In life, you never know where or when (or how) inspiration will strike. Early this year I was introduced to a new hobby by my 3-year-old niece: watercolor painting. What started out as a fun afternoon activity of painting Peppa Pig, has since become an *cough obsession cough*... exciting new creative outlet.
In true Gracie-fashion I went from casually painting a couple of cute wreaths to embarking on illustrating a children's book. (The story is about bunnies and a dragon and comes highly recommended by the aforementioned 3-year-old).
I also tried my hand at greeting cards..
And my dog…
While I'm not planning to ditch music for painting anytime soon, I have to say it's been pretty exciting to do something so different from what I'm used to.
So, next time you have to babysit, PAY ATTENTION. You may find your new favorite hobby.
