We begin our journeys with such innocence
so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness
we find ourselves discovering something new every day.
Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..
These dolls I found the other day
Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one
Where have they been, what stories could they tell.
These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting
hopefully I will learn more there.
For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to acquire.
Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.
Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.
PL Calendar day 15
Being Attentive Makes Life More Enjoyable
Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small. By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.
When we begin, there is only one line, by the time we have done, we are looking at what these days is called a Zentangle.
I take my time, and use no end in mind, nor do I try to contemplate design, or a theme. It is relaxation for me, so I simply allow myself to doodle.
Last night I began to colour in the various spaces. Leaning towards greens, I don’t try for perfection, and I don’t really try to stay within the lines. I will be interested in seeing IF I finish this “expression”, or will I let it lie on my desk, forgotten, waiting for me to “catch” the “mood” again. If and when it is finished, will it look anything like it started out. That is the beauty of these doodles. They allow, the mind to wander, and the hands to stray.
Mid week already. Hope you have all had a good start to the week, and that today, will be a “stunner” I challenged myself to do something creative every day. Sunday I tried my hand at Origami
Hey, they aren’t perfect, but trying to learn something new and doing something creative every day, for me is relaxing, and by jim-minie I can do with the R & R
Blessings everyone! Let your light shine through in all you do!

In the past I have used sludge from DeSerres (Tri Art) I spilled my last jar and have yet to replace it, so the above was done using alternate products found in my inventory.
To achieve a result, often requires more than one product, and when one ingredient is not available, if we are determined to get the result we are hoping for, we explore what is available, or easy access, and we experiment. It doesn’t matter if we succeed exactly as we had wanted what matters is that we do our best .. and try.
*** and *** that you are happy and cheerful while you are creating. Happiness is a state of mind. It is the journey that counts. When we are not open to every possibility around us at any given time, it could be a missed opportunity.
Seize the day, make it yours. Have a great start to a brand new week. Each day is a new canvas…Play, Explore, Live, take the initiative, be the first to smile and say hello.
Miss Piggy waves hello.. a cheerful pot of tea, she is dropping in to wish you well, We have a bright sunny day here, milder temperatures too. I think I heard thunder rolling across the winter night sky in the early morning hours. Warmer air, passing over and pushing down on the colder air below.
Works for me. What ever you are doing, where ever you are going.. May the rays of positive energy bless your day today !!
You are loved, today and everyday!
and no, Miss Piggy did not follow me home.
Feel the positive and energizing energy coming from this photo, the composition, the colours, the presentation. I can inhale and imagine the fragrance of the fresh flowers.
Be positive today. # 26 Maintain a Positive Attitude and wisdom will come to you.
