How in the world did this happen?!?!?!? My studio is a terrible mess and for some reason I have not had any motivation to clean it up.
All week long I have been jumping from one project to another and instead of organizing I decided just to clear a space and plop myself down in the middle of it all....which works just fine for me cause I work on the floor anyway!
But thankfully I have been very productive, cause thats all that matters...right?

This guy is a veteran? Looking at my husband today it is hard to guess that he served in the military - he has long hair, lots of facial hair, very liberal and is in fact celebrating today by surfing!! But yes, my hubby served this country for five years- his formative years actually as Search and Rescue in the Navy- he jumped out of helicopters, swam a lot, traveled the world, learned leadership skills, discipline, went a little wild and did all kinds of things that I will never understand or relate to. While he is a VERY different person today at 32 than when he enlisted at 18, there is something that will never change and that is how profound the experience of serving this country was for him. I am not typically very vocal about my patriotism (perhaps I need to work on this?) but today I feel like I must say thank you to my husband and the all the others who made the decision to serve their country. My gratitude.

So I have been procrastinating about doing a give away on my blog- not enough time, what if nobody comments, blah, blah, blah!! But I am proud to say that I have a nice inventory of stuff built up for the holidays and more to come and thought it would be a perfect time to give something away! This bag is one of my favorites- made to look similar to the bag on the front of Canvas Remix it is full of my favorite little mantras (that I seem to repeat over and over to myself all day long!!) like Always Be You and Dream Big Dreams as well as lots of graffiti and messy paint!

Thanks to my hubby I got out for a little vitamin D in the evening when he suggested we go for a little outing and walk along the waterfront of San Diego to watch the sunset- kinda a tradition for us when we get back from a trip. We took our time and strolled along the water looking at all the boats in the marina, appreciating the sun on the water and lovely city that we live- we walked slow- something he is better at than I am! I am trying so hard to be happy and appreciate the now and walking a little slower toward my goals instead of always wanting more and faster. Thankfully I have a great guy by my side who relishes in the present and loves taking his time to appreciate everything along the way- a perfect balance that I am learning to welcome with each experience that comes my way! Now is it back to studio to create some new stuff- stay tuned for a give away, new work and lots of inspiration!!
