Happy Holidays and best wishes in the New Year!

Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel and blessings this Winter Soltice!  Dear creative kindred spirits I wish you all a plethora of creative opportunities in the new year!  I am happy to say that I have begun my efforts to develop a more creative habit of mind than I have currently.  I pushed myself to enter a painting in a show through the Berkeley Art Center.  BAC had a call for entries for their winter show and a friend sent me the announcement.   I just felt it was the writing on the wall to get out there and show my work.  In the flurry of trying to get the piece framed and delivered to the curators, I forgot to take a picture of it.  Silly me!  In anycase, I am proud of my effort. 

The wreath above is one of the creative efforts I made for the holidays.  I use to go into a Martha Stewart mode and decorate, bake and make for many years but my job in the last 5 years took all the joy out of my spirit and I haven't done anything for years.  This year was different.  With a job change, I was able to release the bad karma of the last job and take on one that gave me a sense of Joy and freedom that I use to know.  So, with that said, I have been crafting, baking and making again.  What JOY! 

So, to 2012 I look forward to continue what I started this holiday.  Year round crafting, painting, sewing, baking and making.  My heart is full.  Best wishes to you all and your families.  Cheers.
