Treehouse Studio...

I am happily working here in Virginia...the house sits on top and off the side of a mountain.  This place has always been a haven for me and a place where I can conjure up creativity with little or no effort.  I have already finished a couple of cool things, and have more in the line-up for this coming week. 
It feels so good to have this ever-flowing artistic juice coursing through me.  I know that a few weeks ago, when I stayed at my former home, and tried to work in my former studio, I quickly realized that there was no muse there for me anymore.  It was a little sad, and a great deal reaffirming that I don't belong there...and I am glad for the experience, and knowing that I am on the right path with my work and my life. 
I will try to upload some pictures later this week and show off what I am creating here in the treehouse...right now my fingers are itching to get back to work...I keep looking over at my dressform and the partially completed dress that she is wearing, and I am anxious to see what will happen next.  I will be back in a few days...until then, may you feel as peaceful and blessed as I do at this moment....

Time to Take my Shop on the Road...

Yep!  I will be heading for the Virginia mountains in a couple of days. I spent today picking out what I would take to work on...dresses and tops...while I'm up in the treehouse....the magical place full of love that I treasure so much...I always feel so creative there..its in the air and it buzzes all around me the whole while.  It truly is quite amazing.
A couple of weeks ago I went and stayed at the farm where I lived with my family for years, and set up my things in my old studio.  I couldn't make anything.  Everything I tried to do became a jumbled mess.  There is nothing of me left in that place.  After the first couple of days, I gave up.  I spent most of my time outside because I felt more myself there.
I know that it won't be that way in Virginia.  It is and has been a special retreat for me, and I am counting down the hours till I head that way.  I will try to post again while I'm there, and include some pictures.  Just wanted to check in. I didn't realize I'd been away for so long.  I have changed my vending schedule to include new and exciting venues, and I'll be telling you about them in the near future.  Right now I'm off to bed, and will wake up one day closer to my departure...stay safe and live peacefully.
