Happy Tuesday! The weather has been extremely bipolar the past few days.
It has been raining on and off all day on Monday although the temperatures went up pretty high. Today is supposed to be even warmer, they say 64 degrees. 64 degrees by the end of January in Chicago? Something ain’t right…
I spent Sunday hanging out with an old friend, Michelle, and making some DIY cards. She brought a bunch of fun crafty papers and stuff that she has has since 8th grade but never used. Lucky for us that we realized we wanted to make this a crafty night, she was going to throw the stuff out on her next visit home.
We drank some delicious Green & Black’s organic hot chocolate that I received in a goody bag from the Blogger Event I attended a while back. We made it using unsweetened almond milk and it was soo creamy and delicious. You could definitely taste that this hot chocolate was super high quality – it’s amazing!
I won’t post the finished result of the cards we made because I don’t want the people who end up receiving them to know how they will look like, sorry 😉
On Monday, my artsy-ness continued with my first time painting! I signed up for a modern painting class through a group deal I found online a few weeks ago which I mentioned in my epiphany post on my photo blog. It was really fun and definitely therapeutic.
I wouldn’t say my work was exactly wonderful artwork but it was nice to make something artistic and finally get to learn another medium of art to work with. I have been wanting to learn how to paint for a long time now and modern art has always been my favorite. The particular style we focused on today was abstract / action expressionism. We used a variety of techniques and just played around with it.
I think mine turned out a little angry and it’s like almost screaming at me. I don’t know why most of my work tends to do that. I guess that’s just the style I like.
My hands got pretty messy during the process but it was all worth it!
Afterwards, I decided to treat myself with some frozen yogurt since it was on the way back to the train.
I got Brooklyn Cheesecake and Pomegranate Tart topped with berries and ohhh myyyy godddd, soo good! Especially the cheesecake flavor, seriously knocked my socks off! It was just so good! I want it again already!
PS. I decided to make a change in plans in my 365 project on my photo blog if you wanted to read about it.
Questions for you:
What’s the last flavor of frozen yogurt you had that blew you away?
Do you know how to paint?
