Thank You

My friend, Carol, and I had our Art in the Yard sale.   
It was my first time to sell my art to the open market and I will definitely be doing it again.  Our intention was to enjoy the day and allow the Universe to take care of the rest.  I am proud to say we did just that!
Our "little yard store" was in my front yard nestled between two apples tress that covered us with shade the entire day.  There was a steady gentle breeze, incense burning in the background, and a candle flickered all which created an inviting atmosphere.  It must have felt as pleasing to others because we had a steady stream of fabulous and friendly people stopping by the entire day.  Multiple friends stopped by to shop and offer their support and encouragement.  It is heart warming to know that others are helping to propel you forward.  It is my firm belief that you can not be successful alone.  One of my deepest desires has been to find a "creative community" and now it is happening.    My heart is smiling!

My friend Linda Kinnaman purchased an original piece of art titled Just Begin.  I was honored this piece spoke to her and I, thru my art, could be an encouragement to her along her path.  I created this piece at a time in my journey that I felt I wasn't making any progress.  Then it dawned on me that all I had to do was to shift my focus off of the end result onto just taking the steps forward.  All the while remembering,  "It doesn't matter how long takes or how you get there JUST BEGIN to follow the path of your dreams."

During the course of the day I often heard the comments "I am not creative" or "I could never paint or draw".  It didn't take me long to realize that I was being nudged by the Universe to speak up and to encourage others by letting them know  we all are creative.   Often times all we may need is for someone to gently guide and encourage us.  I know because I have been there.  It was a perfect time to introduce my Create Art with Abandon  classes.   It's all about letting your creative spirit out to play.
The icing on the cake was when my daughter, Tara, and the grandkids stopped by to check things out. It was pure joy to see those little kids come running into my arms all the while calling out "Grandma!!"
