Lately, I've been on the most incredible journey. A few weeks back Imene had a give away for a spot in Shannon Kinney Duh's Inside/Out e-course. I pondered. Do I have time for this? Should I just sign up for the course or should I enter the giveaway? So I took a leap of faith. I said to myself,"Self, if you are meant to be in this course then nothing can stop it from happening." To show my full support for Imene and the kindness she was offering her readers I entered the giveaway. I went on with my daily life and then a few days later I got a wall posting on my facebook and an email from Imene saying" You Won ! ".
So there it was, I was destined to take make place in an artistic ecourse about discovering myself. It has only been one week and there is this incredible shift happening inside me. For the first time I am seeing me. Not the list all the things you can do me, but the real me......and I like her.
I've met my inner critic and dowsed her with creative paintings,clippings,and mud. Today I'm learning to be still. This course completely embraces the mind,body,and spirit. From time to time I'll update you on this road I'm on and my new discoveries. Big thank you's to both Imene and Shannon for their generous gifts.
Next......yes,there is a next. Now that I have my creative juices flowing I got an email yesterday from my favorite local knitting store,The Knitting Nest. There have been rumors that Kaffe Fassett is coming to Knoxville. We were sorry to hear the Kaffe doesn't teach knitting clinics anymore but Brandon Mably from theKaffe Fassett design studio does. On the last Monday in April, I will be sitting with creative genius for 6 or 7 hours learning how to design knitted items inspired by world travels. I'm so excited and I'm holding my breath as I write this. Next week I have an entire Brandon Mably post ready to go. Wait until you meet him. He's so fantastic.
Lastly on this day of abundance, I have a blog posting over at the Rhythm of the Home blog. I could not have known what an incredible collection of talented women I would be in touch with when I wrote my first article, for the first edition of Rhythm of the Home. I'm so thankful for this outlet and all of the things I learn and share from this vibrant community of creative and soulful mommas.
Today I move in gratitude for all of the incredible paths I am walking and for all of your friendships via blogland. Each one of you inspire me everyday to live a more creative and conscious life. I am so thankful for all of you. Tomorrow we'll be back with another Fox Diary Post. Until then, Be Well.
