Coming back to my real world after being away at Art and Soul this quote a co-worker forwarded to me is a great one.
"Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."
Don't count your years, make your years count.

Hi, Melissa. Nice to meet you. I've gone to Art and Soul in Virginia--loved it. I took the Totally Tiarra class from Sally Jean. I'm hoping Santa Claus will bring me my own soldering iron this year! I have two cats too, Eliza Jane and Abigail Louise.

I wandered over to your blog. Found you on the 2009 One World One Heart Giveaway site. After watching the movie Julie and Julia recently, I've decided to try and go through the ENTIRE OWOH list, from beginning to end, in 90 days and connect/reconnect with all the artists and blogs that truly inspire me! Your blog is amazing and really resonated with me!

A bit about me. I'm a mystery writer, jewelry artist, and college professor. Yes, and a Gemini, if you couldn't tell! Here is my blog, where I blend my mystery writing and jewelry craft:

My first mystery Keeping House: A Madame President mystery just came out on Amazon.
Take care and as Julia Child might say, "Bon Blogging!"
