Onwards and Upwards

Hello lovelies! I hope you are enjoying the first glimpses of Spring that we have been experiencing lately!  I am very thankful for washing on the line this morning! 

So, what's been happening round here lately?

Well! Since my last post on setting goals, I have bought myself a week-by-week diary to help me stay intentional in my young art business. I seem to find it so easy to lose time in the week if I haven't got a specific idea of what needs to be achieved, and more often than not, I can end up doing the things I LIKE TO DO rather than doing the things I NEED TO DO! So writing down the tasks that need to be done-setting the goals for each day seems to be helping me. (And the fact that the diary is a very cute and colourful design is a bonus, of course!)

So, Brave action not procrastination!
I have found that at the moment I have both my art tasks and my home tasks on the same planner which then helps me not to forget the family events/tasks that are just as important as the creative things!!! (Just in case I get carried away with painting!!!)

Planning with the birds!

This is also going to help me with my next exciting news! A group of friends and I are putting together our very first Art Exhibition at our Church venue in March! We are so excited about this as it is the first time we have organised an event like this from scratch. So we are all working hard to get our work ready for the Private View on Sunday 22nd from 2-4pm. 

Everyone is welcome so if you are in the area do pop in and say hi! We would love to see you!

Our very own Art Exhibition!
One thing in getting together with my friends to plan the exhibition, I have found it to be very encouraging for me personally. I am happy to spend the day painting on my own, but at the times when I am feeling disheartened or lacking in motivation, it has been so good to chat and share ideas and suggestions with folk who are like-minded. It all helps to re energize and spur us on! 

On a totally different note- I saw these strawberry tops the other day- don't they look like an interesting kind of flower??!! 
Or maybe it's just me! 
But I am going to have to do a bit of drawing/doodling methinks!

Til next time! Keep on keeping on!
Flowery strawberries!
