Last week the calm before the “storm” of everything found me in my Studio with a quiet moment.  Between the work of manicures, dress fittings, pre-wedding details, phone calls, working on tans lines, and before the numerous trips to the airport to pick  up family and friends I had a calm, a quiet in my Studio.  I found solace in my art journal and ironically it was the last page of my 7 X 10 art journal.  It was time to close a chapter in this portion of life’s story and I painted….



Boy it felt so great to get creatively messy…..



DecoArt Meda Line fun at it’s best!



My art journals tell a story, my story.  A story with many chapters.  Best said “when I let go of what I am. I become what I might be…”

I will make sure to re-cap this journal and the pages of ideas, thoughts and feelings.  Many chapters yet to be captured in color.  I am very excited to share them and was ever so thankful for the art in the midst of things.  Blessed.  Stay tuned for more Bride Musings.  The weekend was sure full of so much!  For now, Happy Friday!

Circumstances will direct you, correct you, and perfect you over time.  Sometimes these circumstances knock you down, hard.  There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong.  And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t.  When you feel like quitting, remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right.  Sometimes you have to go through the worst, to arrive at your best.  Because our most significant opportunities are often found in times of great difficulty.  Thus, you will face your greatest opposition when you are closest to your biggest miracle.”
