I have chosen “Cheerfully Create in 2018” as my tagline this year. Of course it only works if when you say it you say two thousand one eight and not two thousand eighteen. But that is just my little hang up.
I am blessed enough to be able to create on a daily basis and to travel and experience amazing art adventures if I want — and I want. So here we go.
There is an Art Adventure, or two, that I have planned in the next 60 days and through Instagram , twitter and this blog I am so thrilled to take you along. Of course I will be art journaling along the way and sharing it all.
First, I will attend a Donna Downey workshop in March. It is designed to help me in my efforts to establish a working art studio and classroom/retail space. After Donna Downey I will also be going to ….. wait for it…… Ireland at the end of March and into April.
In Ireland I will have the opportunity to learn about several of the handcrafts of the Irish people, as well as their culture, and I am truly excited to see the beautiful scenery there. I will be traveling with my three favorite broads and you know that is gonna give me some good stories. Our last trip was a hoot and it certainly seemed like you all enjoyed reading about it. The Ireland trip is a tour through Craft Tours and Mr. Jim West. I am not sure if we will be part of the episodes on his show but anything is possible.
As I write this I am eating those candy heart things that are already out for valentine’s day and seriously thinking of cracking open another diet coke to help wash them down. Seriously how old are these candies that they sell for valentine’s day?? I may lose a tooth here!!!
Here is to cheerfully creating imperfect art in 2018. Come Along!!
