It’s been 10 days already of #the100dayproject. I have to admit that a couple of days ago I wanted to stop. It started to feel a bit daunting to get to 100 days with my theme. What if I run out of ideas? Of course there are so many ways to go with a theme of hope and healing but what if I get bored of the whole thing? I didn’t stop and I’m taking it day by day. It has been my only painting time each day.
I’ve been mostly focused on healing plants. This is a huge category to study I believe. I’ve painted calendula, aloe, chamomile, peace lily, cheese plant, and lemon balm so far. I’ve learned many things about these healing plants and some I already knew. I often drink chamomile and lemon balm tea as they are relaxing and I swear chamomile helps me fall asleep easier. The peace lily is very detoxifying for your home. I had to go get one. They are easy to take care of as well which is perfect for me. Today I will do a new plant and tomorrow will focus on a different part of hope and healing.
Around Little Butterfly Studio spring is starting to show up. Buds are forming on trees and days are starting to feel warm and sunny. I even managed to wash and hang out the quilts on the line and pot up some pansies. I’m still learning how to use this space too. I’m working on figuring out how to create a newsletter sign up form so you can be the first to hear about any new and exciting things. It doesn’t come naturally to me but I’m stubborn so I will get it done. It may just take me a bit. (yay! I did it!) I’m also trying to figure out how to create story highlights on IG. It wasn’t a good idea for me to attempt that at night when I was exhausted. I decided to try when I’m feeling up to it. I’m learning. :)
