When In Doubt CREATE

So there I was mixing up the right green. Emerald green seemed to surface. This emerald green was beautiful and I made it with blue and yellow ochre. Yellow ochre is a favorite.

Then came painitng time. Yet, I couldn’t sketch the right heart shaped leaves. I let go. Yes, I put the pencil down and simply painted. I’ve got paint, lots of paper and I’m creative so why not just paint?

What a confidence booster. Shantell’s wise words rang in my heart. There are no mistakes just a wonderful process. I should paint this.

I guess this painting session got me in the mood to write down the first offical draft of Road Trip. I’m excited. I think I’m done with the Christmas project and now there’s a new women power project.

Road Trip Book has begun

Let the fun times begin. I ‘ve been drawing letters and today I found myself googling Hallmark lettering artists. Then just now I’m looking at my sketches. This is the “stuff” that I love to do. I’m good at it too.

I’ve also spent time going over the story notes from last summer’s road trip. I had a good time but honestly I had a bad attitude here and there along the way. Wait… this just gave me another thought for the book. Let me go write it down.

Ok so I began sketching from all of the places we visited. The problem is I’m no good at drawing King Tut. I can do a pyramid but….

I glanced over my sketches and realized that my book should be about the thoughts I had along the way.

Beautiful thoughts for a beautiful mind.

Yeah I feel good about this book. Starting this book will help me forget about Live Your Story so I can review it, with a fresh pair of eyes next week.

Tomorrow I begin Christmas Tree Designs.
