11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 3 new entries from my gratitude/art journal on: January 13, 2015 12:00:21 PM
So as I've mentioned in another post, my family and I have a nightly ritual of gratitude/art journaling. I feel like it is really helping us all. Especially my 15 year old son who has also gotten into meditating with me. I am watching him transform before my eyes!! He is embracing it with arms wide open and our relationship is better than it has ever been. We discuss meditations and energy, and gratitude...it's amazing!

At any rate, here are my three entries as of late....







12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Gratitude project - art journal entry for today! on: January 07, 2015 11:20:22 AM
I've recently started a new spiritual path. Working in healing and making myself an all around better person. This includes meditation, affirmations, and being in a constant state
Of gratitude. I've also started waking my 15 year old ds 20 mins early every day and preparing guided meditation sessions for him and it is working wonders. He is starting to see a difference in his world already.

So a big thing for me is a gratitude journal. In the opposing page there will be a space for me to write all of today's blessings. You can't be miserable when you focus on all the good in your life! This gratitude project involves my whole family...right down to my 7 yo dd. Every night, I will set up our gratitude journal station where we will all work on our journals. Creativity AND thankfulness. Sounds good to me!

So here is today's entry. I heard the affirmation on the law of attraction radio podcast (can't remember which one - and a beautiful window box has always given me such warm feelings. I'm happy with how it turned out!
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Elf quote Christmas sweater - Bye Buddy hope you find your dad on: December 18, 2014 06:02:26 AM
My son has ugly sweater day at school today. It was a bit of a scramble with making cake pops and doll clothes all day, but I managed to pull something together. I wanted to make more snowflakes (but my hands got tired cutting through all the layers) and I wanted to make more paper (read vinyl) garland, but I got bored lol.

At any rate...he likes it. We love Buddy the Elf in this house lol

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / 30 foot Toronto Maple Leaf mural VERY PIC HEAVY!! on: December 13, 2014 11:07:46 AM
I recently had someone ask me to do a Toronto Maple Leaf mural for her rec room as a Christmas present for her kids...and it was 30 feet long. Yikes! I said, "Of course!" but inside I was pretty nervous lol. However, I do love a good challenge!

So...put together what I wanted to do in photoshop so that I could plan it all out and I went from there. I decided to start on the right hand side of the biggest wall...because...well...why not? I am not a hockey fan, so what I didn't realize was that the first guy I painted was a dud of a hockey player lol. I painted over him and he became Mats Sundin. I then moved on to Doug Gilmour, then Joffrey Lupul, then Phil Kessel, and last but not least, Wendel Clark...and then I proceeded to add her kids into the crowd. SHe told me all of the ads she wanted on the boards, and then that she wanted a time clock and some Leafs paraphernalia on the end wall. I still have to paint the hockey lines on the floor and ads along the wall facing the time clock, but since I have been working on this for months, I'm excited to have something that is quasi finished. It has been a serious labour of love. At times very daunting. Definitely the biggest mural I've ever done Smiley I wish the pictures gave it justice but it's so big that it is hard to get it all in to one shot!

20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / More Inktense art - VIXEN! (and a few others!) on: October 08, 2014 02:28:48 PM
As you have likely noticed, I have a growing addiction to Inktense Pencils. They're very much like watercolour pencils, and yet they are called Ink Pencils. At any rate, they're AWESOME and I'm totally in love. They're totally renewing my art inspiration!!
