Yesterday, October 21, 2019, marked 143 days since I left the corporate world and became a full time artist. What made yesterday a bit of a landmark was the start of my new daily schedule to begin work in my studio at 9:00 AM. From the photo you can see the results of my efforts.

143 days ago, I did have a daily schedule and that is highly recommended when you leave the workforce. However in the past few weeks, I realized I needed to adjust that so I had a set time I would be in my studio. As strange as it sounds, I was spending less time in my studio than when I was employed.

Throughout the past months, there have been many projects around our home that have been completed. The discovery of what I could not get to when I was working outside our home has been a bit overwhelming. My husband, Dan, reassured me that it would take time. I love his wisdom and appreciate his help when he is home….you see, he still works full time.

With my schedule change, I can finally take care of what desperately needs attention, including spending more time metalsmithing. I have found that I am busier now than I ever was when working.

I have been away from posting in this blog for quite some time. A lot of changes have occurred since my last post in the summer of 2018. Some I may choose to share, others maybe not. Happily, my life is filled with so many joys, triumphs and challenges. I truly am grateful for all of it, trying to live each day focused in the present moment.

With this quick little post, I wanted to let you know I’m still creating my art. I am joyful and filled with gratitude. My goal is to write more often and to continue to discuss certain aspects of my personal life, my artistic journey, along with some review of tools I am using and why I find them valuable in my studio.

Until next time, I continue to aspire to be more as an artist and a person.

For the past 5 years, I have been one of the artists of the Front Range Open Studios. Doors have been opened, new friendships have occurred and I have had the pleasure of working with the most enthusiastic, energetic founder of the studio tours, Nancy Bonig, who inspires me and is a great friend.

Each year, Nancy opens her home for us and hosts a Customer Appreciation Party for all of you who have supported us by becoming fans and purchasing our work. It is a private, invitation only event. Yet I wanted to share this here for those who are not part of my mailing list (you can sign up here) and may live in the Tri-Lakes area of Colorado. We want to thank you and invite you to this event too.

As you can see, I will be joined by 5 other artists from the tour. We will have some unique works, some at special pricing, as our way of thanking you.

Please come and enjoy the festive atmosphere and holiday treats. We love talking about our process, our latest works and art in general.

May your Holiday Season be bright, filled with love and laughter.

Until next time, I continue to aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
