Our Christmas Tree

This year I choose to enjoy the HOLIDAYS...I typically just suffer thru em..
But we are in a new home and I have a new outlook...

This is what a positive attitude can do for a CHRISTMAS TREE !

It is soooooooooooo beautiful !!!

Morning has broken....like the first morning..(at our new home)

So..our first morning at the new place...I opened my eyes to the most beautiful chocolate brown walls I ever seen ..I opened the blinds to reveal the biggest palm tree on the planet..


it is so large that the frons expand both of my windows ..

and our place is above my artwork garage, so its up high enough ,so its like living in a tree house on a tropical island !!

Husband had coffee ready, we went out on the little front porch (landing)..smoked our nasty cigarettes..outside , NO SMOKING IN OUR HOUSE ANYMORE !!!..

anyway...that was pleasant..then I lost my cool when I couldn't find my makeup, perfume or deodorant....
then I calmed down..cause it wasn't the end of the world..and of course then i found it !!

Husband said I'm sorry you had a rough time this morning...
I said NO, I was dumb..I am sorry I was freakin out...


Then I had my first morning to COMMUTE..ughhh..I was only 5 minutes late and found a backway that helps my avoid the traffic jams..
all in all..not to bad !!!
Now.I just want to go home and decorate !!!!!

LiTTLe WhiTe BuTTeRfLieS

LiTTLe WhiTe BuTTeRfLieS

Today I watched white packing peanuts dance in the wind.
They were swirling and twisting round and round like little tornado's

Then I looked further down the way, and they were fluttering in the air and looked like little white butterflies
When the wind would change direction , they would swoosh near my feet and then twist up and around a corner
Just to dance back towards me again

 I wondered how they knew to do this , how the wind knew I needed to see something beautiful
How discovering that if I stood still and just went with it, I could find a peace
Instead of moaning and groaning that it was too windy outside or spending my time thinking, why doesn't someone clean up that mess of packing peanuts

But instead today I watched those little white dancers made of trash and thought to myself
It is all about perspective and things I choose to think about

I choose to find peace in strange sort of way, it changed my attitude as I finished the day
Thank you Little White Butterflies ,your beautiful dance was a sweet surprise

Studio oh Studio

I finally feel at home in my little studio..
I have things were I need them to be..
I put things away so they will be there next time..
Its a gr8 feeling..who knew ?

I actually enjoy the fruits of my labor..
Its a new fruit..ORGANIZATION..
It taste's pretty darn good..

I know other folks who like to have things neat and tidy
I never understood how to be that way..or WHY to be that way...

Funny how we can still keep growing after we are "grown up" !!

breaking the rules

So I am breaking the rules...the rule of the BLOG world that says ..
you never leave your BLOG alone this long...
it's been 2 weeks or more ....for me..

I am struggling with a rebellion that plagues me in so many ways..in so many things !
.........it's one of my main struggles in life...

I had to write something today..and this is what I got !

RiBBoN My RiBBoN

RiBBoN My RiBBoN

where shall I tie you today
what will you hold together
what gift will you embellish
what kite will you fly
what ballon will you capture
before it can fly


RiBBoN My RiBBoN
who's hair will you beautify
who's shoe will you bind
which button hole will keep you
what creation will give way to you


RiBBoN My RiBBoN
why are you in a jar
why are you on the floor
was the wind blowing
were you wrapped around flowers
you don't belong in a drawer


RiBBoN My RiBBoN
I will reuse you when your done
I can pass you over to a friend
I will give you more things to do
I will even love you enough to share


RiBBoN My RiBBoN
lets start the day
lets learn how to play
lets twist and twirl
lets learn to unwind
lets make friends with that ball of twine


RiBBoN My RiBboN
heres a bell for your tail
heres a sequin or two
heres a needle and thread
heres a pillow for my head
I can tie you on there
I can put you between pages
as I read a book
I can wrap you around a little black hook


RiBBoN My RiBBoN
there are many more jars
they have buttons and lace and shiny things
but today you are the centre of my little world
you inspire me to create and write down these words


RiBBoN My RiBBoN
I thank you
you might be a simple thing
but just look at what you can do

RiBBoN My RiBboN you became a beautiful bow !

The article "Brushed Up" is my favorite, because this is the way my brain works too. I see broken things as useful.I can imagine ways to repurpose things, I was doing that kind of aRt before the word repurpose was a buzz word.LOL,
