For me this is a walk down Mixed Media Monday memory lane. If you are not joining us you need to!  We are LIVE every Monday (most Monday’s when I am not traveling) 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm (PST so check your local time zones) on Ustream Channel:  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/tracy-weinzapfel.  There is no cost.  Just login and create a FREE account on Ustream with a username and password.  NOTE:  Make sure to click on “Chat” tab so you can participate in the LIVE chat during Show Times.Each and every show is recorded and can be viewed at later dates here on my YouTube Channel:https://www.youtube.com/user/TraceB5.  Click “Subscribe” to my channel and you will be notified when new videos are uploaded.  Every week I provide a recap of the entire show that includes the materials used, detailed photographs and the video:www.tracyweinzapfelstudios.com/blog (also make sure to subscribe to my blog for new uploads).  This is a great opportunity to see fun techniques, try new things, see what fun products are out there and participate.

For those who wonder HERE is the paper I use each Monday to create my original artwork LIVE:


I want to thank you each and every week for sharing your creative time with me. I know how precious that is.   Enjoy your Monday and please take that “me” Creative Time!  Please make sure to stay tuned to my Calendar for my schedule!

There’s far more to life than finding someone who will want you, or getting upset over someone who won’t.  There’s a lot of important time to be spent discovering yourself without begging someone to fall in love with you along the way… and this journey doesn’t need to be empty or painful.  YOU need to fill yourself up with love – self-love – first.  Become a whole being on your own.  Go on adventures, explore your passions, wander around the city and see new sights, sit in coffee shops and read, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others who can’t pay you back, smile and have fun.  Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without someone giving it to you every second.  You can.  And once you give it to yourself, you will feel healed, and you will ultimately open yourself up to the possibility of healthy relationships with others.”
