happiness is

For me, mixed media 4.18.17

PL calendar day 4.

Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others

Always be true to yourself in your words and actions.  Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart.

I came across the above photo this morning.  I enjoyed revisiting it, so I am sharing it with you. Some expressions of mine.. I enjoy at the time, they are calming and relaxing when I am working with them…  then… fickle as I am..  I move on.  Each step leads to another.  So maybe not fickle, maybe it is more, I let go and go forward.  I just finished several small requests for greeting cards, I enjoy doing them,  I sit myself down, focus on project cards.  When that is done, I put the card making supplies away and return to my art journals.

Sage sentiment.  Follow your heart while thinking of the happiness of others.

I know it is impossible to be happy and full of glee 24/7, but I  do so enjoy thinking of you all living in happy states of mind..  Productivity, creativity and accomplishments filling your days with rewarding moments of pure satisfaction.  Positive and loving energy to all.   Share a smile today!

Day 9 PL Calendar

It is interesting because it is different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in a mindset.  “This is the way, it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.

fly into the sunshine

glide on the smallest of breeze

know the ease of flight

through air and matter,

when you believe

with all your might

that the Universe and you are ONE

in the blink of an eye

time is redefined

Katana

Katana DC collectible 3.7.19

Historically , a Katana was traditionally known as a Japanese sword, used by the samurai of ancient and feudal Japan.  However, my Katana is a DC Bombshell collectible.  Her real name is Tatsu Yamashiro and her superpowers  – martial arts intuition  artistic intuition, and enhanced swordmanship.  You can of course read more about her on the net.  In the comics she is sometimes a teenager… But mine is grown up, ageless =^_^=

butterflies and flyWhy Katan, DC and Marvel have dozens and dozens of characters and possibilities.  It was actually my niece who gave me the idea.  She herself had recently picked up a Superwoman.  That brought back memories for me when I was growing up, Linda Carter was the blue eyes beauty who played her in the series that was on the telly.

I related to her super powers and her dedication to good, and the service of her abilities in helping others.

This is from the Wikipedia   Katana is a fictional superheroine that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. First appearing in 1983, Katana is a samurai warrior whose skill with a sword allows her to fight for justice as a superhero. Her tragic backstory includes the death of her husband, Maseo, whose soul becomes trapped in her blade, the Soultaker. Katana has been featured in various DC Comics superhero teams, including the Justice League and the Birds of Prey, but is most commonly associated with the team known as the Outsiders, a team of heroes hand-picked by Batman to act as his personal black ops team, handling riskier missions.

PL Calendar day 7   Your enthusiasm will pave the way

Your enthusiasm will fuel your efforts and creativity and will spread to those around you driving new developments.

Have fun today, who will your alter ego be =^_^=  ?

Thanks to my niece who inspired me to get out yesterday and have a grand old time rediscovering a part of me.

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.

lego hero

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

 

xmas-9-27-e1538136509378.jpg

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.
