Art is powerful, free flowing and from the heart. It can send a powerful message if you open your eyes and your mind.

I stumbled upon this artist David Garibaldi, he is crafty and free flowing with his paintbrush. He tries to share his art all over the world. To bring people together of every race and language. With his art you do not need to speak the language to know what it means.

His work is very inspiring. Check him out and be inspired to create! http://garibaldiarts.com/

All the best,

This morning while on the public transit, this photo was on the front page. It was about a girl who was throwing puppies into a river. I watched the video and was just shocked at her actions. The poor little pups were crying and she just laughed and tossed.

How do you feel about this? Do you think the world is taking this to seriously? Are we giving animals more rights then they should have? Let me know what you think.

Here is a link to the video. (caution: animal cruelty)

How many of us remember our 21st b-day (who have already celebrated one)? Was is it the best night of your life? Do you regret it?

My 21st b-day, I worked…a closing shift at that. But I got to celebrate it with my friends and enjoy a nasty drink, which I have never ordered again. Very low key and spent with my closets friends.

Do you wish that you could have spent your 21st b-day enjoying it for 21 days doing someone amazing things? Well one wonderful young woman I know did. You might remember her from the Artist of the week on here or showcased in the first issue of HiddenYou e-zine. Her name is Nikki Yeager, and she is doing “21 days of my 21st”.

Here is just a snip-it of what she has in store for herself…

  1. Learn to skateboard
  2. Skeet shooting
  3. Learn to surf.
  4. Jetski.
  5. Skydive.
  6. Brazillian Wax.
  7. Try Kambucha and Aloe tea.
  8. Ride in a helicopter.
  9. Be on tv.
  10. Fly a plane.

Please go to her website http://www.nikkiyeager.com/apps/blog/ and read about her adventures and check out the videos. Hey if you want to help her out with some of her goals leave her some love on her page.

She inspired me to want to try to do something cool for my bday!

Recently you will see in advertisement or in some sort of design project people are using torn paper edges.

I found a website that has several free torn paper edges. Check it out and explore the possibilities of using these brushes.

Maybe if you are having a creative block this can help you out, by trying something new.

    • Asma: wonderful share thanks it will help me with photoshop
    • Gina: It's disgusting. I won't even watch the video... I'd likely be scarred. She should be tracked down and prosecuted. Make an example of her. She loo
    • Shari: So pretty and inspirational! I LOVE the idea of living and dreaming in color - sometimes that vibrancy can truly light up the world :-)
