Where I am at today, is where I am supposed to be.

Nothing feeds the center of being 
so much 
as creative work.

~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I've been thinking a lot lately about this process... this artistic journey we are on. 

So I'm jotting down some artistic ramblings today...
(heart thoughts...)

where I am at today, is where I am supposed to be~ 
even though there are so many parts of myself that feel 
like they are being pulled in different directions.

where I am at today is where I am supposed to be~ 
even though, I feel like I am not doing enough to make more happen.

where I am at today is where I am supposed to be~ 
because I know that I am one who believes in "trust"~ 
trust in the process~ 
trust in the ONE who gives me all that I have.

where I am at today is where I am supposed to be~ 
because I know that there is growth happening
because I've always believed that dreams 
are made to be sought after
because the soil in the garden has been tended to 
and is rich and dark and fertile.

I am where I am supposed to be...
So a few new pieces and some exciting news...
I made these new designs for a little gift shop 
that has taken me on consignment. 
This is my first consignment venture and 
I am doing a major "happy dance."
It's a beautiful church store in Westlake, California 
with a lovely proprietor.
I created a line of pieces that are Spring like, 
softer in color and can be personalized for Weddings.

St. Maximilian Kolbe Church of Westlake
My pieces are at home in this beautiful place...
and I am where I am supposed to be.

  4. Valerie, these are beautiful thoughts and I know what you mean. This is an exciting journey, and sometimes we have to slow down a little bit as well when life throws a few stones in our path.

  7. Valerie, your thoughts on "process" were just the encouragement I needed today! I often become impatient, just wanting to "arrive" somewhere as a person and as an artist. But it's really all about the journey, isn't it? And thank you for visiting my blog this week and leaving such a sweet comment!
