Sometimes I get paint on things…..
The auspicious beginnings of this blog were in the ruins of my then-known life.
My life melted down at mide life and I, divorced mother of 4 young boys, began the process of reinventing, rediscovering and reinvisioning the future.
The blog name came from my efforts to seduce myself back into painting. It felt like trying to play the piano after 25 years; the expectations were high and the ability atrophied. So I sewed–because I can’t sew, zippers are a mystery to me, thus I had no expectation of success. Quickly, my desire to decorate the skirts overpowered my interest in engineering them and out came the paint brushes. VICTORY!
Join me in the journey. If Life gives you a dirt pile, don’t just plant a garden, cultivate a jungle!!!
