a lil change

You might have noticed Ive been MIA (missing in action) what has happened is we cant keep up payments on our home so, were letting it go and gonna rent a smaller place. Im not too upset about it . I think its a good thing realy since my art has been in a semi slump. I say semi cause Im still sculpting,just at the rate a snail tiptoes through a salt flat. Being in a new environment and new perspective..something else to focus on will help Im sure..and I have my eye on a place that has a wisteria arbour. *hopes*

A coworker a few years ago dropped me off at the house. We both were vollenteers . Martha had 85 yrs and has since graduated to the next plane. I had just moved into this old house and I was content with my basic little life I told her. She said " just remember things change" Ayup! they did. I started to sculpt shortly after that.

Were packing our stuff. Im leting go of junk I should have filtered out a long time ago.. Like I got rid of my big teddy bear pillow cause I am a big girl now uhuh.^-^ I crave blessed simplicity. lack of clutter and clean open space- to wave my arms franticly.

Even though things seem backwash right now I think the universe must be trying to throw some good my way. I keep meeting people who want to send me gifts. its perplexed me why all of a sudden?
Recently I had my hubby drop off beads in person to a buyer on etsy who happens to live in my town. She gave me some of her sterling silver art as a gift. This large pendant in particualr isnt it gorgeous! I had a blast setting up pictures using our birdbath as a nature set. They looked to me like fairie treasure and offerings. She's plainspirit on etsy if youd like to see her other stuff. Besides the lovely gifts she is also a wonderful down to earth person and I hope this will turn into a longterm friendship.


  1. Nita, I was just thinking about you and going to send you an email - wondering how you were doing.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you regarding the little house you have your eye on with the arbour! Sounds enchanting! Yep - one door closes and another opens!

    Will have to check out Plainspirit's etsy shop - I really like the pendant.


  2. Love the pendant - and wishing you all the best for your next venture...I love moving house - it's flippin disruptive, but exciting too! :O)

  3. Love the pendant and wishing you the best! I know life is unpredictable.
    Hope you get settled soon! Junk Is so hard to part with, at least for me it is. Best wishes :)

  4. Life is a journey and your just moving on to the next plane... you will discover lots of new things and ventures! Hang on to your hat lady and get ready for the ride! It's going to be fun!

  5. Nita ~I'm sorry you have to let go of your home but happy and excited for to moving on to the next adventure...

    I too am getting rid of things... crap that hold me back.

    I hope also you get this cool new home...

    You are not alone in giving up their homes I know 2 friends that are having to do that also.


  6. I wish you all the best in this new fase of life.
    Hope you get the wisteria home.

  7. Hi Nita-

    Just wanted to drop a note and to say "hi" and send you my well-wishes for finding a new home. This could very well be a wonderful turn of events.


  8. Hey Nita,
    Been there and done that!! It was such a great feeling to be able to breath again, starting over with just what I needed. Things got so much more peaceful for me. I know wherever you end up you will thrive!!

    Big Hugs!

  9. You're not alone. I just let go of our house about 3 months ago and am still in the legal process of it all. I still get upset from time to time, but all in all things are much better here. The house we are in now is much nicer then any house we could have purchased. It's much closer to my husbands work and my family and old friends are right around the corner. It even sparked up a new kind of creativity for me and I have new hope for the future. So hang in there. It will all work itself out in the end. Big hugs - Gia

  10. They do look like faerie offerings or lost treasures rediscovered. The birdbath proved a wonderful setting.

    Semi-slumps (or outright slumps) are what shape us as artists. They're what take us out of our processes and our habits and give us reason to rethink where we've wandered to and where we want to go. It's very easy to slip into a comfortable place that lacks the challenges that force our creative energies to work at their fullest potential.

    I'm certain when you set your move aside and return to your work, it will be with a great rush of inspiration.
