Bling, Broken Bones and Dreaming

Those of you that regularly read my blog know how very much I love nature, especially birds.
We have a topiary beside our side entrance door that houses a tiny bird nest.
We've already had one family move in and move out this year - complete with new family members!
Well, some birds must not mind moving in to a "previously lived in" nest
because we have a new couple in there now!
I peeked into it the other day and noticed they had been doing a little redecorating...
I snapped a quick photo of the sparkly fibers in the new digs.
It's a piece of fiber that I had hung out in one of the plants nearby for the birds to use in their nest building.
How cool is that?!

I wanted to thank everyone for their inquiries into my husbands well being.
He broke his lower left leg (spiral fracture left fibula) a week ago on Saturday.
He is doing better (pain wise) but still feels the pain that goes along with mobility issues...
especially hard for him too. He is one of those people that is Always on the go.
Constantly working.
So, it's been tough to find a balance around here the past week or so.
But, he is on the mend - so thanks for your concern!

I have been able to spend more time in the studio the past couple of days.
I've almost got another new piece of mixed media art ready!
I usually make a new piece, then get asked to teach classes on it.
Then I spend weeks making step outs,
writing instructions, gathering materials and supplies...
I don't always have a lot of time to continue creating different pieces of work.
I decided that I am going to focus on creating a larger body of work.
I want to begin offering my art work and prints for sale.
I love teaching and am not going to stop doing that
but I want to be able to share my work in other ways too.

I would love to be able to teach to a larger audience.
I'd love to have a studio space large enough to invite people in to it.
I believe that there is a space out there - waiting on me.
One with a really inspirational location, tons of storage space and aglow with natural light.
Isn't it fun to dream about what you'd love to be doing, dreaming about what you want to happen in your life?
It's a very healthy thing to do also.
I believe that you have to allow The Universe to hear your dream...
shout them out!
Share them with your family and friends.
Email me with them if you'd like to.

And then put in some work on those dreams.
Make them happen.

If you knew you wouldn't fail,
what would you do?

Glad to hear your husband is on the mend. How cool to know that birds recycle nests. I look forward to seeing your new project.

I am a believer of shouting out to the Universe your dreams!!!! Something about speaking it, wills it to happen, puts you in motion. I am pondering your challenge....if I knew I wouldn't fail, what would I do??? Will get back to you on that.
