Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!


Dear friend,

The beginning of a new year is a good time to think about what we want to do with our lives. I am personally excited to begin 2013 by opening the doors of Art is a Way. From this new home,  I will be giving my best as a creative person and as a human being. I built Art is a Way to make your life and my life better, even in a small way.

I believe that each of us has the power to do positive things, for ourselves and for others. I also believe that most of the things that are positive and meaningful have to do with creativity. Nature itself is a continuous creative miracle and we are part of that miracle.

This year let’s use our creative energy wisely. Creativity is living our lives with purpose, it is using our individual talents proactively and it is doing our best in all the areas of life. Let’s be flexible, adaptable and courageous. And let’s stay connected to ourselves and to each other.

Art is a Way will be here to bring a ray of sunshine to your days. I am looking forward to a year full of surprises, friendship and creativity.

Happy New Year!





  1. Oh happy happy new year Elsita! I’m sitting in the dark on my verandah in Australia on a hot night. All the windows are open and I can hear my family laughing in another room. I’ve been so eagerly waiting for new year to click over in your part of the world, for the launch of Art is a Way- because I was sure it would be something wonderful AND something I could be actively involved in. The site is beautiful! I am totally inspired to get going with you. Thank you wonderful woman.

    • Dear Nicola,
      Here I am on this other side of the world, in Harlem, NYC. I just woke up, it is 6:06 AM and everyone is still sleeping but I feel like jumping. I am so excited to read your comment. It’s is the very first heartbeat of Art is a Way. This place will slowly come to life, one heartbeat at a time. I built it with much love and I cannot wait to see it grow little by little. Thanks a lot for stopping by and Happy New Year!
      Elsita 🙂

  4. Happy New Year Elsa!
    This is so exciting! I love your other blogs too, (you inspired me to start experimenting with papercutting) and here I’m busy exploring like a child in wonderland, through your magical work and resources 🙂 You are such an amazing inspiration, like a creative battery charger and I can’t wait to see other people get involved, including myself! Good luck and thank you, you are sooooo lovely!

  5. Thank you Maayan! Me too. I cannot wait for all of us to get involved with Art is a Way little by little. There is nothing that I enjoy more than enjoying the growth that comes from human connection. Happy New Year!

    • Thanks for your words, acornmoon! Right yesterday we decided that the most positive person in our family is Diego. We were out here in NYC, walking in the middle of a crazy crowd, literally hundreds of people. Natalie and I and Bill start saying: This is crazy! This is too much! (it was overwhelming, I was afraid about Diego feeling claustrophobic) then Diego joins us and says: YES! THIS IS TOO MUCH!!!!! TOO MUCH FUN!!!!!! 🙂 We all started laughing. When it comes to positivism Diego is our master 🙂 And Happy New Year!
