End of Summer

Even though it is officially the end of summer, it still remains hot here in Virginia through November. This weekend we spent a night at a local state park. I never even new this place existed and it is so close to our house. Another couple go here every year. Even though we spent only one night, we had a great time. We went on a bike ride and discovered a peaceful beach. At night we sat around the fire with drinks and good convo. We decided that every year we are going to join them. It is a nice paradise get a way so close to home and very inexpensive. It is a great way to get in touch with nature, recharge your juices and get creative new ideas. Next week I start my enamaling class. I am going to be creating new designs and finishing up a couple of copper bezels I worked on. This year has really been all about learning and discovering things in the DIY world. I want to learn as much as I can so when I sit in my studio I am armed with creative possibilities. I have so many collection of things that inspire me in binders........I am thinking.......why are they in binders? Out of site, out of mind. I want to put a wire on one wall to hang such inspirations, I want to get a bullentin board to post ideas, reminders etc. So even though it is the end of summer, I already have new beginnings starting. With the end of each season something new can be born. Kinda like shedding old skin. Yeah!
