Be Happy and Content

As I prepare to go to see family in Virginia, I am reminded of how quickly Life moves along. The days move into weeks into months into years. Before you realize it , ten years have passed; children have grown, loved ones have passed from this world, people have come and gone from our lives.

Over the last several years I have been trying to steer my thoughts (they so "naturally" go negative) and my outlook on life and relationships. Sometimes I have to try REALLY hard to be positive, but I always want to end up there (in Positive Land) no matter how long it takes to get there. I am slowly taking control of my own life and responsibility for my own choices and decisions, when for so many years I gave that away.

I want my loved ones to remember that I was happy and content. That would be my legacy. (and my art of course)

Open Door Day

first day open at the studio...
I pulled my usual:
camera there.. then forgot to take pictures.
ggaaa.

got a few photos, but when it got busy (and it did get busy-yay)
then I was socializing and failed to take pics.
I didn't even get a pic of Valentine who has been SO supportive all this month
and she brought good eats and flowers...
Kate brought flowers too and I have no pic of her either!
and THEN I said I'd be open until 9:00 but due to the early arrival of my Little Visitor
I ended up leaving too soon and missed Autumn and Andrew who have been SO helpful.
sorry guys.
my Little Visitor






however I think it was a success. brought attention to people who didn't know I was there before.
people who have been "watching" the progression on facebook got to see it .
I was pleased with how much I got done, although there is still more to go.

now I can concentrate on creating and giving classes so others can create!!
see previous post for classes already in place:
Creativity Journals/ Journey Journals on Sunday evenings
