Lately I have been feeling a bit lost. In some kind of purgatory or like a fish on the dock just flopping around. I am not quite sure what to do about it. I come into my art room at night and do a whole lot of nothing, really. I can't tell you what I've done in there- maybe daydreaming, staring off into space, playing silly little games on the computer. Who says I have to do anything- right? Well, I guess I do. It's not like I don't do anything at all during the day with a 4 year old and almost 3 year old- I am very busy raising happy, well adjusted, self-confident, smart little girls. At night I just want more! More for me- but I just can't seem to do it lately. I haven't blogged and I haven't completed any creations. I think that maybe just like a flower- I can't be in bloom all the time. There has to be a period of rest so that I can build my energy up to bloom again. With this thought in mind I am going to stay away from the art room for about a week. Do some different things. Do somethings around the house that have been neglected. Lay down in my bed after the girls go to sleep and just do nothing. Allow my mind to wander and not fight it! I think this period of "Rest" will be good for me.
I shouldn't put that pressure on myself to be in constant bloom! It is impossible in nature so why should I force it on myself. Time to rest, gather my energies so that I may bloom once again- later- with full strength!

Until next time folks!

Almost at My First Mini-Goal!!!

When I first started blogging about 6 months ago I never felt that I would even reach 20 followers! I just kept on going and now I am at 92 followers! Once I reach 100 I am going to do some kind of give-away. Not sure exactly what yet but definately something that I have made!

Speaking of giveaways, you need to head over to Pixie Mama - This is her birthday month and she is hosting 4, yes I said 4 giveaways!!!
Until next time-

Tacky Souvenir Swap- update

A little bit ago I signed up to be involved in a Tacky Souvenir Swap over at- The Art of Staying up all Night. You know when you go on a trip and you can buy those tacky, cool, kitchy souvenirs? Well that's the object of this swap. Whom ever I pull, I will send a Florida souvenir and vice-versa. I have 2 swap partners- one from Norway and one from Texas! How stinkin' cool is that?!! I am so excited and what a great idea!

Another blog I totally love is the amazing Pixie Polly! This is her birthday month and she is having 4 awesome giveaways to celebrate! All items are handmade by her and totally cool!

Until next time-

Change is a comin'

Yesterday we went to sign Willow up for VPK. (Voluntary Pre Kindergarten) I am beginning to learn more about our school systems and districts here and it is interesting. I found out that we live in the "red" zone. Therefore there is no funding for the public schools here for the vpk program. So we had to find a private provider for Pre- K, such as a church, daycare or learning center. We did not want her going to a church school because we do not want other people teaching her about religion or spirituality. After driving around we found the perfect place! We were able to meet the teacher and she was sweet and awesome and Willow loved her too.
So in September begins a new phase in our life! I am a little nervous, not about leaving her somewhere because I felt really good about this place, but because it is a big change in routine for me. I have never been very good with change but have been working on that over the last couple of years. Now the Universe has given me a new challenge so that I may learn to accept and roll with change even better! Thanks Universe for the new opportunities you send my way so that I may change, grow and become a better person!

Until next time-
