Snowy Sunset


Relax and be still...like freshly fallen snow

I love the coziness and simplicity of the winter months, along with that magical feeling after the snow stops.  That moment when you walk outside, hear the crunch of snow under your boots, see your breath in the air, and look up at the beautiful blue winter skies.  It's quite the sight to see, and one that tends to give me feelings of renewed energy for all things in life.  January & February have always been my "blank slate" - which means you'll find me re-organizing, getting things in order, and planning for the rest of the year (and beyond).

Not sure where the last four years have gone - other then it moved fast and had a few moments of chaos, especially when we look back at the pandemic years, politics, and world & local news.  2023 went out with some tough stuff for our family, as in December - my Mom had a stroke, and my husband had open heart surgery (an aortic aneurysm that grew fast).  Thankfully both of them are healing and recovering well.  However, we are the type of people that keep a positive outlook, and appreciate that life is good, with lots of things to be thankful for, including our 2 and 3 year old Grandchildren that I watch on a daily basis.   

So happy to say, that 2024 came in with a different feeling and energy.  It's like a new perspective and knowledge that this is the year where I will have the opportunity to squeeze in more time for creativity, and make my creative plans a reality, with a re-design of my business and the ways I can impact others through my art, talents, skills and ideas/thoughts.  Speaking of impacting others, here's a tip for all my creative friends that might need to hear this...

If someone gives you advice to stop doing something, and that "something" is something you feel passionately about...please do yourself a favor and go into selective hearing mode!  Life is too short, to abandon any of your dreams, or to stop doing something that you love doing.  There is no-one that knows what's best for you, better than YOU.  Keep on - keeping on in all your creative endeavors and life!

Next month on the blog look for some new creative project shares, and possibly some changes to my logo, as I prepare to get back into the swing of things on the business side.

Have fun, be kind and creative!

Hugs, JLynn
