Art Journal

I have just stumbled across a wonderful site called Wild Precious . I have spent many hours looking over this great site and have come tot he conclusion that I want to try my hand at Art Journalling.  I have avoided journalling all my life because I didn't think that i had anything worth writing down. I still don't think I have much to say that is worthy of putting in a journal but Art Journalling is not about prolific writing, instead it is about feelings, art, creativity and having fun.  So, I searched my bookshelf looking for a suitable book that I could use, all the while feeling guilty because I was about to deface a book.  Then I thought about it for a moment and realised that if there wa a book sitting on my shlef that was fit to be transformed then it was never gong to be read.  So, I chose a gardening book with a hard cover that the silver fish had started to devour and that was the begining of my 'next creative passion'.

Art pieces

I created this piece  of art a few months ago after a wonderfully uplifting meditation session.  I used chalk pastels on this picture, I LOVE using pastels, the way they blend together is a magical process. I have called this picture Eyes of Buddha.
This second piece is a Zentangle I did this evening.  Zentangles have a way of making me feel relaxed, the active meditation felt through creating Zentangles can be a bit addictive.

Creative Meditation

Two days ago I listened to Goddess Leonie's week three meditation from her Creative Goddess e-course. I still feel relaxed and uplifted from sitting and working through the meditation. I haven't meditated for a couple of months but as soon as the meditation started I was taken into a beautiful visulization to meet my creative Guide. I do love to meditate, I must continue to make an effort to keep meditation as a big part of my life. I am half way through this e-course and can't wait to make my piece of art for this week.

Just popping in for a minute

I have just finished tiling my laundry. I have always wanted a light airy laundry room and now I have one complete with white walls and white tiles. I have waited 23 years to get the room I wanted and if anyone messes it up they have me to contend with.
This is what I have just finished making a Snow Queen Dotee for Martha in a Winter Dotee swap. She was so easy and quick to make and I have to say I am very pleased with the end result. I sure hope Martha likes her.

I found these photos f an Arum lilly on my camera when I was uploading the Dotee. I an so please with my lily, it is in the perfect spot and grows like a weed. It is amazing how different it looks using different settings on the camera.

New family member

I hope to post to this blog more ofter this year. I'm sure i said that last year and the year before but this year I really will try to make an effort.

We have a new baby in the family. Aidann summer Rose arrives on 7th January 2011 weighing in at 9lb 8 1/2 the biggest baby this family has seen for a couple of generations. The second child for my eldest son Sam and his beautiful partner Tab and a little sister for Corbin. We have had lots of photos and will be having lots of cuddles on 22nd January when Iain and I meet her for the first time. At times like this I realise jus how much I miss my Sons and thier families, being a long distance Grandmother isn't an easy task to perform. But I make up for it when we do visit.
