"It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now.
And now is right on time.”
~ Asha Tyson
This has been a transformational year for me. I never imagined that my passion for making quillos would give birth to such creativity. I wanted to share the beauty of a practical art and encourage you to practice creativity in your life.
Let me take a moment to thank all of your for your support!
A Special Thanks to Kelcy
Thanks for the people who encourage the growing process and force us out of our hiding places.
You are one of the people, Cathleen. One of my truly happy memories of 2017 has been visioning with you on my personal and gift quillo collection that you made possible.
May 2018 provide fertile ground for all those seeds to bloom.
My goal in 2017 was to make art every damn day!
I can't wait to see what the creative journey in 2018 looks like.
I hope you will join me.
I believe in the power of creativity.
"I’ve never considered myself creative until I realized that practical can mean creative.
With the great help of of the universe,
I have transformed the sunroom into a room of comfort and joy.
And of course my quillo lives there also.
Thank you Cathleen for becoming the person that you were meant to be."
An Inspiring Poem About Gratitude
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
Happy New Year!!
