STEP 1: Take a vacation – get away from it all. Don’t cook. Just go somewhere lovely, get a lovely place to stay, and just relax.

STEP 2: Come home on Friday, so you have the whole weekend to relax, wash flowery sheets to get in the mood for summer, and drink tea from lovely cups.

STEP 3: Paint something low-commitment, just fun. Like collaging cool scraps onto a fun-sized canvas while eating fun-sized candy bars.

STEP 4: Peek at your backgrounds the next few mornings, until the patterns from the fun tea cups burst forth onto the canvas – VOILA!
