The Bangles said "Time, Time, Time...Tickin' away from me...."
Tim McGraw sings "Tickin' Away"... and every day I find myself looking at the clock more often than the day before.
This is NOT how I want to spend my holiday season!!!
So, major mind adjustment today, as I get down to the nitty gritty of designing the setups for my upcoming Holiday Decorating seminar. My new mantra: Time is irrelevant. I am seeking FLOW, that mystical mindset of the etherworld where time, space, limitations, and properties of the tangible do not exist. Today, I will enter into my chosen work with the attitude that I am a channel through which ideas and inspiration will flow from the ultimate Creator. I don't have to 'come up with' anything! I just have to let myself see the possibilities that already exist.
It's quite simple, really: I just need to let the stress go and focus on the fun!
As I work on my themed setups, here's a look back at last years' presentation:
Copper, Persimmon, and Chocolate Brown for fall
(the chocolate-scented candle I used is sitting beside my bed to ensure sweet dreams each night!)
Shabby Chic comes to Thanksgiving dinner, with creamy whites, gold, and sparkle.
A Diva Christmas, with hot pink, cranberry, red, and feather boas!
Hannukah at Tiffany's, with traditional silver, crystal, and blue.
This year I am focusing on three styles:
Contemporary (chic silver, white, crystal - and maybe some very mod black)
Traditional (red, white, green with a Christmas Teaparty theme)
Antique (browns, greens, golds, with an outdoor theme and NeSts!)
So, I am off to pull out boxes, rummage thru decor accessories, and create some very messy mayhem in the process. It'll be fun...
'Cause like I always say, "It's not called disWORK, it's called DisPLAY!" ;o)
