Being a wife, mom and working outside the home sometimes doesn't allow me extra time to learn new things. But this summer, I decided to schedule time in to take a new class from Junelle Jacobson, called Farmer's Market. It has been an amazing class, filled with inspiration and fun.
I have tried my hand at sketching over the years, but always was very critical of my artwork. Many times getting frustrated and putting it down. Now, I am taking time each day to to sketch and I am learning to enjoy the process.
The best part of sketching is learning again how to create with watercolors. I just love the process of mixing the colors, applying them and watching my sketches come alive. As I get more comfortable with sharing my projects with you all, I will. Not all are 5 star quality, (see my blogging friend Beth's post on it), but I am learning how to be alright with that. What is most important, is that I am taking the time to invest in myself and my creativity. By making time to be creative, I have more energy and am able to give that much more as a wife and mom.
Hoping you find time to invest in you today, sweet friends.
