A shift in the current

 There is a shift in the seasons here in the United States. Families are preparing for the holiday season, in addition to stockpiling supplies for the winter of twenty-eleven. Folks are stacking wood and gathering kindling. TVA is cutting down trees in our neighborhoods to ensure the sustainability of the grid. Although many of us wish we had the courage to live off the grid. This may be our longest winter yet. The squirrels in around here have been gathering berries in groups of two, since early July. Over the past few weeks, I've buried my head in a book or two and hope to read more in the coming weeks. There is a new Renaissance Rising in art inspired by the Holy Spirit, J Scott McelRoy has written Finding Divine Inspiration to aid the artist of faith on this journey. I simply can not wait to get my hands on this book. I sent Mr. McelRoy an e-mail about Inspired Studios Magazine. He and his team will be in Nashville soon. 
The current is shifting and dreams are coming true, a few years ago, I dreamed of participating in CPS, Virtual Studio Tour and last week that dream came true. Such a little thing, but a really huge thing, when you don't even have a studio. The shift is pretty fast and steady and with this kind of speed our guard goes up and our confidence has a begins to escape us. After completing Kelly's and Holly classes, I decided it was very necessary for me to take some type of recovery Art Class and in steps Tam with a FREE, Art & Heart E-Class. The walls of our local judicial system have become all too familiar to me this year, but I am more hopeful of true freedom now more then ever as my day in court is later this month. Our television gets very little play time as my children are outside tyring to soak up the remaining rays of sunshine left in this year. Yet another shift.Is the current of life shifting for you in the direction of your dreams?


  1. This is a very fortuitous post for me to read today so thank you. There's definitely a shift in my life at the moment that's quite exciting. I love that photo - we used to live in Atlanta and the south sure does beautiful seasons. Everything is blooming here at the moment. Thanks for your sweet words on my blog.

  2. great words. hope the current takes you to your hearts desire. things are shifting in my life, fast! Etsy store not going so well but a part time job that came to me out of the blue has brought me customers for my art. not what I expected!
    God Bless and so nice to read your blog.

You just gotta love this creative go getter Laura ... I'm Thankful to Laura for sharing her inspiring story here on Sunday Spaces ...  The story of my studio is tied in to my cancer. Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer . I say finally because I was sick for 10 months, constant choking and coughing all night long before I found my cancer. ~ okay, side-bar for a quick cancer story....  I was sick, and first we thought it was a virus, then maybe  bronchitis , then maybe an allergy, I coughed and coughed, I couldn't sleep. I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Brio Brainstorm - part of  Creating Action , a free email program from  Scoutie  Girl Find the Little Things That Put a Hop in Your Step   Tara  designed a fun worksheet to help us zero in on what pumps our enthusiasm,it's a fill in the blank work of art. Get your art on,  download  & fill in the blanks. My blanks are in red.

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
