The holiday season is upon us and it’s time to deck the halls. One thing I am excited about, is getting my bar hostess ready. My theme this year is glamour & drama. My colors for the season are silver & gold.
My art has allowed me to embark on a journey of self discovery and growth that I could not have imagined. It has made me challenge personal boundaries and express my creativity in such an amazing way.
I want to thank every person (too many to name) who has attended my shows, bought an art piece, shared my art with your friends, and commented on my social media posts. The love you have shown me is real and deeply appreciated. Thank you for allowing me to share my artistic expression with you.
I am truly Grateful!

Trust your strengthens, gifts, talents and abilities. When you struggle or waiver in your truth, stop and challenge those negative thoughts. Why are you second guessing yourself, and does that doubt hold up to your truth? Write down your discoveries and begin to reframe internal messages. You will find that what’s bugging you can’t hold a candle to your accomplishments. Trust yourself and continue to remind yourself why you are so great. It’s a daily practice. I challenge you!
“When there’s ever a breakthrough, a true breakthrough, you can go back and find a time period when the consensus was ‘well, that’s nonsense!’ so what that means is that a true creative researcher has to have confidence in nonsense.”~~Burt Rutan

Embracing your creative process is very difficult. When you are waiting for inspiration, you feel stressed. When you are creative and working, you feel elated. Through it all creatives are always questioning their process. It can drive you mad!
I have decided to embrace my process. I now enjoy my dry spells as well my creative spurts. It all serves my Creative Process, so I must take it all in stride and remain grateful.

We first learned that my daughter had severe food allergies in September 2013. We were totally overwhelmed when we met with the nutritionist and learned of all of the foods we had to eliminate from her diet. This would mean a complete changed in our daily lives, no eating out, packing lunch for school, and basically traveling around with meals on the ready for her. It was a tough transition. Since then we have added back dairy, eggs, and fish to her diet with great success. We still have not learned what the culprit is, but wheat/gluten remains a big no-no. Wheat/Gluten is in everything such as, condiments, snack foods, pasta, baked goods, etc.
As you can imagine, for a kid this could be devastating. As difficult as this time has been, we have gained an unexpected huge blessing. My daughter has discovered a love of cooking. She has become quite the gluten-free chef. She has prepared turkey meatballs, chicken and broccoli stir-fry, oatmeal pancakes, oatmeal muffins, and she can scramble a mean egg. Let me tell you I am thoroughly impressed with her persistence and her resilience in the face of adversity. She has mastered reading labels and knows what foods she can and cannot have. Now she is collecting cooking magazines and learning how to swap the ingredients for foods that meet her dietary needs. I am ultimately blessed that we learned about her condition at this age. She is 11 years old and learning life-lessons and skills that she can carry with her the rest of her life.
So the next time you are faced with adversity, don’t become overwhelmed and wrecked with fear. If you pause and wait patiently, you may just discover that what you fear is really a Blessing In Disguise.
