today is friday and i don't know where the week went.
here's peek into one of my little books. these are not my sketchbooks, they are smaller books filled with the scraps i find on the studio floor during a clean-up. some bits are too precious to be thrown away, so they are saved in boxes and books like this one above. so yes, since i just had a big clean up in the studio, i have more books like this one that are going to be filled and shared soon.
stephanie reminded me that i wrote about this process in the interview you can read here.
i realized that i the foggy brain feeling i have had lately is due to feeling completely overwhelmed. not to complain of course, but you know how they say "when i rains, it pours" ??? well, i feel like i have a little rain cloud over my head!
blasted birds fly away in the car this afternoon and drove around in the springtime sun. then this song came on, and well, this is how it felt. you said it so well kelly rae! things are shifting, in a good way.
we may have found new home, not sure yet, but fingers are crossed. you see, we are currently in between homes, jobs and lives. all of my belongings are in boxes, most of our stuff is in a storage unit in another state and my studio is what you may call a make shifty sort of one at the moment. you think this could have something to do with #3?!
loving the lilacs, leafy trees and warm spring breezes. working on appreciating the little things in life, taking it day by day and trying to remember to breathe. (yes, i do have to stop and remember to calmly do that once and a while)
exactly one year ago today, this happened. to say that i did a happy dance would be a complete understatement. BIG hugs to lucie who wrote to holly. i'm so happy that our first little correspondences have turned into friendships. this blogging world is quiet magical if i do say so myself.
so that's my 8 for today. i have so many more...
what's today like for you?
wishing you a happy weekend! we're heading to our favorite little "gorges" town for a few days and then i'll be back on a regular schedule. as i type this, i am already planning next week's blog posts. how's about another sketchbook peek?! i'm excited for that. : )
i'll also share some more news and a couple of other things to look forward to.
until then, xo, *s
