Dealing With Life’s Lemons

As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, I have enough lemons to make barrels of the stuff, but I prefer gin!

I won’t go into details here, but things have been stressful in my world as of late, and I haven’t had the brainpower or desire to post anything. Those who are close to me know the story and have given me lots of support and laughter.

It’s times like this that I’m reminded of how truly blessed I am. I have a terrific, supportive husband, a great sister, wonderful family and friends who are willing to listen to me and make me laugh. This too will pass, but it won’t be an easy road to travel. In the meantime, I have a good stockpile of wine and an even better stockpile of love.

But things aren’t all doom and gloom. Steve and I have been working towards the big show in Des Moines and it’s coming up very soon! I’m hoping for a good event since it’s my only official show of the year. If I don’t sell a lot, at least I’ll be fully stocked for my galleries. I keep thinking I should have a private show of my own, but I just don’t have the time to coordinate the darned thing!

I have to get back to work, but I want to end this with a plug to support local artists this holiday season. We’re all struggling, but it’s support from our customers that make our jobs worth doing. Have a great week and a Happy Halloween!
