PL calendar day 27       Success doesn’t just happen

It is not just by coincidence that things go well,  The results are based on the hard work you have put I up until that moment.  Remember to be thankful and use your current success to reach the net level.

The magnolias are not happy with the rain and cooler temperatures, but they did give us a few days of breathtaking perfection.  Such is life – be in the moment, tomorrow is another day.

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.

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.

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…

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.
