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.

I have truly missed your posts, but boy, you sure have been busy with early spring cleaning and decorative projects. Big Sur should be a blast. Have fun!

Your life is full and good...that makes me so happy. Enjoy Big Sur and all the sights and sounds. I'm in awe of your clean up!

Blogging is supposed to be fun and enjoyable and sometimes other things take precedence as they should. In due time it will come around and be there for you. You sound so happy that it seems your life is just as it should be in all its various expressions. I would love to clean out my closets and drawers. That would be such a great feeling.

Have fun in Big Sur. It is so beautiful there.

That's so neat about your organization. I have been working on mine as well. I got a little sidetracked last week with the weather and having a cold, but I hope to get more done this week.

I am happy that your studio is going well for you.

I hope your vacation is wonderful even with the rain.

Harpo reminds me of a dog out of The Wizard of Oz. Not ToTo. Is she cute? She sure is!

Can't wait to see any posts on Big Sur. I LOVE it there. I hope you didn't experience any storm weather while along the coast. That's wonderful that there seems to be an abundance of good things happening in your life. Enjoy!!!
