DSCN1228 At Christmas I received the book, One Zentangle A Day: A 6 Week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun. Although I haven’t been able to get it out as much as I would like (umm, I’m on day two and it is March!), I have enjoyed using it so far. I can’t say I am doing it “right”, but either way it is pushing me to get creative in a way I might not have on my own.



Sat down with my oldest to do some watercolors the other day. I always think too much about what I want to do instead of being impulsive. My almost 4 year old on the other hand paints with abandon. Every time, I find myself loving his work and wondering why I can’t relax and paint like that!


I got stuck on shades of blue.  I could have played much longer and mixed more colors, but almost 4 year olds move at warp speed.  He was done and ready to move onto the next thing. At least I got to paint one picture!
