Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

A Little Fairytale

Once upon a time there was a girl who had a blog.
She had a creative business too.
She lived in an awesome place where lots of other creative people lived too.

This girl was going about her charmed life with not a care in the world. 
Then a few unfortunate things happened.
These things made the girl step back and think "Oh my. How will I ever keep going?"
In life, however, quitting really isn't an option.
Like a cat, this girl realized she had many lives that could be lived.

The choices before her were vast.
She just needed to embrace them instead of hanging on to the familiar.
Moving forward will be all about change.
New and different.
Starting with the name of my blog and business.
(Of course you realized this little tale was all about me...I mean, isn't everything?)
I hope you, my friends, will stick with me as I make some alterations 
to the biz, the blog and life in general.

Speaking of change, and to prove I haven't been sitting in a corner feeling sorry for myself...
here's a sneak peak at my bedroom redo progress.
Almost there.

Patience my friends.
It truly is one of the most important qualities when things don't go the way you planned.
Lot's to share in the future as I make my way in new ventures.

How have you dealt with change and the unexpected in your lives?

Yours in bright tomorrows, P.

Summer Thoughts

Slowly moving summer.
That is my wish for these easy going days.
No hurry, no rush, time to think...

Life moves all too quickly.
What blooms is gone in a wink.

Let's take time to enjoy each little pleasure.
Live in the moment.
That said we must also keep up with the daily round of real life must do's.
Anyone out there mastered doing both?
I would love some ideas on living each day to the fullest while still accomplishing all the must do tasks.

I intend to post some of your thoughts in the near future.
New directions, new collaborations, more sharing of ideas...
Time for some BIG changes.
But right now the slow summer day is calling.
How can I resist?

Yours in finding balance, P.

Whats Being Made for City Flea

Our first City Flea of this season is approaching on June 15th.
Frippery will be sharing space with PopgunFlo this time.
We may also have another lovely young maker joining us. 
The more the merrier in this land of creativity.

A bit dark and a lot of light too.

A fine mix for many tastes.

We are having some fun.

Back to work.
Hope to see you at Washington Park on June 15th!

Keep on making, P.
