she flies through the air

In Maui, I climbed to the top of a very high ladder, to a very small platform, I stretched way out and grabbed a heavy bar, I bent my knees, someone yelled "HUP", and I jumped from my platform, and flew through the air on the flying trapeze. (I also screamed the whole way).
This was one of the funnest, most amazing things I've ever done, and I highly recommend running away and joining the circus!

 And here is a little graphic I've made up, inspired by my favorite photo, and a quote that I now adore.
And, here it is on some lovely products in my Society 6 shop

i am here






I escaped to Maui for a while, but now I am back. I am struggling to find the time and perseverance to finish anything these days. I have canvas's waiting to be painted, and a quilt waiting to be quilted. I have a drawing class with Jane Davenport calling my name. I have designs half finished, while others still sit in my sketchbook.

I think I need a new plan, a new way to prioritize and make more things happen. I need to start just getting sh*t done. 

And on that note, I'd thought I'd share where I'm at on my 25 list. As I also need to make things happening there.

25 list:
  1. improve my 5k time
  2. Take a drawing class
  3. explore a new city
  4. go surfing
  5. make real hot cocoa
  6. drink sangria
  7. make salad dressing from scratch
  8. Take a staycation
  9. Get a design *out there*
  10. do something spontaneous
  11. do yoga daily for one month
  12. read seven deadly sins
  13. make a fire
  14. declutter studio
  15. slip n'slide
  16. paint a big canvas
  17. make ice cream
  18. clean out my closet
  19. screenprint something
  20. chinup
  21. draw a self portrait
  22. finish my quilt
  23. ride a bike
  24. live with less
  25. grow something
Hopefully I'll be back soon with some lovely things.
