I fell in love with this glass piece while visiting a gallery in North Bay and during the drive home couldn't get it off my mind. It was exquisite and breathtakingly beautiful. Why did it resonate with me? There was a vibrancy and energy about this art that was unexplainable just felt. A myriad of colors that made me feel something. Oh the power of color! Thanks to the artist Sergio Golod for creating such a wonderful piece and it now sits on a table across from my piano and inspires me.

To this day, I still love textiles and color and making something from nothing. I have made hats, pillows, curtains, dresses, skirts, quilts etc.
My Grandmother was a seamstress and made me the most amazing dresses when I was little and to her I am thankful for such great inspiration!

Today I am rearranging my art room and clearing the clutter to make room for new projects.
There are too many paintings, frames and miscellaneous stuff enveloping this space. Since I paint/sew/design/write songs etc. this room has to be multi-functional. Ideally would be nice to have a bigger space but thankful to have a room to express my creativity!
Now I have a designated area for painting supplies and paper, an area for sewing and design and an area for music.
Getting there and seeing progress!

I decided to make this wonderful cake with my brand new KitchenAid mixer - a different type of creative tool. It's a real pro-style mixer, powerful but easy to work with. Certainly a new tool to learn how to work with.
Little did I know my entire morning would be consumed making this lovely creation but sure was worth it!
I have never made a cake from scratch and have to admit was proud of how this one turned out. Now everyone here is worried I am going to become a pastry chef...lol.
Each day my goal is to do something creative in some shape or form.
