22 days of gratitude and giveaways! Days 20-22!! Happy Birthday Tracy!






Today its Hello from Kyla in Australia, Tracy's assistant/ creative side kick ! 

Tracy is having way too much fun in San Sebastian, Barcelona with her family....that the birthday celebrations began early...Last night! More on that juice later ; ) ..... 



Today, I think its the most perfect time to let the birthday girl know what I am most grateful for and have been grateful for since 2013 ... you, Tracy!  


{Tracy, Mt Urgall, Birthday eve beginnings ; ) }

Tracy, I got to know as a young teenager doing her art lessons in her backyard studio and as a family friend.  That was the first time I was fortunate enough to brush paths with this bright eyed, dreamy woman!
I think we met at a like minded place then, despite being 20 years-plus apart in age and I was just a shy teenager. But i think even then; this teacher and artist planted a beautiful seed in me, that you can pursue art as a way of being and interacting in the world. 

We then re-connected in 2013, I had just finished Uni doing a Fine arts degree and she became too busy beyond her amazing multi tasking abilities and I jumped in, for the creative adventure of learning, dreaming and creating with this talented lady, Tracy.

  Tracy has taught me oceans (in measure) about being an artist; not just about being a creative person... but a thriving,  'create your own' opportunities in paint and life, make mistakes and find beauty in them,  about having fear but creating and putting yourself out there in the world, anyway. About being kind and generous in life and in business.

This lady with eyes and a heart for beauty, connection, culture and humour has been filling up on just that......

Here's the fun she was having last night for her Birthday eve...... 
After Tracy and and Marco climbed Mt Urgall, they traipsed around a castle and finished on a Pintxo bar crawl. 







This special soul deserves all the spice, colour and warm feelings that this world can give!
Happy Birthday my dear friend ❤️❤️

Happy birthday to another July birthday girl! I've got a few years on you but we both have artists' hearts. Today I am grateful for the time and inclination to put my creative desires into action....not a simple feat for a girl who was told at 10 years old to put away the artsy stuff because it was a useless skill! I'm glad I know better in my old age.
