It really is a problem...
Monday, September 24, 2007
I know... you've been waiting with bated breath, sitting on the edge of your chair! I'm a bit late today, but here they are...and boy, are they YUMMY...
And just LOOK at the sweetest of sweet little vehicles I have procured for us to ride around cyberspace together in.... Well..it's for YOU to ride around in and for me to push you, Doll!
Let's not waste a moment, girls....off we go!!!
YUMMY THING ONE: Exquisite Satin Clutch
YUMMY THING FIVE: Broken China Charm by The Painted Heart
This is one of Miss Dara's (Sophie Rose Designs) Christmas feather wreaths that she is making! I haven't decided what size I'm going to get yet, but I'm definitely ordering one for the holidays! Our new house is ALMOST done and I am so excited about decorating for Christmas! It's going to be pink, white, ivory and silver...YUMMY! Dara said she's going to be selling these wreaths in her etsy shoppe, but I bet you can special order them if you email her! ;) And I just adore that pink frame in the photo, as well...
Well Sweets, that's it for today! Hope you enjoyed today's treats as much as I did! Calorie-free....even better than my sugar-free/fat-free instant chocolate pudding (but it's pretty tasty, too)! Hope this is just the beginning of a "Sweet" week....
Hugs to you all...

That's it, I think. My pace has slowed and it's not by my own choice so it feels a bit uncomfortable. I am normally more like a bee, buzzing from one flower to the next, always moving, always in motion, always on its way to the "next thing." I flit from washing machine to sink to computer to toilet to wipe a bottom to changing table to computer to stove to....well you get the idea. My slower time is usually at night when the kids are in bed. I sit in front of the t.v. and embroider or glue or, if I'm lucky, eat dessert. My mind is still moving but my body gets to slow down. But this new phase is causing me to slow my body down when it's accustomed to moving, getting done, accomplishing. And there's a bit of a "rub" there as my internal pace learns to change.I feel some other changes, though. I am looking at my art differently. The ideas filling my mind are new and they are deeper somehow. They come from a more emotional place and are more spiritual in nature. I am thinking less about what people will buy and more about "putting into words," with my hands, my needle, my sewing machine and my art supplies, things that are in my head and my heart. What makes me think that this might be related to the shift in my family is that the ideas I'm mulling over that are making their way into my work are almost all connected to motherhood, the bond between sisters, creativity and the spiritual life. And anyone who knows me personally knows that those things are closest to my heart. And this shift feels good. This feels "right." This feels like I have found a door I've been looking for for a long time and am striding toward it. I'm not through it yet but I know it's the right door and I am taking steps in the direction of it.
