Comment on Five Year Plan? What Five Year Plan? by Jessyca Holland Mon, 03 Mar 2014 19:33:25 +0000 Any great plan gives room to be responsive and flexible. Keep honoring the process. You will never plan out every piece of art you will ever make. But being recognized for creating jewelry that are works of art is a (worthy) goal. :)

Comment on Five Year Plan? What Five Year Plan? by Sandra Hughes Mon, 03 Mar 2014 02:32:06 +0000 I love the way you describe the flow of your work and how comfortable you are will your own processes.
The pin with bead is unique and remarkable.

Comment on C4ward March Blogathon Day 1 by Amy Larsen Sun, 02 Mar 2014 01:58:02 +0000 I identify with your statement about creating things with your hands because you CAN’T not do it – me too, crocheting, gardening, baking, — but ART (painting and drawing) is what really makes me the most content.

Comment on Donovan by Joanne Thu, 12 Jan 2012 19:47:46 +0000 I would have done exactly the same, no question about it. I have seen animals be put through months of suffering just to delay the inevitable. If there is no ‘quality of life’ (i.e. unable to do what the ‘animal’ enjoys, the animal not eating, the animal suffering physically) then it is much kinder to make those last weeks, days or moments very special, until the time comes to tenderly and gently say goodbye.
Donovan was very lucky to have such a loving Mommy, and I only wish all animal owners would be this selfless.

Comment on So I CAN Knit by Gary Thu, 10 Nov 2011 17:04:39 +0000 We can be our own biggest obstacle.

I had the same problem for years in school. “This is too hard. I’ll never learn this @#, er, stuff.”

One day my father told me his approach. Unfortunately, it was long after my academic career was over, but it’s helped me just the same. He said his approach in school was, “I can learn this, if you’ll show me how.”

He probably said it to me when I needed it, but I was either parent-deaf or was more likely drowning it out with my mental, “But I caaaaaaaaaann’t.”

The most important words we ever hear are the ones we tell ourselves when we’re by ourselves.
