So Simple.

So simple is what I hear a lot when it comes to things artsy. It doesn't matter if it's a scrapbook page, a painting, a craft project. We are all our worst critics. Well, I am slowly getting over that hump and so should you. If you are one of these people who think you are not good enough, let it go. You know what???...it really is simple if you do what you love and let it come from your heart. Creativity is a way of expressing our feelings in a non-verbal way and it can also be via writing. The thing I've learned is that what makes me totally happy is the process. The end result may not be what I expected but it's something I can continue to work on and grow and get better as I go along. I feel so in sync with myself when I'm involved in something I love doing. To me it's very much a healing therapy and it took me quite some time and some wonderful teachers to take me to where I am today. If you haven't taken a class or given yourself the opportunity to let out that creative beast then do so. There are many wonderful classes out there and some very wonderful souls who want to share their gifts with us. I am taking a few classes myself right now and I've met sooooo many amazing artists and teachers and people. I am creating this heart which has been quite a challenge for me but it's been so much fun. Here is a picture of it , in process. I Will definitely post the finished piece when it's done....hop on over to Roses on My Table and check out the site . I'm sure you will find lots of things you'll love....take care and Blessings to you all...


  1. Yolanda this is gorgeous! And you are so right, whenever I get to spend a whole afternoon painting I feel so alive and quite joyful afterwards!

  2. Love the heart. And... Yes...again... you words of wisdom resonate with my soul. I am my worst critique...Learning how to love and honor myself and my gifts has been one of my greatest challenges. Thank you for another important lesson and beautiful creation. You are such an inspiration to me!!! Love and Hugs SS!!!!
