having a goal...

I'm finding that I really enjoy doing something creative every day.  Even if I only spend a few minutes doodling in my sketchbook, it makes me happy.  

Being happy is my goal in life.  It might seems like an odd goal to have.  To most, being happy is probably quite normal.  Well, I've never claimed to be anywhere near normal.  

One of yesterdays projects was a bust and I've glass to try to clean up so I can try another method.  I don't mind.  That is half the fun, isn't?  Experimenting, trying something new.  I could probably look on google and find out how to do what I'm trying to do and maybe I will but it was still fun to give it a whirl.

I've several projects going in the studio.  I find I work better that way, so while paint or glue or what-have-you, dries on one, I can be working on another.  That makes sense doesn't it?

About the photos: the first, a new doll I found today at a bargain shop.  I'd never heard of the Ever After dolls and this is Madeline Hatter, daughter of the Mad Hatter.  She was just so cute and made me giggle so I bought her.  She'll fit right in with Draculaura, Lily Munster and Jade J'Adore.  :-)

The second photo is a work in progress.  It is a mixed media piece I did back in early 2013 and was just horrible.  I finally gesso'd it and am just letting it guide me to what it wants to be.  I've been working on it for a few months, a little at a time, and I'm happy while I move my brush against the canvas.  

It's all about finding my happy.  That is my goal and it is good.

What goal are you working on lately?  I'd love to hear.

thanks for stopping by, 
love & blessings

PS...I've noticed that blogger is not sending me all the comments.  Normally I get an email of any comments posted to my blog, but some of them are not coming through.  I try to reply to you, if I can, because it means so much that you leave me a comment.  So, if you don't hear from me, please don't think that I don't appreciate your comment.  I really do!

It does feel so "right" when we allow ourselves to be creative. I'm glad you didn't give up on your project. (I tend to do that so easily.)

Right now I am involved in combining a poetry project with some illustrations. They both will tell bits of stories from my life. :)

I love to take my paints out and create. I'm not very good at it, but I find it so soothing. I am sorry that our art instructor disappeared, but glad I now have some new classes to take up my time.

Yes, Blogger hasn't been sending comments to me either. But yesterday I found a few in my Yahoo spam.
