Patti Edmon Altered Attic

Monday, December 27, 2010

This photo album was my last creative output before Christmas. It was a commission, for which I am most grateful, and the last in a series of have-to projects that, along with the rest of the seasonal duties and festivities, left me a bit, well, uncreative.
I'm sure it's still in there somewhere, beneath layers of exhaustion, though a break is certainly much needed and will hopefully be restorative. I haven't cleaned up the mess. Yet. The entire house is oddly rearranged with clutter and goodies amid the decorations; there are two teenagers upstairs that don't know it yet, but today we are going to restore order.

Then comes the cleaning and organizing in my studio. A fresh start... yes. I believe that is what we are granted every day, but especially when looking toward a new year. I haven't made a list of resolutions but when I do, they will be very different from those of years past.
Whatever this day finds you creating, clearing, renewing, I hope it is calm, mindful and blessed. Happy Monday!

I'm so sorry I didn't get here sooner to wish you a Happy New Year. Like you said in your post, life gets in the way of plans. Here's to a pain free year (wouldn't that be the best gift EVER?), fun, good health, and art. Best wishes for 2011, dear friend.

What a wonderful looking album and so glad you completed all of your "must dos" for 2010. That is the beginning of feeling great! Best wishes for a super 2011- with lots of creativity, organization :), good health and joy!

You do beautiful work, Patti.

The new year is over a week old, but I still wanted to stop by and wish you a happy new year and thank you for being here.

Here's to a sense of renewal, in what ever form it takes. I know I have tons and hours of work in the organizing and moving stuff around department - enough to overwhelm - so until that can even begin to happen, I'm simply working on the resolution of change in outlook, and truly living the good old Serenity Prayer of accepting the things I cannot change, until and when I can change them.
New Year blessings to you - may it bring you fulfillment of dreams, and renewed healthful energy.
xoxo K

love the newest journal. this is just lovely! the blue is such a happy hue!

i'm doing the cleaning and organizing thing now too. after being sick for so long i can't stop -- not sure why, but i'm certainly not complaining.
