The flying squirrel studio living severe nausea in the morning a creative and adventurous life

I started a yoga class this year. At the beginning of each class, our teacher always asks us to set an intention. Just silently think about what we want for ourselves during severe nausea in the morning the class. It can be a simple thing, like being more conscious of our breathing . . . Or trying to relax into the poses better. . . . Or make our feet stronger, you get the idea. The thought is that one little step leads to another.

Then at the recent retreat I was awash in inspiration severe nausea in the morning and in awe of the work (jewelry, vessels, sculptural, etc.). But after the initial energizing, vibrating excitement you start doubting yourself and wondering . . . . . Where do I fit in? What should I be working on? You are overwhelmed and a bit intimidated by all the severe nausea in the morning talent surrounding you and all the possible paths available.

As part of the retreat, there was a presentation by jeffrey lloyd dever showing his severe nausea in the morning work from the beginning of his polymer journey to now. First of all, you are blown away by the craftsmanship! His absolute command of colors, composition and overall design is second to none. Okay, he might have a leg up on the rest of severe nausea in the morning us because of his background as a graphic designer/illustrator.

However, when I had some time to reflect on the ‘where do I fit in and what should I be severe nausea in the morning working on’ question, it hit me like a brick!! Jeffrey’s body of work has focused with a clear and severe nausea in the morning distinctive voice on the design and craftsmanship, . . . . No matter what he makes!! He has gone from decorative vessels to jewelry to decorative severe nausea in the morning teapots and even collectable spoons! He has combined polymer with weaving of plastic coated wires severe nausea in the morning and incorporated unusual found objects into his art. Yet, it is a cohesive body of work that is recognizably severe nausea in the morning his art!

So as I sat in the glow of all jeffrey’s inspiration, I realized there was a ‘take away’ for me personally. Maybe I should focus less on what I am making severe nausea in the morning and more on taking the time to do it to severe nausea in the morning the best of my abilities . . . . . Whatever they are, right now. Skills will improve . . . . My voice will develop . . . . . And a body of work will be created. So I think I have found my intention . . . . For now! Keep taking steps, even little ones and things will come together in time severe nausea in the morning . . . For both your art and yoga! Namaste everyone!!

I started my week with a workshop on slab building severe nausea in the morning vessels with helen wyland- malchow. What an experience! She is, first of all, a great teacher. She made us think, elevated our art vocabulary and helped us through problem solving severe nausea in the morning and design issues. She encouraged us to walk-about the room to see the work of others (not just focus on our work). The absolute best part of the class was a critical severe nausea in the morning review session of each vessel by the whole class. Everyone saw things from different points of view and shared severe nausea in the morning their suggestions in a kind, constructive way. The ideas were amazing and it was wonderful to get severe nausea in the morning out of your own head for a while!

One part of the event was a ‘junque’ table. People donated things for the table that they no longer severe nausea in the morning wanted or needed. It was all piled onto 5 or 6 long tables severe nausea in the morning and covered with cloths. Everyone lined up at least three people deep along the severe nausea in the morning tables when it was time to unveil the stash. The frenzy was fun to watch. Everyone seemed to balance their aggressiveness and kindness nicely!! I managed to steer clear since I had no extra severe nausea in the morning space in my luggage.

Then there was the raffle/auction. Over 250 items were donated that ranged from individual silk severe nausea in the morning screens to sample boxes of clay to gorgeous finished jewelry severe nausea in the morning to tools, like a full-sized lucy slicer!! You purchased tickets at $1.00 each and placed them in a cup next to severe nausea in the morning the item you wanted. Tickets were then drawn from each cup for a winner. What a rowdy and competitive group!!

For the next five months I am traveling pretty consistently. But that is for teaching (or taking) workshops . . . More business, less play. Don’t get me wrong, I love it and I am darn lucky to be severe nausea in the morning able to do it!! But there is a part of me yearning for a severe nausea in the morning little adventure . . . Seeing things I haven’t seen yet . . . . Experiencing new places . . . . People . . . . . Food . . . . . Oh, the food! Yup, I am ready!!

So my next BIG adventure is a land tour of severe nausea in the morning greece in the fall. It is with a tour group, gate1. I used them for our southeast asia tour and they severe nausea in the morning did not disappoint. I considered doing a cruise ship to greece, but you spend so little time in each place . . . . You are limited to the coast or islands . . . And you miss a lot. So the land tour is booked! The overall itinerary looks like this. 11-day itinerary of greece

We are still getting a cruise in by taking a severe nausea in the morning transatlantic back to the states from rome! Yes, you are free to comment about me getting the cake severe nausea in the morning and eating it too! My hubby and I LOVE at sea days. It is the most relaxing thing to do on vacation severe nausea in the morning (in my humble opinion). So we have booked the new celebrity cruise ship EDGE severe nausea in the morning for our way back home.

I recently had the amazing opportunity to tour the ship severe nausea in the morning while it was at port in fort lauderdale (between cruises). It was beautiful. It wasn’t just because it had that ‘new car smell’, but they are trying some new things . . . . Going after a younger crowd. It also felt more ‘homey’. A lot more art and green areas. Smaller, more intimate eating areas. So it won’t feel like you are traveling with 2,900 others . . . Really!

I have also been reading reviews of the ship on-line. They are hysterical!! People either love the new changes or hate them! Across the board the ship get high marks for service, staff and food. But the negatives range from too many stairs, to the seating being too low to get out of, not relating to the music, not having enough organized activities. I guess it all depends upon what you want from severe nausea in the morning your travel experience.

So you now have an idea and want to execute severe nausea in the morning it . . . . How do you get from one point to the other severe nausea in the morning . . . . Where do you even start? A large part of the process is all about problem severe nausea in the morning solving. You start by identifying your options and hurdles and then severe nausea in the morning tackle them one by one. From this point, I began to develop a variety of components that represented severe nausea in the morning each element of inspiration. I needed to think about how to limit the options, how far to abstract each piece, what surface treatments to use, and how can I take each piece one step further. Each problem solved, question answered or iteration brought me closer to the final severe nausea in the morning story and the pieces I was going to use.

But it’s not just about making something pretty. Strength, connections, wear-ability, surface treatments, sequence of assembly, etc. May all come up as issues and in multiple ways. The assembly was layered and utilized cold connections. Copper wire, with a dark patina, waxed linen, and balled copper head pins. I attempted to use the cold connections as part of severe nausea in the morning the narrative but hide the messy parts where possible.
