Quote #Crush

February 25: Quote #Crush

Goal or Soul has always been my quote.  It still remains.  I will say, I fail to use this motto once and a while.  When asked to do a task, or attend an event, I try to ask myself, "Does this reach a goal?  or Does it feed my soul?" If the answer is no... then that is my answer to the request.   Lately, I forget to ask myself this, and when I forget I will say yes to everything.  I get overwhelmed and stretched thin. I usually have a good conversation with my husband who helps me prioritize again.  We, as a team, hold this quote close to our hearts.

Medium #Crush

February 24: Medium #Crush

It's hard to choose a favorite medium, but most often I would say I enjoy watercolors. I got these cute little sets for Christmas and they are so handy to take with me. These little watercolors will be great to implement the ideas that Andrea Slusarski shared with us at the #ArtEdNow 2017 conference. Her presentation was motivating for sure and my little watercolors will fit in great.

Animal #Crush

February 23: Animal #Crush

I'm not really an animal person.  I grew up on a farm, we didn't have a ton of animals, but the ones we did, served a purpose.  Cats to catch the mice. Dogs to round up the cows. Milking cows to make money (when my grandparents had the farm). Chickens for eggs and meat.  All the animals were for a purpose.

Animals have a different purpose in suburbia. They are family members. My daughter loves, loves, loves animals.  She is sad to have parents who aren't as crazy about them, so this post is for her, for people like her, for our animal lovers in the world.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we have some neighbor dogs that play the role of our animals.  My family loves these dogs as if they were our own.  We walk them now and again, but most often the kids (and my husband) play and play and play with them in our joined yards. They have two goldens named Cash and Trixie (both pictures are of Cash, Trixie was camera shy :) ). They are both great to have in our lives.  I'm looking forward to hearing about your Animal #crush.

Color #Crush

February 22: Color #Crush

I would say most often I'm a fan of the cool colors.  These are the colors I visit most often in my art.  In my house too... I have a bright green wall, a beautiful blue doors and the gray is a cool gray in the rest of the house.  So what does this say about me.  Well... I Googled it. Take a look a this article from Bustle.

I don't know if this is true for me... I can be chill, but not often. But I would like to hope I'm 'loveable' :)

Website #Crush

February 21: Website #Crush

I really thought about this one, but I had to do the same website as I did last year, CANVA!  I love this tool.  It is the website that I visit the most.  I can create a beautiful banners in seconds.  Better than that, a site that allows people who do not have an eye for design to be successful.  Canva remains to be my website #crush.
