Every once in a while, we all need a pyjama day. If you don’t know what that means then… you REALLY need one 😉

So I decided to chill because, you just need to sometimes, and being in my PJ’s all day certainly does not mean I am not productive.

On the contrary, Madam!! I find that just letting my hair down (so to speak) and staying in my pj’s means I can relax a little more and not take things so seriously. I feel more free to experiment and play because at the end of the day, what I create will be good (you have to believe in yourself!).

Give it a go!

Why don’t you try it?
Spend your next Saturday or Sunday (or weekday if you’re lucky) in your pj’s, make art and see if it makes a difference to your state of mind and to what you create…

Now grab your paints and art journal and let’s get started, shall we??
