I am so happy that I get to take part in the Flying Sisters Blog Hop on the third Thursday of every month! At the end of this post you will be given the link to another wonderful blog post by another creative friend of mine, then at the end of hers will be another link, then at the end of hers.... and so on... until you get all the way back to my blog! We all blog on the same topic... It is a Blog Circle.
This months topic is: "New Beginnings"
Simplification ~ Appreciation ~ Creativity ~ Laughter ~ Organization ~ Balance ~ Love
This year for me is truly a new beginning! More so than any other time really. This new beginning is there for me to define. For me it is a time to REALLY de~clutter, simplify our household organizational systems, and build a present and a future that pays attention to the practical AND the magical aspects of a creative life. When I meet my practical simplified responsibilities, I can then "play" and build my creative present and future. New beginnings for me and so many of my creative friends will be about BALANCE.
Rather than define it for you for a lengthy time... I am going to spend that time organizing our office papers. I will also continue carving out my little artist's creative space. : )
Before that I have to report on a SIMPLE Artist Date (as found in book The Artist's Way) that I had recently after an appointment. I was across town and remembered there was a little Art Store right near there. I stopped in and LOVED WHAT I FOUND... I recently was not able to get the ENTIRE ZILLION DOLLAR set of a bazillion Caran d'Ache Neocolor Artists' Crayons
...but at this lovely little art store they sold them individually and I was able to get THESE few Caran d'Ache Neocolor Artists' Crayons in my favorite colors... it was like picking flowers in a field. Here is to the simple things in life!!!!!:
