Can I Be a Little More Creative?

Can I Be a Little More Creative?

***

Here are the next couple of pages in the activity book.

***

This one says to draw a checkerboard & play a game. I didn’t play a game, though.

This one says to punch holes around the edges, then thread yarn through them. Okay! I did this. The front page looks pretty good, but then I decorated the back of that page with foam letter stickers, and wrote the word yarn in markers all over. Because, why not!

Can I Be a Little More Creative?

***

I feel I haven’t been very creative lately. It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on any scrap book pages, or painted any pictures or rocks, and I really want to get to doing more of that. I do still do some coloring in the books I have, but that’s been about it.

So…I have this fun book. I actually have 3 of them, and I want to do the things it says to do on each page. Maybe this will be the motivation I need to be more creative. Hopefully, I’ll actually complete them all, or most of them, and to keep me accountable, I’ll post my progress here.

Any bets on if I get them done, or get distracted/bored and move on to something else? 🙂

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – February 1, 2019

***

Looks like I missed the whole month of January to post my coloring pages, but I’ve done a few things. I finished that one on the end that I’d started, and did the other three. The pink & blue one I went back to using all markers on it.

You can click on the photos to enlarge and see them better.

I never did get going on the ceramic coloring mugs. They are still waiting….maybe this month I’ll get started on them.

Sorry, Bee, I don’t know what to write about this word, so I just wrote it out.

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 12th

Our challenge hostess, Linda G. Hill, says…

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “art.” Talk about something that’s hanging on your wall. Add a picture, if you’d like. If you have no art on your walls, talk about something in a museum. Have fun!

Thanks, Linda!

This SOCS prompt should be fun. I’m looking forward to see what everyone else posts today. The link above will take you to the main page, where you can join in, and also find other entries.

I’ve got quite a few things hanging on the walls around here, but not as much as I used to have.

Years ago we planned on painting the walls, so I took everything down…and the walls never did get painted, so I’ve occasionally hung some more stuff up. Here’s just a few.

I got this painting at a yard sale. I like it because it’s the little Dia de Los Muertos skeletons dancing. I really love anything to do with the Mexican celebration of Day of the Dead, and little skeletons doing ordinary things are to honor those who have passed on.

In the bottom left corner is a small greeting card. My aunt gave me this for Halloween one year, when I was just a little kid. I’ve kept it all these years because if you know me, I love ghosts and Halloween.

In the bottom right corner is a blank card I found somewhere. It is a tiger and a kitten. A tiger is my spirit animal, and of course I love all kittens & cats.

So, yeah, you could say this all means a lot to me.

***

This needlepoint of a Siamese cat, I found a yard sale, too. Of course a cat…and it reminds me of our outside cat, Big Man, blue eyes and all.

***

This tiger painting I’ve had a long time. My mother painted it for me. She did oil paintings all the time, and there were so many different subjects she painted. I still have a lot of them, but others were sold. This one is special.

***

Here’s a couple of paintings I’ve done to showcase my blogging…teleportingweena & Ghost. They were done in acrylic, and aren’t framed or anything, but the orange one is hanging on the wall, and the blue ones is propped up beneath it. I see them every day. The orange one is made to look like my other blog on blogger. That’s the way the background theme looks.  The Ghost one has some shimmery shiny kind of paint, so that in different lights, the word appears and disappears. Pretty cool!

***

There are other paintings I’ve done here on the walls, and my collection of crosses are covering the wall above my computer desk. Nothing at all is fancy or expensive, but I like them all.

The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt – December 1, 2018

***

I’m barely making it in under the wire for my entry in the Escapist Coloring Club for this month’s page. Mostly I’ve just done these from a coloring book of interesting designs. I finished the first two, and am still working on the third one. The last one is a small coloring page from the back of one of our calendars.

***

I got the ceramic mug to color from my daughter on my birthday. I started out to color it, but the markers were not working and were mostly dried up. I tried reviving them, but it didn’t work either. So, the other day I went to a craft store, looking for more of the food safe markers to use, but couldn’t find any. I did find this other mug to color, and it has little paint pots of color to use. I’ll use this on both mugs. Now, just taking time to actually paint them! After the color is on, you bake the cups in the oven for a little while, which sets the color, and then you can use them to drink from.

This will be my project for next month!

Poem # 31

SPIDER DANCE

~

Weave your web of love around me

Seduce me with your words, sublime

Silken strands to hold and bind me

Capture me…I’ll call you mine…

Spin your web in sticky spirals

I’ll never want to flee,

Lure me with your lyrics, love…

Come closer…come get me.

Dance with me, my Spider…dance…

Be wanton with your wildness,

Pierce me with your poisonous lance,

Our rebel love is reckless.

Poem # 30

IF WE LIVED IN THE WOODS

~

If we lived in the woods,

What would we do?

Watch out for wolves,

And practice “Hoo-Doo”.

If we lived in the woods,

It would never be dull.

We would pick mushrooms and

Light up the Skull.

If we lived in the woods,

We would not have a phone.

We could bake a cake, and

Visit the Crone.

If we lived in the woods,

We would have to be focused.

We’d have to watch out for

Bats and the Locusts.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d light a candle.

It would never be too much

To Handle.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d sit and converse,

With the flora and fauna, and

Things of the Earth.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d chant and invoke,

Spirits of those of whom

Time Never Spoke.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d never be sad.

The rest of the world will

Call us Mad.

If we lived in the woods,

We’d play ‘neath the pines.

We’d make our peace with the

Spooks and the Signs.

If we lived in the woods,

We would howl at the Moon,

And dance in it’s light

From August till June.

If we lived in the woods…

If we lived in the woods…

Poem # 29

WITCHY FUN

~

From Oz to Salem, to suburban mayhem,

The witches entertained us all.

The witch of the west, was creepy at best,

And Glinda was belle of the ball.

Samantha twitched her nose,

Whenever she chose, and

Sabrina’s cat talks to her, it is true.

Elphaba was wicked,

Endora was vivid…

They all were an interesting crew.

The Sanderson sisters were funny and camp,

The witches of Eastwick were duped…

They all used their craft, and a bit of their vamp,

But Morticia’s my all favorite champ.

~

Shows referenced = Bewitched, The Wizard of Oz, The Addams Family, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hocus Pocus, The Witches of Eastwick, and Wicked (broadway play)
