Diligently I was
On a quest for happiness
Had to make my own
The other evening I was creating a collage using some torn paper and I wanted to title the balloon in the picture with the word “Happiness”. I did not want to write or print the word but hoped to find it in a magazine that I could cut out and paste in. I looked in magazine after magazine to no avail. The best thing I could find was the word “Happy”—no Happiness.
I decided then that I would just have to find some letters to cut and paste in order to make the word myself.
That is when the realization came to me that in life we often search and search for Happiness and never find it, because we really need to create it ourselves
Searching for that happy medium
Where time and creativity meet
To reside on peaceful plain.
Interruptions not allowed.
Rabbit trails off limits.
A place where thoughts
I didn’t celebrate
I didn’t create
A Gingerbread House
Today was Gingerbread House Day. In times past I have made many Gingerbread Houses but not today.
I did enjoy having a Toasted Marshmallow Peppermint Mocha at Black Rock Coffee while I thought about them though 😊
Did you make one today or have you ever made one?
I really want to draw
I really want to create
But my life says “No”
You really must just wait
Creativity I abate

Sometimes it leads
You on an amazing journey
Hidden talents within yourself!
You will enjoy finding
New things to do,
Lately I have been trying to learn how to draw. I have always wanted to but never really took the time to see if I could. So, last month I decided I would.
I bought a Sketch Book and some drawing pencils, found a daily drawing prompt site on Instagram and began my journey!
It has been a delightful, rewarding time each day. I am learning so much, finding hidden talent I didn’t know I had and meeting new friends.
I usually search for “How to Draw” sites or on You Tube that have drawing tutorials.
Today was especially exciting as the Prompt was to draw “Numbers”.
I decided to create something from the Numbers 25 as today is the 25th.
The drawing you see posted above is what resulted! It just amazed me to see where creativity led me today! From the numbers 25 to a Snoopy Top Dog drawing! 😊 I just had to share my excitement!
