flying high


Today I start a new journey, on a different path than the one I started in November.  One that leads me in an exciting new direction.  Starting today yours truly is the Executive/Artistic Director of The Crossing Arts Alliance, a non-profit in my town that promotes the arts and artists in our area.

You may remember me mentioning before how much I've enjoyed volunteering there.  To be able to turn this love of volunteering into a paid position...I don't even have the words to express how happy I am.  While I'll still be working outside of the home, and away from what I've built here, I get to work at something I'm passionate about...the arts.  The icing on the cake is that the hours I'll work will provide a better work/life balance than the position I've recently held.  I'm a lucky girl.

I'm flying high today, much like the fun frisbee I found in my mailbox (my kids have delighted in flinging my likeness around, by the way).

If you're curious about The Crossing, please take a moment to check out their website or come visit their facebook page (I'll be showing up there regularly).  If you're in the area, please stop in and see me in the office adjacent to the Sales Gallery at the Franklin Arts Center in Brainerd, MN.

I look forward to seeing all of you here more regularly too.
Happy Wednesday!
