The Happenings....

I have just not been so good at blogging each day. I have kept my promise to make art each day, but I'm just not so good at getting my photos loaded up and blogging about what I've been up to. But, today is the day that I'm getting it done.
I am busy preparing for a demo (A Journey with my Journal) I am doing at Jerry's Artarama in Raleigh on this Saturday, Jan. 24th. If you live in the area, I would love for you to drop by and say hello.

This is a new page I've done....
I was listening to Jim Rohn the other day and he spoke of words that could change your life....
One was Disgust, and the other was Resolve. Disgust...."being fed up". And Resolve..."A promise to never give up". That struck a chord with me. Resolve. Imagine how different our lives would be if we made a promise to ourselves to never give up on something. What if we promised to not give up on our wanting to learn a new technique...maybe even drawing. What if we made a promise to not give up on our dream of becoming a "successful" artist.....or our dream of going back to school to earn another degree....or get our homes uncluttered. What ever it is that you have in your heart to do....what would happen if you PROMISED to not give up on it. Give it a try....Aren't you worth it!!!
I appreciate your stopping by to my little corner of the world. Make it a great day.
Until next time,
Ophelia

How Time Flies...

I can't believe that so much time has passed since my last post. Gosh, a lot has been going on with me in the studio and life....so lets see...

My Big 39 was on Christmas Eve. We spent most of the day on the road...but it was nice to be surrounded by family for my birthday. I'm excited about what being 39 will bring.

The holidays were a whirlwind of activity with the kiddies and cousins and such...then we returned home to a bit of quiet for a while.

I have decided that my "word" for this year is Believe...

Sorry the picture is not very good..... I wanted to address what I believe and of course, the power of belief....
What are you believing for this coming year. Do you believe that your art is important enough to have priority in your life? Do you believe that you could go back to school? Do you believe that you could run a marathon? What is it that you belive. Writing my thoughts really helped me clarify my direction for this year, and I encourage you to do the same?
Until next time,
Ophelia
