Hugs And Kisses

Hugs Kisses

My new canvas art that is now hanging in our newly painted bedroom. I like it. It is teal and yellow paint. The circle and x is made out of a cool copper paper that I found at Hobby Lobby. I love feeling the crinkly paper! The & sign is a thick paper product found at Hobby Lobby. Painted it yellow and then decided to add some bling! I had the color glass for some time and decided to use it finally. I got to play with the glue gun and even burned my finger a few times. 🙂 Still fun.

The only ones to like it on Facebook was my dear sweet daughter and my friend Beth. They are nice people so not surprised they liked it. It was disappointing more didn’t. I guess what matters is I like it and hubby likes it. Or at least that is what he tells me. LOL

Sometimes I let things get to me or read too much into it. I guess when you see all your friends liking other people’s canvas art at those art parties and then they don’t yours it makes me wonder.

I think that is why I struggle with completing my book. I feel once I do and submit publish, no one is going to like it. I then bounce back to who cares? As long as I enjoyed writing it and a few people like it.

A daily struggle.

When will I ever quit caring? Do you struggle with people liking your creations whether it is writing or art? Or am I weird and lacking confidence? 🙂

Journal June 8-14

 

Time to journal post again. 🙂 Took a break for a few months.

June 8

Question? What makes you miserable?

2012

When my family does not appreciate what I do for them. It may be little things but a nice thanks would be appreciated and not a sarcastic one either. 😉

2013

No entry. Guess I was not miserable. 🙂

2014

I do not like when people put others down. Makes me wonder why they think they can do that. Makes me miserable thinking about the why.

Question? What makes a good friend?

2012

Someone who listens and cares. The friend that is there for you. A friend that wants to spend time with you.

2013

No entry. I think I went into hibernation from friends.

2014

A good listener! I have too many that only tell me their problems and do not care to listen to mine. I begin to tell mine and they interrupt with telling me theirs. I of course stop talking about mine and listen.

Question? How many cups of coffee did you drink today?

2012

None! I am not a coffee drinker. I do love Pepsi! I had one. I drank water at the show. 🙂 Go me.

2013

No entry. Must mean no caffeine so I had no energy to write in here. 🙂

2014

Dislike coffee! Zero! Don’t like the smell of it either. Now, I do love Pepsi. I have had one today! Trying to limit my intake because of the sugar. I don’t think I will ever completely rule out a Pepsi but at least cut back. 🙂

Question? What is your favorite thing to do on a Friday night?

2012

Go on a date with my hubby. It does not happen too much anymore. I believe it has been replaced with the whole family going to a movie or out to eat. 🙂

2013

No entry. I must have been on a date! 🙂

2014

Movie and a pizza with the family! Usually we rent the movie and bring the pizza home. Once in awhile we go to the movies. We love to do that but it really adds up in cost because we love to get popcorn and a drink. 🙂 Did you know they sell beer at movies now? Crazy! I like a good beer now and then but I think that is going a bit far.

June 12

Question? Is something in your way? Can you move it?

2012

That thing called procrastination! Yes I can move it. I may not everyday but if I set goals I can usually succeed.

2013

No entry. Procrastination did not get moved today.

2014

Motivation, lack of! It goes in spurts with me. Right now it flew out the window. Yes I can move it, just need to set those goals.

June 13

Question? Something that made you worry today…..

2012

I worry about my boys growing up to be caring and energetic men. I think electronics rule their lives too much. Makes them lazy and not get involved in what is going on around them.

2013

No entry. No worrries?

2014

I worry that my kids and hubby will not be happy. Depression seems to be widespread in this world anymore. I hope it will not happen to any of them. Scary what depression can do someone.

Question? Did you exercise today?

2012

I sure did! I walked on the treadmill for 20mins. and sweated like crazy. I am trying to do regular exercise. I do enjoy it. It’s just that motivation thing showing up again.

2013

No entry. I’m hoping I was too tired from exercising to write one. 🙂

2014

Nope. I thought about it. My app told me to. I should have. Motivation did not show up.
