Hello!

Hello my friends,

How are you doing? I’m doing OK! Busy with certain things and lazy with others. Getting work and chores done, and letting ‘me time’ for the gap in between. In main while getting lost away from myself.

“Spring is the time of plans and projects.” 

Leo Tolstoy

I’ve realized that there are few spring days left, I should be more productive and catch up with my projects:

Beauty in my garden

Photography: My main subject is my garden, it’s blooming with flowers and birds.

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” 

Rainer Maria Rilke

Writing the stories of my thoughts

Journaling: I’m writing and writing, but I’m changing my style. I used to write in the 1st person, using I/Me. I’m trying to write using She/You, like if I’m a character in a story. Not sure if it makes sense, but when I read about the others, I’m compassionate, I’m not judgmental, I try to understand the reason behind the acts. I need to have more compassion towards myself.

“Art has a voice – let it speak.” 

Rochelle Carr

Finding my way through abstract art

Art Journaling: Trying to put together colours and images that speak to me. I’m always attracted to abstract art, I think that our mind sees what needs to be seen. I want my pages showing freedom, no rules, only feelings.

Wishing you a great week, enjoy the last days of this season!

Pieces and bits! I felt all over the place this weekend. Many things to do and the time going by fast. I managed to squeeze a little bit of journaling and art journaling to my busy schedule. These little things helped me to stay focus and keep me grounded.

Creativity involves breaking out of expected patterns in order to look at things in a different way.

Edward de Bono

I joined an Instagram art party on Saturday evening, the prompts were about spring.

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.

Mary Lou Co

Hoping you had a creative weekend and have a great week ahead!

a random page # 6

It isn’t only about acceptance, but understanding, transforming and adapting.

This is the first page I worked on after few days without any mood for journaling. I posted here about my feelings these last days, lots of up and downs and insecurities.

Well, it is the weekend, hoping to have lots of me time for journaling.

Have a great weekend!

Noticing how much I like to rip pages of magazines, it’s calming! I made these 4 pages during the weekend using the prompts from @createwithmethursdays, an Instagram challenge on Thursdays. I had a busy Thursday and didn’t have time to join the challenge, so I saved the prompts (Green, Love, Hope, and Faith) for the weekend.

Have a great week! Hoping for some sunshine here!

a peek inside my tiny red Moleskine. the prompt for this spread is i lovewithout any doubt i love freedom: freedom to go and come back, freedom to wear what i fancy, freedom of speech and creativity. sadly many women don’t have a tiny bit of this freedom.

and you? what do you love?

“There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time.”
Coco Chanel

art pages

i joined an art party last evening on IG. it was lots of fun to get together with people around the world and create few pages. if you wish, you can check it using #septglueparty18. I used my tiny red moleskine for my pages.  i really enjoy tiny art!

first prompt: which color describes you? – the first color to come to my mind is yellow. my older son was close by and i asked him the question, he said yellow!!! wow, this made me happy 🙂

fourth prompt: a quote from jack kerouac “life must be rich and full of loving, it’s no good otherwise, no good at all, for anyone.” of course, if you know me, you know that self-love is on the top of my priority list.
