So, let’s start way back in 2011, if you have been reading my blog, you will know that in early 2011…

    April 13 2015 A Few Nuggets for You SOLD – Happy to be Alive – Handmade reclaimed wood hand-painted sign by Lori Lynn Fell. www.MyPaintedPath.com Lets start with this quote.  “Always find time for the things that make you happy to be alive”.  When I am creating, I get lost.  Sometimes I drift off into a meditation of sorts, other times it quiets my brain and lets me sort out things going on in my life.  Either way, I never feel more alive that when I am in the “zone”.  Remember the sculpture I made as gifts for Christmas a couple of months ago?  Here are two that I have…
