Be Your Own Anchor

mixed-media/canvas painting 

Being my own anchor means that I am working on doing things for me. 
It means keeping myself centered. 
I have to keep myself in mind whenever I do things. 
Say "no" and meaning it. 
It means taking care of myself and not putting my worth in the hands of others!

Being my own anchor means putting me first. 
I can not nor will not get lost in others, in work and let life pass me by. 
Enjoy simplicity... for the sake of self-grounding.

Earth Week!

We are all visitors to this time, this place. 
We are just passing through. 
Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love, and 
then we return home.**

** I did get a chance to post this simple, yet amazingly wonderful art project!!
Using coffee filters, newspapers, and scraps of construction paper our little preschooler's created "Mother Earth" and learned all about making use of other materials.

Month of April

"April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain. "
T.S. Eliot

I have always been intrigued and completely fascinated by the life of Frida Kahlo. 
The life Frida lead, her medical issues, along side ALL the pain she suffered with... 
truly showed in her works of art.
Using this template free-frida-kahlo doll, old painted paper, acrylic paints, and a few collage pieces.. I was delighted to create this paper doll in her honor.
