A New View

Well, Hello again!

I have been very out of touch recently due to our recent move from Crestline, CA to La Pine, OR.  Don't let anyone tell you moving is a piece of cake.  Especially when you are moving to another state with a business that includes a glass workshop and all of it's tools and equipment as well as a complete woodworking workshop.

All I can say is I am glad it's done! 

We have been in our new house for about 3 weeks.  The glass painting studio and wood shop are all put together and up and running.  Except for those two pieces of equipment that must be out in storage somewhere......

Anyway - I wanted to say Hi again and let you know about a show I am doing this weekend!  It is the Sisters Art in the Park event held at the Creekside Park in Sisters, OR. Going into Sisters from Bend you will see the park and all the vendor booths on your left - you can't miss it!

Hope to see you soon!

New Year - New Thoughts

I don't usually actually make New Year's resolutions.  I like to make goals for myself all of the time, so it seems sort of redundant.  

But, this year there are a couple of things that I really do "resolve" to do.

1.  I resolve to eat as "vegan" of a diet as I can.  This can be difficult when eating out or with friends.  And reading all of the ingredients on packages is quite tedious.  But I feel very strongly about this in my life and hope that I can make a difference in my health, the invironment and for farm animals everywhere.

2.  Secondly, and I just thought of this today, I resolve to try to live every day as if I am on vacation.  I thought about how I slow down my movements, my thoughts, my interactions when I am on vacation.  I tend to enjoy moments more on vacation.  That could be because I am away from regular surroundings where people and things become mundane chores, but I think it might have more to do with a state of mind. This one will be tough.  I think I am up for it. 

As for goals - those will start soon and continue throughout the year.  I am really looking forward to a very healthy, happy and fun 2012.  Hope you are, too!
