Ephemera Giveaway April

Giveaways for Kick-Off Party

I found a sweet little box with a cute bumblebee in my eclectic collection of things. I am a collector of things, especially things made of paper! This little box is now filled with ephemera of various sorts, dyed tea bags, feathers, ribbon, yummy paper, dried flowers, stamps and some lucky winner will get it in the drawing on April 1, 2019.

How can you win this sweet little giveaway?

 

It is simple!  Just come to the party on IG Sunday, March 31 from 8 – 9 p.m. We will be posting a few prompts to create from.  Create your something (it can be as simple as you like). Take a quick photo of your fabulous creation and share it on IG using the hashtag #10DCAC.

Deadline for entries is before noon on Monday, April 1.

Spring Equinox – Full Moon

10DCAC March Day 6 - 1

Every Day is Day 1.

I sit. Candle lit – hour glass turned, coffee at hand. I write, letting the thoughts pour onto the page. Meandering mundane thoughts mixed with to-do lists and the deep thoughts that spill thru the pencil onto the lined paper.

I want to see beyond the image. I want to see and say the unsayable. I want to create art that comes from my soul. I want to find the wonder and awe within.

 

The owl flying overhead between the full moon, completely eclipsed, and I as I lay on the cold ground many years ago.

The full moon on my right, the setting sun on my left as I drove on a lonely stretch of highway.

 

The sound of the waves as I walked the beach one morning.

 

The desert sky at dusk, the warm sand between my toes, the smell of sage after a fresh rain.

Spring Equinox Full Moon #2

Forever is composed of Nows.        

 Emily Dickinson

 

Here’s the thing.

 

It is all interconnected. 

 

 

The memories that stay with me.

The dreams that speak to me at night.

The books I read.

The colors that call me.

The creatures that find me on my path.

 

 

Spring Equinox - Full Moon #1

There is sacredness in each moment.

 

My purpose is to PAY ATTENTION.

 

There’s beauty in it all.

#10DCAC Day 10 – Soul Flower

Soul Flower Collage

I love Florida in the spring!

All of these photos I took in my back yard today. I was surprised at the number of flowers that were blooming. Each flower is individual and beautiful – just as each of us is individual and beautiful.

 

What will you create today?

Can you take a few minutes and choose to make some art?

Grab your phone and take some photos or grab a magazine and a glue stick.

 

We would love to see your creations. Use #10DCAC on Instagram and Facebook.

 

It has been a fun month of creating. These prompts help me keep creating and sharing. Our 10 days of art prompts is over for March. We hope you enjoyed them and were able to choose art and create some art for yourself this month. We will be back in April! Planning a few new surprises so stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram. Looking forward to your beautiful art!

 

See you next time!  (April 1 – 10, 2019).
