Create Gratitude Lists For Thanksgiving

 

Making a gratitude list is a daily practice for some, but in the spirit of thanksgiving you can create your own gratitude list to celebrate the holiday. Writing a gratitude list creates an uplifting and joyous feeling, it allows us to remember that no matter how difficult life can be, we always have something to be grateful for and to be appreciative of. Gratitude lists when practiced regularly can help shape a better attitude and outlook on life because it gives us tangible evidence of our little and of our big victories.

Start your gratitude list by quietly sitting down with a writing tool and a piece of paper. Each item you are grateful for should be written out in full sentence that begins with “I’m grateful for…” or “I’m grateful that…” and ending with “because…,” then state the reasons why you are grateful for that particular person, place or thing. I find the “because” portion of the list extremely important because it requires you to think about the reasons you feel grateful. Your list can consist of specific things like the beautiful sunrise when you first awake in the morning, your job that provides you with the income to live, your sister who is always there for you or your list can consist of more abstract ideas like the ability to communicate well with others, courage and open-mindedness.

Gratitude makes it easier for us to feel less envious of what others have, it helps us live within our means and to be generous towards others. If you are ready to begin creating gratitude lists, thanksgiving is the perfect time to begin your journey to a happier and more satisfied way of life.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” – Eckhart Tolle

Happy Thanksgiving!

Amazing Exhibits: Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey

Grounds for Sculpture is 42-acre public sculpture garden located in Hamilton, New Jersey and one of my all-time favorite photography spots.  The park was created in 1984 and opened in 1992 by sculptor and founder J. Seward Johnson who hoped to bring audiences from all different backgrounds together in an informal setting to experience contemporary artwork. The park exhibits over 270 works, including sculptures by renowned artists including Clement Meadmore, Anthony Caro, Beverly Pepper, Kiki Smith, and New Jersey sculptor George Segal.

Exploring the grounds is like walking through a whole other world.  Some of the modernist sculptures are interactive and are surrounded by manicured landscapes. While a wide array of others are sculptural recreations of impressionist paintings. One of my favorite features of the park is the majestic peacocks that freely roam the grounds.

Yin Yang Furniture for Harmonious Living

 

The symbol of the yin yang originates from Chinese philosophy but has made its way to the western world in both conceptual and concrete forms.  The yin yang represents the opposite forces that are interconnected and can therefore live harmoniously among one another. The natural dualities of this world such as male and female, light and dark, fire and water are physical expressions of the yin yang concept.   These opposing forces exist because of their counterpart and in turn are not opposing forces but work together as one dynamic system. This innate truth can be brought into your life as a daily reminder by placing a material representation of this concept in your home décor. Simply put, there are endless home furnishings that are made in the form of a yin yang and will add a touch of harmony to your living space.

Autumn Treasures: Little Red Riding Hood Birthday Party Theme

 

Over the weekend I celebrated my niece’s first birthday, the theme was Little Red Riding Hood – a genius idea for an autumn themed birthday party! I thought I would mention a few of the highlights that really brought the story to life.

For the food, we had a medley of delicious treats. We made cookies that looked like acorns using peanut butter cookies and Hershey kisses. The cake itself was 4 layers and the icing that surrounded it was made to look like a wooden log.

The goody baskets for the kids looked like little picnic baskets with a white and red checkered cloth covering them.

We dressed our little red headed birthday girl in a sweet fleece red hooded outfit.

A table was set out with arts and crafts for the kids – they were able to decorate their own bear and wolf masks. We also had little red riding hood themed word search and coloring pages.

Everyone that wanted one went home with a soft cover story book copy of “Little Red Riding Hood.”

My mother built and hand-painted a face cut-out of Little Red Riding Hood and the Woodsman to take pictures with – this was fun for the kids and for the adults alike!

I always thought that in order to create a themed party every detail has to be related to theme – but after this experience I realized it only takes a few little extras to create a magical experience.  

Happy Birthday, Pablo Picasso!

 

Today marks the birthday of one of the most influential artists of the 20th century: Pablo Picasso. Picasso was born on October 25th 1881 and his artistic mediums included paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, theater sets and costumes. His art styles were versatile including realism, abstraction, cubism, neoclassicism, surrealism and expressionism.  He is also considered to be one of the artists who defined revolutionary developments in the plastic arts which involves physical manipulation of a plastic medium by molding or modeling.  Of all his artistic styles, cubism especially had a powerful impact on modern designers. Cubism breaks down an object into a set of geometric forms and then rearranges them to represent a three-dimensional image of the whole object.  Picasso used this technique while also showing multiple views of an object simultaneously.  

Les Demoiselles d'Avignon | 1907 | Cubism

Still Life with a Bottle of Rum | 1911 | Cubism

Girl with a Mandolin (Fanny Tellier) | 1910 | Cubism

Picasso left a potent mark on the minds of contemporary designers and his inspiration lives on through their artwork.  So, Happy Birthday Pablo Picasso and thank you for your contribution to modern art!
