Happy Spring 2015! Living A Creative Lifestyle

Happy Spring - Iris

This is an image of a bi-color, (purple & gold) bearded iris in my garden. It is surrounded by daisys and lush green all around. We were lucky enough to get a generous amount of rain this winter, which made everything, including the weeds spring a foot high. Spring is the most beautiful time of year for a gardner. It’s another chance to see what will grow and thrive for the coming season. The colors are amazing and the scents are delicious.

We are very excited here, our son is coming home from Berkeley tomorrow for Spring break. While cleaning up and getting ready to entertain friends tomorrow night, I looked at my studio and realized I had multiple projects going on as usual. I’m making 2 floral wreaths, 1 for me and 1 for a gift. I’m in the middle of refinishing a mirror I bought at a yard sale and replacing some drapery panels on my french doors, which need sewing. At the same time I’m working as a consultant 3-5 days a week and helping my friend who’s a costume designer source some jewelry and learn 3D design, while participating in my HOA which has it’s annual meeting next week. —As usual, I take on too much! It’s not that I can’t say no, I can and I have. I want to do all of these things.

But one thing I realized is that I live a creative lifestyle. I have to create, it’s in my DNA. No matter what else is going on in my life, I must create something every day. It’s either cooking, gardening, drawing, painting or creating something digital at my computer. I  will be posting more info on my projects, how I create them and what products I use.

Please stay tuned. I promise to post more often.
