Just far enough away to feel removed from everyday life. Loved the pools. Glad to be able to share this with a friend.

The courage to do what you love

Sometimes it takes courage to do what you love. SANY1203 Maybe we are afraid that we will not be good enough or just frustrate ourselves and not enjoy the process. These are battles that we unfortunately place on ourselves and only we can take these barriers down and throw them away.

When we say to ourselves that enough is enough and take that step forward, it may begin with trepidation and fear, but then end up with joy, freedom and the curiosity as to why we did not do this earlier in its place.

What would you love to do?:

  • take a few days away… just for you (and maybe a friend or two)
  • A weekend get-a-way from the everyday!
  • use assemblage to create your very own creepy misfit toy
  • learn the vastly growing trend of art journaling
  • create a warm and loved filled painted scroll to decorate your home
  • create a 3D mixed media enigma
  • remake your favorite little bottle into something completely demented and vial
  • adorn your journal cover to reflect the ‘eye of the beholder’. (Mine, your Host, would be a girl looking back at me… of course…lol. Have you seen my art? It’s all glitzy gal girls!)
  • stay up late with some good friends and maybe a glass of wine or two!

Sometimes along our personal journey we get creatively stuck and need a jump start to recharge our batteries or just need to step aside from our normal everyday lives. Have time to breathe, laugh, make friends and take a leap of faith in ourselves.

The importance of PLAY

PLAY = less gadget activity and more real life interaction. PLAY is a huge part of truly living your life. PLAY brings laughter, joy, friendship and freedom of the soul. PLAY gives you permission to enjoy the moment, relish in the now. PLAY is what we all need to further enjoy our journey. For it is the journey and not the destination itself is what matters most.

Give yourself permission to PLAY!

We welcome you to come wiggle your toes in our sandbox!

My good friend Satira came up across the ole USA/Canada border to hang out with me today. It was so nice to take a few SANY1164hours just to have some laughs and play. Thank you, my dear friend. I needed that!
