What can I say?

At the beach again . . . me and my new Chuck Taylor's

I have so enjoyed having my blog!  I have learned beyond measure and met so many wonderful new creative friends!  My life is richer because I have jumped into the "blog world".  I didn't even know how to put one together before March of this year!  A blog is about sharing your inner thoughts and feelings about anything and everything;  things you are passionate about and feel connected to.    I originally started my blog about knitting and weaving and painting; but I have found that it has grown into so much more.  I have been able to share my feelings about creativity, my thoughts about growing in strength and finding my inner creative girlie.  I have learned far more than I ever thought I would!  What a fun ride this has become!!

The holidays are approaching and it is so easy to get caught up in the business and hustle bustle of this life of ours.  I am determined to slow down, enjoy the holiday and take it all in.  Somewhere during this busy time, I WILL find time to dream, to paint, to create beautiful things, to read, to rest, to think and concentrate on being an artist.  An artist who spends time in her studio, spends time painting and spends time creating fun delicious things.

I want my art to matter and that is my goal for the holiday season and into this new year.  I look forward to what the future holds in store.  I know my blog will be there and I am seriously contemplating opening an Etsy shop . . . any advice from my successful friends will be appreciated!!  It is scary to jump into the unknown and to put your work out there!  I have always sold my handwovens in art galleries, not a problem, but I would like to mix my artwork with my fibers (wooo) I get the shivers just verbalizing it to you.  I have just signed up to take Marisa Anne's e-course "In the Fish Bowl" in January of 2011.  I know I am in for a treat, I have so enjoyed her other e-courses.  I know she will guide me along the path I need to follow and I always appreciate her willingness to share her experiences with so many.  I just love Marisa!  I encourage you to explore her website and take one of her e-courses, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you .  . . for reading my blog, supporting me and just being there.  I honor the artist and friend in all of you.

Just loved this girlie!
