My Artistic Self – Week Fifty-Two: Cork Reindeer

It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”― Vincent Van Gogh

week fifty-two – cork reindeer

So here we are. I may have stumbled these last few months in making it to the end of my goal, but I am finally here at my fifty second creative project. And just before Christmas Day as promised (insert fist pump here!).

The main purpose of this project was to rediscover my artistic self, yet through this process combined with that of being a new Mother I have discovered so much more. I have learnt that whatever stage of life you may be at, it is a great achievement to follow what is in your heart. That it is ok to be afraid but not to let it stop you from taking the first step or even the last. And most importantly to be gentle on yourself. For you are your best and worst critic.

For my final creative project I decided to create something fun. I found this little fellow on pinterest through Pretty My Party and decided to give it a try. It was very easy. I just used some corks, a stanley knife, glue, pipe cleaners and googly eyes to make him. I think it took me under 1/2 an hour. Isn’t he cute!

So it is time for me to say goodbye. I’m planning on taking a break from blogging now that I have finished my project. Baby or should I say Toddler C is keeping us very busy and Mr T and I are in the process of searching for our first home to buy. Hopefully with that ‘just right’ space for an art studio.

So until next time… happy painting and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! xoxo
