New Blog, New Year, New Life.

Yikes, I've never been all that good with these blogs, but I'm going to give it my best shot this time! I am Heather Leigh, a Wyoming sculptor, mother, girlfriend, daughter and friend, and not always in that order. I hope to use this blog as another way of expressing my creativity, updating my friends on my daily life and maybe post the occasional funny, here and there. Since I have been on Facebook, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many talented artists, sculptors and doll makers that it can actually get a tad overwhelming. I can assure you that all of them have been nothing short of inspiring in their own ways, however.

With the new year approaching, I have decided that I am going to make it all that I can. I have a deep seeded feeling that its going to be the start of a new life for my family and me, especially, and I look forward to it with a smile. I have had it with this economy and yet at the same time, its as if I can see the light at the end of the recession tunnel. I know for a fact that my boyfriend's business will be going through a major overhaul and its something that we need. Most people might consider it a bad thing, I see it as positive change and that we can only grow from here. I've not sculpted hardly at all in the last 2 years, but I've got a mind chock full of all sorts of ideas and that's why I added the label of chrysalis woodlands here on my blog for the new sculptures that I have in mind. *whispers*....It's a secret though, so I can't tell what's going on in there just yet. I am so excited to get started on that project but I haven't been able to do much, just know that I am really working it over in my mind...I can already see the beauty of the woodlands come to life and I will be drawing out some of my ideas as soon as I can so that I don't forget a thing about it. This, ladies and Gents, will be a fun ride in the woods! I have yet another idea on top of that but I think it will fit in with the Silver Spoon Studios header just fine so I will leave it there. That's a big secret too.

As for my new life...well, first, the guys of the house will have to move my studio into another room, hence why I haven't worked for awhile, other then my body not cooperating with me. It would be silly to start a project now when I have others to finish and then have to pack it all up for another move. I know once I am back in the space I was before I moved into the room where I am at now, I will have a better flow of creativity and have more room to move. It's awfully cramped in here right now with all the stuff I have and think I need for my studio. :)

So, I think its time to wrap it up for the night. I just wanted to make a post about what's been going on and the changes that are coming. I look forward to adding a bunch of artists out there to my blog list and getting to know all of you through your posts too. Thanks for stopping by!
