Days 848- 946 Yes- still creating daily

I keep on saying that one of these days I will get it - that I cannot manage time, but only my activities. As you can see, I am not doing so well with this concept LOL. So .. I haven't posted in a few months (hanging head in shame) because I did not manage my activities appropriately and my art blog suffered.

During this time I have continued to create daily. I completed my 4 paintings for the Philadelphian Art Show, participated in the All Creatures juried exhibition at Beauty Art Gallery and the Philadelphian Art show. I have made new "skully" Hand braided Shambala bracelets in different colors ( available at )  lots of photos and working on 3 new pieces of art for my "energy series".

These past 3 years have been really interesting. One different New year's resolution has brought so many changes in my life, for the better. I didn't realize that my wanting to paint/create every day  would seep into the rest of my life and improve all areas. I am in much better health, shape and spiritual comfort than I have ever been.  I am taking more chances and facing fears one by one. And in the midst of all of these I am finding a strong artistic voice.  Don't get me wrong- every step scares me and freaks me out. What if my creations don't find an audience, what if people don't get my point of view. What if I am no good...
The list goes on and on.  I am choosing to silence the voices. I am choosing to venture in areas I haven't before. And because of this- July was really rough. I had to go to some deep emotional waters that I would have rather not. It hasn't been easy, but I do pray that when I get to the other side that it will free me from the chains that have been holding my spirit and creativity down and let me fly.
In the meant time, I am asking for all the people that I know to help me get to Paris to exhibit my works and get Grant money for my Art.  Go to and click vote. You have to sign up with them but it is for a good cause... :D ME!!! I so want to do this

So since I didn't post for all this time, I will not add all the pictures but some highlights.
My goal now till the end of the year is to be able to find a way to manage my activities so I have time to at least post on my Art blog once a week. 3 mos of no posting is not acceptable and it causes blocks in my creativity.
