Art Journaling

Day 1. Lets Fly into 2011


 I have been on holiday but I'm back now. At the moment I am doing a journal page every day in January
along with women all over the world, using prompts from a mixed media artist called Millande.
It's fun and you can join in too.
You can find out all about it at...


                                                          Day 2. Lets sing in 2011


 I will also post some photos that I  took during my holiday up North and in Auckland.  Graham and I are still on holiday but we are taking day trips around the Bay of Plenty, walking, swimming, picnicing and adventuring.

It's great to be home where I have lots of space to be creative.

Happy holidays and creating.

Please let me know what you have been up to.

Creativity Quote of the day

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will."
George Bernard Shaw
Cheers Janet

Creative Writing
  I am writing a small stone every day, I obtained this idea from Kirsten Cliff who has a haiku blog.
It is a matter of finding a moment and writing a short poem about it.

I find its fun to do writing and creativity exercises every day and it's  essential to my mental  and emotional wellbeing.                                                       

Stones so far.....

The wasp zigzags
over grasses
as a helicopter
flies over the lake

Toitoi comb the breeze

The tee tree smell
lingers long after
roast chicken
and salad

After the picnic
under the tee tree
my husband snores and
bees buzz

Janet, I am thoroughly enjoying your blog! I just took a little detour to pursue the idea of "stones" ~ I was convinved that these were little poems actually written on stones, and realise that that is what I want to do! Thanks for the inspiration ~
