Inspired by….Me Time

Go ahead...take one!

I have been creative-less for more than a few days now. I  noticed this morning that I was getting a wee bit grumpy, a little impatient,and very antsy. This was accompanied by a nagging feeling that I was missing something…

I couldn’t pinpoint exactly why I was feeling this way and was basically too busy to give it much thought. But on further observation and questioning during my morning dog walk it hit me.

I have been creative-less.My overactive imagination has had no outlet!

Simply put –  life has been a wee bit hectic. Hectic..as in silly busy. Still filled with lots of joy, laughter, sunshine and coffee, but no me time. Time that I can just sit and do with no distractions or interruptions. My zen time. Be it 10 minutes, or hopefully more, it is just a little time out that I need to zen out.

Yes You Can!!

Once again a gentle reminder to slow down and put a little balance into  life. A balance between work,play,family life …and me!.A chance to end each day with a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. A chance to make sure the scales are balanced.

Have you had your time today?

Inspired by my …artistic affliction

My husband is away. The kids are at school. I have become the mad woman….

We are no longer eating at the dining table as I have one, maybe two paintings in progress.

my studio..

Now, really, who could get anything done in here? Much to messy and way too many distractions!
