Maybe choosing to

Step out of your comfort zone

Will bring happiness

My grand-daughter is a very talented artist in acrylic painting and charcoal drawing, especially in doing portraits.

Yesterday when we got together to do our crafting project she surprised me by saying” I want to try something different”

And so she did! She stepped out of her comfort zone and created something “Wonderful” in mixed media paper collage. 😊

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Dont give up and run for cover

When clouds of adversity hover

Stand firm and you’ll discover

There’s strength in standing still

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Dealing With Downers

Disappointment quote with pic of a puppy dog
Image from OctPoWriMo

Don’t entertain those

Dogged disappointment days

Dismiss and disown

Them from depressing your life

Discuss your problems

Resolve to dissolve

Seek the positive

Discover ways to overcome

Don’t let despondency win

Choka

There’s always failure. And there’s always disappointment. And there’s always loss. But the secret is learning from the loss, and realizing that none of those holes are vacuums.” —Michael J. Fox

Take a Chance

Snoopy Top Dog

Follow

Creativity.

Sometimes it leads

You on an amazing journey

To find

Hidden talents within yourself!

You will enjoy finding

New things to do,

And create!

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!
