Iced Tea Day




June 10 is Iced Tea Day! That fabulous drink that we southerners enjoy super, super sweet! It is so refreshing in the heat and so addictive once you take sip! Take some time to enjoy a glass today- perhaps while you are in the midst of a creative burst of genius!

Alive, Alive, It's Alive!!

Yes! I am still alive! What a busy few weeks it has been. I am hoping that life will start to get back to normal, although I am not sure that will be the case.

I have gotten my studio painted! All we have left to do is paint the trim and hang the new ceiling fan! We had a cookout for Memorial Day with 30 of our closest friends and family. It was a huge success.

I had been on such a high from my first sale on Etsy and since then, it has been downhill. I did not receive any feedback from my customer which I was really hoping for. I need to get back on the ball. I have several new pieces of completed work that have just been sitting there waiting for me to photograph and put online. It is my own lazy fault :(

In good news- I am still going strong on Weight Watchers and I am  19.2 pounds lighter! I am so excited and inspired to keep going and meet my goal. I feel so much better already about myself. I am not uncomfortable all the time which is great! Keeping up the hard work.

I recently also had a job offer which I am strongly considering. It would be a great opportunity for me to go down a new avenue in my career and has the potential to make a lot of money. I also would get to work from home and be my own boss. This is fantastic to me as I tend to work my best and my hardest when I am on my own and working independently. I will definitely let you all know what I decide.

I am also taking up a new hobby. I have always wanted to take a painting class. I mean, I took drawing and art history and 3D art back in college, but none of the emphasis was on painting. So I signed up to  take a class at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. The class is called Introduction to Painting and it starts tonight. Goes every Wed for 8 weeks from 7-10. I am extremely pumped about it and am hoping it will help to relax me.

Thanks for hanging in there with me and reading about my life and all the upas and downs! Please visit again soon.
