the artist’s life

oh wow it’s 7:29 am already! good morning guys, I hope you had a glorious weekend! my new ‘cfo’ is en route and will be here in the next couple minutes. that means no time for play and blogging which i’m squeezing in to the very last sec before she gets here. i went to pinterest for a quick burst of inspiration and this is what was up front an center. i’m not an artist in any way but then again aren’t we all creating our masterpieces? well, i’d better hop to it. there she is! have a great day!

working from home

is she texting?

hey guys, happy saturday! how’s life? i hope your summer is in full swing.  it seems like forever since i’ve had any time to myself till today. it was a week of learning curves. we’re putting systems in like quickbooks  and streamlining  everything in the company. i’m leaving town in a few weeks for a month and have a couple great gal fridays who are working on everything from bookkeeping to shipping, candy and cris. i’ve been a one woman band for so long i had no idea what a blessing the help would be.  it’s been incredible to have them around but  it’s been non stopWoRk!  but that was then and this is now. it’s been a great morning  lounging in bed and watching my dvr guilty pleasures…but alas now it’s back to it.   just wanted to stop by to say hi and wish you a wonderful and memorable weekend!

sunshine on my shoulders

bonjour tout le monde! i hope day is winding down to a warm dusk evening for you. i’ve been trying to manage my time better and got this message in an email this morning. it’s from a great site that my client in nice told me about. so subscribed to their daily thought and this was today’s. just wanted to share it in case you struggle with this too!

Your time is a perceptual thing, and even though the clock is ticking the same for everyone, your alignment affects your perception, as well as the results that you allow.

As you observe the enormous differences in the effort that people apply and the results they achieve, you have to conclude that there is more to the equation of achieving than action alone.

— Abraham
Excerpted from the book “Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth & Happiness”

hhmpf. so when i got a comment last night from the lovely m-t, i had to put the excel stuff down tonight and make way for that creative time (ie blog time)! m-t bestowed me with a blogging honor, the sunshine award! there is a catch, with rules to follow and answering a few questions you may or may not care to know about me. so thank you  and before the whole thing in  ends up in my jungle of an inbox, i’m taking the present moment to sit back and blog blissfully. so here goes:

Each recipient must do three things:

First, thank the person who sent it to you.

thank you so much M-T! it’s been a long time since i’ve stopped by and there was so much delicious information in your posts, on your sidebar, your tips, pics and inspiration that i will get back to when this finished.  you gave me more homework but it’s for a good cause, spreading great blog buds and visiting old friends.  for those of you who don’t know m-t, she’s a brilliant consultant who helps define and refine one’s style. check out her fabulous blog, the french touch.

Second, you must recognize 10 other Bloggers for the Award and link back to their sites.

i love you all so instead of choosing faves i’m linking to those who most recently left a comment. it’s a good chance for me say hi so it’s already a win!











bonus! i picked up this great new blog from one of the links at mt’s site:


i hope you head over to these amazing blogs and enjoy them as much as i do. bon blogging!

Third, you must answer the following questions about yourself.  oy, if you really want to know. i’ll make it brief:

Favorite color?  all shades of bluegreen

Favorite animal? baby animals!

Favorite number? my birthday’s the 7th

Favorite drink? good h20

Your passion? archeology, the boudoir and saving the world!

Giving or receiving presents? please…!

Facebook or Twitter? they both  bore the h%# out of me but i’m sure i could be using them better

Favorite day? any holiday with my family

Favorite flower? gardenia

well, that’s a wrap! dusk has come and gone and i’m gonna squeeze one more hour out of this day to absolutely nothing.  bonne nuit cheres amis!
