Creative Life A thru Z New Kitchen

Creative Life A thru Z
Jean Hart

Welcome, I'm Jean and thank you for joining me on my creative living blog.
This week I'm on a bit of a vacation.
At home we are renovating the kitchen and it was time to let in the construction team.
Without being able to cook we thought we would take a little trip.
Here is a few photos of how it's going.
Later after I get back I will post the final project.



 It's been a long six weeks. I can't believe we got everything day in time!
Our part was to empty all the cabinets, remove the cabinets we wanted for the garage, and then scrap wallpaper and paint......we finished on Sunday and the crew came in on Monday to put in the new cabinets, install a island and complete new counter tops.
It's all been very exciting.
So until next week, Keep living your creative life.

Creative Life A thru Z~ Let's get Cooking

Creative Life A thru Z

Let's Get Cooking
This morning I made Scones. 
The season is just calling for baking and certain flavors come to mind in the Fall. 

I made cranberry orange scones with a mix from Great Value. 
Just add 5 TBS of butter , 4TBS of milk 

roll out to a 6 inch and cut into 8th

 I have never made scones before and with a mix it was so easy. 
I added the orange flavoring to the mix, and I have to say my house smells wonderful. 
It make a quick and festival breakfast. 
Be Inspired, 
P.S. Why not sit in Nature for Two minutes and enjoy your scone

It's just a rumor I heard

It's just a rumor I heard

Yesterday, today and tomorrow

Yesterday is only a dream, tucked away in the recess's of your mind. Tomorrow only a vision, a hope and dream. The question for today is "
"What will you do today, while you live and breathe and are alive to make your tomorrows happier, wiser and stronger?
Will you sit and wait for the world, your world to change? Or will you have the courage to take a small step to change yourself for your world or the larger world?

The answer of course is yours alone. But, it reminds me of a quote I remember, "If you always do the same things you have always done, then  you will always get the same answer you have always gotten". It's something like that, and I'm sorry I don't remember who said that or if I'm quoting it correctly, but still it is something that has always stayed with me. 
Today, really is the best life you's the present life....the one that you are reaping the benefits of yesterdays decisions and planning for  the future. All things rely I what you do NOW, TODAY.

Heart's desires, they come from within, from without. Idea's are acted upon and plans are made. 
Do they really only come knocking on your door once?

I think that's just a rumor.....for the people who don't meet their dreams half way...

 The Creative Life A thru Z

~N is for Nurturing

 Week Fifteen 

I Remember , by Jean Hart 

"...Begin with life where you find it, and make it better." Carter G. Woodson

There's a lot of talk going around about how to do self love. 
It's true if you don't take care to take care of yourself you will eventually get drained, burned out, and possibly sick. 
I have found that sometimes I need to take a day off and just relax and catch up. 
On those days I have to unplug from all technology, even the TV for a time. 
I start simply by sitting still and letting my mind tell me all the things it's thinking about. 
I love to make lists and this is when I make the most impossible lists of just everything I want to accomplish.  I call this active meditation. 

Art Journal: Light of Possibilities 
Get out your art journal, find a peaceful place to sit and, have something to drink that comforts you, Light a candle or dim the lights.  We are going to meditate. 
1. Draw a circle in the middle of your page, then from that circle create lines to the outer edges, creating a sun and sun-rays. 
2. Color the page with all colors of the rainbow. Color pencil works best for this project. 
3. Now it's time to sit. Set your timer for 20 mins. Sip your drink and just let your mind wonder, daydream and think of all the possibilities of the things you want to accomplish. 
4. For every idea you come up with, write it in the sun-ray, leave the next sun-ray empty. Going to the next thought, write it down. Moving across the page until every other sun-ray is filled in.  
5. After you have filled in the sun-rays with ideas, fill in the next line of sun-rays with an activity of how to start making this idea a reality. 
If any of those ideas sound like something you really want to pursue than start putting the goal and activity on your calendar.  

Witting Journal : I am letting the Star Shine
What does Lifestyle mean to you? 
After having sometime to think about how you want your life to look, feel, and, represent you.  Take out your journal and write exactly what you want. How close are you to living your lifestyle? Is there something you can do right now to help you live that lifestyle? Maybe there is something you could read to help you learn how to get there, or a new food you could try to help you become more conscious about good health. Could you visit a travel agency and collect brochures about places you would like to travel to. Just think not only about what you want but how to have your dreams too. 

N is for Niceties 
What comes to your mind when you say the word niceties? 
Just make a small list of what comes into your mind. Are there any that you could add right now to your life? 

N is for Novice
Creating a hobby. 
It's time to explore. 
Take the time to be a novice at something.
There is something so wonderful about learning a new hobby and being a novice at it. 
This is the time you can learn, make mistakes, and learn again. 
You are not the teacher, the expert, but the student. 

As always have fun with these activities. 
Like, Follow me, Share this blog, and join in. 
I would love to start having conversations about your ideas when you did one of the activities.
