Mandala Monday ~ Since We Last Spoke

Why helloooo!

Hi there, my dear WordPress friends! 💕

It’s been such a long time! I hope this finds you all doing and being well! I’ve had many of you on my mind off and on throughout this time I’ve been away, and have thought of posting something on numerous occasions, but frankly, I just didn’t have it in me. There’s many reasons for my absence, none of which I’ll go into right now, but today I thought what better time to pop in to say hello than on a Mandala Monday?!

I must confess, I haven’t created a whole lot of mandalas since we last spoke. I haven’t had the time nor the inspiration for as much creativity, but there’s been moments. Blessed moments, where I haven’t been on survival mode and have been able to settle into the stillness and create…

From my birthday last summer…

On top of a tambourine! A gift I received on said birthday…

Playing with sidewalk chalk.

Some keychains I painted for gifts recently. I can’t remember the last time I painted!

More sidewalk chalk shenanigans…

A work in progress from this past summer solstice. I was trying something different. Don’t look too closely at it, it’s sorta crooked oops! 🙃 I plan to paint the bottom half in greens to represent grass. We’ll see how it turns out. 🤷‍♀️

And these aren’t mandalas. But they are circular. Little dandeLIONS I made with my sweet grandchildren…

They’ve grown so much! My granddaughter is 6 and my grandson is 3. They are such a joy and blessing, I can barely contain the immense love I have for them! 💕

And this isn’t a mandala either, but I have to throw this into this post as well. I’ve recently taken on a few Swallowtail caterpillars to foster and I’m very much looking forward to it! I’ve fostered Monarchs several times in years past, but never Swallowtails. Hopefully I’ll have the chance to share some of the process with you.

Well, I better go get ready for work. I hope to drop by some of your blogs soon!

Sending you all good vibes!
