Nurt Thurs – A pop of colour

“Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours;

let me swallow the sunset

and drink the rainbow.”

Khalil Gibran

For many days the sun hasn’t shown up, it’s grey in the mornings when I leave for work and dark when I come back. The days are getting longer, but the grey is sticking around here. I bought yellow flowers in the weekend, they are so pretty and make my kitchen warm and colourful.

I haven’t joining Nurturing Thursday for so long. I miss it, and I think it’s time to start to post more, to have and to give more inspiration.

Coziness

Nothing better than leaving the office a little bit early without saying/explaining anything to anyone, just grabbing my bag and my coat and coming back home.

A stolen moment. It’s precious because it isn’t an ordinary moment, it’s something that I was craving for, I listening to my soul and said I deserve it, I need it, so I gave up everything else to be with myself. To be at home, warm, alone, with a cup of tea and a book.

The photo above is from the weekend when we were snowed in. Now I’m writing this blog post and wishing lots of stolen moments to you and of course to myself as well.

Creating

Old art journals

Art journal, visual journal, collage journal… there are so many names for it. I don’t know which one I prefer to use, but I do enjoy to express my feelings adding images to the pages of my notebooks.

This weekend I joined a art party on Instagram, few hours creating together with other ladies from around the world. Three prompts in 2 hours.

Polka dots

The first prompt was Polka dots. This is my new journal, you can see the cover on the first photo (bottom right). I was using it for the first time, it’s not easy to start a new journal, the first page is always a challenge. I wanted it to be messy and full of possibilities to give me freedom to work on the other pages without boundaries.

Travelling

Second prompt was about travelling. Places we want to visit. This is a difficult one, I want to go to many places from deserts to mountains. Of course, beaches are always on the list.

A quote

The third and last prompt was a quote by Oscar Wilde “Memory … is the diary that we all carry about with us.” We always want to carry good memories, things that have made us happy and loved. Tiny moments along the road.

I’ll be co-hosting next month art party, please let me know if you would like to join it.
