A Busy Week

It's been a little crazy here since I finished my first 21 Days Project. We are potty training my son. This has been a "Many Months of Trying to Potty Train Project", but he is finally getting the hang of it. Unfortunately, milestones like this can disrupt sleep. He has never been a great sleeper so this "milestone" has made things worse in the sleep department. It will all straighten itself out eventually.

I have been pondering my next project and I know I want to focus on making art. I loved doing the Gratitude Photos. I feel I really captured some special moments that would've just passed by had I not been focused on being present. Towards the end though, I wasn't feeling that excited about the photos. It was wonderful for me and my family but, not focused on developing my artistic voice. I love painting and collage and I really want to make time for that. I've started two new e-courses and they are really fun. The She Art Workshop from Christy Tomlinson and Sketchbook Delight from Alisa Burke. Both courses are self-paced. Christy has a wonderful, fun method for creating collages and Alisa takes all the fear out of keeping a sketchbook and shows you simple methods for creating pages that actually look finished. Both courses have lots of videos too, which I love. I even completed my first She Art Girl as you can see.

I am so proud of this piece. It is the first artwork I have completed since I got pregnant with my son over four years ago! I want to create so much and these two courses are giving me the tools and inspiration to do so.

In a few days I'll announce what my next 21 Days Project will be. I hope you'll take the time to check out these courses or any other e-course that may interest you. They are so much fun!

  1. Love your artwork! And so happy for you that you are able to create again!!

  2. Happy to hear you are creating again. As an artist I know how good it feels to be back in that place! I will keep checking in to see new work.

    Potty training, ugh, next step for me with my little one. I feel for you.

  3. Good for you! It's lovely. I'm thinking of doing a painting a day for 21 days. Makes me very nervous. Don't know how I will be able to do it, but that is kind of the point. Right?!
