Refreshed for 2009 and Flea Market Friday





Well... the banner and background got a whole new look. It's probably a far cry from being done. I will probably end up changing it a couple dozen times before I am satisfied.
I LOVE seeing all of the beautiful and truly
only way to describe some are
~ "Magical" ~banners of all the talented artists and web designers out there. I can only dream , enjoy, ....and keep plucking!I "pluck" away at the digital art the best I can. I am lucky that I have a sixteen year old who is extremely computer savvy (just rebuilt school's website). How many 16 year old boys do you know that would go along with their mother handing them a bunch of vintage jewelry and say "please make these into photo shop brushes for me. " He can only handle all the frou frou , sparkles, and pink, in short spurts however, before it becomes a little much for him. Although he is always very sweet about it. His stylings are much more "guy like" and contemporary. I try and gauge my moments. Love you Mason!
Ok, I changed the song just for this week only, to start out the new year. I generally do like to listen to easier more classical music especially when working. ( hope it didn't startle anyone!) But , I am partial to Nickelback on occasion, and this one spoke to me this week. Something for me to think about every day as my New Years resolution.

I
think that
I get started on a similar resolution every year . It seems so simple. To not rush through , and rush past, and make each part of your day meaning
ful and enjoy everyone in it. Each conversation whether family,friend, or a stranger. Each task , whether it is putting a cheerful note in a 7 year old's lunch, or in my work , trying to push past the comfortable barriers that make me afraid to go farther.
But , somewhere along the way especially starting probably in the fall... .

I loose it.

And I know I will , I see it coming. But, I convince myself that I will not stop practicing. And, each year when I renew my resolution maybe I will get a little farther,a little better at it . Before it's lost in the shuffle, hustle, and bustle.
And, yes Barbara if you read this ~I WILL call this weekend promise! (BFF)
