a mighty big thanks

A belated, ginormous thank you to all who came out to the Coutry Living Fair in Ohio!
It was so inspiring meeting you all....I do wish I could thank you all by personally...but, you know who you are!
Especially those who traveled from so far.
It was a memorable weekend of beautiful shiny treasures and beautiful shiny people!

fear not change

So the hardest thing to do is change.
Self , surroundings and daily habits envelop us until we are trapped in our own cyclical carnival ride.....left to expound "stop the world, I wanna get off!".
Another one of my favorite sayings...."when you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.".
I don't know who to credit it's quite profound whoever you are.

Why oh why is it so easy to fall into habits....but so hard to break them?
What we eat, how we dress even our hairdo's....for example the need for the dreaded term "mullet". I think we all know someone that fits that shoe.
I myself, still and will always own a plethora of scrunchies and Palin-like hair clips.

If you were thinking I was going somewhere awe inspiring and life changing with this I'm sorry to disappoint. That's pretty much all I've got.

Thou, what really got me on this mental thread was my studio.
I had been standing in the same stationary spot recklessly dribbling paint for so long that there was a splatter pattern speckling the floor.
Comfortable as I was...I decided I needed to shake things up a bit.....fling myself off the merry-go-round.

So a studio change was in order.
Just a little shifting of material hodge-podge....but still...change is change.
Ok, so I didn't exactly set the world on fire or solve world hunger.
But this was a huge breakthrough for me...
Maybe hard to surmise from the photos...but I created a "sitting" area with a separate work area behind.
Alright, maybe this is as impressive as watching a small child display their mastery of a somersault (for the 100 time) ...
My solo applause with the sound of crickets will have to do.
