“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.” Anne Lamott
Learning to let go with color and play more with my art! I must admit I suffered with a terrible case of Perfectionism for so many years. The kind that freezes you in your tracks and makes you unable to do anything. Slowly I am giving it up and embracing the process. I am not sure where all of this will take me, but I know I am enjoying it. Just taking large Leaps and smiling all the way!

I have always enjoyed drawing, painting , crafting, and figuring things out so to speak, but maintaining a website is a new beginning ! Taking the plunge and seeing where my journey will take me. Feeling a wee bit vulnerable and yes courageous at the same time!
Fell in love with mixed media art and the classes of Tamara Laporte and Lifebook 2014. I honestly feel like I just crawled out from under a rock! There is a whole wonderful Art culture out there online. I am tickled PINK with new beginnings! Weee!
