Paint Party Friday! Moleskine Part 2

Hello and happy Friday my friends. I hope you are all well. How are you all feeling? I’m seeing the weather change very fast and the cold roll in. We’ve had rain and cool weather. I miss the way the sun hits all the autumn colours. I’ve been dedicating some time each day to paint in my book and I’ve tried not to be so uptight about things being “perfect” to just go with the flow more. Hope you are all well and thank you so much for all your love and comments. I’m linking up with Paint Party Friday and I hope you go check out all the other lovely artist as well. Have a beautiful Friday and a lovely weekend.

Dear February…

Where did you go?

Fast and very cold


I kept busy with the kids, lunches, laundry, cooking, cleaning and doctors appointments.

Even though February was cold and long

I kept busy and

I did a lot of art and uploaded to my Etsy Shop.

I also received beautiful loving gifts from my husband. Flowers and Chocolates. He is very romantic. ❤️

Grateful for my health results

A lot of PA Days

The month ended with more doctor appointments.

I feel that February was testy and a little tedious to me.

I was a little irritated with social media. I focused on things that I enjoy and that make me happy. I’m so grateful for everything that I went through in February and I’m also glad the month is over.

I’m happy March is here and I look forward to Spring. How about you? How was your month? I hope you are all well and happy.

Thank you for reading my post.

Much love and happiness to you all.

Thank you.

Do What You Love!

Happy February! Do you wake up everyday and do what you love? Do you look in the mirror and tell your self that you are special and amazing and beautiful and important? I hope you do! I’m here to remind you that YOU are very special and important. I want YOU to do what makes you happy and what brings you joy. Do more of what brings you happiness in your life.

Trust me on this. Don’t sit around and wait for it. I made the mistake many times. GO OUT AND GET IT! JUST GO FOR IT! If you want something you can do it by taking the right steps. One step at a time.

I know you can do it and I would love to know, what brings you joy? Is it dancing? art? photography? writing? walking? I would love for you to do more of what brings you joy and laughter. I know for me a lot of things bring me joy that I would like to do this year that I haven’t for a long time. I doubt my self, I feed my brain with thoughts like “it’s too late to do that” or “I’m not good anymore”. STOP RIGHT THERE! Says who? WHO MADE THE RULES? No one! There are no rules! WOW right? Listen up people, this goes for me too. It’s never too late!

This year and for the rest of my life my goal is do everything that I doubted I could do. Does that make sense? Do it for your self! You come first in life. Your health and wellness matter and what also matters most is what goes on in your head and heart. Feed the Soul with love and goodness. Feed your mind with positivity. Feed the heart with love and be easy on your self. Love your self. Never give up on your dreams. Take one step at a time to make it happen. Don’t let fear drive you away from what you love to do. Be in the moment, feel it and do it!

My list

  1. Art exhibition
  2. Take art lesson
  3. Take drama lesson
  4. Be in a play
  5. Write a book
  6. Hike mountains
  7. Travel travel travel and see the world
  8. Dance

What are some things on your list? I would love to know in the comments.

I’ve been painting a lot and I uploaded my art on ETSY. These are the Original pieces that are on sale. I hope you visit the store and have a look around. I use watercolours, acrylics and a mixture of both. I’m going to make a new collection soon that will include ink. I also want to create smaller pieces and very big canvases.


I really enjoy making art and I’ve been enjoying vlogging as well. I’m trying to stay positive about everything. I’m really trying to live in the moment.

I truly hope February brings you joy, love and comfort. Do what you love and enjoy because life is too short. Look and feel what’s inside you and what brings fire to your soul. If it’s making art, singing, dancing, collecting stamps or writing. Do what you love. I would love for you to share in the comments what you do that makes you happy…and please do more of it!

Much Love to you all,

Be kind and gentle to your self,
