learning to learn


This week has been insanely busy and I have not had the time to post or create. But there was enough time to realize that learning itself is the ultimate reward. 

I no longer torture myself because my attention span or interest on something lasts only long enough to allow me to do something ok.


The year is ending and I have some amazing projects for 2013!!! There will be a few changes in IA, in my home, in my work space, and I am so excited about them.

Above are the new twinks I got in the mail yesterday. Can't wait to use them.

My last project for 2012 still remains to finish the butterfly postcard series. You know, prior to the end of the world thing.

Oh I love all those colors. I too have six cans of paint waiting to be used, almost the same colors. I wonder what your changes will be to IA. Please don't switch over to the google thingy, it's really hard to understand. Well I would visit you anyway, but sometime it's hard to leave comments there. Looking forward to see what changes you have in stock. Happy Holidays.

These really do look like YOUR colors! I love them!

Love those colours and that quote, which has always been a favourite of mine. I'm certain you'll get your postcard series completed before it all south, lol!! In the meantime, I'm quite intrigued re these changes you allude to.. :)

I can so relate to Einstein, well except for that genius part. I do envy your talents.
As Lavender Dreamer said, those colors are you.

Ana, from one "dabbler" to another, I so relate! Your new sparkly paints look amazing! I look forward to seeing what you create with them.

Lois said...

Lovely colours! Change is wonderful. I love it. Wow, am I ever ready for some too. In time... Thank you for all your kind words and support! Lois.

Carpe Annum! For some reason the odd year - 2013 - made me nervous because I was being superstitious but now I realize that a new year is a fresh start. I wish you so much happiness and success with your upcoming projects. Learning is addicting! There is nothing wrong with bouncing from idea/project to idea/project because when one is creative, many things fulfill his/her's artistic urges.
BTW - thank you for all of your lovely comments. I swear one day, I want to experience the joy of you singing at the top of your lungs! XOXO Introvert!
