Day 182 – I Will Walk Where There Is No Path

Six months ago my life changed drastically. At the time I was working as a software sales consultant. I would read business and strategy books for tips and to keep motivated but my career was unfulfilling and lacking so I picked up a book called Linchpin by Seth Godin – one of my favorite authors. […]

Day 181 – March Madness Apple

I love March. The month starts with my birthday and a new year but that is not the only reason… March holds the first day of spring, St. Patrick’s day, and daylight savings.  With March comes an itching to get to warm weather, vacations, and picnics. After a long winter – madness strikes – life […]

Day 180 – Tapestry

We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone… and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something. Sandra Day O’Connor Until tomorrow! Jenna Day 180 was created in mixed media. An image scanned from a book of […]

Day 179 – All Mixed Up

Some days things are just all mixed up. There are days when no matter how much you work to accomplish your goals – things just get all tangled up and confused. I felt this way today and it makes me so frustrated and sad and confused. On days like this all you can do is […]

Day 178 – Oh The Glorious Apple!

  When people ask me “Why an apple as a symbol for AS Awareness?” my immediate thought is: Oh the Glorious Apple! All these gifts from just one seed, The apple, soul and body feed, Plant a seed and time will show, That from one seed a tree will grow. Oh the glorious apples.  – Bill […]

Day 177 – Saturday Apple No. 3

I had a wonderful afternoon. My girlfriends took me to lunch for my birthday – busy schedules delayed the celebration a couple of weeks, but we had such a great time catching up and laughing and laughing. I’m full of endorphins and love. Thank you Stacey and Alison! Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 176 was created […]

Day 176 – Inspiration Comes In Many Packages

Another day, another apple! I’m not yet half way and I’m looking for inspiration and materials for new apples in any and all places. Today I wrapped up a gift box for my step-daughter Amanda and had a big bunch of tissue paper out. Bright, beautiful, and bold colors that were begging to become more […]

Day 175 – I Will Not Give Up, I Will Not Give Up…

I simply refuse to give up. I’ve given up before and I don’t like the feeling. You try to justify why you quit – you just changed your mind really – it wasn’t quitting. Stopping for reasons beyond your control happens to everyone – myself included and there are reasons to make a life change. […]

Day 174 – I Was Born This Way

I love Lady Gaga. Now don’t get excited. You might hear Lady Gaga and think public displays of profanity and nudity and wonder how I could love someone so controversial. What I love is someone who is fearless in their insistence of being themselves. She is a true artist because she holds onto her vision […]

Day 173 – Pattern Play No. 3

I saw a fabric today that was a simple batik pattern with open soft squares and it inspired me to create a similar pattern as an apple. Batik is created with wax on fabric and then dyed in vibrant washes of color. Hand made batik tends to have no real repeat of pattern because it […]
