Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Chinese New Year will be here before we know it! Surely I'm not the only person out there who's been busy preparing for the coming year--the Year of the Ox. Right now I'm looking for just the right ox figurine, and preparing our home for the changes to come. It's been a very busy time, so I haven't done much art. You just wait, though! Once we get past the 26th (New Year's Day!), I'll be busy in the studio!

There's so much change going on right now; particularly POSITIVE change. It feels great; so energizing. I can already feel a shift in our environment.

Just a few days ago, I found the cutest little "money cat" at Pacific Ocean Market. After installing a single AA battery, he began waving . . . "here, money! Come in here!" . . . so cute, so "kitschy" (hey, I LOVE kitsch!). I also picked up some bright red, beautifully decorated New Year's envelopes; which I'll use for friends, family, and coworkers. Now I need to get some bright read string and start tying coins together. Busy, busy!

I'm not doing a whole lot of spending, though. Mostly, I've been busy cleaning the house, moving things around (stirring up that yang chi!), rearranging furniture, checking each room to be sure the energy is flowing well, reorganizing the books in my library, organizing my studio & office, and getting a new haircut/style. Already, positive things are beginning to happen. Don't you just love the science of feng shui?

So, what have YOU been doing to make room for new and wonderful experiences and energy? I'd love to hear from you!

Happy New Year to you! I've been trying to "rearrange" my energy fields also. We got rid of a lot of old paint cans, etc. in the garage at the toxic waste disposal site here in Orlando. I hope we can finish cleaning out the garage and Jerry can put up a light over the work bench so I can do some stained glass as the mood strikes. Next to tackle---my toxic art room. It has way too much stuff I've collected for inspiration. It's hard to be inspired when you can't find anything! LOL

Gayle! It sounds like you've been super busy. Can't wait to see photos of some of that stained glass work once you get the work bench properly lit. Your art is so colorful--just perfect for stained glass!

Robin, it sounds as if you are doing all the things I SHOULD be doing!

This spring I'm shifting into a different gear, to pay attention to all the projects and organizing and cleaning that needs to be done around my house!

Glad to find you here. I'm adding your site to my blog list!

Thanks, Lynda! I've reciprocated!

It will likely take me UNTIL Spring to get fully organized here. It's nice to know that I'm in good company!
