What can you bring to the world?

Blogging turned out to be very stressful lately! I started with a free spirit, enjoying the ride and  hoping of course to be read by others fans of mixed media. My mom as been doing a blogger pro course and started two blogs, sos-stress.com and lescheminsdelintuition.com and kindly started to explain me how it all works....because blogging is an art in itself and out of a sudden i lost interest. I'm not using key words or podcasts or tutorials because it takes a considerably amount of time to learn how it combines and to tell you the truth it's boring! I love searching at dawn in flea markets "the object" and bring it back to the studio where he will join others objects still full of dust! But...there's always a but isnt'it? I do want my blog to have success which means being followed and read so ultimately i have to take time to understand how it works. My mom told me who cares about your life? People want to learn new techniques, discover new things...What can you bring to the world? Wow! My mom is a specialist she's a top psychotherapist she knows it all. What can i bring to the world? Is there others girls like me who have an alimentar job, who have a dream but still no guts to live out of it, who struggle not to drown between the day to day life, the grocery store, the kids(if you have them...i have a cat! ) oh!!!! i forgot being always good humored available for your friends sexy for your husband! Okay we are millions outhere... This year who is about to end (thanks God) is being very challenging i dare say a bit too challenging...for my taste because i fail to have the awnsers yet! Last night i hear Deepak Chopra in the tv questioning the audience:
 Are you happy?
 Who are you? 
What is your purpose in life?
 Do you feel blessed? 
Hope you like my new necklaces?
They have a story these pocket watches...bought them in Chor Bazaar, Mumbai, India.
Will tell you in the next post!
Happy thanksgiving to my heart friends across the atlantic

A working girl...

I realized over the months that i'm struggling to keep up with my blog. I feel that i have lost my voice and have turn it into something politically correct! The true is that i am not a full time artist, dreams to be though, but in the meantime my life consists mainly in traveling around the world. In a month, I fly to 3 countries like Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro and Bangkok, multiply by 11 months plus the holidays it sounds crazy how i can still find energy to create something in my studio! The truth is that i am pretty exausted and can only imagine my friends who have kids because they cannot rest at all.
So my blog till now wanted to related more about my art than the rest of my life and that's where the problems arise! I am a working girl who dreams to become an artists! Like thousands of girls outhere who struggled to keep up with a passion despite the lack of time.
So from now on i will post about my whole Life! Because i only spent 1/4 of my time in my studio.
I have just arrived from Bangkok and cannot tell you how mad i am about the medias. One as to be aware about their lack of credibility. Downtown Bangkok was completely safe. So there were no need for tourists to cancel holidays, the streets were empty, sales up to 80% in the malls... the flood was indeed impressive when approaching by air but it was in the suburbs. Journalists are interested only in the sensational and they don't care about the consequences among the population. I took a thai cooking workshop in the famous restaurant "Blue elephant". Check their website, they have 12 restaurants from Paris to Dubai. Unique! A 10/10.
Have a good week end
