Fashionista or Window Cleaner??


Me washing windows

Yesterday was my 3rd day at a new job. I am now a sales associate at Envy Boutique. I love it there, I am one of those girls who loves fashionl and they have all the latest styles and trends.

Well, anyway, I went to work and my manager asked me If I wouldn’t mind cleaning the windows outside before we opened since it is the big Memorial weekend. I agreed, thinking to myself, I hope no one sees me doing this. What usually happens when you don’t want anyone to see you. You are not going to believe this but the Pensacola News Journal, (our newspaper), comes up to me and asks, you guessed it , if I wouldn’t mind my picture taken. What’s a girl gonna do? ok why not, I went for it, thinking oh well they probably won’t even use this picture. LOL

Behold at 7 am Monday morning , Memorial Day, {the next morning) I get a text, “Great picture of you in the paper today.”

It’s a good thing I can laugh at myself and don’t mind my friends seeing the humor in this. It is not often you catch me cleaning windows!

All I can say is:” you gotta take publicity anyway you can get it!”

 

Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers

Going Natural

All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.
~ Thomas Browne
 
Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.
~ Vincent Van Gough
 

Most people know that the connection between nature and art is very strong. I think most artists go back to nature time and time again for inspiration. For most of us, being in nature is a destressor and very therapeutic. It is a way to “unplug” and see God’s hand in every small detail.

When traveling, I often pick up some small natural element as a memory of a place, whether it be a smooth, interesting looking stone, a feather, an intricate looking fern, or a deceased butterfly.

Lately, I have taken some of my collection and turned them into wearable works of art – jewelry.
