Not so for everyone:(
Spring will come..it always does..it's a one true thing.
I baked cookies for all 4 boys and must admit these are addictive..they are from here..and her recipes.."rock" lol.
Anyways..baked the cookies..organized cupboards in the kitchen..
Noah had a ped day the day after his return from Disney and came to spend it w/ us..we hula hooped..(kids LOVE it) I do too..if you get one get the Wave one..the others are too light I find.This one seems to have water in it..it may take you a few tries..but you WILL get it:)
You cannot ..not laugh watching the kids ..and they laugh too..and once they get it..be prepared to count to..500 then 800 then at 1500 I said ok..you can go to 1500 each ok?(I am the counter)..
He painted in my craft room..had lunch..he will eat anything and be appreciative..and watched Back To The Future..
It was too cold to go out for Jacques and I so it was an indoor day.
We also..moved the printer from a desk in my craft room..so that I can have another area to paint on since the card table has chains and hanging lights under for the debut of my seeds.
Painted.. read..the last nesting days I guess..April should take care of winter~
No one paints Macarons and Paris Patisseries etc..like Carol..
seeing her art is inspiring ..so much so that you want to try..far cry..but fun to try..
one day I Googled macarons..and it helped to paint some..from real life..since I have made them..I can feel the shape..and seeing real photographs of different ones on Google Images..it helps..
I am better (I use this term loosely)..at painting something I see FLAT..3D is ..I don't know ..but it seems impossible to me..must get back to Drawing w/ the right side of the brain and that frame thing..:)
So here are my takes..the one top right is a blank watercolor postcard I bought at Sennnelier while with my friend..so I painted it for her to snail mail her..added some favorite stamps..
the bottom left was my first try..and the bottom right.. 3rd try ..incorporating some things learned from my Creative Girl book by Danielle Donaldson:)
I still LOVE that book.
I recently received..a Joyce Hick's book..it's out of my comfort zone..but I did the first exercise yesterday..it's fun to learn..it's not easy at all.
I loved this from Mary Oliver's book:)
"The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work who felt their own creative power restive and uprising,and gave to it neither power nor time."
I am not convinced they are the most regretful..but..
I think it feels good reading this no matter how awkward we can be in what we attempt..it's like being a child..and playing..and we stop all that way too soon.
My apologies to my friends on IG..you are seeing two of these pics for the second time.
Have a nice weekend~
My favorite show...watched the finale last night..if you haven't watched it..try to get it..this wasthe first season.
