I am a couple days late in posting my month in review collage ~ April Fools? 🙂 🙂 🙂 .

I really like putting these little groupings together each month. They give me a snapshot of my thought process for the month. It’s amazing what we can accomplish in a short amount of time, yet rarely pause to give ourselves credit for our growth. I am trying to change that within myself.

What are you not giving yourself enough credit for? I bet you do more than you think. Often just “being” is a wonderful thing so don’t underestimate that time.

Happy Day to you!

I have been doing a lot of writing lately~deep personal reflection, blog writing and even a little poetry. I haven’t written a poem in years but have to say I love how this one came to be. I included it in #L2TCollective which I am sharing with @tinahirsig over on the blog today. Hop on over to LauraTwoTina.com if you want to take a peek and see what else I added to the collection.

Letting my orange door bring me a little “sunshine” on this snowy day 🙂 . Orange is known to add spontaneity and a positive way of looking at life. I try to surround myself with colors that evoke feelings of upliftment. What colors do that for you?

This is the finished painting for #L2TCollective. I was inspired by the collage @tinahirsig created for this project. I always drawn to circles in my work and really liked working within this format with my watercolors.

The colors in her piece reminded me of the ocean, a place I feel very connected to. When I am alone, walking on the beach I feel such a deep sense of tranquility in my heart. I have a “knowing” that all is well that I cannot quite explain.
