making space

matcha green tea wafflesHappy Friday! I’m thoroughly enjoying the beginning of a three-day weekend due to the Easter holiday. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I truly live for the weekends and recharging.

Today, I visited a new coffee shop, Roots Cafe Co., and tried their Matcha Green Tea Waffle. It was pretty yummy.  So glad I had the opportunity to make a visit today! Afterwards, I worked on an art piece that I drew last year. I’m feeling more comfortable painting these days and fuss less over mistakes. I used acrylics and watercolors primarily. One day, I’d like to have more time to experiment using some of the art journaling techniques I see on Tamara Laporte’s site, Willowing Arts. I love her work! I just don’t have the time to experiment with gel mediums and collaging, and all the fun stuff like fancy brushes, paints, inks, etc. add up!

I still have a long way to go in becoming more skilled at drawing and painting, but I really enjoy making space for creativity and exploration. And sure, it’s also self-care. Wishing you all a lovely Easter weekend!
