ahhh a monday without work. So nice, so sweet. Today I slept till 11, okay almost noon. [hangs head in shame] and then made my way outside to the garage for some creation synergy. For the most part it was a pretty productive day. I made some paper for Paris’ painting. I stripped down some old canvas for a new painting. I started a new project…still with out a name. However, around 6 I decided I did not like what I was working on and threw white paint all over it. That is just how I role. I like to call this, crete and destroy. To me it just follows a law of nature, for every action there is an equal and and opposite reaction. Plus it makes for a hell of a release of frustration. None the less, work week starts tomorrow and I plan on coming home and painting. I will finish my projects. I will finish my projects. I will finish my projects.
Lil’ Lagniappe: I received the sweetest email from Ms. Dejarnette NOLA herself. I will share a clip it because I think it is something we all need to hear on a regular basis, “I want to let you know that when I first started creating jewelry I didn’t think in a MILLION years I would be able to run my business full time. As cliche as it sounds, I think if you have a passion and work hard enough it will happen. I feel very fortunate to do something I love every day. And then a sweet person like yourself blogging about my jewelry–that is the cherry on top!”
Hope everyone has a fantabulous shorter work week! Paper Rainbows…W
