Hopeless Dreamer.....

....I have been working hard and trying to get my art out there! I am in more shops, and I am in three upcoming shows, which I am very excited for, and also nervous! My jewelry is very personal to me and I want, no need, people to like it! It's like putting my soul out there for people to pick at!  We don't create just for the sake of creating or to make money! In fact, with art, the money is an afterthought! We create because our soul dies if we don't! It's a need, a drug, a release, a stress reducer, a calm that you can't explain unless you create as well! It's a dream world we create and cocoon ourselves and our families in! It's a safe haven for the hopeless dreamer who needs imagination, craves freedom, and has a need to touch lives in a way unexplainable! As I've said before, having someone want to adorn their bodies and/or life with my little creations is the highest form of compliment! It's intimate, humbling, and personal! It grounds you and connects you to people of all backgrounds and fills your heart with great pride and happiness! It gives you wings to fly and opens doors to others you may not have otherwise met! It's true, I am a hopeless dreamer, but I'd rather be that than have no hopes, dreams, aspirations, or be void of imagination and friendships that are so dear to me! So I will continue to create, hope, befriend, and yes, hoplessly dream, for I am the..... HOPLESSS DREAMER! Join me.....

SHINE...this is my mantra! One of my fav words right now, although, at times, it's hard to live by even my own word. I believe we should all shine as bright as we can and it is our duty to help others shine as well! Family, friends, even strangers....all it takes is a smile, or a kind word, or holding a door open for someone can brighten even the worst day. Remember, the grass is NOT always greener on the other side and we cannot judge unless we have walked a day in someone elses shoes! Shine can mean so many different things to so many different people, but when you shine your brightest it can brighten the darkest corner for someone in need and thus making your light that much brighter. Such a simple concept...so go ahead, let yourself SHINE!!!!
I regret that I have neglected my blog but not any more! Thanks to a couple friends who suggested I focus on it some more and through other fan responses! Blogging is a great way to stay focused and to gain insight and inspiration. There are so many beautiful artsy blogs out there and I aspire to be one of those blogs. I will make more time to do so! I admit that I am waiting for my floor to dry, which is allowing me the time to catch up right now, so not having time is really no excuse as it doesn't take much time  just to catch up! Any way....I promise to be better.
