    Winter is Upon Us…

    2012 - 01.30

    So far this Winter has been interesting.  Starting off with our “freak” winter storm in October, which actually canceled Halloween!  However, at that time, I realized how even more blessed I was when my great friend and her family took the kids and I in so we would be safe and warm with no expectations.  That’s a true blessing right there, which I will forever be grateful for.  Time after that seemed to take off and here I am in late January!  Open Studio Hartford was most excellent once again.  :)   I’m already excited for next year!  I also submitted pieces to Capital Community College which are displayed January 23 through February 4, 2012.  One of my pieces was even displayed on the back cover of the brochure…out of over 300 pieces!  I’ve also finished writing and putting together a book I’ve been working on for quite awhile, and it’s off to a couple of great friends of mine for editing.  Hopefully, within a month or so, I’ll be able to send it off for publishing and get it out to all of you shortly after that.  I’m looking forward to your feedback!  :)

    One event coming up is the Macabre Faire out in Long Island, NY!  April 13-15, 2012.  (more details to come)  I’ll be there, with my artwork on display and lounging around with the ghouls.  (Hey, I’ve got to make up for missing Halloween!!!)  It’s going to be a great event, with many displays, fashion, art, even a famous actor from some of your favorite horror flicks!!  Email me for more information!  :)

    Other than creating, I’ve been living day by day, minute by minute.  Honestly, that’s all you CAN do, because the future holds a lot of ‘what-if’s’.  You never know what the future holds, and you’ve got to just live your life, the best way you know how.  Lessons are going to come your way, all day, every day, not just for you, but for ALL of us.   Recognize that, and don’t be quick to judge, don’t be quick to run, don’t be too hard on yourself and don’t be quick to give up.  Stay strong and keep on living and do the best that you can, for you and for others.  I’ll keep you all posted on upcoming events, and in the meantime….stay warm and keep the positive flowing.  :)
