Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

Motivation Monday- Setting a Goal

How was your Easter weekend? The sun finally came out for a little bit this weekend and it actually felt warm! I feel like spring is actually here and it's just when I am leaving for a more tropical environment. :) and it's just what I need.  I just wanted to say thank you so much for supporting me on my kickstarter project.  Even though I wasn't able to meet the goal for kickstarter, I learned a lot, grew a little, and pushed myself out of my comfort zone.  Even though I have a loud smart mouth, I am pretty shy when it comes being the center of attention.  I also made some new friends and felt so lucky for my current friends (like you).
 I am happy to announce that I am going anyway and doing the project!  I decided to finance the trip through other means because I think of how invaluable the experience is going to be and that I believe in what I am doing.  Don't worry I still have both of my kidneys.  I am going to be posting everyday (fingers crossed about internet access).   My initial project was to paint in Hong Kong for 2 weeks and use the photos/images of the experience and my work to publish an Ipad/coffee table book.  Now I am going to Hong Kong for 2 weeks, then Singapore and then Bali!  I am going to take lots of pictures and paint a lot.  My husband and I made a rule that we have to at least try everything.  Yes we are trying those 100 year old egg, turtle soup, snake soup, and maybe bugs.
Creative thoughts and motivational thoughts you way this Monday!

your trip sounds even better! money should not be an obstacle for your creative life unless there are really no other options. i'm so glad you are still going and wonder if we'll be able to by the ipad book, etc. when they're done?
