Happy New Year Everyone!
Whew, what a year, huh? My business year started off great with the smell of growth in the air. Then waves of anxiety and no small amount of fear at the unknown, began my every day.
In moments of obstinate positivity I “project’d” the heck out of my life. I painted our utility closet and rearranged it to peak efficiency (wink). I began learning French and relearning Piano. I organized my hard drive files! We volunteered to foster shelter animals. We sewed 250+ cotton face masks. We participated in online art challenges. We finished our 18th Century costumes that were meant for a June event. I devoured YouTube videos of Marie Kondo helping people find items, in their homes, that “sparked joy”. Then I went through my clothes and purged everything that pissed me off! No joy, cuz it’ll never fit again? Then into the pile it went!
I ended up concentrating so hard on what I could “control” that I lost sight of my dear camera. I still took photos but they were more snaps and less art or work. Eventually I got back to it. Below, I offer you a glimpse of my last 12 months.
I send you each my best wishes for a joyful and productive 2021!
