a New Look.......

the Other day I was looking into making a book out of the pictures and content from my blog.  The more I looked over all the entries I had made over the years and the things I had written about,  it made me sad peering into the life I left behind.  It also became clear that I needed to start something new, and approach it with a different outlook and perspective. So I thought I would Start a new blog documenting my new life that I've set out to claim for myself. 
 It's still me,  but it's an adventure waiting to unfold.  Sometimes you have to start out small,  with simple little changes.  So that's just what I'm doing.  I hope you'll like it.  you can still go over to the old blog,  it will still be up and running,  but I think I will just be posting over here from now on.
So with this new blog,  I will start off sharing pictures of my apartment overhaul I did last weekend.
I completely turned the place upside down and reversed my living/sleeping spaces.
  It's those little things that sometimes offer a fresh perspective,  and give you a new outlook,  or inspire you to create new things in a fresh space.

My living room is now my bedroom.  it has more room,  and feels more restful, even though my head literally is parked next to a window over looking my downtown street.

my former bedroom is now the living room,  and feels so cozy.  plus it's right off the kitchen,  so it flows better.

my bedroom is bright and sunny :)

fun rearranging all of my little collections and treasures......

makin' it cozy.

 I've been sleeping better here too,  which in turn has made me become more productive this week.....I managed to make a few new paintings,  and pieces. all in all it was a positive change.
little baby steps,  here and there.  :)
