Making it Happen....

Do I stay on dry land where it is safe and boring, or do I throw on some water wings and jump right on in to the deep end? I say jump! For the last ten years, I have been in a bit of a cocoon.....creating and selling mineral makeup, and quite frankly, I did quite well. But in the back of my mind, I knew that I had bigger and more creative plans....I knew that I couldn't squeeze myself into one tiny box and be satisfied. Maybe it's some sort of a genetic mutation, but up until recently, I couldn't figure out how to channel all of the creative energy into something other than scribbling in a journal and making list after list of all the things that I would LIKE to do when the time was right. But it occurs to me that there really is no 'right' time, there is only what sits directly in front of us.

1000 Wednesdays is this vision I had of merging the real world with the imagination and seeing what showed up on the other side. It is drawings, and cards, random thoughts and finally understanding that all we really have is RIGHT NOW and to spend one more minute lost in a sea of worry or self-preservation just doesn't seem to make sense anymore. We spend so much time worrying about how we look on the outside.....but maybe that reflection in the mirror would be much comfortable if we paid a little more attention to what is happening on the INSIDE!!!

I invite you to sit back and think about what you would like your life to look like.....what sort of dreams you have dancing on the surface of your heart that you keep putting off until later. If you are happy where you are, then embrace it completely and celebrate! But if you have a little itch that you have been dying to scratch, then I say you throw off the mittens and SCRATCH IT!!!

I am currently putting together my new web site....1000 Wednesdays.....it will be a little creative play house full of inspiration, color and heART... I may not be Picasso, though maybe he had his doubts too.....wishing he could be more like Renoir, but he didn't let it stop him, right? If every one of us looked the same, did the same work, and tried to be like the person sitting next to us then imagine how devoid of color the world would be! The new web site is coming soon, but that site and the work that I will be sharing is a part of MY dream....so if I can do it, so can you! Grab your life by the tail today and do whatever you need to in order to breathe new life into it! The only thing standing in your way is you!!!
I wish you a day dripping with all of the self confidence and motivation you need to take the first step!!!


  1. Dearest Heather,
    I love seeing you so excited about this next venture. All of the drawings you've posted here have made me smile. Keep 'em coming ... because I for one need all the encouragement and humour I can get.
