“Dreams, if they're any good, are always a little bit crazy. ” -Ray Charles
I am a big proponent of dreaming. Particularly when it comes to creative dreams – either mine or someone else’s. Sometimes you really have to fight for your dream…with yourself, your partner, your parents, your bank….the list goes on. But no one else will fight for your dream unless you do!
That is why I am pretty excited that I am part of the way to making one of my creative dreams come true! Yesterday we closed on the cottage (hence the key!). Here is a picture of it:
You may have seen it on facebook in a recent post, but this is the introduction on the blog. Let me tell you, I did have to fight for this dream. Not super hard, but I did have to fight. I learned that there will always be someone that will not believe your dream is possible, feasible, probable, possible, thinkable….you get the idea. In fact, there may be times that people think you are downright crazy.
Anyway, this is going to be the new home of The Quilted Fish. We are still a couple of months away from moving in since we are doing some major renovations, but I can’t tell you how thrilled I am. This will be a creative space not only for me, but also for people that come to take classes and be inspired.
We will be sharing lots with you about the cottage. We will share pictures of the renovation, the colors we have selected to use on the outside, the fun activities we have planned for the inside. We hope that you can, at some point, visit us here. We would love to have you come by, but we know that isn’t possible for everyone. We will be sure to have videos to share with our long distance friends.
So hold on to those dreams. Remember… “you’ve got to have a dream, if you don’t have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?” –South Pacific
