Back to the Studio~ Reflection in a Soap Bubble.

Today it’s back to the studio…Beginning a new calendar always gives me a feeling of a new start–sense of closure to the previous year and a chance to make changes, adjustments, and achieve new goals. This reminds me of being a child beginning a new school year after a  carefree summer break. One time ends, a new time begins, and a transition occurs. With the holidays over and the start of the new year 2012, my schedule returns to a more normal pace. The workspace is organized and ready-to-go. There are a few art quilts to finish, some new ideas to explore, and a plan to re-shoot photographs for my Portfolio and the website’s Gallery page. Spring also brings deadlines for various juried exhibits.

This week Peach Farm Studio nominated my blog for a Versatile Blogger Award and I want to say thank-you to them. I appreciate having Lifeweavings considered. This award is to help bloggers find new blogs. So, while I can’t do all the criteria to pass along this award right now, here is a quick list of some of my favorite blogs to read. You might like them too… (And, this reminds me to update my blogroll/inspiration sites!)


As in the photo above of the vintage English postcard, I may not reach all of my resolutions, or goals, made for the new year, but envisioning things we desire to achieve  helps the creative process…

  and just perhaps some of those soap bubbles will soar and float in the air!

  2. An engaging way to kick off the new year, this post: reflecting on good things (not least of all having received an award–congratulations!) and preparing for wonderful new ones. Wishing you a fine and productive 2012. And I look forward to seeing where it takes you.


  3. Joni, that wikipedia soap bubble would make a lucious art quilt, especially for a baby shower gift! I need to get with you about an Art Quilt, which would include the 12 names of my mother-in-laws children and grandchildren. We would love to present it to her on Mother’s Day of 2012. I will email you, okay?


    1. Images like this one of the bubble are great inspirations for design ideas…and you never know where they will pop up in future work. Your idea for a Mother’s Day gift sounds like one that will be meaningful and appreciated…(although currently, I’m not taking commissions at this time.)
