as i was "working" in the studio i accidentally spilled a jar of sequins all over the floor. my first reaction was how lame i was. i totally forgot to close the lid. in looking at the mess i instantly saw this shimmery happy mess as the prettiest mess i've made yet. it's so easy to stop looking at things with a different perspective. or maybe i'm just going crazy :) but i've been reflecting. pondering. willing and working at finding new ways to explore 2011 with a shimmery new perspective. my father always says to not wish for things that people can steal from you, but to pray for things that can never be stolen. like happiness. wisdom. hope. grace. love. i want 2011 to overflow with a lovely shimmery light of all these things in my mind, my heart and my soul. i'm ready :)
as i was looking through my files, (having another "back your things up" party in the studio today :) i found a few pictures of the only other mini i completed in 2010. it was for a class i taught early on in the year. i'm happy with it because i used the album filled with papers & embellishments i designed. And i had so much fun teaching spray paint & crazy sewing skills to the loveliest group of women. i hadn't shared photos of it so here you are... i hope you enjoy xo.
i wish you a shimmery & lovely day for the rest of 2011
