I'm working on my dining room mural again and looking around at images of birds flying in the sky so that I can add a lovely flock of blackbirds to the landscape.

I thought this was charming!

It's amazing to me how a simple blog post feels almost impossible when life pulls me in other directions. It's hard to type, hard to sit in this chair, and hard to think of anything I want to share. My camera's full, and my life even fuller, and yet I'm not moved to download either.

Maybe it's the studio? I've spent a lot of time in here since last Summer. I've been pouring everything I've got into creating a great space and wonderful projects for StudioTime. I feel excited and satisfied about that!

Now I'm focusing on my own personal, slightly neglected life, and my own creative expression. Away from the studio. I'm taking time to take care of some of the things I've been putting off. I've been so active and happy! Just to name a few things;

-I've been working on (and just about finished with) another mural. I'm aching to to do the final push on my dining room mural.

-From top to bottom I've purged my house. Every closet, drawer, shelf, nook and cranny has been purged, Goodwilled, recycled, Freecycled, or thrown. Ahhh! Even the car got an interior detail (by moi), fresh tires, new wiper blades and I even replaced a few fuses that were blown. Impressed?

-I got to the bottom of my in-box. I'm caught up on all correspondence and thank-you's, paid bills, and sent back any returns.

-I made dear Annie, Harpo, and dear Lucy matching outfits with the colorful sweatshirt fabric you see above on the beautiful Harpo.

-Now Bill and I are on our way to the Big Sur coast to revel in the winter weather for a long, long weekend. We have Scrabble, wool slippers, our favorite books and each other.

-Life is so sweet.
