I feel that usual holiday feeling of having dropped off the face of the earth, floating in a Milky Way of red and green ribbon, twinkling lights, wrapping paper and peppermint. Not a bad place to be, but I still must resist the sometimes overwhelming urge to remove any and all Christmas decorations the morning of December 26th and allow a minor level of disarray to exist in my home. I have managed to begin getting the house back to normal in stages, which has lately involved a great deal of laundry and the very gratifying task of finally hanging a stack of artwork and photos that have been leaning on walls and shelves for the past many months. I received a beautiful light blue version of this small file cabinet for Christmas, and I am now re-organizing the shelves in my studio to make room for this as well as more art supplies. The house is quiet and the weather outside still, and all the while my mind continues to be a swirl of ideas and images I will be exploring in my studio in 2008.
One project I have been working on for many weeks is my new inspirational blog, which will officially launch on January 1st. Take a peek at SPARKLETOPIA and tell me what you think when it comes to life in less than 48 hours. I look forward to your feedback and hope you like it enough to pass it along.
