In a lake nearby

This week Colleen’s Poetry challenge is Poet’s choice.

You know how much I love photography, it’s a form of expression for me. I try to show my feeling through my clicks. The same in relation to writing poems. I love it when I can put both together: photography and poems.

I took this photo few weeks ago. Hubby and I were strolling by a lake nearby and we saw this gorgeous swan in another side of the lake, they never came close before, so we didn’t expect when he/she started to swim towards us. It was a lovely surprise! We were so happy, like kids when receiving a new toy. We took photos and recorded this gorgeous bird. We really enjoyed that moment.

Hope you like the photo and the poem.

100 day project

Today is starting the #100 day project! It’s a famous Instagram challenge that has been going on for few years. It consists of doing some art related project for 100 days. Something simple that you can do in 10 min to sparkle your creativity. I’ve completed this challenge a few times, and I’ll join this year again.

My project theme is 100 days of messy art cards. Here is my first one:

Hope you are going to follow me along. I’m not sure yet if I’ll post one everyday, maybe not, but I should do a weekly recap for the cards.

In case you want to join, check me out on IG #teandpaper or check the hashtag #100dayproject to know the challenge details.

Good Morning! Here are a few pages from an IG art party this weekend:

It’s the journey that’s important, not the getting there.

prompt 3: growth

Today is starting #100dayproject, where we choose one creative project and stick with it for 100 days. I’ve joined it for many years and it’s great to see all the work done at the end of the project. This year I’ll make an art card per day.

Have a great and safe week!

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

Sylvia Plath

I hope you are doing OK!

Finally, I’m settling down into a routine of staying home. It isn’t the same thing as a staycation, where we are at home to relax, forget about work and enjoy time with the family.

Stay home now, means taking care of the home, the kids and still keep up with the office work. Everybody expects a lot from you.

How can I set up priorities? Should I get ready the lunch for the kids or should I work on a project deadline? 

Little by little, step by step, I’m adapting to the new, creating a routine, and most importantly saving time for my me time, where I can spend few minutes journaling, blogging and enjoying my garden now that the weather is getting warm. 

Stay safe!
