Creativity

So I was feeling creative, and decided that I wanted to paint something festive for the holiday! Halloween has not been a favorite holiday of mine lately, but it is starting to grow on me again.

As I child I remember getting dressed up and spending a fun-filled evening with some of my best friends and eating way too much sugar. Trading candy in large piles on the floor in the entry way is one of the most vivid memories I have of this time. My least favorite being those icky almond joys…but I digress.

Here is the painting that I decided to copy from an image I found online, I do think it turned out fairly nicely, and is something I feel is nice and festive.

The yellow pumpkin didn’t turn out exactly as desired, but I did like the overall look of what resulted!

 

Also it is getting to be that time of year where we think about gifts and holidays and people we love. Arbonne has some pretty great products that are out just for the holiday season, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you are curious about finding out more!

Until next time

Thanksgiving Contest - What Are You Thankful For?

Let’s remember all of those nurses that are hard at work today!

This year, those of us that were working on our unit had set up a  potluck long in advance and will be having a wonderful feast! Dividing up all that work allowed for everyone to contribute and for there to be a lovely feast.

I am grateful and thankful for my family, friends, and to be working on such a wonderful unit where we are family! I am also grateful for the help and guidance from all of the members of my work family during this time of transition from student to working professional! Additionally I am thankful to be healthy and have plenty of food on my table this year.

Any of you out there that have any good stories, or traditions for those working or not on this festive day? Please leave them in the comments.

Happy Thanksgiving all!
