Have you been so busy you’ve forgotten to enjoy the simple things in life? Or, you’ve set aside something you love to do in order to finish your current project?
I confess. I have.
So far, 2022 has been a crazy year for me. Not necessarily in a bad way…just BUSY. I’m doing what I love and I’m thankful. However, there are times I get bogged down with deadlines, social media, book launches, and I don’t take time to look after myself. This is so important for us, isn’t it? Hobbies, spending time with family/friends, exercise, etc are vital for all of us.
One of my favorite things to do is tole painting. So, recently I put aside everything else and picked up my paintbrush again! Guess what?
It made me smile. I’d forgotten how much I love to create a scene on wood. It’s also my place of serenity. Helps calm me. Here are pictures of my most recent project. This is a Jamie Mills-Price design. She’s awesome!
