EEEEEK!! In one week it will be Christmas!!!
It seems like I've been knee deep in pretty holiday things and glitter up to my elbows for ever now!
I've really created a lot more holiday items then ever before and I have lots of new ideas for next year. Isn't it funny how when you actually are in a zone, the ideas start to flow. I think it has a lot to with just doing. One idea leads to the next, then to the next, and before you know it, you have glitter on the floor and in your hair. lol...well more than just glitter but that was a good visual for the season :)
I would also like to pause just a moment and reflect on those that will not be here with us this season, in our own live's and throughout the country with the recent events...as we all know it's been a time of a great deal of sadness and reflection. I'll be working on a project to raise money for the Newtown Memorial fund....stay tuned on that, it will be a collaborative project with several other wonderful artists that I'm honored to work with. While we can't change the world all at once, we can make a difference one person at a time...and show support for our fellow brothers and sisters when they need us. I can't imagine their grief...I feel my own well up from time to time and it has been magnified over the holidays, even to the point where I feel its hard to get up and keep moving. I think some of that has to do with just hearing the news so much. Tonight I had to shut everything off and just listen to music. It gave me strength to go back into the studio and continue to create and get back to making things as that's what I do and need to do to support my son and our household. Sigh...it's a struggle because you feel like some things are so insignificant yet at the same time, one must go on so that we can begin to heal.
