color, color

on a gray day like today I'm going to work on some new pieces that are colorful. I think my brain is going to naturally look for it! It's icky outside! Having moved from Chicago, winter brought about plenty of gray days. I'm spoiled here with so much sunshine...when the sun disappears I find myself thinking, 'when's the sun coming back????' Maybe there is some truth to sunlight affecting one's psyche. hmmmm....either way...gotta get to work.

going, going, going

watched Valley Girl last night. Left 2 songs playing over and over in my head. Silly movie, oddly inspiring. The accident of youth paving the way to adulthood. Experiencing radical emotions for the first time and freaking out over every last one of them. That is teenage-dom. Good and bad. I'm inspired by my 80's memories of excitement, neon and spacey fashion. gone are those days, or are they?

So many things...

today is looking to be a beautiful day outside. so i'm working on planning out my day. I will finally be able to get to my Hydrangea, which I'm going to transplant in my yard. Yay! I'm still learning about gardening and I can't wait to have my garden the way I envision it. I think I'm going for a more "cottage" feel since that will not only appeal to me aesthetically, but it will also favor the style and design of our house.
I'm making more plans for my upcoming home show. I hope that it will be fun. I'm still figuring out how my giveaways/prizes etc will work. So much to do.
My birthday is coming up in a matter of weeks. I am grateful for another year.
