I haven't posted on here for a little bit because I've been so thrilled and happy and content. For me I guess I like to write or vent if something is tough or I get more introspective if I'm down and think of writing. While I'm riding this happy train, I wanted to share some awesome news.

My mom invited me to go on a trip with her to the AQS Quilt Show in Paducah last week. I was really excited to have a day for just mom and I. It had actually been over a year since that happened. My sister came home and I have my 2 year old with me if ever I go see her. So this was really good for us.

We had a two hour drive there and back to just talk about things. It was so refreshing. She was so encouraging to me. I got to see the world my mom had been immersed in for the past couple years. Her and my stepdad quit their jobs to pursue her dream of being a threadpaint artist. This is painting with thread. The technique. She had a blog of her own HERE.

It was so amazing to see her associates and how she inspires people she is around.
All the people we met were so fun and sweet.

When we went to lunch with one of her associates, they were brainstorming future projects. I was so inspired. My mind was really alive and passionate in that environment.

All of a sudden my mom and I were brainstorming an exciting creative project for ourselves. We can totally do this. We spent the drive back just figuring everything out and coming up with ideas. Then we made plans to meet to do a business day.

The black cloud is gone. I had this creative block for such a long time. Gotta go!
