Weekend update

The past couple of days, I’ve been debating whether to keep blogging or not because I don’t get a lot of visits and certainly not a lot of comments. But then, I asked myself, why exactly do I keep a blog? While it is nice to receive likes, comments and various feedback, that isn’t the main reason for my blogging. I blog to share my passions, my creations and a little bit about my life. Arts and crafts are my main passion in life but I do have others. Music, movies, my cats, and, actually, my job are all things I’m passionate about. For those who don’t know, I work as an educator in an elementary school. I’m not a teacher, I work before school, at lunch and after school with a group of pre-k and kindergarten students. This year, I have the added task to teach them fine motor skills twice a week. I’ve been doing a lot of research and preparing lots of material for those activities so I’ve decided that I will also share that work here amidst my own personal art. And maybe a few cat photos once in a while.

Today, though, I’m only sharing two things. A zentangle I drew yesterday and a soft toy owl I made today. The zentangle is in the shape of a leaf as I’m still being inspired by this season. The owl is actually stuffed with rice so that it can be heated in the microwave and become a hand warmer. It is stitched by hand because that is my favourite way to work with felt. I love making these little softies so I want to make more in all shapes and colours.

Anyway, thanks for visiting and I wish you a lovely week!
