Mz Onion

In May, Mz Onion went to work as a

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.

Example isn’t another way to teach it is the only way to teach – Albert Einstein

face, 5.4.19

What happens when you have time on your hands nd you want to recycle an onion bag. I go into my workshop and play, Meet Ms Onion, she is now waiting for her transformation, when I have time to  spend time with her in the “makeup”  room.

Good morning everyone!  How lovely to see so many smiling faces yesterday at service. Our  new Hokyoshi from Brazil, Yoshizumi Terada was our master of ceremonies, when it came time to sing, we all got to enjoy Com Quem Contar with dance movements. It was a DELIGHT.  Thank you Yoshi.  Another Brazilian member Kaiser Lette Bueno added his voice to the song.  “Andei, Andei E encontrei  Oshieoya Sama, Oshieoya Sama.

Com Quem Contar has to be the most joyful song, I love it.  In English the title is Who to Trust.

Perfect Liberty, day 6   Past, Present or Future, Always remember to be sincere and honest

At any time, the place where you are standing t that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself.  At each moment in time, there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation to your position or status

Take note – Saturday May 11, service at 10 a.m. Ancestors Day

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…

Thursday doors 4.25.19

Thursday doors, how much I have missed being able to participate in this series.  My hankering for a door brought me to my desk to look through my photos

33beb69c-9e76-468f-a0f0-7d49bf8710eb

An open doorway to another time and place?  A place tended and serene.

c49ecb02f4c1373c61fb3483ec9130d9

A romantic hide-a-way where one can laze the day away.  In this one, fall is in the air, and the weather holds that rustic charm of warm colours and textured wood grains.

To so many of us, who chase the many varied and interesting doors, and doorways.  They are passages to hidden or unknown “adventure”  There is always a story to be found when one enters through a new door.

Garden gates are another temptation. How many of us have had wonderful conversation in a nursery or greenspace over the admiration of floral and fauna.

We need only look around at all the different ways we use and display doorways, archways, gateways.  They are the subject of stories, and many are the central focus in a photo-story.  To the door chaser, they are a work of art,  not in themselves, but their presentation.

 

I know that spring is outside t.he door, but my mood this morning appears to be mellow. I am drawn to fall colours, and the charm I’ve found in my library of photos that I have collected.

door 3c9c74ecb7d21240bc3d2f9c10757abf.jpg -Talas,TurkeyTwo doorways, two very different responses.

When we wake up in the morning, we get to decide which will be the doorway we will use to begin the day.

The choice is ours.

PL calendar, day 25

Pay Careful attention without overly straining yourself or taking things too lightly.

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that  will help you to better express yourself.

When the mind is busy – not really doing a lot, wheels are spinning the pen and hand doodle.  shapes, faces, eyes, brows, profile,chin, eye lashes – doodling a me pastime.

PL calendar day 21

Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now.

Now is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become NOW.  Be thankful for everything.
