restarting


thoughts are moving around again slowly upstairs after a complete doodlebreak for a few days... had a fantastic weekend in DC celebrating my friend's **th birthday... i love going to DC and this weekend was more exciting than ever because of the buzz surrounding the inauguration. the energy in the city was amazing. oh, what fun. wine, food, friends, being in a real city again... it felt great. i came home totally refreshed, just in time to take care of my sweet artsygirl who woke me up eight times in the middle of the night and landed us in the doctor's office this morning... back to reality... but refreshed... restarted...full of ideas... and already planning my next trip :)

How cool! Love your inner cyclops, peering at all those thoughts that seem somehow connected, yet somehow not.

Kept reading about the inauguration all weekend and thought about the electricity you'd be soaking in. Glad to hear your trip was a blast. But so, so sorry to hear about artsygirl. Hope she gets better soon.

This reminds me of my college day, my lecturer kept us busy, doing flowchat and bubble digramme is a must for every pin up.
It's a good start for me.
It's also a good one for you.
Idea better flow and connected:)

I enjoy your recent postings. Thanks for sharing the joy behind the materials and the process of making those cute inpirational colourful crads.All are signature pieces!

Sorry about artsygirl, I hope everything is fine now! And your time there in the city sounds great:)
I like the thought-painting, the way the words are torn between here and there, shall I do this or shall I do that ...cause there are so many things to do:)
love
