Art Assignment-Week 4

Happy Wednesday, Girls!! I am loving all your work you post in our FB Mind.Body.Soul. group. Many of you are catching up...Yay! Remember...you are never, ever behind. You can find the entire class here...so take your time:).

We have a WINNER from Week 3....Congrats to Selenaintx from "Nursing a Scrapbook Addiction". Please email your addy to les262@embarqmail.com  Hooray!!


Just a note...to all the Winners so far...I haven't mailed anything yet...plan on that this Friday:) And speaking of prizes we WILL have one for Week 4 on tomorrow's post...which is a guest tutorial. I think you'll love it.


Okay...on with Today's Art Assignment. I asked you  some pretty tough questions on Monday. I hope that didn't scare anybody off. Our addictions/vices/whatever you call them come in 100's of forms. Mine just happens to be food. I love how several of you pointed out that it could be anything that keeps us from living our dreams....spending too much time on the computer, watching hours and hours of mindless TV and so many more. 


My intentions with Monday's assignment was to get you to thinking about our weakness's...whatever they may be. I used to spend hours on FB and blog hopping until I realized that I wasn't actually living my life in real time but virtually. Yes, I was inspired by sooo many blog posts, groups, challenges, etc...but I wasn't actually doing any of them. I was too busy dreaming of doing them.


Big, Big difference.


Today's Assignment is one of my favorites! I want you to create either a one or two page spread about what it looks like when you are living the way you truly envision. 







The page I am working on is filled with my favorite colors {aqua, yellow and bahama blue}, flowers, butterflies and a sweet girl that represents me with wings. She is holding a heart. She is happy and content. She is not chained to food or the internet. She is in control and she is listening to her heart and living her dreams. 


Take your time with this assignment. Make it special and lovely and true. I can't wait to see what you come up with!


Waiting for the fish to bite 
or waiting for wind to fly a kite.  
Or waiting around for
 Friday night
 or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake
 or a pot to boil
 or a better break 
or a string of pearls or a pair of pants
 or a wig with curls 
or another chance. 
 Everyone is just waiting.

No more waiting, girls!! Now is the time OVERCOME our addictions to food or the internet or TV or procrastination. NO MORE waiting around.
The TIME IS NOW!:)

    This weekend, I'm focusing on putting things back where they belong to make room for my creativity to flow.
