#the100dayproject

the100dayproject-1

I had heard about the 100 day project last year & even followed along with several other bloggers/influencers as they progressed through the 100 days.

Elle Luna is an artist who hosts the project once a year. Basically you choose a project and create it every day for 100 days. So by the end of the 100 days you would have 100 pieces. The best part is that it doesn’t even have to be a piece of art. It could be 100 days of self portraits, short stories, stretching, or even pep talks (so much love for that one!)

I’ve chosen to do 100 days of water color, plants, and embroidery. Combining those concepts each day & hopefully ending with 100 5×7 pieces of art!

I’ll be posting every Sunday with an update of how the week is going and what I’ve made so far!

Art Journaling the Magic Retreat

This past week my mom & I attended a few days of Art Journaling the Magic Retreat at Walt Disney World. It. Was. AWESOME. We absolutely adore Tangie Baxter & Mindy Lacefield. The demos were awesome. The swag was INSANE. And we can not wait for next year’s retreat. Seriously. Be prepared for a ton of photos.

We sketched the Tangled bathrooms right near the entrance and painted them a little while later during lunch & dinner. Possibly my favorite page from my journal. 14

We sketched INSIDE It’s A Small World. It was probably the most difficult with it being so dark. But I love my little Israel girl so much (bottom right corner). 15

Epcot International Festival of the Arts

We finally got to the festival this past weekend! So much love for this event and all of the artists who were there. It was rainy & chilly which made for a perfect, crowd free day.

We started out with lunch naturally. Poutine from Le Cellier in Canada. Oh. My. Yum. We may have also gotten a whiskey flight. And a dessert or two. 😉

And then made our way back to Future World. We stopped and chatted a bit with Jackie Huang and bought some small postcards of her artwork to have signed. Day made 2 hours in.

One of the coolest parts of the festival was the giant paint by number. You get a small tub of Gillden paint with your number on it (I got pink of course) and a brush. It was too cool and I basically wish I could have taken the whole thing home with me. The best part was when we left later that night and the whole thing was almost complete.

I took pictures of the trash bins and the cast member laughed at me. I explained that I just had too.

AP check-in at Innovations East. This was super neat. We got an email a few weeks back telling us about reserved seating for the Disney on Broadway Concert Series. I jumped all over that. More a little later in this post. Also in Innovations East you’ll find Animation Academy! We drew Mickey of course and I was seriously missing an eraser.

The Odyssey Festival Showplace held several seminars throughout the weekend. I totally lucked out with the Photography 101: Lighting and Perspective seminar led by Tom Smutny. The timing was so perfect and I was a super happy lady.

Broadway! Kerry Butler & Kevin Massey performed several songs from Beauty & the Beast, Tarzan, Newsies, and Aladdin. Totally worth it with the reserved AP seating. We didn’t have to wait in line or anything.

And all too soon our day at Epcot was over. So…. we went to Magic Kingdom to get our pirate side on. 😉

I’m calling it A Year of Gatherings.

Documenting one second. Everyday. For one year. It just sounds so daunting.

But I’m really doing it! I’m really loving it. 1SE makes it so EASY. It’s making me so happy to go back and watch the little snaps from the day. I can’t wait to share it with all of you guys at the end of each month. It’s going to be a simple and fun way to document and incorporate my one little word (gather) into my everyday.

 

 

A Year of Gathering

one-little-word

 

I’m so very excited for 2017 & my new One Little Word! I’m using this post as a jumping point for my documenting & will share my January layouts later this month! 🙂

Word  // gather

Definition // come together; assemble or accumulate//bring together and take in from scattered places or sources

My Reason Why // I really want to document the people, places, and things in my life this year. Where I gather, who I gather with, and what I gather. I wanted to invite more opportunities to celebrate these gatherings & to fully enjoy them this year. This word has been floating around in my mind for a few months now & it felt like the perfect fit for this season of my life.

Quotation // “gather up all your scattered dreams & build the life you love…” -unknown (if you know, please tell me!)

Invitation // This year I want to invite more opportunities to gather with the people that I love. To be more aware of these gatherings & really live in the moment whether it’s big or small.

Let Go // Let go of my current morning routine// Let go of my indecisiveness//Let go of  my fears//Let go & Let God

Note to Self // Call to me & I will answer you. -Jeremiah 3:33

 

I am so very excited for 2017 & all of these new gatherings, adventures, & blessings. I can’t wait to share them with you in this space.
