Tending to Creativity~Lunchbreak

In a comment to my post on tending to creativity, Mrs. CmJones wrote,

“I am learning to just sit down pick up my art journal and materials and let my heart guide my hand as I put color to the page. This is now allowing me to hear and see my inner self that has been buried or given to others. I love that my creativity is letting me see myself.”

I felt the tightness yesterday. The shortness of temper, of patience, of breath. I needed to pause. My head hurt. My heart hurt.
I paused from the phone, the drama, the frigid office air (ifyouknowwhatimean) and went home for lunch and to tend to creativity. I continued to prepare the luncheon favors above. There will be 30 in all.

Yesterday’s Lunchbreak creativity birthed gratitude for~

 1.       Chalkboard paint

2.       Old bottles

3.       The smooth way the paintbrush glides on the smooth glass

4.       Painting over sloppy lettering

5.       The wish that all of life’s mistakes could also be painted over

If you don’t make mistakes, you’re not working on hard enough problems. And that’s a big mistake. ~F. Wikzek
