nothing but silly mayhem around me at all times ;-)
but I blast myself out of there at 6 am and get busy. creating messes and works in my studio.
every. single. day.
it's a cathartic process for me, and something I obviously need to do. I love it. it's what I am meant to do I 'spose.
I've been very prolific and busy these days. I basically gave up Facebook and most social media to focus on my work. It wasn't that hard for me to give up those things, I kind of got burnt out on them, preferring to spend time with art supplies than reading about political stuff on there anyways.
Plus life with kids has become exponentially busier with my highschooler and little elementary school child.
the summer basically blew by but ended on a lovely note with our yearly end of summer vacation trip up north.
Pink moons, best friends, lake, water, sunshine. it's so good for the soul up there. and a much needed relief from the everyday stresses of life.
We come back rested, revived and ready to start the school year with a sunny out look.
I switched Fiona to the downtown school that I actually went to when I was a child. I love it there, and am thrilled that we can walk to school every morning. I love this hill, pretending I live in San francisco for one little block :)
Jackson was lucky to win the lottery and get into one of the most desirable alternative highschools in the city, so he's downtown too. I love it.
I managed to also land myself a design client and was busy helping her decorate her house with custom paintings and handmade pillows.
I had a nice little team of creative people with me that made custom slip covers for her chairs and sofa. along with one of a kind lampshades and lamps for her living room.
it was a ton of fun and something I'd like to do more of!
(the little flower pillow was made by me) :)
it was a super fun project, and something I LOVE to do.
however once that wrapped up I was back to the studio and making things for the shop.
.......but that's o.k.
i'm lucky to have a boy like that.
yes, I am. :)
making things that make me laugh to myself.....like this one-toothed apple guy. Does this mean I am completely crazy? ha ha. probably so, but I sure am having a good ole time losing my marbles ;-)
in my saner moments, you'll find me working on one more painting that will be heading up north this weekend.
this one will be hanging in Wandawood hall on Elk lake.
escaping for the weekend by myself for some peaceful lake serenity.
or as my friend Angie likes to put it
'escaping to the healing waters of Elk lake'
yup, that's what I am up to.
creating, healing, living.
thanks for taking the time and peeking in on my life.
I'm so happy you stopped by.
