Whew! I Thought I Blew It!


Oh man. I don’t know why, but as I was driving home today (went to get my man some take out at PF Chang’s China Bistro) I suddenly thought that Art Every Day was in September and I’d forgotten to do it. I can’t tell you how sad and uptight it made me!

I could hardly wait to get home and get on the computer to check!

And, as luck would have it, it doesn’t start until November, which is when I THOUGHT it was initially – I don’t know why I freaked out and thought it was September.

So, I’ve got time to get some projects planned out.

The timing is really perfect because I’m going to give making some Christmas presents this year a whirl. Of course, if I blog about them, they won’t be a surprise, so maybe that’s not such a good idea after all. Wonder if my big girls would not read that days post if I gave a spoiler alert?

I hope I’m not using up all my creative energy now, and will be back in the creative wasteland by then.

I worked on my Happiness Art Journal again today – finished up the last layout, and started another. It feels really good to be on a roll. Not only have I been happily painting, but I’ve been also giving a lot of thought to the happy things in my life.

I know we all know how important attitude is,  yet it still surprises me when I’m thinking happy thoughts to realize how happy I FEEL. EVERY. TIME. It’s pretty amazing.

  2. Hello! Just peeking in as a fellow Blogtoberfest participant and I love your posts so far! I really love your happiness journal pages and they are inspiring me to try my hand at a more visual gratitude journal – at the moment I write my gratitude each night before sleep but its a great way to drift off to sleep =-) I’ll peek back during the month to see what other fun things you are posting here!
    Happy Blogtoberfest!

    • Thank you so much, Monica! I need to multi-task, so I figured my happiness project, my one little word (happy) efforts, and painting could be combined into one big project! And it’s working!
