a perfect accompaniment to them.
And I received my "word" rock with porcelain box and I love it! It lifts my word to a much higher level of importance. Thanks so much!
Hugs

It can be an incredibly challenging task to determine the best art programs among the wide selection of choices available. There are so many options it can get overwhelming. Artists emerge from every walk of life, with styles and art forms as diverse as the individual perception of what constitutes good art. Tolstoy defined art as “one of the conditions of human life.” Indeed, this is evident by the continuously growing number of art forms present in society.

Inherent creativity should be present within you if you want to venture into a program at animation colleges.
