Self care and fall leaves

The Northern calendar has turned to fall, colors are changing, it's cool enough for a cost today! Though I haven't painted energy day, I've enjoyed adding several layers, and
Blooming and Codes
some crackle paste to my canvas! I've had it awhile, but hadn't used it yet - needed to add a thicker layer to get crackles! 


Have you tried something new recently?

Whether it's fall for thou or spring, October is a good time to attend to self care. 

  • Ask yourself, are there a few things you'd like to add to, or subtract from your daily routine
  • Are there some friends you would like to spend more time with, or some you need to ease away from? 
  • What creative practices bring you joy, or soothe your soul? 


Often playing with image and color well will you answers, so pull out a sketchbook and coloring materials, and feel into these questions! Trust your intuition to give you answers.

Happy Paint Party Friday! And #30daysofselfcarechallenge

You made me think of my "creative excursions" to fabric stores! I used to love seeing and feeling all the different types of fabric and it's been quite a while since I did that. Thank you for your post - wonderful!

I enjoy a cocktail at night while playing with the pups!

The way the colors flow is lovely! I tried a new type of paint, it wasn't quite what I was looking for, but I'm glad I tried it...

Thank you!
Fabric or craft or art store excursions are the best, aren't they, Lori?
Mmmm ❤
Yes, Lisa, the crackle paste was a total experiment, and my first layer was too light for much of an effect! My second try was thicker, and o mixed in some paint, so that worked better!

Hi Nadya ! Have to say I didn't quite know that Dia is your other name! For self care today I mindfully relaxed and flowed thru most of the day. It was a nice change.
