Great to lift someone’s spirits or your OWN too.. I wanted to place these in a bowl by the front door or even on my coffee table.. But I have placed them in one of my candle trays. (Don’t look too bad i guess)..

The only thing with clay is you have to wait until it is dry and hard enough, to use paints on it. The other thing you can do is buy a bag of rocks from any Home Center store and paint them which are way smoother to work on. Only remember to soak them in soapy water and wash and dry them properly.  Paint them with a base coat and once they are dry you are ready to paint them with any acrylics paint and use various types of brushes depending on what you want to write or just draw.

I can’t wait to try that out myself..

Happy Crafty Weekend to All!

Creativity Week – Day 1 of 7

All it takes a little willpower, a little dedication and a bit of passion to continue to do something you did or enjoyed in the past and not get distracted by the mundane routine of our so called busy lives. So I decided to make some time and commitment to myself for at least a week.

There is an old saying, “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Just the act of getting started and at a glance you can tell if it was all worth your time and effort….

Well I totally think it is! I believe it’s all about overcoming the initial inertia, and then it’s much simpler to keep going. So Wish me luck and I hope I can remain Creative for the next seven days!!! {at least} 🙂
