One of my weekly goals was to create a mosaic cupcake. Yeah!! A completed goal. YES! This goal setting business is good, very good. However...a few things I did not account for. What you don't realize is this was my SECOND mosaic cupcake. A few days ago I posted that i was going to add a little more to my cupcake. Yeah, it went horribly bad. My tweaking......was too much. I believe Shona addresses this in her Artistic Mother book...knowing when enough is a enough. Well, it took me until I went tooooo far. So, i pitched that little lovely and started anew. Still some more tweaking for the next cupcake, which there will be more mosaic cupcakes. It was a fun project. I eventually plan (a monthly goal) to have a group of friends come over to make cupcakes...so after another go at it, I hope to have the project ready to go as a "party" idea project!
Also.....in regards to setting "weekly" goals something that I haven't quite figured out...household chores.....yup....I need to factor in some "artful vacuuming" and "painterly dusting".....ahhh it is a learning process. I will get the hang of it!
I grew up experimenting in art and creativity. I held the belief, and still do, that "I can make that." Not in a smug way, but in a way to challenge myself. Creativity helps keep me connected to the world around me. I am lucky to have a supportive family which includes my husband and three growing children (one attending college).
