Color me happy

April 17th, 2011 by zoe No Comments

There are things you love and things you L O V E.  In the bones I mean.  Like a moth to the light – that’s me with color.

This week in the studio I have got a whole lotta color going on.  Perhaps those firery pinks could give a bit of warmth because the last fire has been burned in the wood stove because just like poor Mother Hubbard the woodshed is bare.  So mother nature in case you were wondering I would gladly take some brilliant yellow daffodils, lush grass, 70 degree days and porcelain pink magnolias up here in the Berkshires ….. NOW.

What children can teach you?

April 11th, 2011 by zoe No Comments

What can children teach you?  This week my boys have conquered much, they have jumped into new things, and have  literally fallen, brushed themselves off and tried again.  I am trying to follow in their example as I too try new things.  I went to a HOT yoga class (at 7am!), with much hand holding from a wise friend, and loved it.  I also began a new big project out in the studio that involves me  dusting off my rusty metal smithing tools AND  finally figuring out how to carve and design jewelry in wax.  I can’t say I am loving it but I will say I am absorbed by the challenge, encouraged by the puzzle and inspired by the act of trying something new. Reminding myself to keep growing.  Oh and I made and sewed up a new little pattern, soft and cozy cashmere baby pants. All in all a wonderful week.
