- sacrificing for a greater reward
- the "nectar" of productivity
- an organization mindset and its importance
- realizing your personal mission in life

- discovering what you can outsource
...and so much more!
From unexpected fantastic weather to lots of beautiful artwork, days enjoying the people, culture, food, history, and it’s gorgeous land...my recent painting trip to Scotland was filled with treasured memories as well as so much learned. So many new connections and things to inspire new work.

candy colored studio podcast episode #34 - 9/11 reflections from a small wasatch mountain village in the rockies: how to become our best selves
reflections on 9-11 and my desire to teach my children to love our neighbors, enjoy and celebrate diversity, to love all and ultimately, making room for everyone. even in the small rural town of midway, utah, we have our challenges...seeing eachother with open eyes and hearts. can we learn from our mistakes and make our hometowns -- wherever they may be...a better place for all? can we use these experiences to become our best selves? sending love to all!
the painting is called "splendor in the grass" named after the song sung by pink martini (who are my favorite singers sharing world culture and diversity through song). the painting is 30x36" oil on wood and a view from down our street...up top of memorial hill (where you can see a bird's eye view of our sweet valley). the circles in the fields are a tradition but won't be there much longer, i'll be painting to record this place and memory of the shapes in the fields.
Come join us on Midway Town Square Friday August 30th and Saturday August 31st from 8 am to 8 pm!
You'll find me in the same spot as last year B47 (just North of the pavillion)...I'll be wearing a dirndl and one of my artful skirts...oh & braids...can't forget the swiss braids!
I'll have candy colored originals huge to tiny, clothing, purses, scarves, tablecloths, cloth napkins and tea towells (brand new!), prints, notecards, and huge hugs for all!
Looking forward to it! Much love to all!
1. Where to park? - Park at one of the lots and take the shuttle into the square.
2. When to come? - To avoid the majority of the crowds, heat, and strollers lol, come late afternoon or early evening.
3. What to expect? - All sorts of local handmade good and crafts. It's the biggest etsy-like fair in Utah. Local music & entertainment all weekend long (Swiss Miss Royalty performances too). Food! Oh the food! Come prepared for the biggest scones ever, swiss bratzeli cookies, sauerkraut & brats, ice cream & pie, all kinds of baked goods, etc. There is a funhouse area for the kids, and on Saturday morning: a 10K run and parade on Main Street.
4. Participate!? - If you're local, our familiy's favorite thing about Swiss Days is volunteering in the food booths (and our teens/tweens also get to help with garbage duty this year...sounds dirty but it's the coveted volunteer job in their mind!). If you and/or your kids are interested, look for the volunteer tent by the Northeast corner of the Townhall and come join in the fun!
