Progress and product

Do you ever wake up and actually get out of bed and write something down....or can't fall asleep because ideas are swimming around in your head.  That's me lately.....which it feels great, like a block has been removed. A transformation is happening.  I am embracing the change and know that I am growing.  Here is what is happening in my studio lately......I love copper, something about it's richness and warmth. She is not quite done, I actually found quote that I will be adding to it.....

"If we identify with the soul we awaken the authentic self, inspire the spirit and fuel the fire of transformation" Micheal Teal


I am ready.......

Good Night :)

Delete Button......

SO much time has passed.....where do I begin.....do I even begin again?.  Is it easier to just hit the delete button and start over?  I kept this blog as a reminder of where I was......a diary as most people do.  An online diary of my art, my family and everyday stories.  I had some challenges and this place slowly drifted from my memory.  I still had pockets of creativity, but my heart was not willing to put it out there.  Call it self-protection or denial, I was stuck in fear.  I slowly came out of my fog and am beginning to see clearly again.  I let the monsters creep in and tear me down a bit.....I think all artists have these moments, questioning self-worth, questioning time and how to do it all......it was easy to still me inner voice and stop the creativity.  I think that's because I am mother and justified it.....found other things to busy my time.....

Its been way TOO LONG!!  The artist never left, the warrior never left, call it a slow healing.  I feel strong again.  Many of my tribe (family, friends and fellow artists) have held me close, encouraged me and even pushed me when I needed it.  I am so grateful for them and for the power of art. It's woven into me like a thread......my body needs to create, I love to create.

So, as the song lyric by Gene Autry goes, I am back in the saddle again......I am here!!!  I have some exciting news to share.  I have partnered up with a great local company called RELUX.  I will be teaching classes and selling my line of work there.  The universe is patient and I truly believe you meet the right people at the right time.  I learned a while back there are three reasons why you meet people.  You meet them for a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFETIME.  I have had a lot of things happen the last couple of years and with NO DOUBT this wasn't just a random thing......my calling is art, to heal and help others through this messy thing called life.

Over the past couple of years I have evolved.....my heart has changed.....my art has changed.  I am excited to share my new stuff with you.  I am excited for you to meet me again and re-introduce yourselves.  I am looking forward to what's to come......
