working and living

2006a

Working and living =^_^=   go together – living in the NOW means you are interacting and being present all day, whether it is work or play, you are involved.  by putting your best into all you do, the experience is uniquely yours.  What ever you do today, enjoy it. Yes, really… do your best.

PL calendar day 4 – Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others.

Junho 4, Pense em felicitar a si e aos outros, sendo honesto consigo.

research

Object,    considering a class at Scrapbook Centrale, pick up deck of cards.  Live in Ottawa, drive to Montreal for deck of cards. ????

Look again, see the deck of cards.  No I don’t either.  I went next door to a Dollar store to find a deck, and it took walking up and down the aisles several times. I kid you not.

The workshop that I had considered taking, was one that involved 52 cards (standard playing cards)  Having purchased the playing cards, and begun the first step of putting black gesso on a few…..I am now, no longer considering that class.  Yup.. I have been drawn to brighter more electric colours and find myself reviewing options.

Research is good.  So is change, timing is everything.

PL Day 26   Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.

Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things.  Be fully responsible completing whatever you set out to do.

It is a bit of a drive to Montreal, but the inspiration I get there, the ability to see and enjoy the creativity of others AND the vast array of products allows me plenty of fodder to research.

Thursday doors

The fascination of a door.  I loved that the lace curtain still hung on the door.

This doorway was further away, however, I couldn’t resist a capture so I could revisit later..  Had someone built a fort for the children to enjoy, or… was it an old structure, repurposed.  The character of places found when exploring other landscapes far from the city. Absolute heaven.

Eartha my travelling companion, shares in the delights of taking that secondary road, the quest for adventure, the joy of a discovery.  We did have a final destination and arrived soon enough.  But, not before we found another gem.

The past is part of our present.

PL calendar day 16

Avoid being careless or overconfident.

Even though you have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Why would someone put an old tire there?

PL calendar day 10

When you are not having fun, could it be because you re being lazy?  Sometimes you feel blue or can’t seem to find  the joy in doing anything.  At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.

If sadness and lack of hope knock I your heart – try to do something positive for someone else.

MCG demo 2

demo 2 mcg 5.2.19

Happy May 5th. Bom dia!

Another mixed media done for demo.  The idea with a demo of new and old products is to show artists, budding new crafters and seasoned expressionist  how to use some of the newer products that are arriving on the market daily.  Yes you an see YouTube videos but a video isn’t something you can touch, feel and  at the same time, have knoledegable staff who can and will help if you have questions.

I know that there are many who prefer to deal online for supplies, and if you know the product, and the supplier, have a particular way of working, and are not going to deviate from what you know.. then go for it.

My experience is that when I am in a creative mood, or am working on an idea, I want and need my inventory handy.  Part of the creative process in mixed media is to be open to new possibilities.  The demo -before- during prep.. sometimes, what is down could be up =^_^=   Abstract work, is lived in the moment.

demo mcg 2,5219The beauty of abstract mixed media… given the same products, no two pieces will come out the same.  How perfect is that.  We are all unique …  talented and beautiful.

PL calendar day 5    Start by thinking “this is interesting”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it. From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come of it.

My bargain tulips are blooming…

I took a chance, and brought them home and gave them some love. Love is a powerful gift.  Share your gift with the world. PEACE  begins within.

A reminder, if you are in the Ottawa area and want to see some amazing dogs, and mingle with a dog crowd.  Visit the market today for the special event, to showcase, our dog population.    games, fun, prizes, special, canine treats.

PL Calendar day 28   Don’t Blame Others

It is easy to place the blame on others and society for the problems you encounter in life.  But you are the one with the power to change the outcome.

Seize the day!

trial and error

icing paste3

Good Morning, Bom dia!

The day is young and really not decided on what it is going to do.  The forecast says rain and lots of it.  In our area, there has been a lot of flooding already, this newest bit of rain could be a real disaster for many at risk communities.  My prayers go out to all of you at this time.

Across the river on the Quebec side, the military has been brought in to help with the filling of sandbags and volunteers from all around are coming around donating their time.  It is in such times that we see how community pulls together despite any differences at other times.  Oyashikiri.

What you see above is my trying out a new product, seeing what it can do with a variety of molds or embossing/texture plates.  The product used (coloured) is by Finnabair, called Icing paste (Prima marketing),  It is through trial and error that I will find how it will work with my particular style of “working”.  The challenge and opportunity of discovery.  I love it.

PL calendar day 26       Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.

Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things.  Be fully responsible, completing whatever you set out to do.
