☆ Blue Feathers [Friday Art]


I have had such a busy week, organising, sorting, throwing out, putting things away in their new home...

This week I moved my studio.

It's a move I have been thinking about a long time now.

Something that I was always planning to do when we redid our kitchen + renovated our garage.

One day.

Some day.

While we were away, we stayed with my brother + his family. And we love hanging out with these guys - they are so chilled, our kids play awesomely together (99% of the time!), their patch of paradise so peaceful, our conversations lively +  I love sitting on their back deck + dreaming.

So sitting on the back deck, cold beer in hand, looking over their two acres of peace,  I was thinking some of the dreams that we have been shelving.

To do one day.

Some day.

And then I thought about all the huge dreams I have. The huge dreams we have. All these dreams that we put on hold because we don't have time. Don't have the money. Don't have the inclination.

And the startling thought I had was this:

There were parts of these dreams I had that I could do now. That I could begin right now. Things that aren't dependent on one day. On some day.

It was like I was electrocuted. Such a simple thought. One that has the potential to change everything.

So once we had a day to recover from the long drive home, I enlisted Mac + we moved the studio from downstairs to a sunny room upstairs.

I wish I had done it earlier.

I loved my room downstairs. Loved. It.

But there were always little things that made it difficult to work in.

As soon as my desk was put in my new room. I felt at home. I felt settled.

Mixed Media Journal Page
This is the first new painting in my studio. It was a page in my journal that I had used to wipe ink sprays on in the past + I never knew what to do with it.... until this week!

So I wonder if I am guilty of pushing my dreams to one day + some day, if you are doing the same. And I wonder if there are little things that you can do today to make those dreams just a little bit closer?

Feel free to share what steps you are going to take to move a step closer to your dreams next week below in the comments. I would love to hear what your planning!

And now I am off to measure steps. To make another of my one day dreams just one step closer...

  4. What a great post...YES, there's always the one day, someday! I finally started my web site and I'm working toward my dream every day. BUT I only started a year ago so I'm in the "Why Didn't I Start This YEARS Ago" boat. :)
    LOVE your feathers so much!

    Thanks for sharing :) Happy Paint Party Friday!

  5. Sometimes a dream or an idea needs time to grow, become ready to do....we have a zillion choices to make every day and all of them leads our day, days, months.... :)
    Like your journal page - now it's a piece of art, beautiful!
