Sleepy Sundays: Snowy Sunday

There are many places around the globe that experienced snow this weekend. If you were on the east coast, like I am, you got hit by the storm known as Jonas, or as it’s being captioned in photos across the internet, “Blizzard of 2016.”

Here are some snaps we took while emerging from our cave. Even though we were snowed in, we managed to make fun of it. The coffee and hot chocolate flowed. I was finally able to sit down and get some writing and art requests done. It’s about time too, since I’ve been a bit overwhelmed lately.

What do you enjoy doing during a snow day? Do you get snow where you live?

Have a cozy Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Ancient

In our speedy process these days with our heads buried in our phones we sometimes forget how to love. I’m as guilty of it as anyone is. We could be kinder to one another. Lend a hand to one another.

People sometimes ask me how is it that I interact with all of the lovely, talented people that I do. My response is always the same. I try to love everyone from the start. I try to be friendly. That is all.

All I’m saying is sometimes a simple hello to someone that’s not expecting it can change someone’s day for the better. We could be kinder to one another.

Try to reach out to someone that could use it today. For me.

Simply because we could in fact be kinder to one another.  Not just on a Sunday but any day of the week.

We all thrive on love rather than hate.

This art was inspired by a dream I had of two characters I had never met or seen before in my life. It was as if they stepped out of some mythical painting. I had to work them into my art somehow. How I saw them, was two souls that had been recycled over and over, always fated to falling in love over & over in each lifetime that they meet again. I plan to work them into a short story some day.

Have you ever had a dream about people you’ve never met? Do you believe that love can heal? Will you be kind to someone today?

Have a love-filled Sunday!

We made it to 2016, loves! Happy New Year!

This week’s Sleepy Sundays post was inspired by the neon lights and bright colors of the 1980’s. I’ve been doing research on 80’s dance clubs for an art/film project and it’s been spilling over into my designs. Truth be told, I always wanted a neon sign in my apartment like Selena Kyle.

Do you like flashy colors?

Have a bright Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Décor

I’m going to let you in on a little CardCastles secret. The Sleepy Sundays posts are usually completed ahead of time (usually late Saturday nights) so that they are ready for early Sunday mornings.

This is the first Sleepy Sundays post to break that rule. While your artist/writer here had a blinding migraine through the night and into the morning, it was difficult to maintain my duties here. However, I refused to let you down.

I present to you some artwork I designed with living room décor in mind. It’s still in the beginning stages. When & if it reaches the finished product, it may end up on my Twenty20 gallery for purchase.

What is your favorite item in your living room?

Have a decorative Sunday!
