Change is Coming

Don't you feel it? It always happens at this time of year...I can feel change is in the air. I like what this poem says about change...let it. Embrace it. Something better is on the other side of change.

My mom always tries to remind me that life isn't has its share of ups and downs. I tend to look at life through rose-colored glasses and I need to be reminded to come back to earth occasionally. But it really is the's the adventure...its the ride of your life.

"Nobody said that it would be easy...they just promised it would be worth it." NO REGRET LIVING...thats what its all about.

Return Visit

In February I wrote about my ten year anniversary doing dress up tea parties.
During the red room event on Saturday, Kristen came and found me and said there was a lady looking for me who had a tea party with me years ago.
My first tea party girl is now 24 years old and is an aspiring artist and teacher.
Brittany Atterbury is all grown up and looking beautiful.
She gave me her business card which I am sharing with all of you if you need someone for murals, or face painting or art teacher.
Its so fun for the party girls to come back in....its always exciting to see where they are now.
