I can totally make Art if I want to.

 “Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make. Good. Art.” 
~Neil Gaiman



“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” 
~Vincent Van Gogh


  
“The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.” 
~Junot Diaz
 


What do all these little peeks add up to?
Well, I redid my upstairs bathroom and since I do not live with unlimited funds and wanted to pretty up my walls...

.... I made wall art guys!!



All I needed was some artist canvas blocks and some scrap booking paper from my local dollar store.  Under $10 for everything I used here. 

I was very hesitant at first, after a Google search showed so really, truly amazing work.  But, I put my fear aside and decided to just go for it!

It's only $10 anyway.
And, it was pretty easy to do.   I didn't even burn my fingers on the glue gun for this project!
Winning.

Next time you see that gorgeous piece of Art on display at your local store, and inwardly groan at the price.
Consider letting your own creativity take a turn.   Who knows?  Maybe you are the next great artist, but you've just  never tried.

This world is but a canvas to our imagination.
~ Henry David Thoreau

Prompt:  In My Cup

Normally it is coffee in my cup.
And that definitely would help me get back into the swing of this blog writing thing.

Have you ever been away from something - not a really long time, not long enough to forget how to do it.   But you know, just enough that... like.... spelling is a problem?

I'd like to personally send each one of you a fruit basket for either not noticing, or not mentioning the numerous grammatical and spelling errors recently.     
No - don't go looking for them now!

The one thing I didn't stop doing during my "break", was my workouts.  I might have missed a day or two, but for the most part - I kept going.   Just did it. 
And let me tell you:  it does a loooooonnngggg way towards keeping stress at bay!

So while it made it hard to juggle time schedules at some times, it was definitely worth it in the end.   Also, working out makes me hot and thirsty.. because you know, I have fat.   So it also keeps me drinking water; and hydration is a very good thing to maintain in busy, stressful times too.

But not just any ole water.   I have seen the ....er, nut.
I'm sorry.. that didn't sound right at all.

The COCONUT!
After my workout I like to have a glass of coconut water.    Sometimes it's just plain coconut.   Others it is mango or pineapple flavoured too.   I don't know why, but it makes me feel full and like I am actually doing yoga on the beach.

Some of you may be aware that coconut Everything is the new wonder food.   It is low in fat, and also aids in digestion, and since I love all things coconut:  Sold!! 

It also is great for photo prompts.
Odd they didn't put that on the label. 



 and one cool edit where I inverted the colours, just for fun.



If you are wondering - yes those are coconut chunks in the water.   
I told you - I love coconut!!    But I don't always drink this particular brand.  

 


If you don't like the idea of things swirling in your cup, there are many other options.

Through The Lens Thursday is a self-improvement photography project that Alison of Writing, Wishing and Greta of Gfunkified, are doing this year (again!).

 Next week’s prompt is BOX
