For a long time, I ignored the calls of Ireland. The country across the pond was urging me to visit its green shores, rustic vilages and welcoming people. I have finally answered — and Ireland is never getting rid of me.
Some say I have a powerful voice. While I have been using it since I was months old, I only learned how to use it effectively in my mid-30s. A journey that started with my own personal terrible, horrible no good day.
There are times when I get discouraged with my crafty side. The side that wants to milk paint home furniture or write a mystery book. In my head, I can see the finished product in all its glory. What is in front of me is anything but glorious. I admit. I get disheartened about the creative process. That was until I saw myself as learning the scales for my personal symphony.
We’ve all been there. That point where you have to throw in the towel on a project, walk away and try again. I recently hit that moment on a milk painting endeavor. What saved it from the Shelf of Forgotten Projects was a sideline pass by Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.
