Do you need any strength? We are in the second week of flying lessons and I could use some strength right about now. My head is swirling with all of the info we are learning. Websites, blogs (considering a template), facebook(just made a fan page here), twitter (do you tweet?). And it is only the second week! This class really is great but I am going to need some time to digest it all. Many small steps to be taken. I know that is just the way it has to be but somehow I feel like I have to do it all. And that doesn't even include making any art. :) I am still trying to update my side bar! ha. I will get there I will!

Friday I am going into the city. NYC. It is has been close to 5 yrs. since I have been. Having 2 kids in those 5 yrs. didn't allow for such a trip. We aren't so far in miles but I like to take public transportation in and that isn't so convenient. But I am really excited to get inspired with stops at some great shops and of course just from the vibe on the street. I will come back over the weekend with some photos.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

P.S. Thank you so much to those that chose to follow again!

Dana, how cool! I've never been to NYC. Are you taking a bus? Forgive my bus-loving-dorkiness, but that's so cool. Wishing I were going along!

I'm taking Flight Lessons + trying to absorb it all in too. It's quite a lot. The library has a few books on our list that I'm going to grab.

Have fun + relax your pretty self! I LOVE your new paintings!!! and blogspot :D

Hello Dana,
It's so funny because I live in Hackensack NJ and i have two little girls. We live so close to the city and it's been way too long since we've been too. I'm taking Kelly Rae's class as well, there is so much to absorb but i'm really lovin it! I'm really bad with all of the technical stuff, I just want to paint and play!

Have a great will be so full of life when you return.
And yes....all that social media can be a little mind boggling. And you're so right--that we have to make time to actually create too!

Hello Dana,

How funny what a small world. I didn't realize that you won my giveaway, very cool.
I would love to do an interview , just let me know. Thanks for the info on the blog template. I think i'm going to hire someone to do it for me and use it as a website too. I just keep re-investing my profits from etsy and street fairs to try to make my business grow. Hope you had a magical day in the city!

Hello, A fellow flyer here. I am in awe that you are able to keep up. I am still on week one and it is now week 3, lol. I decided that this is definitely something that I have to do at my own pace. To much too fast is a bit overwhelming to me right now. I hope you have found your strength :)
