It’s been a week of incredible dreams come true… I am opening my studio… and this happened… I am the new host for the CreativeMornings boston chapter. I dreamed about this but never thought it possible because our current host was never supposed to leave… ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  But it has happened, and I can hardly contain my excitement! After a call with CMHQ yesterday and today’s event, it is OFFICIAL! <3

So this happened today…. I have been waiting for two whole months to share this news because I was so afraid that I would jinx it or something would fall through…. I am opening my own art studio and co-working space for a small community of hustling creatives!!! Ack… someone pinch me! It’s a dream come true! Now to make this space what I envision it to be in my mind…

Dreams come true. They do. But they don’t just happen. Work first.

 

I’m starting to feel like the experimental phase is giving way to expression with the 100 Days of INK Drops. It’s been so much fun thus far and now things are taking shape. ๐Ÿ™‚

Life is good when you can take your work to the park and your adorable toddler runs over to brings you dandelions every few minutes.

I’m gearing up for a crazy few weeks with some incredibly exciting new ventures and projects unfolding but for now, I am exhaling and anticipating all the wonderful new starts.

I am FINALLY back on track – waking up a couple hours early to do my morning pages and start the day making art…. I finally feel centered again. Or, I’m getting there. April was a little chaotic with traveling, family being sick, and laying the not so fun, but ever so necessary, groundwork for some new adventures but we got through it!

Through it… in real time. I guess it’s tempting to say we wish we could fast forward through certain times when things are tough, but in the spirit of living mindfully, I really tried to live my best life through the difficulties. I tried to fashion my character through the fire… it wasn’t easy. It wasn’t fun or pretty. But, I got through it and I learned a few things about myself and learned to appreciate my home, my partner, and my beautiful family so much more.

With all that’s going on at present, I won’t be able to blog every day as originally intended, but I will keep it going regularly and once the dust settles a little, I’ll come back full swing. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am still keeping up with The 100 Day Project and you can follow that journey via instagram with my 100 Days of INK Drops!

 

Spring has finally sprung in Boston… Today is a hybrid between April showers and May flowers. I had to get out to take a walk to get my mind right. There are so many amazing things in the works and sometimes I feel like the hardest part is being patient and waiting for things to unfold in their right time.

Time… Timing.

Sometimes things happen that make me feel like time and/or timing is not working with me… but after the fact, when I look back, I see that timing was always perfect. It just doesn’t always look like it when things are unfolding into the unknown. Today I remind myself of that… everything happens for a reason, and it happens exactly when it’s supposed to happen.

A closeup for Day 20 of #100DaysofINKDrops – things are a bit crazy at the moment, trying to stay on top of it all. Sometimes it feels like I’m sinking…
