Time Out

Everyone needs a little break, just to come up for air a little. But sometimes it doesn't feel like that's even possible when everything is happening at the same time. Oh the details... I am feeling buried. I am feeling great. I am feeling manic. So I took a break. (Vanessa made me.)
There is so much I want to tell you about:
My trip to Iowa where it went from Fall to Winter in 4 days...

The boxing match I went to last week...(and I danced with the winner after the match at a nearby club---yeah..I went to a club too!)

The incredible gift that one of my favorite blogger friends, Vana from Le Papier Studio, sent to me just because...she is just the sweetest. She was inspired one of the pictures of Coco's flat in Paris! Fantastic isn't it/she?

And Heidi posted an interview she did with me today,part of her Wednesday Q&A series! I loved her questions! Read it and you can learn what a dork I really am (except when I'm dancing with boxers and other cool cats like that...)
Oh and I have these two sales coming up over the weekend!
And finally, we've already raised almost $800 for the raffle and still have 11 days to go! I'll be selling tickets at Secret Project Santa on Saturday and at The Divine Sale on Sunday but if you want to enter on-line (sorry U.S. residents only...) go here!
Thank you to everyone who's bought a ticket so far! You are wonderful! Keep spreading the word pals!
To ask if there's some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

-Robert Frost

Thanks for your so kind words over at Melissa's... your comment meant a lot to me... and as far as sharing... this is my favorite Robert Frost poem because my grandfather taught it to me when I was little. I have been chanting the the last three lines in the wee hours of the night as I try to keep up with it all. Wierd... good weird! Very significant finding it at the bottom of today's post. Yes, we are connected, my friend!
hugs to you,
maya

Hang in there with all the projects!

Those pictures of Iowa made my heart stop a moment. So, so, so beautiful.

Claire said...

this post somehow made me feel as if i know you a little better than i did before. thank you for that. the iowa photos are beautiful!

the photos from your trip to iowa are so beautiful and i love the boxing pics. i've become quite obsessed recently with watching boxing on hbo. but, there's nothing like actually going to a match, especially if there are some old timers yelling 'pull up the covers and put 'em to bed'.

going to read your q&a and hope to see you at divine studio this weekend. hang in there!

You have an awful lot going on! The interview was great...I liked the questions that were out of the ordinary.

Love that Frost quote...

LOVE the Iowa pics!!!! More, more, more!

Georgia (AKA g-bug) said...

WOW—Iowa never looked so good! Most people would not think of that as a picturesque place, but you have made it so.

and that drawing is amazing! what a gift!

Julia said...

Oh darling! You are swamped with goodies and fun times! I can't believe you actually got to dance with the winner of the boxing match :) Lucky duck! I loved all the photos and glad tidings.

Vana did such an excellent job! How lovely!

Elizabeth said...

SO much going on for you right now, girl! I don't know how you are managing it. Glad to see you're getting out for some fun time though. Sending you good vibes and hoping you're keeping your head above water!

nichole said...

Ahhhh! A girl after my own heart! I adore that Frost poem, and have had it memorized since 6th grade (yes, I am that much of a dork).

Also ... we are moving to Paris! Any tips/advice/connections? I know you are there a lot. ;)

Melissa de la Fuente said...
