Spring cleaning in the summer....

OK, it's just time. I just spent 5 hours cleaning my little craft room. Ugh! I just can't believe the amount of stuff I have.  I wish I could get rid of more, but i just don't have it in me yet.

Here I am

I know I have been missing in action, but I am back.  I have been a little busy with visiting family and a zillion other things.  I wanted to share my favorite space with you today.  It started with a new quilt that I made, and ended with a new bedroom. Its my first feminine bedroom I have had in over 20 years.  I figured with the new me, I deserved a new place to rest, renew, and be me. 
Love, Me

Proud Mama

My first baby graduated from High School on friday.  We are so proud of him! What a great young man.  We had a huge party for him on Saturday.  Lots of family and friends came to celebrate his success.  The weather cooperated and we had tons of fun.
Our daughter Becca is congratulating her big brother on his job well done.  These two love each other so very much.
This is my mom and my sister.  Aren't they beautiful?

Where will you be in one year?

Do you know where you will be by this time next year?  I can tell you where I wanted to be, and I am doing it. I am 9 months into my weight loss journey and still going strong.  I feel so much better, healthier, and revived.  It is as though I have been struggling so hard for the last 20 years to roll a bolder up a mountain, and this last year I hit the top.  As I exercised everyday, ate smaller portions, and healthier food the bolder crested this mountain.  Once over the top it rolls so much easier down the hill.  I feel like chasing it down the mountain now.  It gets easier everyday. 

Fill you life with love, you deserve it.  I post this today as a reminder to myself where I have been, and how strong I am. I hope it inspires a least one person to go for what you want. Peel back those layers and find the real you.  The you who has gifts and talents to share with the world.

Love, Me

Learning to let go and find my creativity

I believe that creativity is in us all.  It is suppressed by our ego and our fear of failure.  I am learning everyday how to free myself from my own judgement.  I am perfect just the way I am and everything I need to live a wonderful life is in me, just waiting to be free.

This piece is about my confidence and how it is growing and stretching.  Reaching for a height unseen.  If there is something I want to do, I do it. Something I want to learn, I learn it.  This is my suggestion to you all.  Don't wait for life to happen, make it happen.  Don't be afraid to try, whats the worst that can happen?  You might learn something.

Love, Me

Someone Special

Today has been a great day!  I spent it creating a special painting for someone I love, read my new magazine "Where Women Create", and had some time with the kids. I hope you found some joy in your day.
