Unfettered Joy

Kelly_Angelovic_January January's Bootcamp assignment was to create a journal with an Edwardian brooch theme. For more jewel themed eye candy, the public gallery is now live--check it out!

There are days, as I wash baby poop off my hands, or help my not-quite-four-year-old regain control after a body thrashing tantrum, when I long to be working more, parenting less. Enmeshed in day-to-day drudgery, I empty and load the dishwasher, again. I pick up their toys for the 10th time that day, and fold another load of laundry. I want to escape.

And then, ever-so-gently, I remind myself that I am on borrowed time.

I watch my one year old as he squeals with delight--he has discovered how to walk across the room pushing a stool. Noticing me, he rewards me with an ear-to-ear, heart melting grin.

Less than an hour later, my daughter does a spontaneous happy dance because I tell her she can wear her dress-up clothes to the grocery store.

How incredibly lucky am I to bear witness to such unfettered joy?

I hug them both, breathing them in and reminding myself how quickly they are changing. How little time, like this, we really have. I count my blessings. And my heart fills with gratitude, that in this moment, the work that I am doing is right here.

And it is the most important work of all.

 

 

 

Pop-Up Holiday Market December 5th!

Deck the DPAC If you missed our sale last weekend (we had a blast!), not to worry. We (my mom and I, plus more than 20 other talented artists) will be participating in a pop-up holiday market. Yahoo!!

Next Friday (that's December 5th), we will be in downtown Denver at the Backstage Coffee Art Gallery (located in the DPAC complex) peddling our wares at the "Deck the DPAC's" pop up holiday market. Featuring metal work, ceramics and glass sculptures, paintings, jewelry, photography, art prints and wearable art, this is a one night only event where you're sure to find that lovely, unique gift.

5:30-10pm, Art Gallery at Backstage Coffee, 1000 14th St, Denver.

The event coincides Denver's First Friday Art Walks, and the 40th Annual Parade of Lights--so the festive energy will be bubbling over. AND...the bar will be open so come out and say hello!

 

 

 

We're Having a Sale!

Luella OpenHouseInvite2014 Last week the kids were sick, and I lost my child care. This week, my nanny is sick and I'm short on workable hours again.

So, I'm going to keep this short and sweet...

If you're in the Denver metro area next Saturday, November 22nd, I'll be selling art prints at my mom's annual jewelry open house.

My mom creates beautiful handcrafted jewelry, featuring bead and metal work. Check out her Etsy shop to see more. Luella OpenHouseInvite2014_2UP_EmVersion

We'll have hot coffee in the morning and bubbly in the afternoon. Come toast the holidays with us, and do a little early Christmas shopping while you're at it.
