A Peek Into My Sketchbook

 Painting--something I love to do. I wanted to share with you a peek at my sketchbooks. In the summer I took a painting and collage class and really enjoyed it. Here are a few of the pages I've worked on in my sketchbook. :)

Where My Inspiration Begins....

The past few weeks I've been busy with taking an online art workshop. Through this I have learned to enjoy myself and not compare myself to others. This is all new to me. I'm having so much fun. I've learned that being myself  and making something that I'm proud of means more to me than trying to copy someone elses style. Our first assignment for week one was to create a workspace and inspiration board.

In the corner of my room you can find the place where I just love to be. A place where I get inspired and spend time creating. On my desk I have washi tape, a candle, pens, pencils, paint and paint brushes. Everything I need is readily available. Even if I have just a few minutes, I can enjoy a little time for myself. :)

This is my inspiration wall. Postcards, quotes, pictures and notes. Some of my favorite things that inspire me. :)

Wishing you all a day to enjoy some of your favorite things. :)

A Day At The Zoo

A few weekends ago my family spent the day at the zoo in our area. We hadn't been in several years and had a great time. While there I took many pictures and enjoy reflecting on the fun we had that day. I wanted to share a little bit of our experience with you. I hope you enjoy the view through my lens.
