ChakrART FREE online Workshop that is hosted by the lovely Simona from Timeless Rituals has started last week.

I made and art journal and I included red for the root chakra. Release was one of the words that came to me at the last exercise with the red circle. Go and see the workshop to find out what I'm talking about. :) Below is the video.

Artsyville Tuesday's list for this week is favorite childhood games. Do you know how difficult it is to translate these games into English? :) I mean, I don't even know if that is their real name in my own language let alone in any other.
  • Jumping rope - but just plain jumping, no exciting tricks from me
  • Dodge ball - or something to that effect, we had two different games, to translate it loosely we called it Between two fires and Flies
  • Hopscotch - we just made up the number and shape of the squares, there was no universal rule about how many numbers or if you could skip in between
  • card games - unfortunately I have no idea how you call them in English but we had many like UNO, Črni Peter (Black Peter), Schnapsen and many more adult type of card games that my Dad taught me
  • board games - Man, don't get angry was my favorite, I totally despised Monopoly, even to this day you cannot make me play it
  • Tic-tac-toe - need I say more
  • Hangman - we've done this in school a lot in recess
  • clapping games - there were so many and we very likely played them wrong or just made them up as we went along
  • Rubber twist or Chinese jump rope - I think that's how it's translated, we called it gummi twist
  • Rollerskating - does that count?
  • Cat's cradle - or some version of it, I found this on internet because I don't even know how we called it in my language :)))
  • Connect 4 - or translated 4 in a row
  • Marbles - I used to collect them
  • Tapping or flipping trading cards - we had trading cards that you put face down on the ground and your opponent would tap them with a hand trying to flip them over as many as they could with one tap. The ones that flipped were theirs to keep.
I think those are my favorite. I have several more but I don't feel like googling for translation. :)
