noellemena Create by Candle Light. I worked on my second sunflower project that I started when I was teaching yesterday. I wanted to wait till today to really work on it, as teaching takes up your focus, which I love. I have found that I love Relaxing Piano Music and my candles burning when I am creating. It's funny, I do that when I am creating/designing Websites too. Also, just an add in, I should have been taking Methocarbamol sooner. I cannot believe how much it helped my back today. Praying for my surgery to happen sooner than later. I want to be able to stand all day and not need pain medication. Sleep Well All! Hugs and Blessings. — feeling peaceful. 2h

noellemena This happened today. Artists were born! How fabulous. I love teaching, it has always been a huge part of me. As a little girl my mom would come in late at night & I'd be talking in my sleep while sitting up in bed teaching class to my dolls. ‪#‎truestory‬. I feel an Art Studio coming to Nash in the future. RETREATS! I'm thinking of a name. — feeling blessed. 1d

noellemena That's one GIANT Sunflower!! Crack me up. I'm posting anyway. Now I know what to do (and not do) when I teach some friends this week. It's a challenge using "just" what you have!! I have no stamps or ink pads etc. I did have a ton of fun! In the end, a good day. — feeling paint under my fingernails. #mixedmedia #findingmywayforward 1w

noellemena Being back in my 4000 sqft house that we built 18 years ago, alone... is hard. We raised our family here but it's also a symbol of so much that went wrong. Watching the storm roll in from the gym window. Taking a breath, and getting ready to get serious. #menamovingforward 3mon

noellemena Mac in a Mug. No lectures. I'm well aware of the health benefits here It's at least Annie's Mac! 8mon
  •   leisahammett You know, I know it's just a saying. But, i cringe when I read it, and I read it so much. "Don't judge." I hate the thought that people are so concerned or feel they need to be concerned that others are judging. Yeah, there's the part about caring if others are judging, but I'm talking about the culture of judging that created the saying. Ha. I guess we live in a culture where it's all about being at the supermarket 24/7 with our big ol' basket of groceries on display and the long line behind and on either side of you. Ha. xo 5mon

noellemena Turned around to find a bear behind me. @isisdazzles and her hats. This little woman of mine has blessed me so. I actually called her that when Jose handed her to me when she was born. She's always been my little woman & at only 5ft half inch, she always will be. 8mon

noellemena You are confined only by the walls you build yourself. Get in the game. I loved seeing this baby palm tree today busting through the tennis court. Thoughts of determination. Thoughts of how we can even be determined to be where we are not supposed to be. Taking Risks. Not settling. Bust through. 9mon
