I’ve always, always, always been a worrier. A thinker. One of these people who spend all day daydreaming about the bad things that could happen and going over the bad things that already had happened over and over again. My mind is one of those who could literally drive me mad and even though I tried so hard to just stop thinking I couldn’t do it. All this fighting against it didn’t work and letting it happen made it even worse.
I’m not going to lie, I have had trouble finding the right music for me lately, finding songs that I want to listen to more than just once and finding songs that I really want to add to my playlist.
But April was a busy month music wise and sometimes I couldn’t decide between the new Harry Styles or the new Chainsmokers, and they have been on replay with no end for the past few weeks. And if my “misery” wasn’t bad enough, Shawn Mendes had to drop a new single too! Meeting Hein Cooper, a wonderful musician I really admire, has been an amazing experience this month, which is the reason why he just has to be on this list (Even though I am still angry about my stupid face in the photo with him!).
Hey, Lovelies! It’s time for your first freebie ever! The first one, but definitely not the last one, there are a lot more coming! Free stuff, free printables, free clip arts, free everything! I’ve got a thousand ideas and cannot wait to share them all with you!
The other day I was driving down the highway full speed, windows open and listening to music so loudly my ears almost fell off. The wind blew my hair in my face and the sun was blinding me so much that I could barely see. And I thought to myself “I wish I could close my eyes to enjoy this moment” and I would have done it if it hadn’t meant that I’d crash. Right then I decided to put a list together for you and me about moments when you should stop for a second to close your eyes and just enjoy. Because they might never come again and you want to make the best of it, right? Here are 9 moments when you should close your eyes.
Here comes the finish line! I didn’t want to accept that I couldn’t draw 7 pictures in 7 days and I have been way too slow the entire week. That’s why I sat down yesterday and drew some sketches really really really fast since I wanted to finish this project on time! Besides, it’s eastern and I really want to spend time with my family in peace without being bothered by knowing that I still have to finish this. Unfortunately, our Internet stopped working right after I was ready to post so the blog entry is coming a little late. So today you get day #7, #6 and #5.
I was in the mood for some color today! As I said before this project is to make me draw every day, no matter what it is and no matter if it ends up being bad or good. Today I drew a little watercolor postcard with lots of water and lots of cursing. You can probably make out the people on the boat if you squint a little and look really closely.
Well, damn me! So much for being productive a whole week straight. Drawing every day was exactly the reason I started this project but I simply couldn’t do it due to my current, very stressful life. But I’m back with day #3 now, two days late but that’s better than nothing in my book!
Welcome to day #2! I must admit I have already started to struggle with the sketching week since I just started to work at my new job today and really have other things in my mind right now. Maybe yesterday wasn’t the perfect time to start this project, but I did it, so I will stick with it!
It has been a constant problem of mine that I am too scared to draw simply because of the fear of failure. Because most of the time a drawing doesn’t end up the way I want it to and then I get really discouraged and don’t even want to pick up the pencil the next time I am thinking about drawing. That’s why I absolutely don’t do it often enough. Even though I really love it, it’s it’s not something that’s a part of my daily or even weekly routine. Art and I have a love/hate relationship but this is something I am now trying to change. I have already talked about this in an earlier post, why you shouldn’t give up on drawing, so if you are struggling with the same problem or are thinking of giving up, feel free to head over there to get some encouragement!
For those magic moments when you’re in bed at night, need to relax or just want to tune out the world for a little while.
I wanted to listen to some relaxing music a few days ago but didn’t find a playlist that was suitable for what I wanted. Many playlists had instrumental songs wich I don’t like very much since I want to listen to lyrics when I want to calm down. So I decided to make my own and share it with you guys. I hope you enjoy it and find a few minutes of peace with this playlist.
