Third Time The Charm ?

I have been away from blogging for a bit.  I have been going through this whole "starting over" thing and while its a very good thing, there are growing pains.  Starting over at 53 is not for the faint of heart either.   My new job is going very well, but starting at the bottom again has caused me to have to make some huge and hard decisions.  I just havent been able to do very much creating.  I had made the decision earlier to pull out of two of the three shops I was in.  Then came the hardest decision of all.  I let go of my website.  Of all the things I have changed or given up this was the very hardest.  I loved that little shop.  I had my studio in my living area of my apt.  I was fun and practical at a time when I was creating everyday, but  when I wasnt it was a cluttered mess and a reminder of all I was leaving behind. SO for the third time since I have been in this residence I moved my little pink studio back into the spare bedroom.  Its my favorite of all.  I love it.  My living room and dining room seem so spacious and clean and uncluttered.  I love that too.  These arent the best photos, but you can get the idea.  I am on a major mission this summer.  I am going through every closet, cabinet, cupboard and drawer.  I have hauled out trash, donated and given away quite abit so far. Then when this project is complete and I have a new fresh start I will be back in my little pink studio creating again.  AND I cant wait. 
After all of that work, it was time for dessert!  I get so inspired by Pinterest and love all of the recipes and desserts.
There is lots of painting, new floors and hanging pictures coming up.  I will share any handy tips I figure out a long the way.

Welcome back Gail and you know what they say? A change is as good as a rest. Moving on is always hard but your new work area is so pretty and I am sure you will enjoy the new room as much as the old. Have a wonderful weekend and take care x

Hey girlfriend,

I'm glad you're back, too! It's been quite the year...huh? My husband finally just got a job with Ebay/PayPal and he's ecstatic! He'll be one of their online security/firewall people. I'm doin' okay, still a little shaky, but gettin' stronger every day. I hope we can get together again soon.
