Giving Thanks and Celebrating Life!

Yup, it's my Birthday!!

I Thank you Lord for another year of life!
Grateful for the blessings He has given me and for never forsaking me!

So on this very special day that the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it!

I started my birthday celebration last night by giving myself  time to create.  I worked on a page I started about a year ago in one of my art journals.   This page started off with just some painters tape and gesso to strengthen the pages, and a sketch of a girl with balloons.  Then after adding some washi tape, some fun colors, several stamps, and pasted some hearts, this is what evolved.  
I think she is pretty cute and she's is ready to celebrate with me!  



Thanks for stopping by! 

Heavenly Blessings, 
The Birthday Girl!

Focus, Prioritize, DO!

2015 Word is FOCUS! 

Hello my lovely people!! 2015 is moving along... January has come and gone.  I can't believe we are already in February!  
Towards the end of 2014 as I meditated on the my Word of the Year, it was hard because my mind was so cluttered, full of ideas and desires and wants.  I started to already feel discouraged and weighed down, overwhelmed with everything in my head.  So I decided that my word needed to be to FOCUS, to prioritize and also stop thinking to much and just DO!.  
I've been trying my best to stick to my word, so I set goals for the year but also monthly benchmarks to keep myself on task.  I will evaluate and prioritize at the end of every month.  

I have commited to create at least one thing everyday, even if its just a sketch of a chair or a doodle on a napkin as long as I keep my hands moving and the creative juices flowing.  Can't keep all that is going on in my head bottled up... I might explode!! 

I created a page in my Dylusions Art Journal (yes I finally got one) and created the double page for my word... or words.  I'm not sure if I'm 100% finished with the page, but I do like how it's coming out.  





Hope you join me in my journey to stay Focused in 2015!  

Thank you for stopping by
