Celebrating lots of little and big things today. Mostly the magic that was getting eight creative women in a room and making books and getting crafty and sharing ideas. I had an opportunity to teach a class in real life this past weekend and I will have more to share about it shortly. It was an awesome experience that I am so thankful for. I left exhausted, but inspired.
Also celebrating the fact that I am looking at some downtime. I know moving to a new town and cleaning/repainting an apartment and traveling for Thanksgiving doesn't sound like downtime. But at the moment, it feels like bliss. Between the stress of that race and then the excitement but nerves that came from working at Kolo and prepping for this class, I think my brain is ready to settle into a little hibernation mode. Without meaning to, I set three big challenges for myself this fall and in the past 28 days I happily (and perhaps magically) tackled them.
I am loving the freedom of not knowing what is next. When I said that to my mom (who I can't thank enough for coming with me to the workshop this weekend) she said, "Weren't you going to write a book?" And OH YES, I totally am. But still. Coming up with new projects and playing with text sounds like a vacation.
Blah, blah, blaha. Lots of chatter today. I'm excited. I'm thankful. Tiffany, my Teahouse Studio partner in crime this past weekend, said a few times, "The universe gives us exactly what we need when we need it" and she is totally right.
