These chairs have nothing to do with Spring Cleaning except that I found this cool photo while cleaning and sorting my shots from Manitou Springs, CO. I took this in the yard of a cabin we stayed at back in 2011. Those chairs are sitting along the river bank, and they spoke to me. More about Manitou Springs in a minute.
All things change – and things go right ahead and change without you if you are not looking. Somehow, my website just grew all these parts until even I couldn’t tell what was going on there. This is not the nicely organized home page I had a couple years ago. In fact, it’s a mess . . . So . . . I had to clean it. The idea is to be SIMPLE and make it easy to find things. So, I did this . . . Please tell me if you think this home page makes it easier to know what is there – at a glance?
Also, please tell me if you think anything is awfully wrong with it.
It is not totally functional, but I am showing you anyway.
I am also cleaning out my mind, and you will hear plenty about that as we go along.
I’m changing lots of things that I do. One of those things is that I think something has to be all perfect and finished before I share it. Things never get all finished, so I don’t post as much as I want to.
So, I am showing you my new home page before it’s perfect. I, personally, am really interested in artist’s processes – the way they slog through whatever they have to do, to do what they do.
I even like to hear about failures – lessons learned by doing things the wrong way. If we all weren’t pretending to be perfect, we would all learn a lot more.
But, I digress.
What about Manitou Springs?
Well, as I think I have mentioned before (like in this post), Manitou Springs, Colorado is one of my favorite places on earth. And I like to take my art journal and my art-journaling friends to my favorite places on earth. I have therefore added a new art and travel journaling retreat to the roster . . . I found some lovely affordable lodging, and ALL the details (plus pictures) are on the description page here:
I am very excited, and know this will be one more of those magic times like the other retreats have been.
In all my life-cleaning, I am dropping lots of things, so the things I love can have my time. I LOVE these retreats – because they are so much fun for me, and because of what they do for other people as well.
Art Journaling can change your life, and that’s no joke.
I am playing with the idea of blogging a lot for the next month.
Do you think you could stand it?
