30 Days of Blog Lovin' ~ Day #3

Day 3 already, Today has just flown by, actually every day just flies by these days and I don't really seem to be getting ahead. I just wanted to follow on from yesterday about what makes me happy, well something that is pretty simple but brightens my everyday and makes me feel connected to my Grandparents is having fresh flowers in the house. My hubby Don was with me when I bought these,

 
I just get them from our local grocery store and usually I can pick up a couple of bunches marked down. When Don asked who were they for? I said "Me, cause I am worth it!" LOL he replied with "yeah but isn't it my job to buy you flowers?" I had to chuckle as he has only bought me flowers a handful of times over the last 25 years. Maybe I have planted the seed now and he will get the hint! LOL! It is something so simple that can bring a smile to my face every time I walk into the kitchen!

 OK back to today, I have started videoing my next workshop class and have been making resin embellishments. I have a mess everywhere, which is typical of me when I am creating! I just need to wait for a few more things to set then I can put the layout together tomorrow.


I am a shocking procrastinator and go from thinking I can achieve anything and can take on the world to the next minute thinking who am I kidding. The internal battle in me on a daily basis and even a minute to minute basis does my head in at times. The positive voice in my head is ever so slowly taking over the negative voice. But it is still like one step forward and two steps back.
It would be so nice to be able to stay focused with a positive frame of mind for a whole day, I know I would be able to get twice as much done.


I think too that I struggle to believe that I can have it all, that I can have the success that I know I deserve and it frustrates the hell out of me that I still let these thoughts and doubts control me. But I guess the first step is acknowledging them and recognizing them quicker.
I have some pretty big dreams and goals that I want to achieve and the main one is earning enough to replace Don's income so we can enjoy our own financial freedom. I know I have a lot of work to do between now and then and I still have a lot of work to do on the negative nana's in my head.
One step at a time hey!


On the creative front I have been learning to draw faces, I have taken classes from Jamie Dougherty 
and Jane Davenport and have been going through other drawing books that I have here. My girls are starting to look a bit better, A lot were looking really sad there for a bit. I am still waiting to see what my style is going to be! But I guess I will only find that with a lot more practice.



 This is the Girl I did in Jane Davenports Class in Brisbane, she has these cool face stencils that was used for this journal cover and the birds are from napkins!



Ok I have more resin making tonight so I will leave it there and catch you tomorrow!!

Wishing you all a fabulous and productive day tomorrow!!
Thank you for stopping by!!! Much love and hugs to you all!!
