Beginnings and Endings….Change is Good, Very Good!

Standard

 

In just a few days my four year old preschool class will be graduating from preschool to be in kindergarten next fall. It will be my last class. After 24 years of teaching I am not returning next year but will be focusing on making jewelry and following my heart. It is perfectly divine timing how it all falls into place. Yes, it is a little bittersweet and I will miss the smiles, hugs, laughter and craziness that is unique to 3 and 4 year olds but in 2 minutes I can have a visit and I know I’ll be welcome anytime. It has been a very good ride! My heart felt gratitude for awesome friends/coworkers that I’ve been so blessed to work with and especially for all of the families that have shared their most precious souls with us. That said, I am so very excited to have more time and energy to devote in the studio. Ideas and inspirations come to me daily and nightly……sometimes I’m just bursting with them!! The shows I’ve been a part of this season and my open studio days been beyond my expectations! I feel so blessed to have such truly wonderful customers, many who are, or become friends. Thank you truly and wholly for your support and appreciation, it means the world to me!!

And away we go…..

Lately the pull to my little shop has been ever stronger. Creativity is flowing along with the wonders of spring in all it’s glory, and let’s be honest here, pollen abounds as well. Staring at my car, I thought, wow, that pollen is such a gorgeous green, as my eyes starting itching. It lasts but a short time and it’s what makes plants and flowers grow and bloom, so it’s all good. May begins art show season for me as well. Last weekend I kicked it off in Richmond at Arts in the Park. I have people there that helped me with the whole shebang….set up, show days, keeping me company, and tear down. What a blessing!!! Love my family for many reasons, this is just one! It was a spectacular weekend, gorgeous weather, really awesome vendors and enthusiastic customers. What a great way to get things rolling. Here are a few pictures.
