Juggling...life

























Here's my little Christmas tree this year! My 14-year-old kitty kept eating the fake plastic needle of my big tree (and subsequently, throwing up) that after a week I decided I was done and put it away! I pulled out my tabletop tree with lights, decorated it with a few handmade bulbs and a little bird that my friend made...and that was it! 

Did you all survive the holidays? Honestly, I'm a little relieved that the holidays are coming to a close. I'm ready to move on to my next BIG project: MOVING! We will have the keys to our new space in just a week. It's a little different move in the fact that we are moving withIN the building, just five floors down. Still, I am working at going through belongings, tossing things that do not need to go with us. And my mind is preoccupied with thoughts of how we will organize our new space. 

All of which makes it hard to focus on painting. But to keep my anxiety from making my stomach completely topsy-turvy, I worked in the studio for a few hours this afternoon. I am still trying to finish some pieces and have my eye on a few opportunities to show my work...and of course, the deadlines for those are mid-January (just when we're wrapping up the move). 

Life is a constant juggling act, filled with decisions on what you can and can't do...what you hold onto and what you let go...seldom easy it seems. But always an adventure.

I am the same way. Too many things, not sure what to get rid of, not sure if I want to get rid of. tee hee. Hi just popped in to say hello and hope you enjoyed your Christmas. Don't forget to join my giveaway at my bangles shop. Take care and have a great week.

how great that you are moving to another floor, makes life much easier! I always have a hard time deciding what to get rid of also...I always thing I will use everything at some point in the future, which makes it hard to toss. Good luck with your move.
ps- your tree is adorable, and even better knowing your kitty isn't eating it, lol!

Hope the move goes well - moving is such a great reason to get rid of excess stuff. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. And your tree looks great surrounded by such vibrant color
