If you know Lenny Kravitz, you might be familiar with his song, This Moment Is All There is. This song is quite an anthem for me as I consider time and each passing moment. It’s not a sad song but in contrast it’s a reminder that you can’t regain time. A lost moment is a lost moment. So that’s why I always say to myself, ‘Don’t buy, use what you already have!’ This has been a year in and year out reminder. And I think I’m getting better at it.
My year started by getting all my art supplies out there and just start using them. Pens, paints, brushes, sketchbooks, papers, canvases, art book exercises… all of them! I’m not waiting to get better at art to start using them. I’ve stop thinking that there will be a better time to use them. Because to be honest, that time will never come. The moment that we have now is all there is!
So gather all your art supples and let’s start creating art. Because if you didn’t do it now, you didn’t do it at all. There is no better time that this time!
After returning from a family trip in Canada, I was basically just preparing three classes on Skillshare. It was tough. I thought that this is it. I will never make another class again! Although, I always think such things every time I’m in the process of making a class… 🙂
So I was really happy to have finished the month of July with three classes on Skillshare. Here they are:
In the midst of this, I took a week off and went to Venice. It was in Venice when I received the news from Skillshare that my sticker class was given an award as an outstanding class. I was really really happy to be acknowledged this way. I felt my effort was worth it.
Coming home from holiday, I put together a Venice scrapbook and over the weekend, I designed 18 Kawaii food stickers that I will be printing out, cutting away and selling soon. I’m so excited and I really think they are so cute. But also, this is in preparation for another class on Skillshare that I will publish in September. I’m so excited!
So now I’m asking, “Is the summer getting over?” I can feel the air is getting cooler and of course, August is here. And in this first day of August, new ideas coming my way. I’ll let you know soon. Have a wonderful August and thank you for journeying with me!
