Getting back on track,
after a few weeks of nuttiness.
Looking for a bit of inspiration today,
and remembered this bird I made in December....
Sorry for the head tilting exercise.
This little bird is now at a store in Naperville called Little Luxuries...
I love the frame...from the store.
It's reclaimed barn wood....
My friend Donje and I were having lunch.
We wandered into this beautiful store.
I could have moved in.
Many a day I'd like to!
I found this cute little e.e. cummings quote and many others by the cash register.
I lost myself in the words for a bit,
and spent a long time completely absorbed.
The owner asked what I was going to do with my ever-growing pile of quotes.
I told her I'd been making birds from old books, lace, and quotes, and these were perfect.
She asked if she could see my art.
I thought for a minute, and realized she could.
On my phone.
I loaded up my blog.
She liked what she saw, and took a chance on me.
She gave me a box full of frames to fill with birds.
She asked that they be in her shop for Christmas.
I walked to the car carrying my heavy box of frames.
Glad I went out on a limb and shared.
Grateful for the chance this storekeeper took.
I think these birds are still there....
I'm going to get back at it today.
Cutting little pieces.
Giddy to have a little time to myself.
Thankful for some time to myself.
