I love working digitally, but sometimes I just have to go back to traditional paint and collage elements. I have been so stressed recently and I find that when I take the time to pull out my paintbox and collage papers and glue, that it actually relaxes me in a way that nothing else does. What do you do creatively that helps mangage in your life. I'm interested??

I watch old movies, sky gaze, spend time on pinterest, reading Emily Dickinson poems, reading Catherine Ponder books and reciting sonnets. All keep me creatively inspired and helps me ease my stress.

Dig in the dirt. Pull weeds. Make the yard look neater. And paint just about anything - lawn furniture, walls, my deck.

Clean, move furniture, rearrange in general.

Love this! One of my favorite elements is the little stick figure panda. It is easy to get lost in all the wonderful touches of texture and color. Wonderful my dear. ((HUGS))

I have to paint, cut paper, glue, same as you. Just have to release that creative side. A nice cup of tea with a cookie is nice too.
You are and continue to be a source of joy and happiness in the world. Thank you Vanessa!
