I'm Back

Right Now....

 - I'm taking ONE LITTLE WORD with Ali Edwards - My word is TRANSFORM. It fits, I want to explore this challenge and take this word and really apply it to my life. I'm also excited that its a year class, I have a month to really think about our challenge or task. I have my NEVER GIVE UP (thank you SGI), journal at hand, with ideas, about my word, and how I want to change me as a person. I'm excited and scared at the same time. I do not like to disappoint myself. My word last year was commitment, I didn't however challenge myself the way I will this year, but I kept going back to it, wish I would have done more with it. 

- I'm re-reading Twyla Tharp's two book,

The Collaborative Habit
The Creative Habit

- I really enjoyed reading them the first time and really got my creative juices, going. 

- I'm struggling with my art journaling, nothing is coming and what is coming looks just horrible. 

- Sewing costumes for comp, our first comp is next month, very nervous about this season, but so excited to see how much our kids have grown up using their bodies. I'm so thankful I get to work with hard working kids, It makes my time there fly...makes me want to teach them so much more. I LOVE TO SEW, even though I do get frustrated more often then not. I really enjoy it.
