Talent Tuesday

While scrolling through my Instagram feed this morning, Dwight Howard's post caught my attention.

Every morning when I wake up, I have a million and one things running through my mind. Despite the usual cooking, cleaning, laundry, errands etc, blogging is one of those million things that run through my mind every. single. day. But here's the thing- if I don't sit in front of the computer screen immediately after breakfast, blogging is a no-go for that day. So thank you Dwight Howard for that extra push that I needed!

Lucky for me I got the artistic gene in my family and so naturally I have always been fond of all things artsy and crafty. Besides, it's extremely soothing and relaxing. It's almost like you paint all your worries away on a blank canvas, lol. Just recently I decided to pick the paintbrush back up and paint arabic calligraphy. I felt like I was a bit rusty because I hadn't painted in a while (especially any form of calligraphy) but once I was done with the painting, I was blown away by all the love my painting received from my family and friends. Hubs told me that I need to start selling my talent- but I don't know...I feel like I would have a hard time parting ways with something I painted, haa! But it's not like I display any of my artwork at home either. Would you consider this a first world problem? I think so! honor of Talent Tuesday, I would like to showcase some of my hidden talents not many people know about :)

Is it safe to add artsy and crafty under my "about me" section? ;)

Happy Tuesday, folks!
