We spent the weekend away, celebrating our 4th Anniversary. We had a good time, ate wonderful meals, slept in a super comfy bed, played blackjack and Baccarat, and really just enjoyed our time away…alone.
We all need some time away to recharge our batteries and that is exactly what this was for us.
For the past week, when I haven’t been dealing with doctors and medical tests, I have been busy creating art. Art of all different types. It feels good to create and I have the extra incentive to create with a deal that my sister and I have…we each pick something we want to achieve and become accountable to each other for completing those things. If we don’t accomplish our goals each week, we owe the other money for each part not completed. Yeah, cash is always a good incentive but it’s really more about being accountable to someone besides ourselves. It has certainly helped get me into the studio more and helped me procrastinate less.
I am a huge thrift store/garage sale fan. I’m always looking for a deal and for “stuff” I can use in my art, too. I often find things for our house and it’s unbelievable the deals I come across on things I use to create art pieces. I thought I’d share my latest thrift store find that I’m excited about…
I got this pristine, antique canister set a couple of weeks ago for a mere $5.00. I love a great deal! Aren’t they fabulous?
What great finds have you come across in your thrift store or yard sale trips lately?
Peace & Love,
