Clearing my head.....


I have had people asking me how we fared through the 
the snowstorm that hit eastern USA..

here, in upstate NY....
we didn't get any snow,
not even one flake!!!


In fact, 
my snowshoes are still in the box!!!


So for now,
I am busy running inside..


It gives me a chance to start my day off 
with a clear head...

I play the music loud!!!

and keep the tv off...


Exercise also helps to combat the potential side effects
 of using my new bread maker...


cinnamon raisin bread is especially delicious!!!

(just sayin')


Another place that helps me clear my head
is my studio ...


which I share with two of my fiber art friends.

It is housed in an old building which was 
a shirt factory once upon a time...


and you know how I looooooove old buildings!!!!



My spot is in the far left corner near the window
that blows and rattles in the wind...


sometimes windows need a bit of duct tape too....

Polka dotted tape, of course!

(I love the sun that shines on my spot)

Sometimes my spot is neat and tidy...



 but
most of the time....

um...



it's not!!!


Over the years,
as my interests have, shall we say, expanded...


I have "collected" many items...


and stuff is stashed everywhere!!!


but
when I am here at the studio...


I forget about my worries, 
my anxieties, 
my problems...


I slap paint around...


swish the water...


cut up fabric...


and just play!!!
