Artsy Wednesdays: Mandala Painting

Mandalas have been a trend for quite some time now. There are coloring books and textiles with all sorts of mandalas,..there are even apps that allow you to make your own mandalas without having to repeat each motif.

Artsy Wednesdays: Teach Yourself New Skills

Today I was at an event and there is a lot that I realized in those few hours. You all know I love working with my hands.

Little by little that desk top no longer moved because I managed to put EVERYTHING on it. A Cricut, a sewing machine, a big metal cup of tools, a box of God knows what.. That desk morphed into a storage place and I was not pleased with that; especially that I found myself talking everything and working in the living room and that, my friends, is NOT a good thing. I ended up creating a mess in two different rooms now. This had to end.
