Perfect women are flawed, too

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

I don’t know about you, but from time to time, I hear the phrase……”Wow!  She sure has it made”!  Does anyone REALLY have it made?  The answer, of course, is no.  We see only what others allow us to see, unless,  you talk about “names” in the news – celebrities, politicans, and the like whose every move is documented by investigative individuals seeking explosive material.

I was struck by an article I recently read online, an excerpt from Mike Brzezinski’s memoir All Things At Once.  You may know Mika if you watch msnbc’s Morning Joe on weekday mornings.  You may recognize the last name – her father was Secretary of State under Bill Clinton.  What you probably don’t know is her private struggle to be the good wife, the good mother, the great newscaster, etc.  This online piece from her book is valuable for all of us who consistently try to do everything. Follow this link to see how striving for perfection took its toll on Mika, and what she learned from this experience.  It really is a good read!  I think I will have to get the book!

Uncle Sam X 2!

What’s this?  Uncle Sam X 2?!  Well, it means there are two Uncle Sam ornaments for you to see on the American Holiday Artists Studio today.  We have updated, and here is a pic of my two offerings!

They have sculpted paperclay features on driftwood from the Pacific Ocean.  Stop on by the American Holiday Artists Studio to take a look at all of the goodies for this month!  See you there!

Happy May to all of you!  I know I have been missing in action around my blog of late.  Just waaaay too much going on for one person!  Sheesh!  I am back and will blog regularly – I promise!

Pfattmarketplace updates tomorrow, May 10, at 10 am, Pacific time.  It’s spring, the flowers are popping, and it’s time for bees!  Yes, bees!  They are truly our friends in Nature.  Where would we be without them to pollinate?????  I ask you?  So, in honor of these little workers, I have sculpted a couple of bees for your collections.  Here’s a teensy peek!  Show up tomorrow and you can see them in their actual size!  Please check them out on my page on pfattmarketplace, and enjoy all of the artists’ works for this month!  See you there!
