Character Traits ... #vlog #chaiwithsuzy #Suzy'sIlation #FridayReflections

I was a chubby, timid and shy child. At school I was quiet and academic and I was teased a lot. In some ways it undermined my confidence.

It takes a lot for me to take that first step into new waters. Probably at the back of my mind is the fear of being ridiculed. So when I decided to start vlogging it wasn't an overnight thing. It took months for me to take that leap of faith.

But now that I've done it, I'm truly enjoying it.

Courage is the ability to take a step without worrying about the outcome. So for those who are interested in vlogging, but are afraid to take the first step, just do it.

And now grab a cuppa and join me today on a glimpse of a little sand and surf.

Sadly we didn't see Matariki the whale but there are a lot of youtube videos that you can check out. Matariki put up a spectacular show for those lucky enough to see him - displaying all whale character traits. Matariki got his name from the Maori New Year (Matariki) as his arrival coincided with that.

My friend and I went out on two different days but didn't get to see him. I guess we were not meant to. But I hope he will return or send his friends into the beautiful waters of Wellington.

I hope you enjoyed today's video. I will post some more scenic footage in the next few weeks.

Until then, have an awesome week.

Art Journaling is happiness ... #vlog #chaiwithsuzy #Suzy'sIlation #FridayReflections

Some years ago, inspired by YouTube art journals, I decided to start art journaling.

But the journey started in December of 2015 when I walked into a bookshop and found a set of 3 mini journals that were so cute, I had to buy them. I had no idea what I would use them for but they were just too cute to resist.

One of these became my art journal.

So grab a cuppa and join me in a flip through of some of the pages ...

Unfortunately I had to use still photos because the film came up with a weird shimmer that was quite hurtful to the eyes. I tried many times but couldn't make it go away. Might be the type of paper in the journal.

But regardless, I hope you enjoyed today's vlog. Let me know in a comment, which page you liked the best. 

And if you are interested in the story mentioned in my vlog, here is the link to For I Have Talked With God

I have a lot of fun with my art journaling. Art and crafts in general always make me feel happy. 

Some other things that make me happy are:

Crafting - I love making cards

Hills and Mountains - bring me a sense of peace

Board and Card games - playing with the family is fun and relaxing

Walking in nature - always exhilarating

Chai (tea brewed the Indian way) - always relaxes me

Vlogging and Blogging - challenges me to think beyond the usual

Photography and Filming - capturing moments in time I can remember forever

Farmer's market on a nice day - fun and colourful and has a high energy buzz

Ice cream - no explanations needed :)

I have to add music, how could I not. Well that makes it 11 but does it matter?


Be happy, stay happy.

Taking Stock of Perfection #mixedmedia #morselmashups 5


One of the things we should constantly do is take stock of our beliefs, our desires, our needs as these are ever changing.

I am forever evaluating or taking stock of my understanding of perfection. Perhaps the competitive schooldays set a path for always attaining a level that inevitably is just too hard to achieve.

In trying to reach that level of perfection, you unfortunately set yourself up for failure. And in trying to reach that bar, you more often than not, forget to enjoy the journey, the learning.

My obsession with perfection ended when I started my "tryst" with arts and crafts.

So grab a cuppa and join me on the creation of Morsel Mashup 5 and what art has taught me.

What beliefs have you recently taken stock of? Share in the comments.

I've been neglecting my art work so I thought I should pick that up again. I am trying to follow the Morsel Mashups which is a mixed media challenge hosted by Cat Hand on her youtube channel.

This post was written for the #LifeThisWeek prompt Taking Stock hosted by Denyse Whelan.
