Everyday Bliss is Where Women Create

20 minutes of bliss turned into 45 minutes of being utterly inspired by the lives of creative women. I went into Barnes & Noble with the specific purpose of selecting a magazine I could rip up for my creative collages. What I found was Stampington's latest issue of Where Women Create.


Today I spent my lunch hour reading stories of women with the courage to follow their dreams even under sometimes harsh conditions and economic uncertainty. Those stories also had another effect. They made it crystal clear to me that I'm still gripped by the fear of leaping into the abyss never to return or worse, living out of my car! Oh, I can hear the symphony of my Venomous Toad Committee playing to the tune of "You can't do it because . . . " *sigh*

Boy! I sure do hear you! When one considers taking the leap...the chasm grows and grows. Probably all I need to do is take a baby step...and I blow it all out of proportion. Ha!
Here's to "TRYING" and "BABY STEPS"

Good morning Kitty dearest! Oh, I saw this mag in Barnes and Noble this weekend and three of my favorites are in there: Ulla Milbrath, whom I was fortunate enough to have in my HOME the day after Thanksgiving last year, Nancy from FĂȘte et Fleur who is my sister-in-law, and Karen Harvey Cox who has been a blogger pal from day one. I would love to be in there one day, but I don't do a lot of crafting!!! Thank you for coming to my blue heaven and yes, doesn't this new hue of blue just grab you right? :)

Enjoy creating from paper, dearest and have a fine day! Anita

You are SOtalented, Kitty. I think you are one of the most talented people I know. I can see you in that book, and I wouldn't worry about the Toad Committee. Besides, who says that you can't create in your spare time??? Some of the most creative people I know create during hours that they aren't at their 9 to 5 jobs. I worked and redid houses on the side. I did my best work when I was busiest. I truly did. Hope that helps...

XO,
