Where oh where have I been?

One of our newest packets that we call...

Our "Tattered Treasure" hang wistfully
at our last show and will make the
trip to Cincinnati and Columbus.

Holey Moley Mica Packs
A "one of a kind" Random Arts product.

Actually, I have been right here in Saluda since my trip to Costa Rica in February but I have been really busy with lots of projects that almost seem unending. ( is that a word? unending?)
All the horizontal space in the studio is covered with production materials for the International quilt show in Cincinnati along with materials, supplies for workshops

at Artiscape and assorted goods for sale.... and the list goes on.

This is one of the classes that I am teaching
in Ohio - Elements of Aging with copper patinas and rust.
Yeay, the class is full!!!!

However, I read this entry by Caroline Hatchell on Facebook this morning that seems to resonate with me and makes me step back a moment and take a breath.
"Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life and share with people the same happiness.”
~Kahlil Gibran
And then Caroline posted this:
I think people overlook the joys of everyday happiness, always waiting on some fictional moment of extreme fulfillment, meanwhile there are little joys all around us that go unappreciated...Be content in your life and let others do the same, do not create chaos for yourself or others in the quest for the intangible. PEACE.

Thank you Caroline.
