Back to School Day!!!

Good Wednesday Morning...

Where we are, its back to school for all the kiddos.....

My son starting Middle School is seriously about to have a break down...sheer nervousness. I am hoping that he will have a great day!

My daughter will start her first day of kindergarten on Friday....um, look out world!

I am ready to go for my highschoolers this year!

In the studio, I decided that there has to be some ground rules....for art and life...

Rule #1....Lighten up! Stop being so hard on myself! Permission to make ugly art....GRANTED! Permission to fail....GRANTED! That takes a whole lot of pressure off....
Welp, I'd better get ready for the big day!
Until next time,
Ophelia

That is a great rule to have. I think we should all follow it because some of our greatest results will come from ugly beginnings.

Happy First day of School to all! I love your rules! I have been kinda hard on myself lately...questioning myself again and my journaling pages and collage. I give myself permission to make ugly art if I enjoyed the creating of it!!!♥ Hugs, Kathy

This is great! I hope the first day was more than awesome for your son!! Good luck on Friday, don't forget your tissues at the bus stop!
Oh yes and one other thing, express yourself, there is no such thing as ugly art, be free and create. If it comes from your heart it will be wonderful!!

Oh that's JUST what I needed to hear (permission to make ugly art) as I have just done a journal page I don't like. Thank you for allowing me to move on from that!!
