A Tale of Two Spinachs. Did you ever expect something and then rather awkwardly discover it wasn't that way at all. That your assumptions had perhaps even held you cack from something you could have been enjoying all along? . .  Our friend Drew has a  story about Spinach salad . On my blog, I recount the story and the lesson.

🖋Day 100 of the #100dayproject🖋 . . . .  Yes my friends, it is the last day of my 100 Day Project and #100daysofshalagh .  I give you the night pen. Because I am a writer and I value that about myself as much as I value the inner artist. They are equally valuable to my creative self. . .  Thank you to everyone for your amazing enthusiasm and support. I was cheered as I moved through this mindfulness project.  Now off to do a round up blog post! .  I did  a sketch a day with pastels and pencil on a 4x6 piece of paper for 100 consequetive days. Scroll my feed back to see all of them. ....○ My 100 Day Project theme : The use of simple household objects as my sketching subjects is my reminder of the simplicity of life. A sketch a day is proving that I can create for 100 consequetive days. And that my innerchild can trust my innerparent to let her play. ○ . .  #ourcreativeselves #creativemama #pencil #creativityfound #charcoal #innerartist #pastels #asketchaday #taleswithfriends #the100dayschallenge  #100daysofshalagh #creativepractice #arthealsthesoul #createeveryday #creativechallenge #createdaily #happyartistmovement #carveouttimeforart

📒Day 99 of the #100dayproject📒 . . .  My journal. Faithful confidant and companion. Nothing more than a college ruled wire ring binder. But that's all I ever need. .

They do as we do, not as we say. . .  A conversation today in the blog about ditching my "When I Lose the Weight" clothing. I am mortified and embarrassed by the lack of self-acceptance and sheer self-bullying that is our American Female birthright. And not for the first time I am putting myself in this brief blogpost.

DAY 41 of #dyicad2018.... .  Prompted by the word portrait. Redhead in paradise. Based on a picture of Fiona, I found manipulating the little pieces of paper more annoying than they were worth so added paint and markers. . .

A LOOK AT WHAT CUMULATIVE MEANS:  Days 36 through 40 of #dyicad2018 were about spelling my word of the year:TRUST.  Ironically, or kismet-ally, I can claim that doing something continuously and/or daily is exactly how you can create self-trust. My 100 day challenge is wrapping up this weekend and my take away, besides a cool art exhibit on mindfulness, is that you accomplish your life, one day at a time. And when you are good for your word to yourself, you're good everywhere else. .  #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #innerartist #createeveryday #creativemama #creativepractice #bepresent #collectivelycreate #arthealsthesoul #creativechallenge #createdaily #happyartistmovement #taleswithfriends #mixedmediacollage #cutandpaste #collageartist
🎧Day 97 of the #100dayproject🎧 . . .  This is my nanopod. It's tech that's over 10 years old and I haven't updated the music on it in at least half as long. But it's my exercise music. .

A perfectly lovely Summer day spent in the backyard. A breeze that has interrupted the stiflingly hot weather. A hydrangea that has finally bloomed. A pillow bed on the picnic table. Grilling fresh food. New sand in the sandbox. And tomato plants and children that are growing so fast! . . .. .  #backyardblooms #backyardshennanigans #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #beherenow #creativemamas #mywisdomlessons
