Blogging Challenge

Earlier today, a friend posted about Blogtoberfest 2012 on Facebook. I know a few people who took part in it last year and they had a lot of fun with it — and learned more about themselves and their blogging  habits. I’m really tempted to sign up for it … Okay, I actually have signed…

The Gift of Giving

  We’ve all heard the old saying “It’s better to give than to receive.” Lately, I’ve been experiencing the truth of that. I had somehow gotten to a place where I wasn’t inspired to give very often – not of my money, my time, or my Self. I didn’t realize it, but I also felt…

The Times They Are A-Changing

I’m so sorry if it seems as though I’m ignoring you. I know that in the past several months, I have only posted sporadically. There was a time when I loved blogging and couldn’t wait to share my thoughts with you, my art with you. Now, it’s not that I don’t want to share myself…

Art in the Park Outdoor Art Festival

  I had the most amazing time at Art in the Park in Redlands over the week-end! Not only did I have good sales, I had a chance to catch up with some old friends and make some new ones. The guy at the booth next to mine was incredible. He and his sons make…

Wanted: Visioning/Accountability Partner!

(Picture provided by the Project on Government Oversight, under a Creative Commons License.) Let me be frank: I suck at follow-through.

Inspiration Strikes!

As anyone can tell by looking at my blog — I’ve been away from my cyber life for awhile. Actually, I’ve been away from my every day life for awhile, too. My official — and deliberately vague — story is that I’ve been dealing with a flare up of a chronic illness. If you been…

Hope For Creativity Piece

Well, Saturday morning, I sent my piece (Hope and Confidence) off to Massachusetts to be auctioned off to raise money for the youth powered organization, Hope For Creativity. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’m very excited. I hope that someone loves it enough to take it home with them. I put a…

New Classes

I’ve signed up for a couple of new online classes — you know how I love online classes! The first one I signed up for is Script School, taught by Kal Barteski. I love her script work, so I am excited to learn from her. The class started yesterday, and I didn’t get my supplies until last…

Friends: New and Old

Last Wednesday, I posted about my desire for more depth in my relationships, particularly in my female friendships. I’m totally swept away by how quickly that wish is coming true! Since last Wednesday, I have met up with two amazing women — one a new friendship, and the other a rekindling of an old friendship…

Slowly Making My Way Back …

Over the week-end, I attended Art in the Park in Redlands as an artist. I had a lot of fun meeting new people, demo’ing some of my favorite art techniques, and visiting with art-friends that I don’t see often enough. Hubby bought me a beautiful Mother’s Day present: a piece of tatting from the very…
