book cover 11.4.18

Bonjour, Bom dia, greetings, Sunday 4th. November

Words are wonderful, words can do so much, however, as I wrote about my adventure to and from Montreal the other day, my thoughts were in colours.  Try as I might, I wanted somehow to express the emotions of colours in a more tangible way. I have a canvas on the go too, but am not ready to show you yet.  I am on stage 3 or 4 with this book cover. This will be my November December art journal, or Junk journal, whatever, which ever it is a book I will use to play “art” in.

That means that I will play with it, use it, daily or when the time is there for me, to interact with it.. and allow it to become. =^_^=

When we love what we do, or are doing, it may have its “opportunities” but we will creatively enjoy each step of the way, learning all the way.

PL calendar day 4   Enthusiasm will make things interesting

When you put your whole heart into what you are doing, you will begin to notice many important details and your creativity will blossom.

Bom dia, good morning

Lego, Lego, it has been around for years. I never played with it in years gone by, and had no intentions of playing with Lego now. One should never say never. Lately I have been introduced to the many “wonders” of the  Lego world of activities, I thought for the younger generation, however, I have since learned that Lego is played with by the young and old, and that collectors are hugely abundant.

In my travels I came across this set. #75951 Fantastic Beasts. I thought to give it a try. It was not in the cards. My fingers lacked the coordination and my aging gray matter rebelled unkindly to my intentions.  A friends grandson, I was told was a super whiz at building Lego, and that my little 100 some blocks would be sneeze.   His accomplishments are in sets that have thousands of pieces.  I shudder at the thought, what patience he must have.  I surrendered my little horse and carriage.

And look dear friends, I have it back and it is a beauty. I am thrilled. The young man is now my  Lego hero my knight in shining armor.  I will never think of Lego in the same way again.  btw notice that the heroes are younger now.. or is it I am getting older.

cards

Bom Dia on this lovely crisp Fall day.  For the last couple of days I have pulled together Xmas holiday stash, and begun my card making for the November deadline, or maybe it is end of October.  Must check that.  I decided on a theme this year,since the cards are going to elderly persons that will stuck in home, hospitals and such over the holidays, I decided on a theme of “days gone by”  I asked myself if I was going to be a recipient what would I enjoy.

There are many talented card makers who have been doing this for year, so there will be wide variety for the organizers to pick from.  Have any of you given serious thought to what. you will be doing in December. I have not, thinking that far ahead was something I didn’t do.  It has always been a time of year that I have not felt in sync with.

Yes I enjoy the colour and the gaiety that seems to arrive with the holiday season in December…. but the spiritual side of it all, I have found lacking.  But that my dears is not something we will go into now. (huge sigh of relief heard throughout the land)

btw the cards are not finished yet, they are mid way.  I see I’m running late, I will wish you all the best  of what today will bring your way.  I am looking forward to reading more of the autumn months from you, and the wonderful scenes you will post.

A hugs hug  filled with warmth and blessings is being sent your way,

clear day

Bom dia, Sabado…Saturday after a big storm.  I woke to skies of blue, and clear as far as the eye can see.  NO, not to Brazil, but wanted to share with you a birthday card I did for a friend. My interpretation of a birthday card, comes in many dimensions and depending on where it is headed, can be almost anything.

I learned at an early age, not to limit my imagination and creativity. Admittedly sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.  I do my best.  Key words, do my best. In all we do, it is important that we do our best. Be in the moment, as long as we do our best, we will have no regrets.  It applies to all we do and say.

We all encounter storms during our stay in this world, some emotional, some physical, whatever happens, we live through it and move on.  Sometimes it is easy and sometimes it is not.  Whatever, and wherever you are today, you are here, you are living another day.  Do it well.

Chop Suey Tuesday 18th

oct journal pageHappy September 18th everyone.

First I want to thank you all or your birthday wishes.  I was away for a birthday outing yesterday, when I came back I was overwhelmed by all the messages and good wishes.  Wow, it is going to be super awesome year, I have been jet propelled into a new year.  I am truly blessed, I say thank you each and every day!

oct rust 1 page

While some look for pristine, blank pages, I work at making mine look old, and sometimes, like here, I strive to make rust, and dirty a page, this is my playtime. Yesterday was spent visiting places in west of downtown Montreal, looking for paint, inks, and any and all other artistic, creative tools, to be found,  It was an all day event that I got to share with two like-minded friends, needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

Every person is unique, we each and every one of us, expresses ourselves in our own way.  What rocks one person, can be a total turn off to the other, yet when we are on a search and find mission, the enthusiasm of the other person’s excitement when they have found something that has fired up their enthusiasm for their craft, that is catching.  It is smiles all around.

In our travels as we headed back towards Ottawa, I found Catnip who I knew would be perfect for my October Fright journal.

Sharing happiness with friends is a blessing.  What better way to share a birthday celebration, Catnip will always remind me that my 2018 birthday was not only  great.  It lasted for days,  Today I am off on another adventure.

PL Calendar for 18th.  Look forward to what’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

PL 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.

Had I been paying careful attention at the time I put this picture in my family folder, I would have noted who sent it to me, and where they were at the time  =<>=

That said, isn’t this just the most magnificent of artistry.

Be at peace with the world today.
