I decided it was about time to get out and see the world again.  I've been in the house for 4 days.
This cold wintery weather makes me want to hybernate.   I told myself to get up , get dressed and GET GOING. 
As usual, my mission was to visit a store that had something artsy and inspiring.
After going to the bank and having them count my hoarded change , I ended up with an extra $80.00 in my pocket.  It was buring a hole.
 So, off I went to Geneva to visit the  "Designers Desk", a needlepoint store with hundreds of painted canvases and  racks of beautiful colored fibers.  After browsing awhile, I managed to buy a canvas to work on while I'm traveling..  This should be a challenge because it's a blank piece.  I have to take the chart in the book and transfer each stitch to the 18 count canvas.  There went my money again!
Retail therapy is good for the soul!

I'm thinking about the new year.  I want to focus more on selling my artwork.  I have boxes filled with all my finished art projects.  Need to start letting go of it.  It's serving no purpose hidden away. I'm hoping someone will appreciate it.  I have to think of a way to go about it.  I've been procrastinating  about doing this for years. IT"S TIME!!!.
