According to Hans Christian Anderson, the devils servants made a magic mirror, if you held the mirror up to anything it did not show what was beautiful and good, it only reflected back the worst in anything. Laughing with glee the devil and his demons decided to fly the mirror up to heaven to trick the angels, but as they rose through the air the mirror started to tremble, the higher they flew the more it vibrated until suddenly the mirror erupted into a shower of glittering splinters that slowly drifted down to earth. If one of the splinters landed on a person it would burrow into them freezing their hearts until all they could see was evil, misery and despair, only the love and tears of a caring person could melt the hearts of those afflicted. It seems that even though many years have passed since "the snow queen" was penned, there are still many splinters of that evil mirror swirling around in the atmosphere, too many of us are still just seeing the worst in people, let's try to thaw the ice and see the potential in people, because given the chance and a little support, most people will surprise you with their warmth rather than their ice #aravish2o ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️ 🐝#creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creativelysquared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #minimalism42#jj_texttypographical

I only planted one cucumber, I'm the only one at home who likes it, I built it a bamboo frame and placed it in out little lean-to greenhouse. I have nurtured this vine, I went out in the fields gloved to get her nettles to feed it with, the bags of stinging weeds steeped in water to make an evil smelling concoction. I conscientiously diluted the liquor and ladled it over the little cucumber, the vine rewarded me by climbing rampantly up my home made frame, massive hairy leaves spilling out of the greenhouse, yellow flowers erupting every few inches from the twining stem, soon the green gourds started to swell, I checked them daily in anticipation, and then suddenly I have a dozen cucumbers, having given them to my friends and family, and with the vine still producing I have had to look for more inventive ways to enjoy cucumber #aravisfantasyfruitnveg 🥒🐢🥒🐢🥒🐢🥒🐢🥒🐢🥒🐢 🐝#creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creativelysquared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #minimalism42 #cucumber

These "greens" made me think of trees in a forest, now as there is a very special forest called "the hundred acre wood" not very far from here, I thought a little tribute to s big part of my childhood was in order, you will notice that as I am English, Winnie the Pooh, for me, is E H Shepherd not Walt Disney #jj_forum_1971 💚💚💚💚💚💚 🐝#creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creativelysquared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #minimalism42 #aravisfantasyfruitnveg

I split up with my dishwasher a few years back, it was just too needy. It wanted special tablets or gels, it demanded rinse aid, it even wanted large quantities of rock salt. I tolerated its demands for years, i stacked things in the way it liked, I put them away as soon as they were dry, but soon its sulks became too much, it clouded the glasses, it left bits of food on the casserole dishes, “you're supposed to rinse them first “ it sulked, and when it flicked two of my good knives onto its heating element, and melted the handles, I am sure it was pure spite. “Enough” i said, now when I fill the sink once a day, all it wants is a little liquid and a cloth, and occasionally, a beautiful stainless steel scouring flower. the big space where the dishwasher sat now houses a new cupboard, and in the cupboard sits a sulking and temperamental microwave, I fear it will go the same way as its predecessor #ru_flower 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 🐝#creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creativelysquared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #minimalism42 #jj_forum_1969 #numberof3

There is something about the type of "artificial intelligence" that takes everything it knows about us as consumers to work out what we want, that always seems to get it subtly wrong. So just because I recently replaced my bike mirrors doesn't mean that I want eBay to offer me motorcycle mirrors every day, (I don't collect them) and when Instagram shows me a hundred pictures of nail varnish, it's not that I don't paint my nails, just not in the usual way. #aravishand #fromwhereistand 👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽💅🏻👣🌗👣💅🏻👣🌗👣💅🏻👣🌗💅🏻 🐝#creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creativelysquared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #minimalism42 #jj_forum_1970

All children are artists, they don't care about being good enough, they just draw from instinct. The pure pleasure of creating, they will hold up their work proudly "look what I drew" they announce. When is it that we lose that pleasure in play, when do we decide that doodling is a waste of time, of that only the most talented have reason to draw, why should life be just about the serious, why should "art" be serious, let's remember how we felt as children, let's have fun and pick up our pencils and draw. #jj_forum_1969

There is s big pencil sharpener clamped to the teachers desk, you have to pinch two levers together and pull out a toothed clamp before you insert the pencil, the clamp grips the pencil pulling it taut against the serrated cutting wheels. The body of the sharpener contain the cutting wheels, bladed drums that grind around the pencil with industrial ferocity. These blades are driven by a handle, below which sits a clear receptacle for the pencil shavings. I love this machine, i deliberately push down hard as I write until "crack" my lead snaps puncturing the page, i shoot up my hand "miss, I need to sharpen my pencil" "quickly now" she frown at me. I clamp my pencil into the aperture and start to wind the handle, I crank the handle up, faster and faster, this is the game, how long can I wind before Miss notices and stops me, my pencil is being pulled into the the whirring blades, shavings falling faster and fasted into the box below, I am grinning with glee now, if I could get away with it, i would keep winding until my pencil was nothing but a stub, just for the joy of watching the knives spin and the shavings fly, my fun is interrupted "that's enough young lady" the teacher booms, I withdraw my pencil, impossibly sharp but significantly shortened, the only disadvantage of the industrial pencil sharpener is the lack of fluted wooden frills that the little sharpeners in our pencil cases provided. ✏️✏️✏️✏️✏️✏️✏️✏️✏️✏️✏️ 🐝#creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creativelysquared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #minimalism42 #JJ_Forum_1962
