Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

My offering for the Famous Women ATC.....Eleanor Roosevelt. I ran across a quote from her almost a year ago and it really made me think, and it has inspired me and continued to motivate me in my journey of change in my life. This quote could have saved me some serious time in the therapists chair ten years ago! In fact this quote made everything that man tried to explain to me make sense! Ok, ewwww this is getting to serious, so I will lighten it up with a little humor, at least my hubby and I laugh about it......not too long after I stopped seeing my therapist we saw him on the news......he was involved somehow in the stressful, huh? We joke that by the time he got done with me he needed something less stressful! Okay, okay, now back to the more serious stuff.....My hope is that this one little quote may find its way to someone else in need of this bit of simple wisdom and change their life as well. May that person find the courage to stand up and say I am not going to take this any more, I am not going to play the victim any longer, and I deserve ______________________and I am worthy of _______________ and I am a ___________________person. (fill in the blanks with what applies......I finally have been able to do it!) May you learn how to F.L.Y. (finally love yourself) Posted by Picasa

Oh Man- I loooove Eleanor R. Now there is a woman we could, should and would model ourselves after. What a wonderful, smart, independent, perfect person! And she put up with FDR all those years and did it with grace. Well, when I was in college, their Hyde Park home was not that far away. So, one weekend I went to see it. You know how some things just stick in your head for some reason? Well, in the museum that they have built on the grounds there, were all of Eleanor's knitting needles. Lots of them! I knew there was another reason why I liked her! A fellow knitter. They also had silly things like her old charge cards. Anyway...She is someone whom I would aspire to be and be like. What a woman!
