My Recipe for Joy
#10DCAC Day 9
This prompt was fun! It took more than 20 minutes but I had so much fun! It reminded me of my scrapbooking days. I had made a collage photos of my family and printed out a few copies. I knew I wanted family photos for my recipe.
I love my wild and crazy family, with all our craziness and silliness. When we are together there is so much laughter and love. Those times sustain me when the days are not so sunny.
I hope you are enjoying your family, your craziness and silliness. Hold tight to those memories.
See you tomorrow for our final prompt!

Recipe for Joy
Pondering joy this morning. Of course with the name of my studio, Choose Joy, I guess I often think about joy. The most joyful people I have encountered in my life have had many ups and downs and were truly joyful. I think we must experience sorrow to truly experience Joy.
What would you put in your recipe for Joy?
Please share your recipe. Lynne and I are enjoying the various creations you have shared. It is fun to see the different ideas. Choose your camera, your paintbrush, your encaustic supplies, your colored pencils, it’s all good! We only have one more day to our 10 day challenge. We will have the drawing on Wednesday for the prizes. Remember all you need is to use the #10dcac on instagram or facebook to be entered!
A Few of My Favorite Things
It was hard to choose something for this prompt! So many of my favorite things are NOT material items. I’ve always loved this vase that a friend gave to my mother. I love the vivid colors. It is perfect to put sunflowers in. It always brought a smile to my mom. And I think of her and my friend when I look at it.
I used Inktense Pencils with this. Someone used these in their creation for Create Your Own Sunshine and that reminded me how much I enjoy the colors and then when you add water – WOW! They really pop. I had more time for this prompt. I was able to lose myself in the colors. It seems a luxury to be able to do that. I was like a small child wrapped up in the moment as I colored. Time just slipped away! I love art journaling and creating art because of this. The process of creating is freeing.
When I looked at my list of favorite things after I was finished I realized I had put GREEN CHILI twice! And I did not get all my favorites listed. I could add many more like rainbows, sunrises, kindness, trees, sunsets . . .
I hope you take time today to create! Make a list of your favorite things and share with us. Give yourself a few moments to create art!
