First, thanks so much for all of the great emails, compliments and comments in regards to my artist profile with the girls over at Art to the 5th (AKA The Documented Life project) I have elected myself the 6th member of their group, the #1 fan and the future Fan Club President. I also secretly plan to join them on some tropical island someday and create the day away! Hey, gotta DREAM BIG DREAMS..right?
anyways...so a week in review around here...Something BIG is happening, well a few things are happening...First big change is that I am cleaning up as I go. That is HUGE for me because I am sorta a pile maker. No, I am a pile maker.
Example of what is on the kitchen counter right now:
Last months Oprah still in the bag it was mailed in
ONE mitten (the other one is in the truck)
and a glue gun.
(NOTE: after I finish typing this I am going to put them away, promise!)Example of what is right next to me right now:
BUT my point of this is that my pile habits are changing. It seems I am no longer just a "tidy up and continue on" person but a new "completely clean up and then start again" person.
I am going to say that this is a result of my word, TRANSFORM. It is completely new to me and I have a TON of things that need more than just tidying up, but it is part of the progress around here. I am thinning out, scaling down and organizing everything creative around here because I HAVE TOOOO MUCH STUFFFF and it is driving me crazy.
In others news, thanks so much for all of the ETSY orders!
All of the orders are being processed this weekend and shipped out on Monday! As soon as I can get things back in stock I will let you know! I am headed up to San Jose NEXT WEEKEND to teach three classes at A Work of Heart Studio and the word is there are still a few seats open so if you are in the Northern California area, please consider joining us for a whole bunch of creative (& messy) fun! and speaking of classes, I just added a FOURTH class to next months visit to Oklahoma City and all of the info from My Heart's Fancy will be emailed out and posted to their site later today!
Okay, off I go to pick up and put away another pile! Have a great FRIDAY!
