#WOYWW 343 Inspire

I've been craving to have a little time for creativity
and I finally gave myself the time
early in the morning since I don't have to work this week
before my daughter woke up :)

With Christmas here my table was a complete mess
so I took about an hour to clean it up
but I got it done :)
it looks pretty clear to me
except for the things that my husband has under the table lol

and this is the page I worked on
pretty simple really
I used watercolors for the top
acrylics on the bottom
the word is a print from a wooden word with paint on it
the green part is a foam tray stamp 
that I made myself
and the white flower is a mask made with
spray paint

it felt really good to do art again.

Keep on inspiring :)

Collage Your Emotions

Today I felt like making a collage
I read a newsletter from Shelley Klammer
where she invites to preview the prompt from

and the Self-Reflection question is:
What pain do you need to release today? 
What can you do to let it go?

and my answer to that is

this is my collage

the pillows represent the meditation
soon somehow I'll have one of these 
to meditate on :)

I found this pretty reindeer
that shows the present moment
is around Christmas time

these lamps represent the light and ideas
I'll get while meditating

and this is just me saying Believe

We all need to Believe in something :)

Love and Peace

Practice Being a Kid Again :)

After a long day of Christmas shopping
I came home to eat and relax.
I grabbed my journal without knowing what to do
and I asked my daughter who was next to me
watching TV with daddy,
what should I draw?
and her answer was: a mistletoe.

Of course she had to say that,
she loves plants and Christmas is only a few days away;
isn't it funny how when you are a kid
all the things that you like come together so easily
without even knowing it? 

I guess we need to practice being a kid more often :)

So I went on to draw a mistletoe
and the rest just came to me little by little
I know is not much of an art journal page
but practice makes you better :)

Thanks for stopping by
and saying hi :)

Fun and Easy Christmas Craft for Kids and Toddlers

A little cutie to share here
This is what we made in our classroom (I'm a preschool teacher)
at the beginning of this week.

Pretty easy and self explanatory :)
the kids finger painted the poster board paper
then I added some big eyes that I found at the craft store
the red nose is just construction paper
and the antlers are all my kids hand prints on construction paper.

Fun and simple
and the kids did most of the work lol

#WOYWW 339

Oh my! Time flies specially now with the holidays here. 
I finally started to make something for my daughter

I am not going to tell you what it is until I finish it.
That way I can push myself to work on it
as much as I can and hopefully finish it 
before Christmas.

And this is how my workdesk looks like

While I listen to a podcast, interview or video
I am working on it :)

What do you think it is???

Take care,

I wish it snows in Florida :(
