I want to be more creative.

I used to be uber creative. I used to draw, paint, act, sketch, sing, etc.. etc..

So I'm asking myself where did that go?
I love doing this stuff, why don't I do it more often? Why don't I find my thing and run with it.

I have a few projects lined up/working on.

1. A bird painting. I'll be posting the finished product once I'm done. I'm also going to be trying a couple new techniques to see what I can come up with.

2. A scrapbook. I've never scrapbooked before so the outcome should be interesting.. I just need some more pictures and more materials.

3. Sketching. I am forever trying to teach myself to sketch/draw. I usually fail miserably and give up.

4. Possibly a 30 day journal challenge. I think I'm going to get the materials tomorrow and catch up with the rest of the group. I love the idea and hope that it turns out well. Look out Border's, I'm coming your way!

Anyways, I just need something to keep me occupied right now. I've been writing an awful lot in here and in a journal I have. I've been neglecting my actual journal and will be cracking it open tonight before I go to bed. I think it is important...

I've also been reading an awful lot. Goodness me I love reading. It's just finding a balance between working, reading, writing and artwork and having a life that I'm not sure how I'll handle everything. but by george, I will!

So plan of action for tomorrow:
  • Work (obviously)
  • Pick up a blank journal from Borders with fun colorful pens. (maybe)
  • Start catching up on the 30 day challenge.
  • Paint for a little while. 
  • Pick up my sketch book and attempt something. (This isn't mandatory, just an idea if time.)
  • Bike Ride. 
  • Blog, obviously.
  • Write in my journal.
  • Read!
  • Sleep.
Long list.
Lots to do.

Good Night.


  1. My goal this year is definitely to sleep more. DEFINITELY :) An hour of day to be exact. I think scrapbooking can be quite the rewarding experience once you see the finished product. Good luck!

  2. I love reading! I read during lunch at work. I've scrapbooked a little nothing much. Just found your blog, look forward to reading more.

  3. Painting is amazing :) anything creative is such a good release for stress... hope you get back into it:)

  4. Great goals! stumbled on your blog-lovely!

    Cheers, Jesa
