If you asked my sisters, they would tell you that I am brave... That I am not afraid to take risks...but I am..when it comes to certain things. I guess it is just all in my mind. I always seem to come out on top. My sister Susie always tells me I am lucky. I don't like to use the word lucky. I just happen to take advantage of opportunities that come my way. Some work and others don't and I have learned ALOT of hard lessons on the way. I have waited along time to start my journey and I am not stopping now. I will follow Nina's advice and I will work hard and be patient. Patience being the most difficult of all. I have little patience...I want it all NOW. That is why I started this blog, to journal about my progress in becoming a full time artist. Here's to another step.

So then I came home and starting organizing my beads like I was supposed to yesterday until I got side tracked. That always seems to happen to me. It is amazing how much stuff you don't realize you have until you put it all together. I love my Swarovski crystals....so shiny and bright.
I am trying to reorganize my room because the layout, which can be seen in an older post, is not working for me. I need to find what is convenient for me. I am a girl of convenience.
I didn't work on my Blue Cruise Journal this weekend. Time got away from me and I just couldn't get going on it. I still haven't decided which direction to take so that is probably my problem. I should just do 2 of them. One in each style I am trying to combine! I guess that is what I shall do!

And of course, we couldn't go outside without the company of Missy. The ultimate pigeon dog! The pigeons like to drink out of the pool. Not on Missy's watch though. She won't let them even sit on the fence without chasing them away. I wish my cats would chase them like the dog does.
I should be out floating in the pool, it is such a gorgoues day out. The water is still kinda chilly though. I guess I could turn on the heat for it, but it seems to foolish when it's 100 degrees outside! You would think the sun would warm it up!
I am going to quit creating for the day and clean up my room! It is driving me nuts! I can barely walk. I bought a few items at the antique store recently and they are still in the bags and on the floor! I bought some really cool stuff though. And I am going to organize my beads and stuff. After that then I will do some creating again and of course I have to do the usual house cleaning, laundry, etc. So...now I am going to put this on Etsy and see if it sells.

To my lovely sisters...have fun painting! My sister Lynn just closed on her new home and my sister Sandy has come all the way from Istanbul to help her move and paint. Isn't she such a good sister? Maybe it's cause she has a whole basement full of stuff that she left at Lynn's! Ya think? LOL Sorry I can't be there... :) Love ya!

On another note, I have decided that I am going to create a journal of my trip to Turkey and my sisters & my Blue Cruise on the Aegean Sea. It was such a life altering trip in many ways, I want to make something that I will treasure for a long time. I am inspired by the journal that Judy of Red Velvet Blog made for someone. So stay tuned as I will start making the pages and will post each page as it is done. I don't know how long it will take but I will enjoy the process because that was the greatest trip I have ever taken and creating the pages will bring me back... Sigh...

I am grateful that the cop that stopped me this morning on my way to work didn't give me a ticket! LOL. I was going down the turning lane....OK it was not a turning lane when I went into it but it did turn into one...LOL He told me that they were warning people that you can only use that lane within 200ft of the light. Told me not to do it again, at which I promptly said yes officer. I will NEVER do it again. And then he let me go on my merry way. I was very GRATEFUL. I didn't need ANOTHER ticket. LOL Lord, my new car is getting me in lots of trouble. I am grateful that I have a wonderful husband and two great kids, and three great sisters, and I like my boss and my coworkers, and I live in a nice house and drive a nice car. I am grateful I am alive and well... It sure puts you in a different mood when you start to think about what you are grateful for.

On a happier note.. Happy Birthday dear sister Lynn. My creative sidekick. LOL I know you are gonna kill me for putting up this picture but I just love it. You were always such a wild dresser when you were younger. What happened? LOL Not to say that you are dull now, but you are more reserved!
Happy Mother's Day to all. I hope it is a wonderful day for everybody.

I hate the way my camera make things look. This looks so much better in person. I so want a new camera. Nina Bagley told me about the one she uses and I think I am probably gonna get that one. She asked me to take a picture of her and Olga in our class at Art & Soul and I was so impressed with the ease of use and how good the picture was. It has 10x optical zoom which I love! I did alot of research on cameras today just to make sure it is what I want. I guess we shall see if it makes a big difference in my art pictures.

We had Saturday off. No classes! Did we rest??? NO. We went to the antique district in Norfolk. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I did make a small purchase but that's about it. Then it was vendor night! What fun. It was so packed though. There are so many talented artists there and only so much money! After shopping, we went back to our room and relaxed.
