 This is Karen’s painting in progress from our GNA…She has been saving a hornets nest for the longest time and finally used it in her acrylic painting for texture and fun.  She was delighted when the paint started coming through the nest in places and showed up a really cool pattern in the layers of the nest.  We thought it looked like seaweed when she was done…what do you think?

I was thinking more about how I just enjoy the the process of creating that I blogged about last night.  I think it’s a pretty good rule of life to live by, too – I want to really enjoy the process of living the days and not worry so much about the end result.  I want to enjoy the days of my life without wondering how it’s all going to turn out.  I never know with my paintings or my jewelry, why should I know with my life?  It always seems to turn out exactly the way it’s supposed to, even if I don’t know where I’m going ahead of time.

I Love You Mom

This bead collage was created out of loose beads lying on my beading table by my son as a surprise for me.  It says “I Love you, Mom”.   Awwwwwwww!!

 

Any day now.  It’s coming soon!  My graphic/web designer is hard at work getting my site ready to go up.  I am so excited!  It’s been a long journey – longer than I initially planned on.  There were so many decisions to be made.  I have spent many sleepless nights agonizing over every detail…wanting to get it just right.  I finally got to the point where I knew I just had to leap and figure it all out on the way down.  Hopefully that leap will lead to Internet opportunities for business growth.

I’ve got all sorts of plans.  Thinking of things to do is the easy part.  Implementing them is hard.

It’s scary, also, because putting my jewelry pieces out there is a risk.  Will people like them?  It is such a personal thing – my “babies” are being put on display and are being judged!  What will the world think?

We will soon find out…I’ll keep you posted!
