“You have no idea how crazy I am, I should be wearing yellow Caution tape, I’m that bonkers”
Robin Benway, The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June
It’s true. I am Crazy. Most days I just feel like a big ol hot mess of Crazy. I have way too many passions, too many things on my To Do list, too many work hours and clients, too many thoughts; dust bunnies, dirty clothes......art journals, ideas, paintings to finish, diaries, bottles of nail polish and glitter, puzzles I will never finish, flower seed packets I will never plant, travel books to places I may never see.........
Crazy is madness, yes. But Crazy is also fantastic, magical, infatuated, intensely involved and quite frankly, more interesting.
I suppose it can also be exhausting, but Crazy also comes with a good dose of denial!
I would love to see what Crazy means to you.
and our very special guest
