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.

Goodbye, again...........

friends just left about 30 minutes ago. i am sooooo tired i can hardly keep my eyes open, it has been a weird day. one friend had some minor surgery the other day and is waiting for biopsy results, another is having a hard time with many things lately, and i want to help but there is only so much i can do.........i only got to see my hubby for maybe an hour today, and we really did not get to spend it feels like the world and i are not in sync with each other here it is about 1:30ish in the am and every time i look at the clock i think about my dad. at this very minute he was living out the last few hours of his life exactly one year ago. after getting a good night sleep my mom and dad were going to go buy the new paint for their living room. they were so excited, they had just bought new leather furniture for their livingroom. for the first time in 11 years they were going to be having turkey day at their house. they were totally changing the way they were going to decorate the house, from passive pastels to wild and bold primary colors, funky art.........

one thing i have learned out of this - is it does not matter what your plans are, how much stuff you have to do when it is your time to go, you go.

for all of you out there that come visit me make sure you:

  • tell everyone you love them, often, just because
  • live your life today like you will have no tomorrow, because you never know
  • do what makes you long as it is moral and legal and you are not hurting anyone.........who cares what other people think, it is your life not theirs
  • don't waste your time being angry and upset over things you can't change or have not control over, or the little things......
  • remember there is always someone out there that has it much worse than you do, so appreciate even the little things you take for granted
  • stop and smell the roses, ahhhh over a sunset, make a wish on a shooting star
  • "be nice to mean people, they need it the most" ( can't remember who said this) you never know what is going on in the persons life........give 'em a break
  • use your good china everyday, wear that expensive stuff that makes you smell good
  • enjoy the simple things
  • i could go on and on and on and on.............i guess what i am trying to say is make the most of your life, live it to the fullest
