The past 3 days have been filled with surprises and all good things. A national magazine contacted me on Friday and I have committed to writing an article that will feature one of my techniques and some of my artwork. Pinch me, please! I am under a crunchingly tight timeline, given the holidays and this busy time of year, but since I typically work best under pressure (ignore the meltdowns please) I suspect that having less time than more time will make me buckle down and get to business! Ummmmm....did I say I was on cloud nine about this?
Yesterday my friend Deb and I had a small art/craft/open house day at her place. The radio was blaring warnings of an imminent ice storm so attendance was not what we are use to having at our little shows. Be that as it may, the smaller numbers gave us the opportunity to chat with the people who did come which made the event become more social than buisness related although Deb and I both had enough sales to make us happy.
On Saturday my husband and I were able to spend some much needed time together. We didn't do anything exciting or thrilling, rather just shared some quiet activities together. I often feel as if the small times are the bonds that bind us together as humans. Anyone can plunk down the money to participate in a big extravaganza, Las Vegas type event - but not everyone is able to appreciate the importance of a hand quietly placed on another's when you know their thoughts are deep and filled with emotion.
