Yesterday, my business became an official LLC in the state of Oregon! I couldn’t be more thrilled. A professional website is in the works, and I am scouting locations. My partner and I do not expect to open our first retreat until the spring, but there is plenty of work to do until then….and it’s all exciting and lots of fun. I am working on my certification as an Integrative Wellness and Life Coach to go along with the new business.
Meanwhile, a creative spark hit my brain and I have been on a roll in that regard. Yesterday, I finished the underside of the wings on the giant butterfly that I am mosaicing. Each tile is individually hand cut glass and placed by yours truly. By the end of it, I swore I never wanted to see another gold tile! However, I’m happy that it’s done, and will be so happy when I get the body area completed so I can grout the whole thing.
For those of you who didn’t see the other side when I posted it previously, here is what it looks like pre-grout:
And…as if that were not enough, I am on a shrine making kick. Here is a heavy one that I only recently started. Who knows what I will add to it, nor how it will turn out!? This is a very loose rough draft which might look completely different when I finish. I am using hand-formed clay on Wediboard with lots of found objects. Nothing is glued down yet. Just messing around with different design ideas. I will post more photos as the project progresses.
Meanwhile…everything is good in life and in love….and absolutely nothing has changed there. I feel as happy as ever. I hope you do, too! I start training for a new job today that will help me meet my opening business expenses. Looking forward to that as well.
Until next time, I remain….
