Art Journaling

Hello, October!

October is here and with the first cold days coming in, I feel Christmas is getting closer and closer. I know you might say it’s still a long way, but let me tell you: time flies by! So before you know it, the winner is gonna settle in and you’ll be hunting for Christmas presents. But hold on, I have to admit there is still plenty of time to art until then…

Women ART 278 October 2015 Cover

So today I’m happy to announce my art has been published in the October issue of an art magazine called Women in Art 278, and you can find the magazine online and in print version that can be both purchased here. This comes as a beautiful birthday gift to me and I am honored to appear in a women art magazine, being for the first time published! There are many amazing women artists published along with my art, and I can only be grateful today for what I am and what I have in my life. Even if we don’t have everything we want in our lives, we often forget to practice gratitude and count the blessings are given to us. If people would know that only by practicing gratitude we attract more and more in our lives… If we look close enough, we could actually see the magnificence of Life!

So today let’s grab a piece of mixed media paper, an art journal or a sketchbook and draw or paint something just for our souls, that doesn’t even have to be near perfection, but which reflects who we truly are as souls beings. Let’s write a few gratitude lines and remember why we are happy for!

Happy birthday to me and to all October celebrating souls!


Octombrie a sosit si cum primele zile reci se instaleaza deja, simt Craciunul din ce in ce mai aproape. Stiu ca s-ar putea sa spuneti ca mai e mult timp pana atunci, dar va reamintesc ca timpul zboara! Asa ca inainte sa bagi de seama, iarna se va instala frumos si vei porni in goana dupa cadouri de Craciun. Dar stai un pic, trebuie sa admit ca pana atunci mai e destul timp pentru arta…

Asa ca sunt bucuroasa sa anunt ca lucrarile mele au fost publicate in editia de Octombrie a unei reviste de arta pentru femei numita Women in Art 278, si ca puteti gasi revista online  si in versiunea printata ce poate fi cumparata de aici. Asta vine ca un frumos cadou de ziua mea si ma simt onorata sa apar intr-o revista dedicata femeilor artiste, fiind pentru prima data cand lucrarile mele sunt publicate! Sunt nenumarate artiste minunate ce au lucrarile publicate alaturi de mine, asa ca nu pot decat sa fiu recunoscatoare astazi pentru ceea ce sunt si ceea ce am in viata mea. Chiar daca nu avem tot ce ne dorim, uitam adesea sa practicam recunostinta si sa numaram binecuvantarile din viata noastra. Daca oamenii ar sti ca doar prin practicarea recunostintei atragem si mai mult in vietile noastre….Daca ne uitam bine in jurul nostru, am putea chiar sa vedem cat de minunata este viata!

Asa ca astazi haideti sa luam o bucta de hartie mixed media, un art jurnal sau un caiet de schite si sa desenam sau sa pictam ceva doar pentru sufletele noastre, care nu trebuie sa fie nici macar aproape de perfectiune, dar care sa reflecte ceea ce suntem noi cu adevarat ca suflete. Haideti sa scriem cateva cuvinte de recunostinta si sa ne aducem aminte motivele pentru care suntem fericiti!

La multi ani mie si tuturor sarbatoritilor din luna octombrie!
