How is it that an old dictionary bound with a hodge podge of papers makes me so happy? I finally got this baby stitched up and ready for some sketching, painting and random play. It is disheveled and messy and perfect all at the same time!

Enter, that awkward moment when I hug and sniff my journal. Did I just share that?🙃 *

C is for CURIOUS - I consider myself a perpetual student. I love learning and am curious about everything. This week I will CHOOSE to learn something new.

This is week three of the Charming Challenge. It is based on affirmations that coordinate with each letter of the alphabet. And, to tie a little art into the mix, I plan to create a variety of small charms for each letter/word I have chosen.

Want to know more? I blogged about the challenge here: bit.ly/charmingchallenge

Playing along? Be sure to use #charmingchallenge2018 so I can share the love!!😊️

I have been moving through a new season of my life and it has been a real struggle. I've been quieter than usual because I just don't have the energy for all the things.

I am praying for God's peace and comfort each day as I take time for self-care.😊

Ever start something new with feelings of inadequacy and fear, thinking you will never "get it" or feel confident? We’ve all been there. That’s just the beginning and with time it changes.

Don't give up and don't be afraid of being a beginner!

Have you ever made yourself comfy on a chair or sofa while shopping? I remember years ago I was at Target and they had all their spring furniture on display. With coffee in hand, I plopped down on one of the chairs and kicked my feet up to take a break. A short time later, a good friend strolled by unexpectedly and decided to join me. We sat there under the display canopy, resting on the patio furniture for well over an hour and it was quite fun.

Next time you are feeling rushed or stressed, do something unexpected and slow yourself down!😊

B is for BELONGS - Having grown up in a military family, I moved around a lot and started over many times, which included making new friends. A sense of belonging is important to me now just as it was then. •

Q: Besides your home, where are some of your favorite places to create?
A: I am quite terrible at working outside the comforts of my art space. I feel more secure when I work alone and it makes me nervous to be around others while I create. I do enjoy working with an art friend in their home where we can chat and eat yummy snacks!

How about you?😊

If you are participating in the #charmingchallenge2018 have you been reflecting on your letter "A" word this week? If you journal, take about 15 minutes this week to write down why you chose that word and reflect on it. •

I consider myself a newbie to the world of watercolors. I used to be "afraid" of them and found them difficult to use. One thing I have discovered is that quality makes a big difference. •
On the recommendation of my friend, @lorraine_bell I began using the tube watercolor. The vibrancy of color is stunning! A few brands I like: Daniel Smith, Shinhan and Winsor & Newton.

Do you like watercolor? What brands/types do you use?😊

A is for ARTISAN - when I went to college, I was told art was not a viable career choice so I chose computer programming. I used to watch with envy as the art majors carried their tool boxes and art pads across campus. My love of all things creative, eventually led me to making art a career, but it took many years to confidently call myself an artist.

Today is the start of the Charming Challenge. It is based on affirmations that coordinate with each letter of the alphabet. And, to tie a little art into the mix, I plan to create a variety of small charms for each letter/word I have chosen.

Want to know more? I blogged about the challenge here: bit.ly/charmingchallenge and I am chatting about it on my stories today!

At this moment I am listening to Fleetwood Mac on Pandora. Why? Because my sweet friend @susananng likes them and I feel a little closer to her when I hear their music. I met Susan via a Facebook Group a few years ago. She lives in CA and me in Florida...too far apart for my liking, but we have become the best of friends despite the distance.

I am sharing this to say thanks to all of you who bless my life with your comments, emails, and thoughtful cards and gifts. So many times I have received an encouraging email or a handmade card at just the right time.

Those gestures mean so much and without this online community connecting us in so many wonderful ways, just like me and Susan, life would be, well...just less!

I thank you and pray you are richly blessed in the new year and beyond.😘
