Vision Boards Jan 1, 2011
My friend Joyce sent out an invitation to get together to create Vision Boards on New Years Day.. Sadly the weather prevented many of us from attending, and it had to be canceled.. Julie Mitchell, who lives near me and I decided we could spend a few hours at my house cutting, tearing and pasteing. I have read about the boards for years and believe in the power of positive thinking. So maybe this year I can accomplish more by envisioning the opportunities and being open to them.
We had a fun time in my studio, with the heater on.. Out side there was a light rain, but we had our boards almost complete by the time she had to leave.. Julie is going to add some of her figures and a photo of herself.. Mine is so cluttered with cuttings I am not sure where I would put me.. Is that telling me something? Look at the bold "Yes",,, and I had said something about learning the word "No" when asked to volunteer for projects this year..
Guess I still want to do it all.. Time for another New Years Resolution.... Exercise, lose weight, stay in the studio, create and learn more on the computer... and the list goes on... Happy New Years!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
