Joy is the feeling of grinning on the inside. ~ Dr. Melba Colgrove
Before I even stepped inside, I was prattling!
“I should have known I’d be met by a riot color outside,” I said to Jackie as she came out the door of her fabric arts studio to greet me. I took a few more moments to enjoy the sight of her fabulous flower gardens.
“Come in!” she said. Once inside, my prattling continued. She probably thought I was a little batty and I was. Crazy about all I was seeing. It was fabulous! Whimsey, color and design mixed with a few wonderful paintings which enlarged the kaliedoscope before my eyes. Everywhere I looked – more creativity. My exclamations grew more excited (and probably more animated!) as I discovered something else I hadn’t seen when I initially walked in. All a wonderful spectrum of eye candy for the appreciator of all things vibrant, stitched and sewn.
By the time I left Jackie’s studio, I felt as if I had fallen inside a paint pot of every color under the sun. My heart was fired up with inspiration.
