The Cool World of Cute

The Cool World of Cute

I like cute maybe it's the first time seeing fairy drawings as kid or seeing my sisters then teen friends adore hello kitty. Things can be also creepy cute as in Halloween Decorations. This lens is just artwork I find cool and cute. Some of its whimsical, abstract, but I love making kawaii art. Kawaii art is Japanese for cute. It’s popular all over the world especially in the united states where I live. Cute art is a form of letting my inner nerd girl loose. Looking at cute art is also a stress buster. Kawaii isn’t the only form of whimsical art out there but it’s one of my favorites. Some of my cute art

The Peace of Listening

, art

The Peace of Listening


Listen to inspirational talks while doing mindless tasks such as putting away clothes or exercising. I thought I had no time and realized many things can be combined. I have so many things that waste time. I spend so much time not listening.

So what should I hear? What do you like to listen to


1. To the words I love you from a child

2. Listen to fun educational music

3. Listen to inspirational talks

4. Listen to the sound of rain

Creativity to improve other aspects in your life, Mother's day Nerdy Mom 2.0

Creativity to improve other aspects in your life Valerie

I read a saying posted on pinterest the other day while I was gathering quotes on gratitude doe inspiration. It said the “things you take for granted others are praying for.” I went around hugging my family. I wanted to make them feel my love for them. My gratitude. How can we feel creativity and being thankful.

1. Create fast art for yourself. It can be, sketching, knitting, digital, painting, sculpting. It doesn’t matter if you are any good. Art can be calming and also help jumpstart creativity with other aspects of your life such as business and family.

2. Don’t confuse agitation for entertainment. There are some shows I am happy to see because they are exciting with characters I care about. Even an action show or movie can be fun. I found some shows, movies and music though exciting bring me down and the adrenalin pumping plots mask poor writing. Does it waste your time? Is it fun? Do you feel bad after watching it? Do you feel it killed brain cells? Are you more argumentative after watching or listening.

3. Tell people you love them with meaning

4. Art can save you, go to museums or at least look at them online

5. Say thank you more often

My mother’s day was pretty good. I got amazing homemade cards from the kids My husband made homemade cake. I had a huge piece but there are leftovers, mmm cake. We kept mother's day small due to a move and father's day we'll be the same. One of my most popular pinterest boards is nerdy mom 2.o so I have been doing nerdy art.

I bought myself two pair of shoes today and now I have a total of two pairs of shoes. I might buy myself a pair of crocs without holes or a pair of sneakers and or chunky shoes with buckles but I don't see why I would need more than four for five pairs. I'd rather buy art or ebooks, books. Thankful List My husband, kids and the lord Art water Zazzle <> Promote your G rated zazzle, etsy or children's books, ebooks My New art

I made this I had been thinking of making a nerd mom super hero.

I had made this as a set of paper dolls for my youngest. I didn't like the skimpy dressed doll she wanted so I made this for her and she loved it. The others who write for this blog

Making Gifts For Mother's Day, Featured Mother's Day Designs

It seems like just a couple of months ago that I celebrated Mother's Day and here we are with another chance to celebrate the Mothers in our lives. I thought I would share a few craft ideas I came across to help you and your little ones create some Mother's Day gifts.

Check out this adorable tutorial for making paper flowers. These can be used to decorate a gift box or make them with a stem and put in a pretty vase for Mom.

Visit the full tutorial posted by Sara at her blog - Mr. Handsome Face

Another cute tutorial I found is on YouTube for making your own artsy card for Mom.
This tutorial is by the Illustrator Shoo Rayner and he does make it look quite easy to make. I'm sure you could use this idea and use pens, pencils, markers, color crayons or whatever you like. 

Maybe there are some Dads that want to help their little ones make a cute gift for Mom that is inspired by nature. 

You can find this tutorial at Our Big Earth.

Now for some Artsy Features to help get you even more inspired with gift ideas for Mom!
