Like most weeks, my studio is a busy place. I would not have it any other way. The need to create is great and I know those of you that design, in all your talented categories, agree. Don't you feel like there is never enough hours in the day to design all the creative treasures you envision when you dream? Each new day brings something new to discover. Sometimes a treasure starts out one way and ends in another. Sometimes, I have to study a piece for awhile as I work on something else. Gazing over at the lonely item waiting for a redesign as I try and imagine, what should you be? How do you see yourself? What sort of new life do you desire in the cottage, shabby, romantic world that I will try to place you in? Who's cottage home will you grace? I just know you want to make someone very special smile. Give a small joy or fill a need for a decorative finish! Team together with other decorative treasures from other artists to achieve that certain cottage look. One never knows how the story will end until the final brush stroke is complete.

I guess these thoughts keep me returning every morning to my cozy cottage studio. So thankful to be blessed in this life to practice an art form that I love. Like my Father once said to me, "Find what you love to do in life, and you will never work another day." So tomorrow, God willing, I will rise again. Get ready for the studio, in which Miss Beazy and I will open the door to another day, another painting adventure and hopefully another dream!
See you again soon ~~ Have a great and blessed day~ Celestina
