Didn’t see that coming!

I sold the only thing I had in my Etsy store.  Less than 2 hours after posting it!  I guess stepping out of one’s comfort zone can pay off!

I finished up another little project I had in the works.  It was fun to play around with the colors.  This chartreuse (light moss green) color isn’t my favorite, but I really like the looks of it.  If that color was in my color wheel I’d keep it!  But it’s not!  It will clash with everything in my closet!

I’ll be posting it in my Etsy store later today.

It finally feels right! 

I think I finally found the perfect solution for this blog.  (Shameless promotion of my Etsy  Store )

Please don’t get me wrong, I still love food, drink, and all things travel.  It just didn’t feel right to blog about them.  I hated the time it took away from my adventures and husband (the brief time he is home).  I felt guilty if I didn’t post.  Hated that I felt that way.  But, now that I FINALLY listened to those in my close circle and opened the Etsy store and started brushing the dust off my beloved materials; it feels right!  I blog now to share what I really want to, not what I thought I wanted to.  I LOVE to TALK to people about food.  I have a hard time conveying my passion for food in the written word.  My art work can speak for itself.

So, I’m sorry that you followed this “food and travel” blog only now to have it shift gears.  I can’t promise that I will be strictly sharing my creations in this space. After all, travel greatly shapes our creative spirit.  I brought home a lot of it from Cabo on my recent trip there.  Made earrings because of it.  Matter of fact, several projects have been started because of my travels to Cabo. Travel= inspiration !

I hope you guys stay with me on this new journey of mine.  If you don’t I completely understand! You can’t say I didn’t warn you though…. I wasn’t kidding about the “Crazy Life” part 😜 !  Hope everyone has a blessed weekend!  Back to the studio for me.

Taking steps out of my comfort zone!  I present to you ‘My Bathroom Door’

Remember in my last post I mentioned a project that I made/designed that I was super proud of? One was a barn door for our beach condo. Thought I’d share it with ya tonight. 

Ya see, I done up and told people on my Facebook that I was gonna start sharing my creations with the world. So why not start with something I am very comfortable sharing… I LOVE this door. I can not take credit for actually putting it together. My tools and such were 300 miles away so my friend made all the cuts and actually constructed it. I, however, did pick the wood, designed the door, and treated the wood. It was burned and stained. (I was really going for a castaway feel) I had so much fun creating this project and thrilled with the results.   Dare I say “proud” of it! 
I will eventually put my face and name to this blog 😱. That scares the crap outta me! So sharing my bathroom door is a baby step. I have to start somewhere…. Right?! 
Today I went out and invested in some supplies for my Etsy shop. Just a few knick knacks to get me started. I am still dreaming up designs. I guess the other thing I really need to do is ‘reintroduce’ myself. You all have access to the ‘I love to travel and foodie’ side of me (the original intent of this blog). You haven’t met the “art studio basement dweller” side of me! (ALthough, I have been showing that side here lately) Both actually go hand in hand, but that is another story! Baby steps y’all.  I am out of comfort zone!
