Sept. 29, 1965 - January 3, 2010
Oh how I miss her laugh, her salty tongue, her humor, her whinny tone when things did not go the way she wanted, her creativity and her love of art. She was a force to be reckoned with and I will be forever grateful for the day that she commented on my blog and came into my life.
Tee was not just brave, dang, the girl was just fearless when it came to art. There was nothing that she did not want to explore, be it paint, paper or both. Hence the name of her blog. She attacked it all with gusto and enthusiasm. I miss that.
On most days, I'm not sure about the direction of Paper Cowgirl anymore. I'm sure I'm not doing what she would have done. I'm not sure that I really want to carry on with it. But I am sure of this, she would want us to stay curious, to stay creative, to be passionate about what we love to do.
And if you have not found what you love, search for that tiny spark in your soul and fan it. Let your creative passion begin to burn. Be curious and find your spark. Tee would have wanted that.
I want that for you as well, for there is nothing so satisfying as creating. Be it words, food, crafts, art, music, or a story...just nurture your creativity. Find a class, watch an on-line tutorial, step out of your comfort zone. Don't just pin....do.
In little ways and in large. Its not always about creating, sometimes its just in the way that you look at things. And though the phrase is overused, yes it is thinking outside of the box. Look at your world with new eyes. Be curious. Tee always was.
Tee, I know, somewhere in heaven, you are creating like mad. Oh my friend, how I miss ya and love ya.
You left us too soon.
