Embarrassed that it has been so long since I have dropped into my virtual journal but couldn’t stay away another minute. HI! How the “hecka” (as my six year old says) are you? I’ve travelled and returned since we last gathered here. Maybe more than once. Pack, travel, unpack, settle (if you’re lucky), pack, travel. Repeat. This routine has been the nature of my life for too many years to count. It doesn’t appear that this dual lifestyle (living in two places) will change anytime soon. And although I know there are many folks out there who find the idea of maintaining two or more residencies exhausting, I find it exhilarating.
There is too much catching up to do to dive in to the logistics, happenings and studio status, just yet. Computer fritz, computer purchase, data migration, swollen batteries, inconsistent internet, art, and design, etc., are a few of the excuses that have kept me from you so long. But, just because I haven’t been here doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about you. Wherever you are. Often. Rest assured I have not abandoned you entirely. I am taking some time to refine my virtual mission. And I think when all is said and done, upcoming changes will be embraced by many with open eyes, hearts and laptops.
In the meanwhile, know that I am only an email away. I am spending more time creating in the studio and less time on line. The spring creation bug has arrived full force and I am allowing myself to cohabit with the impulses and inspiration fluttering in my yard, studio and life. I apologize for being a horrible blogger. I pray that you will hold me in good graces and look forward to the arrival of new content. As we say in Jamaica, SOON COME…
One Love, walk good, honing…

As you can see it’s been busy over here on the rock. My head is swirling with inspiration, imaginations and images. I am over at Studio Jru again for show & Tell. Participating in this Friday engagement keeps me on my toes and definitely makes me more cognizant of my work/s in progress. 🙂
Thread, needles, beads, findings, embellishments and curiousities are abundant. And I dare not show you a wide angle view of the work area! Scary. But I will be doing some scooping, storing and organizing in the studio this weekend to make it more roomy and bearable. Sometimes I am so overpowered by the muse/s I actually forget where I am and what I’m doing. Moving from skrap to skrap, objet to objet, image to image. It consumes me. Perhaps too much.
Honestly, sometimes I just can’t turn it off. I need to learn how.
Nonetheless, it’s been a relatively productive week. I am gaining momentum and excitement about the potential for said new line of hair adornment/s. I am stuck on the name. I would love to enlist you to help me and give some feed back as to which name you think best suits this pursuit?
So far I’ve come up with with:
blüm by ila blu
flora by ila blu
Of course the blüm is pronounced bloom and flora is pronounced flora.
Which do you prefer? I like them both and think either could work. So???……
I am wishing you an oustanding weekend. I hope you start or continue something you love, preferably creative.
One Love, walk good, gone to get some sunshine…
