Magic Carpet Ride

Resolutions, lists, goals -- we all make them as we face the new year. Sometimes those wishes come true and you breeze along the highway of life with ease, wind teasing your tresses in a perfect movie moment kind of way, the road ahead smooth and sure.  Other times the best intentions get mired and messy, a traffic jam you can't escape, a bad hair day that won't end.  And then there are the times life takes you on a magic carpet ride, to places wildly unexpected and yet somehow cut just right.  I know which journey I'm hoping for in 2013.  How about you?

The color and joy of Sandra Benhaim's work first drew me in and then her titles captivated me even more, coinciding with themes brewing for Style Maniac and thoughts for my own life.  You'll be seeing more of her art all year.
