For Jamie, with love

I toyed with the idea for months.
Then Jamie asked for videos talking about what Jamie Ridler Studios meant to us and things started moving.
I shuffled my feet for a couple of weeks.
Then I did what I had to do and talked to the expert.
I had the video recorded last Monday morning. Things were moving once again.
Then I left it in my daughter´s camera and procastinated some more.
Finally my son got his director hat on and made this for me:

Since meeting Jamie I have been wishcasting and making dream boards under the Full Moon. I also follow her Wishcasting journal for a mixed media exploration. I have noticed that things that came up in my boards and wishes finally found their way into my life. We are just back from a trip I wished for back in February. Now I´m teaching my own kids how to focus on what they want and then dettach themselves from the outcome and how to use the focus as an opportunity detector enhancer.

A lot of my creative life took flight thanks to Jamie, including my Artist´s Way project 2011 and being able to put the word "artist" under my name in Facebook.

I also want to thank Jamie for introducing me to many wonderful artists who I can also call my friends now.

And through Jamie, I met you, and many others, as you began The Artist's Way 2011 project! Isn't the Internet a wonderful way to connect with what you need? :)

Yay!! This was a GREAT first video, Paula!! Congratulations! I LOVE the way you worked the independence thing in with your creative independence through Jamie Ridler Studios - very creatively done! And, of course, credit where credit is due - kudos to your son for directing and producing this video!

I am so horrible at keeping up online - but I am so glad I came by and found this, better late than never! It's very cool to see you on video and hear your voice after all this time ... and I love your tribute to Jamie, who rocks just like you do.

You son did a great job too, another creative soul in your lineage :)
