Facilitating for the First Time

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hello. I co-facilitated a Sip n Paint provided through Reach Studio by Redline Contemporary Art Center. It was located at Spangalang Brewery. The was an event from the 48 Hours of Socially-Engaged Art & Conversation Summit. I was so proud to participate. I did not post my work but it is soon to come. Down below are some pictures I took.

I am doing things different in my life. I am actually an artist, among some of my many pursuits of happiness. I sew, write, and create. I actually consider myself a creator. This is a post to explain where I am in my life. Feel free to stop by for more.

Creativity During COVID-19

I have been making masks to sell and pouches. I have been painting and sculpting. I have been trying to keep busy and not think of all the things happening around me which could push me into a deep depression. I am hoping that I can help and inspire others to do things to keep them from insanity.

I have a website for my products that I sell. I haven’t done any marketing because that would mean that I would have to increase my productivity. Also, I am making new things to add all the time. I have a lot of old items that I will start selling. I am going to list my newest item.

I am not sure if anyone cares but I also share here some of my friends blog posts or items there are selling. I need to find more people who want to spend the time creating to eases there troubled heart. Please tell me what you think about my site, products, or how I am doing on this blog.

This is something I wrote in my therapy writing workshop:

Fall Leaves

In the fall the leaves com down and are left behind. We loose loved ones too. Some fall down and are left by the way side. I know it is hard to let the leaves fall where they may but at times we must let them go to prepare for new ones. I know that the same emotions and thought can be applied to our loved ones. Sometimes we loose people due to tragedy or they just move on but if we accept it we can open our hearts for new people that may fill the void or help with the transition. Life is full of disappointments, loss, and new experiences. We can wait for things to happen or we can do nothing and we won’t move forward.

New Character NiCO, La Mariposa And Kokoro And More Revealed In New Trailer

via New Character NiCO, La Mariposa And Kokoro And More Revealed In New Trailer

I love how this content provider displays the game. First, he shows the new features for this new version of the game. Second, he mentions the additions to the game. Finally, he posts a trailer for you to see on your own. This is an awesome post. I rely on these posts to keep me up to date in the gaming world. I have been following #AntDaGamer for years because of the quality work he provides. He is a dedicated content provider.

The game is pretty good. I love the characters and their costumes. I am still warming up to the anime type games but they more he posts the more I will adjust. This looks like a street fighter type game with plenty of background information. The side scenes give you some story to understand the reasons for the fights. The graphics look wonderful and the movements flawless. All in all, I would think this is a game that is worth trying for any gamer.

Please leave comments or any type of feedback below. I would love to hear from you. Thanks!

Hand Made Crafts

DIY Crafts

I think everyone should do some type of crafts because they are very therapeutic. I can sew small things like blankets for babies or sweaters for dogs. I have a friend that likes to make necklaces because he relaxes him. My sister told me of a woman who recycles clothes and shoes by swapping pieces from each other. There are people who make greeting cards by hand and others decorate. No matter what it is everyone can benefit from crafts.

Simplify Your Summer – DIY Aromatherapy Neck Pillow

dawn-lavender-aromatherapy-pillow-600px

I was searching the web for an easy herbal neck pillow for a manly man who has these tension headaches from his neck. I saw this article and thought he would love this. My friend is very practical, he uses socks for rags to clean anyway so what better for him is a sock for a neck pillow. I will make another for him but for the meantime. He could start with this. Janice, the author of this article is listed on 5minutesformoms.com.

Doggie Clothes

I made a dog sweater for my neighbor’s dog. I took an old shirt and refashioned it. I think I would sew more if I recycled clothes. I have been watching a few ladies on YouTube who reuse material Coolirpa, and Mimi G. Style.

I found someone that I know who does their own thing at home. Aramis Williams. She has her own shop on Etsy called XnithiPrints.

I started this blog post last year thinking of ways I could work from home that would be enjoyable to me. Since then we got a new president that is sending missiles to Syria.

This is a reminder that we don’t have long to focus on the things we love most and make money in a way that will be hard for the president to destroy.

Where Am I?

Day 3: Sleep

I go to sleep most nights and wake up not know where I am or where I’ve been and who was with me.

I lie in the grass where I am surrounded by these dandelions realizing that I can make a necklace. I am somewhere from my past where there were other children my age. Where am I?

There is this wonderful broken road that was important enough to build around the mountain, but now it moves through a piece of the mountain. It is near the ocean, but being makes it a special place. Where am I?

I am moving slowly up and up with a clickety click and swoosh, I am going down at so fast my eyes are watering. I am spinning and finally my stomach catches up to me. Where am I?

I see amazing buildings older than my country. I smell sweets that I have never lived around. I see a palace with mirrors all around me. Where am I?

I lie feeling warm yet cold and smell the air. I hear rushing water and a train passing by. Where am I?

I open my eyes and realize that I was asleep dreaming of past times. I am camping at a park with a stream near the train because it was hidden. I was in my sleeping bag in my tent. While being homeless, I realized that having a good camp spot can make a world of a difference in getting good rest.

Messy

Day 2: Reflections

My room is a mess.

I have clothes that need to be cleaned. I have clothes that don’t fit. I have clothes I don’t wear. I have trash to throw out. I need to organize everything in this room.

My living room is a mess.

I have trash on the desk. I have a dirty carpet. I have no seating arrangements. I have not decorated. I need to make this room as an office or entertaining room but organize it.

My kitchen is a mess.

I have dirty counters that need cleaning. I have a floor that is dirty. I have cabinets untidy. I have a refrigerator that has to be emptied, cleaned, and reorganized.

My hair is a mess.

I have no style in my hair. I have to clean and deep condition it. I have not cut or trimmed it. I need an organized natural hair style.

Messy isn’t who I am.

I am not a messy person, I just have messy habits. I want to be organized in all I do to function properly. Patience and endurance can bring me to an organized me.

Wrong Assignment!

First of all, I am a master of procrastination! I believe the more I procrastinate on doing my chores the more creative I am at writing blogs. For example, today I have been doing some chores at home but just sat down to post a blog. I realized I botched up my last assignment. I was supposed to use the twitter posts provided and embed them in my post.

I did use Twitter and it was a quote I like, but this is what the assignment in the Writing 101 class asked for. I am sorry if this isn’t a long post, but at least it is the right one.
