Winter Vlog ❄️

Hello my friends! Hope you are all well. I've been busy and I am trying to keep things together and organized but sometimes life has its own plans. Sometimes there is chaos and it is okay. It's okay to have a mess, it's okay to not be organized and it's okay if things don't go as planned. Life is unpredictable and messy. Take it easy and take it one day at a time. Be kind to your self. You are important and valuable. Each day is a gift. You are a gift.Thank you for being here and watching my videos. I appreciate you so much. I have more vlogs coming! :) Much love to you all. ❤️

see you soon with my  #The100DayProject

I am participating in #the100dayproject 🎨


Happy Wednesday! Hope you are all well. I wanted to share with you that I am participating in #the100dayproject! I am really excited and look forward to sharing my art exploration and work with you. I didn't get to finish the project last year due to my health but I am going to try this year and see how it goes. Hope you follow along. I will be posting on all my social media platforms. @bestdayblogger 
I will also post on this blog daily. 

Here is a Gouache piece of PEI and I tried to capture the red beautiful soil and the movement in the sky and water. Gouache is fun to work with and I really love how I can layer paints with it. I wonder if I add gloss on top of gouache will it give it a glossy finish? I must try that tomorrow. 

So much fun to explore and create! Thank you for being here and reading my blog. I appreciate it so much!

In this piece I was testing out colours, shapes and textures. 

Thank you all so much and I will see you tomorrow!

Much Love,

Dear January...


Dear January,
wow what a busy month!
you are unpredictable
We had visits to the hospital
kiddos got sick
Mom life got real! Not surprised and nor do I fight it,
I just go with it and say "hit me with your best shot!" "BRING IT!"
What can I do? I do not resist, just go with the flow. 
No tears, just keep swimming. 🐠 

 So glad to have done so many creative things in January 
Lots of art, walks in the forest, 
Reading and a lot of skincare!
I watched a lot of favourite films and movies. 
I watched a lot of Youtube and stayed motivated and positive. 

Not much in the kitchen. Not motivated to be in the kitchen too much lately.
Hopefully this will change. It feels like a weekend today because I am so tired but it's only Wednesday. 
Creative works:

Prints made with my Gelli plate
I also used a lovely vintage bird from the website The Graphics Fairy.

another print with the gelli plate

Reading this book...

Creating Diptych Photographs

Bloodwork and mammogram tests at the hospital

Taking photos in the forest
