Adventures for the week

Some photos of my adventures

Much to my delight, I had a rare opportunity to immerse myself into several creative activities over the past week including:

Zen Gypsies dance performance at the Jingle Bell Raq Showcase and Fashion Show
an afternoon to dabble in mixed media and complete my sketchbook project submission for 2013 (my 2012 digitized sketchbook can be seen online and just came back to the Brooklyn, NY art library after being on tour this summer)
handcrafting a gift for a dear friend's upcoming birthday
Snowflake Tour of Charles Village Homes in Baltimore, MD - lovely old homes decked out in holiday decorations where the gracious homeowners served us freshly baked treats, warm cider and mulled wine (more on that later)
ran out of household cleaner and made this lovely lemongrass scented, eco-friendly, spray cleaner in about 10 minutes with ingredients that I had in my cupboards;  in a 16 ounce spray bottle mix thoroughly: 7 ounces of water, 7 oz of distilled white vinegar, 3 tablespoons of castile soap, 10 drops of tea tree essential oil, 10 drops of lemongrass (or your favorite) essential oil
finished reading "What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast - and two other short guides to achieving more at work and at home"  by Laura Vanderkam and am eager to give some of the ideas a try
penned a Zen Gypsies blog post about what's been inspiring us lately
Sipped lots of green juice to counteract the cookies and mulled wine from the house tour

I hope you have been able to sneak in some creativity into this busy holiday season too.

Thanks for reading!
