Hello my dear friends and Happy Holidays to all of you.
With Christmas just a little more than a day away I wanted to just pop in and share sometime with all of you. I have been really just taking time to be in the present and have hardly been on social media or on my blog for the past few weeks. I have to say that it has been really nice.
I’ve had a chance to really spend some quality time with my husband which you all know I truly adore and we both have been taking it a bit easy.
Our morning routine after getting the pugs and frenchie all fed consists of sitting on our sun porch which is all decked out for the holidays with 2 small trees and a couple special holiday sets – one is a skating rink where the people move around on the “ice” and the little village lights up, the other is a little village scene with a Christmas tree and Santa and his reindeer that move and light up. We sit sip our coffee, chat and just enjoy each others company. We talk about past Christmases and holidays from our childhood. We have been chatting about the new year and things we hope to do and trips we hope to take. This time has been so heartfelt and enjoyable and if you are allotted the chance to take some time to just enjoy life and your loved ones I highly recommend it.
That’s not to say that I haven’t missed all of you and my art, I truly have, but I have needed this time to just be.
I have so many things that I want to do and share with all of you in this up coming year. I need this time to really hone in on my plans and figure out a real course of action.
I want to give a shout out and HUGE CONGRATS to the winner of the free spot in the BadAss Art Journal Workshop – Janis Graham! I want to thank everyone that took the time to stop by and leave a comment and enter the giveaway!
This is truly going to be a wonderful workshop – with so many talented artists if you are looking for that one workshop that you can keep going back to this would be it. You can check out all the details as well as sign up here .
What I have been crushing on lately: I have always LOVED mood boards, just something about them cause you to feel a certain way. Each person may feel differently when they see a particular board but the fact that they are created to “invoke a mood” or feeling is just what I love about them. I have created one here that I wanted too share with all of you as a Holiday Themed mood board. I have a plan for the New Year using these little bit of inspiration to share something special with all of you. I hope that this mood board creates a feeling of love, warmth and holiday magic in all of you!
I would Love for all of you to leave a comment letting me know what your first thoughts were upon seeing this mood board.
