I have hung my daughter’s wedding gown in the gallery to honor her 15th anniversary. This dress was remade from her 2 Grandmothers gowns. The satin was my Mom’s and the Irish Lace was my husbands mothers.
We did many fittings, added a bit here and a bit there. I added all the beading and lace design work…and I can remember working on this gown for months! Each piece Hand-stitched with anticipation of my daughter’s wedding day. It was truly an amazing moment watching her walk down the aisle in a dress with so many special moments and memories stitched into it.
Her two daughters came to see it and they both exclaimed that they wanted to wear that dress someday…time will tell!
This Fri is our first gathering in the new studio for the kick off of the Summer Series Workshops!
Art, wine, munchies….should be Fun!!
This week is the Mosaic class. We will be using our family treasures and special collections in a 5×5 tile. Here are a couple of my samples.
Now…if the muggie weather would be kind enough to leave, all will be great in my world!!
I have been working on this cloth steadily. It has many, many hours of stitching time…but all very relaxing.
Isn’t it amazing … some scraps and thread and a little bit of dreaming … Starbright!
“Only from the heart
Can you touch the sky.”
Whether it is the subject of money or lack of it, or health or lack of it, or a relationship or the lack of one—always, when you feel good, you are in the place of attracting that which you are wanting.
— Abraham Hicks
I have been thinking about my creative business in a different way and learning how to build an on-line presence since Feb of 2010. I am learning that “state of mind” and intention and how we think is the key factor in having success. That being said…..it’s not easy!
There are days when it’s just not flowing. Some days I just can’t wrap my brain around the dashboards and the widgets and the…..ugh, you get the idea.
I have, however, been very productive with the hands-on part of my Artsy World. That has been flowing and I have been adding classes to my usual schedule.
Art Life is Good…the rest…well, I have begun.
I am in a place of attracting that which I want.
I’ll be taking small steps…
Think Big…Dream Big…Go for It…We Deserve it…We Can Do It!
If you can Dream It……you can Do It. This is what I’ve learned and what I continue to learn from my business coach Christine Kane and my creative business mentor Kelly Rae Roberts. They teach the technical skills necessary for building a business that is an extension of the life that you live….not a forced, stuffy, boring life; but an adventurous, fun, creative one.
To get started you must first decide what it is that you want. Not always easy. You need to get your mindset…and be determined to go for it…no matter what gets in your way.
