I have bought a nice amount of clothing from this amazing company over the past year. Love the patterns...cut of the clothing....and the feel good manner behind the business. In fact, a recent order took a wee bit too long to get to me so they sent me a gift card to apologize for the lengthy delivery of my skirt. Seriously? Who does that? I wasn't even upset I was just checking on it because it wasn't like their delivery to be so long and I figured it was headed to my old house by accident. Ahhhh...Boden. So when this catalogue came in the mail I had to tear the cover off and place it in the studio. A little gentle reminder. That if I'm not happy, well my paintings aren't happy. Period. That's how it works for me.
Speaking of being happy, I know that when it comes I better just ride the wave. I'm not talking about a freaking roller coaster of emotions, I'm talking about the creative mojo happy wave. I get on that wave and ride it out. Then paddle back out and wait.....then ride it back in. And so it goes. And pray that A. I don't get bitten by something waiting, B. land the wave in a not so fabulous wipe out and C. never find the wave to begin with.
Okay, enough with the cheesy metaphors. Here's what I am saying. Right now, this second I am a creating maniac. And I'm not letting fear, or the whattheheckyadoing monsters get in the way. I'm finding a rhythm with creating, working and mothering (and wifing, but that's a weird word, right?). It's a like this amazing veil has been lifted. And perhaps it's the happiness, yeah....probably so. But things are falling into place nicely and I can not wait until the Acworth Show coming up in April. So get ready....and put it on your calendar! Because I've got a slew of new work to sell. All very reasonable and all very fresh....and HAPPY!
