This has been a really hard week for me. It started beautifully with a day off of work and some great news. Then it went down hill. Lots of disappointment, a bit of worry, and some pain...it was tough. But through it all I have tried to keep perspective. I have also tried to keep busy. I love this new medium. Painted fabric. Here are some new, inspired items I have made. A wonderful new clutch and butterfly brooch. There's nothing like getting into that creative place to make you feel happy and full. Life is good.
