What is ArtsyBE?

 "I want to be artsy like you," ~Beth 9/8/10

artsyBE defined

artsy- enthusiastic about, making a strong, affected, or pretentious display of being artistic

or interested in the arts

be- to exist, occur; take place, to have identity with: to constitute the same idea or object as,

to take place, to come or go


ArtsyBE is the act of doing something and being artsy.  ArtsyBE is a state of mind, body & soul.  Being artsy is findng that place, that thing that frees you and gives you peace.  ArtsyBE gives you a peace that you enjoy separate from the everyday life.   

When you live an ArtsyBE life you are living your best life.

ArstsyBE-say what you want to BE and BE who you want to BE.

Start by making your BE List.  A BE List is like a bucket list because that's what people know, but it's different because it's about BE-ing not just DO-ing.  

What kind of person do you want to BE?

What are the steps, the parts of that one thing that will make you BEcome that way?

What do you want to do, to occur in your life while you are living?

Your BE List is about BEing your best person while you are living not focusing on what you want to do before you die.  

BE honest and ever changing, BE flexible. When you find something you love share your passion with others.

50 year Reboot

 I'm 50! 

I started this blog the year leading up to my 40th birthday.  I started it as motivation for me.  Eleven years ago I was feeling lost.  I was lost in my childrens lives, but exactly where I wanted to be.  That might not make sense to you but it's exactly how I felt.  During the past 11 years I have found myself and lost myself a few more times.  Now I just turned 50 and I'm waking myself back up and giving artsyBE a reboot.  I'm doing and BEcoming the me I used to BE, I'm supposed to BE and I want to BE.  As we all know the world as we knew it was lost for 18 month with the Covid pandemic.  The year 2020 was hard for everyone, but before the world around me shut down my family suffered a tragic loss.  In January 2020, my niece Abbey Mae Luffman died suddenly due to a short battle with ITP, she was only 16 years old.  Abbey was a smart, witty, smiley, athletic, beautiful girl, full of life.  When Abbey got her drivers license she chose to be an organ donor.   I have always approached life a little differently than those around me, my eyes are always wide open, always paying attention to the world around me.  I see things even more differently now and make sure to LIVE every day BEing the best I can BE.  

Like I said I'm being honest, I'm far from perfect, and I'm going to let you see the real me.  Previously I didn't post pictures of myself in my blog, but moving forward I'm going to embrace it.  I still feel lost every once in a while.  Every day isn't easy, some are harder than others to stay focused.  But whenever Ken asks me where do I see myself I still see myself here, being an artistic wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.  Taking it one day at a time, each step closer to BEing the best version of me and sharing my passion with others.  ArstyBE is the only vision I have every had besides being a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.  So in future posts I will fill you in on things that have happened since my last post in 2019 and moving forward.
