A little nervous, but here I am . . .

Okay, I am the new kid on the blog block, feeling a little nervous, more excited and really happy to be here! My blog is in birthing mode, but I wanted to just get out here, and like in life, I will refine as I go. Can you relate? It's about playing, learning something new, taking risks and trusting in the journey. My friends who have been hearing me say, "I want to create a blog this year" will be happy I have actually done so. Me too!!

A little about me, more will be revealed as my blog grows and I get braver. I am a mixed media artist, living in southern California with my husband of 30 years and our 3 kitties. I am blessed with wonderful friends and a supportive family. I play, teach and am a hoarder of art books and magazines. I love the question, "What happens if . . ."

I love rocks, metal ( rusted is better), glass, fiber, paper and my little art room in the back. I am learning to trust in my own art style. I am happy to keep learning how to release the art muse who resides in me. My favorite start to the day: sleep in a little, get that first cup of coffee, shuffle off to the little art room in the back, read something inspirational for the day, pick up a piece of paper, paint brush or piece of metal and see what happens. Ahhh, life is good.

Please come by often and say hi! I am so happy to be here!

Yay you! Felicitations!

The first step is the only gets better from here.

As I read your first post, this quote from Anaïs Nin is what came to mind:

...and the time came
when the risk
to remain in a tight bud
was more painful
than the risk
it took to bloom.

And so it is with a birthing process...bon courage!

Love to you from France,
