Beautiful Sunset

This was the sunset of yesterday.




When I went grocery-shopping yesterday,
the red of the sunset was so beautiful
that I tried to find the place where it started from.

I found the breathtaking beautiful sunset.

And Mt. Fuji could be seen clearly and magnificently.

I regretted not having a camera with me.
But I kept the beautiful scene in my heart so that I could paint it later. 

Clouds reflected the sunset and shone pink and red.

The upper air was still blue and the shadow of clouds had different colors.

What a beautiful world it was!!

I wish I could depict this beautiful world more accurately.

But considering I didn't have any tools to express my world,
I couldn't be happier.

My world was drastically changed after I learned pastel-painting.

At the same time, I realized words delivered only a little.

I promised myself to feel and receive by my heart
and to express this love-filled world by a variety of ways.

This world is filled with much love.

I feel that love very deep in my heart.

I trust and express that love.

Thank you for letting me notice it.

Love,

Chiaki

I am loving this Poncho! I bought it from the lovely Sara from Pandora's Box. I always find that it is harder for us in the UK to find similar brands such as Mink Pink and Free People. All these Californian blogs have not only got me craving sun but also their brands as well!

Challenge #12 sponsored by Sew Many Cards

Goodmorning all ;o)
Only 60 days to go before it is Christmas, so time to start with your Christmas cards, if you haven't started already! We have a great sketch this week, so maybe you like to join us these two weeks and win a awesome prize ...
 
This time our sponsor is Sew Many Cards
  


Prineville — August 22, 2011 —
A Prefect UnionThe partnership forms a marketing alliance between Sew Many Cards and Stryders List features include an online data base of crafters locally and online as well as a crafting database of local events all over the United States. Both companies provide an array of services for the crafter in everyone! Sew Many Cards announced today that they are joining together with Stryders List by making handmade crafts and selling them to help raise money for special needs children and their families who need help paying for medical costs and/or therapy.


Donate your finished projects to Stryders List
“Crafting is therapeutic in itself, and when you are making something to donate for a great cause, that's a feeling you can't explain,” said Tera, director of Stryders List. “Crafters, especially paper crafters, seem to always have a surplus of cards or other handmade projects they have made lying around, this gives them a source to send their projects to and also help people who really could use some extra finances.”

Finished projects are going up for sale at the Sew Many Cards Shop:
http://www.shop.sewmanycards.com where the money for these items will be donated to a predetermined family each quarter. All proceeds of the digital stamps will go towards the maintenance of the site and advertising. Rest assured that when you donate an item to Stryders List, it will be going toward a good cause.
“Stryders List helped me raise over $50 in just a couple of hours,” said T-mobile, senior manager, Warren. “It was enough to get my son one more therapy session.”


And now for some little inspiration, here are the cards the Design Team made for you as samples ;o) You can click on the names and you go straight to their personal blogs to see the details about their cards ;o) They love to recieve your comments ...This week's sketch is made by Betina and you can find that sketch at the end of this post.

pastel therapy workshop

I finished the pastel workshop last weekend successfully.


I hold 2 types of pastel workshops. One type is just to paint pictures by pastel. The other type is not only painting but also counseling and giving messages to participants, which I call pastel therapy workshop. This therapy workshop is always full soon after I recruit participants in my Japanese blog.
It was the pastel therapy workshop last weekend. There were 4 participants. One of them who is my best friend always lends me her house for this workshop and joins the class.


 
 
 
I always teach the basic skill at first by painting `Circle'.  These above art works are the participants' .
All of them are unique and original! I believe all the paintings represent the painters' personality.


The second painting was `autumn leaves'. I brought real maple and ginkgo leaves to make patterns.


Then by using the patterns, they colored the leaves.


All leaves and all colors are beautiful and gorgeous!!

In my workshop, at first I always like to tell participants everything you create and yourself are perfect and beautiful as they are. 
Then when they paint the 2nd picture, I try to show them their new possibility which they don't notice yet but I can see by adding some essence in their picture.

I know it's very difficult to change their personality soon. But it's easier to notice their pattern through their pictures and to change it if they like to do so by changing how to paint.

In the beginning, I was hesitant to do so. But a few repeated to come back to my workshop and changed their real life dramatically. They encouraged me to do so.


They are my beloved students! Besides painting, I do guided meditation and give them messages by using oracle cards. That is my pastel therapy workshop! 

I'll have another workshop this weekend at the pottery studio I attend. This is just a painting class but hosted with my little sister who is also a pastel instructor.
I like to recruit more participants for this!

pastel workshop

It is my 6th pastel workshop tomorrow. I'll teach how to paint autumn leaves. I love all colors of autumn leaves, red, yellow and still green.


Since I couldn't expect tours due to the disasters, I learned pastel-painting and became an instructor.
This skill helps me a lot now. I'll have 2 more workshops this year.




I painted 2 pictures of the 2nd photo today. The first picture which isn't here was very dark and I realized I was very tired.
Then I painted again after I remembered the happy feeling. Then I could paint the much better ones now. I'm content. I'm ready for tomorrow's workshop!!

Please enjoy all the moments of the changing colors of autumn leaves!!!
It has already started!!!

Cold Crisp Days

























  Seriously feels like winter now! Going to stock up on winter warmers this week! I bought these H&M pleather trousers for a bargain at £14.99! The elastic up the side is great because they give you that much needed stretch when you sit down that leather trousers just don't. Oh and I bought two colours because for that price it is just rude not too!
