Any day now I can start filling this little (5x5) book with pics of my spring plantings....I hope.

Journey

I've been working on this mini book "Journey"




This is the first page...

The text reads; "As you travel through life..
Choose your destination well"




and the second...


Do not hurry
You will arrive soon enough

Long Time...No Post

Well...what a winter! I caught the flu in December and didn't recover until March. No kidding. Oh, I still went to work almost every day...dragging my behind all the way...but I was miserable. But now (after 4 rounds of antibiotics), I'm down to just a sinus infection...so it's all good!

And I did something remarkable....I went to Artfest!!! I almost didn't go. I was exhausted, uninspired, and defiantly not feeling creative. All I wanted to do was crawl into my bed and sleep for 100 years.

But somehow I found myself loading up my car and hitting the road for a two day drive to Port Townsend. All along I kept telling myself, "Turn around. Go home. You have way too many things to do. This is a waste of time".

I ignored myself and kept on driving.

And how happy I am that I did! I know you've all heard (or experienced), how wonderful Artfest is...and it is. It's not just (and all of) the friends I made, the fantastic teachers, the comfort of being with 600 like minded persons, the beautiful landscape, the 'happy-tired' after a long day. It's re-connecting with a part of myself I thought I had lost.

Here is the Mandala I made in Anahata's amazing class

I wish I had photos of her class...she had roses on each table!!
