thrilling~soaring~on the brink of moments

soar
*my first green bubble tea
*riding on the back of hugh's bicycle... feeling safe, but hoping he missed the potholes, and he did!
*sending out my business registration, pictured above! put an extra stamp on just in case;)
*all these sweet etsy orders and encouragement
*school starting tomorrow... i always get a nervous excited stomach
*hearing jay ryan, a favorite rock poster artist speak, and feeling inspired to JUST DO IT your own way
*getting through my list of 5's below
*escaping with the BBC's Dr Zhivago with Keira Knightly and loving the look of Russian fashion {shallow in the face of the tragic story!}
*peace and quiet! no hammering today in the studio
*sending out my mix to my ladies of the swap and listening to it on repeat... sad & beautiful to me.
*reading the stories of that amazing retreatand dreaming of participating or organizing an artist retreat myself!
*buying my first bridal magazine and getting ideas...wanting it to be still me.
*much talk of our upcoming school show and new blank panels made and waiting.
*QUITTING my job at the restaurant and being pleasantly surprised that in doing so it turns into a curating position for the gallery part of the restaurant!

you know what's a little strange... commenting to myself is... but for the record, i quit my job last year at a different restaurant exactly a year ago. magic.

great list mati! sounds like there is a lot of excitement and opportunity surrounding you. and
as far as your wedding - let it all be you. weddings are such a raquet and i do invitations, but it always amazes me how wrapped up one can get in the hoopla. bryce and i had a beautiful wedding. i walked down the aisle to the beatles [in my life] accoustic. it rocked!

stunning stunning stunning.
so many of your dot points resonate with me today.
* i absolutely dig your etsy store ~ i was miandering through their yesterday in such delight!
* business registration ~ i'm in the process of setting up my own art business as well (www.leonielife.com). isn't it an awesome moment?
* hammering in the studio: mondays are my official studio days and the last few have been disturbed by the sound of neighbours constructing a deck very loudly. i am very much looking forward to a monday art day filled only with the sound of my own music and the brush of paint on canvas.
* tea: on my desk i have some honey crysanthemum tea. first ever. when i finish this, i will go make myself one. first ever. :) i just love firsts!
* retreat: i too am completely inspired and in awe of this. have a goddess retreat planned already in march with friends, am thinking of turning it into a creative, laughing, sharing fiasco of extravagent proportions. :)

blessings to you hon~
love and laughter
