Wishcast Wednesday....


Our sweet Jamie has asked us this morning...What do wish to nourish? I could go several ways with this one...it was a rough week dealing with the ex here causing pain for all...but he has gone home to the other coast and we spent yesterday in the woods renewing our spirit..so I think I took care of that one.

You all may laugh at the one I chose... I need to nourish my holiday spirit. I know it is June but...as an artist and one who generally focuses on holiday and seasonal artwork..it is time to gear up for the season and start creating big time.


But..there has been so much going on...I am feeling a bit malnourished. My summer program has started with my daycare kiddos. Last year I overextended myself in a huge way and was unable to find the time or energy to create all summer..by Fall..I was behind the whole season and promised myself I would not do that to myself again. I have chosen children this year that I am familiar with and know they will all function well together. That I will not we worn our physically and emotionally at the end of every day. That we will have fun and a more balanced summer this year for all.


So I am starting to create holiday art as we speak...and feeling the need for an infusion of Halloween to get my juices flowing. So my holiday spirit is what I choose to nourish today.. What do you wish today?
Hugs, Sarah

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. I make our gifts for Christmas, so this is a good reminder to me that I need to start thinking about it now so that I can finish in time!

Oh Beautiful One! What an awesome wish! I totally get this (Shelly had to put up black plastic over our windows last Summer while he worked on his Halloween album so he could be 'in the mood'!)
Here is to you and the nourishing of your most awesome work :)
As Sarah wishes to Nourish her Holiday-Self that her work and art may grow untethered, so too do I wish for Sarah! ♥~S MUAH

I love it, it is so easy to over extend ourselves, and then when we want to create our energy is drained. As Sarah wish to nourish her creative holiday self, I wish for her as well.

Understanding what would help you feel better is a wisdom that is learned. I am still learning it.
My back has been hurting so for a couple days I have been taking it easy. Trying not to use my back.
Other than feeling better I have what is good in my life. Hugs to you.

How amazing ... I was just playing around with a digital montage/self portrait and wondered why i came up with an autumn theme? Hmmm ...

LOVE the scotty ... Halloween is one of my favorite holidays (of course, right near my birthday, so extra special)
