treasured thursday

Education is more than the filling of a pail, it is also the lighting of a fire.

Things I love Today
            Salmon salad
            Cathee is ALL GOOD xo
            Receiving a lovely note from Laura xo
            Gala darling
            Ice road truckers
Tid bits from the homefront:
            Still no appearance by the momma cat … hoping she is home[?] with her kittens and doing well.
            Cable guy came this morning … new modem … hoping the intermittent internet will now cease.
            Not sure if I will have much writing time here this weekend. It is our last weekend to work on finalizing all of the dreamy wedding plans and get Taylor’s dress altered, and do a gazillion little things – while [in the steal of the night] I will be finishing up the book for the Art House Project. And … excited – getting the pool ready for the warm weather I am focusing on right now.
            June, 2011 – I am offering a new series of glass [art] classes. It will be so much fun. My new outside area will be so great for glass art and learning about the kiln. There will be two levels – adults and kids … if you would like to join in, and/or know anyone who would, let me know. It will be great fun. I usually make small [jewelry] pieces – occasionally I go larger. Here are a couple of pieces I made which I am putting in my Etsy Shop soon [as soon as I figure out the packaging and shipping].

Garden Fun: Week 6
I am feeling optimistic in regard to my gardening ability this year. I think all of the little plants are going to flourish and produce yummy food. Starting everything from seed was different for me. I was a little anxious about it … though most [no green peppers – I may have to go to the nursery for those – nothing came up at all???] came up strong – yeah. Already eating lettuce/mixed greens – so cool.

Overcast day here in the woods. I am not usually fond of overcast days – though this one feels quite perfect. Could be ‘me’ I guess, as everything feels quite perfect lately. 67 degrees and calm … I love it … probably more rain later, and right now it feels great.
The pressure is on. I only have 10 days to complete A Light in the Distance. Yikes. I am getting there. Send energy please - I must have this in the mail April 31st ...
Okay … here’s my life situation. I need assistance with building my Etsy Shop into a thriving enterprise. I love creating wearable art, and I think I am pretty good at it … I want so much for this to be ‘my job’. If you like what you see , please pick up a few things … and I would so appreciate it if you would send the link to your friends. Thank you. Thank you.
Starting May 1st my wearable [and garden] art will be in a lovely boutique – FABO in Charlotte. I am so excited for this opportunity … hoping this works out well and other boutiques want to carry PatriciaA wearable art soon. If you know anyone with a shop where hand made art is loved – please let me know.
Remember to leave me a comment for the GIVE-A-WAY – 4 garden art signs - Just a quick click on comment – and then anonymous – and put your name in the comment –[with your tip for helping the planet] please. Drawing for custom garden art signs will be Tuesday, April 26th at noon.
My success was not based so much on any great intelligence but on great common sense.

hope everyone has a beauteous weekend ...
Until tomorrow xo♥  
Be what you want the world to be
