This is the logo for my latest adventure. It is really more like going public with a lifelong adventure, but there it is, none the less.
I figured out that for me, painting, creating, playing, MAKING in one way or another is far more relaxing than a counseling session, a massage, a mani/pedi, or even a shopping spree. It helps me breathe. There is space between my thoughts again when I dump some of the ideas out that are stomping their feet as they wait in line.
First, it was for gifts, for fun, for me, for here. Then it was for friends. Finally, the piles waiting were getting to be a bit much, and I happened upon the most wonderful boutique (Encore, in Shawnee, Kansas) where I am able to sell my creations/discoveries! It is a beautiful thing! I was a bit tentative about “going public” with my stuff. It got easier I guess. I even created a Facebook page and it is really quite a lot of fun!
I make a variety of things.
On this family day it seems only fitting that I share my thing about dining room tables. Perhaps kitchen tables count as well. There is something special about bringing them back to life. As I work on them, I imagine all the nice family time spent around that table, or maybe even tears shed there…head in hands. Whether it is color or stain, sanding or polish…I fill the table with wishes and hopes for many many gatherings full of love and happiness.
I guess that is a little silly.
But there it is, all the same:)
