Lunes de Motivacion: Si va hacer lo que ud. sabe hacer......

"Si va a hacer lo que usted sabe hacer, que usted puede hacer- que nunca hace mucho. "

Por Tom Krause

¿Está usted en una ramificación fuera de su zona de confort?

¡Es tan cómodo para vivir dentro de lo que es familiar. Como individuo artista y creativo, es casi imprescindible para salir de su zona de confort y explorar con nuevos medios, técnicas y habilidades. Al salir usted se sorprenderá de lo que puede hacer!

¿Qué puede hacer ahora, que no sabía que se podía hacer antes?
Imagínese la vida si nunca aprendiste a hacer algo nuevo.

Te invitamos a compartir en nuestro blogg... animate hacer algo que nunca hiciste!!!

Monday's Motivation: If you only do what you know you can do......

"If you only do what you know you can do- you never do very much.”

By Tom Krause

Are you branching out of your comfort zone??

 It is so comfortable to live within what is familiar. As an artist and creative individual, it is almost imperative to break out of your comfort zone and explore with new mediums, techniques and skill sets. When you break out you will be amazed at what you can do!!

What can you do now, that you didn’t know you could do before? Imagine life if you never learned to do something new.

What's sprouting in your garden???

Now that spring is here , the climate is changing and beautiful flowers and plants are begining to blossom everywhere you turn. What a wonderful time of year it is.

This wonderful change can bring on alot of changes in our own personal, business and professional lives, for example starting a new creative project or finishing existing ones.

Well here in my studio , I this spring weather has inspired me to start this new mixed media floral collection.
Floral pins Spring 2012 Collection

Each flower has been hand crafted and has mixed media elements which make them 3-dimensional. I tried to use vibrant color schemes and accents to achieve a rich splash of color.
This was the first one completed during the past weekend. It took a while to master, but once I got the hang of it I wanted to explore more types...
This one is my favorite, it reminds me of a tropical paradise garden, that I would love to someday visit.

What's sprouting in your garden?? Have you been working on any interesting spring projects?? We love to hear your comments..we are listening.

How to use your artistic talents to make someone smile?

 In juggle the many aspects of life, we often live within a mental box and forget about those who for some reason or another are suffering in ways we could never imagine. 
During this past weekend, a few people and I decided take a moment out of my life and touch the lives of others.

We organized a Crafts with the Children's Day for the Children of Cooper Hospital, although this project is in it's infancy, it has put a smile on many kids faces. Over this past Easter weekend, we were able to help spread cheer and supply the hospitalized children with fun crafts and Easter activity packs.

It was amazing to see how each family just appreciated us simply being there and thinking of their child. I mean what parent , looks forward to sitting by their child's hospital bed, waiting and praying for their son or daughter to get discharged.

Always remember !!When you don't know what , or how to give of yourself to others, just think of the talents and gifts you already are skilled with and try to spread that to others. I am sure to someone, somewhere it will bring a smile to their face.

So how are you using your creative talents to touch the lives of others??Are there any community service projects you helped organize?Any that you like to start-up? We love to hear your comments.

Lunes de Motivacion:La gente realmente grandes te hacen sentir......

"La gente realmente grandes te hacen sentir que tú, también, puede llegar a ser grande."

Por: Mark Twain

Me encanta esta cita, porque muchas veces en la vida que ponemos tanto énfasis en nosotros mismos y nuestras expectativas personales, que a veces puede ser imposibles de alcanzar, y no nos tomamos el tiempo para centrarnos en las personas que nos rodean. La gente que nos permiten estar en los círculos internos.

¿Con quién te rodeas? Trate de tomar un minuto para pensar en con quién está en su círculo interior y pregúntate a ti mismo, que si son grandes o están llenos de energía negativa y tal vez se convierta en obstaculizar GRANDE.

¿Tiene la gente a tu alrededor GRANDES? Si es así, lo que los hace tan grande y si no ¿qué puede hacer para atraer a la gente grande en tu vida? Nos encantaría escuchar sus comentarios ....

Monday's Motivation: Really great people make you feel that you,

We start April with this great quote:

“Really great people make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

By Mark Twain

I love this quote, because often times in life we put so emphasis on ourselves and meeting our personal expectations, which at times can be impossible to reach, and we don’t take the time out to focus on the people around us. The people we allow to be in our inner circles.

Who do you surround yourself with? Try taking a minute to think about who is in your inner circle and ask yourself, are they GREAT or are they full of negative  energy and perhaps hindering you from becoming GREAT. 

Do you have GREAT people around you? If so, what makes them so GREAT and if not what can you do to draw GREAT people in your life? We love to hear your comments….
