Hi y’all. I know it’s been a while…a very long while…but it was time that I desperately needed to acclimate to working again, fitting art into a much fuller schedule, and just some down time without feeling the pressure (self-induced, i admit) to blog.
Much has happened in the past 5 1/2 weeks that i will share with y’all in due time, yet nothing has happened…if that makes any sense at all.
I did make the decision to make this MY blog…not just about art and journaling but about my life, too. More about my life than before. I guess that’s something I should have given my self permission to do when I began this blog but I didn’t so when my art production went down, I felt as though I shouldn’t blog.
What a crock that is.
This is my space, my little online world of my own making so why had I made these crazy rules about what I could and couldn’t include here? I really guess it had to do with the fear of losing readership if I wasn’t artsy enough or creative enough. But now, well, I yam what I yam and to try and be something I’m not was suffocating me. Yes, I am artsy and creative and love to make tons of different things in my own crafty-artsy way…but I also have a life with a husband, kids, a grandson, sisters, brothers, a job, bills, good days and bad days, tears and laughter. I just came to the conclusion that my art is not the only thing about me that I want to share in this space…and that is what the days to come have in store for the pages here.
I hope you’ll like the other parts of me that I will share from here on out and that you’ll keep in mind that I’m human, with quirks and opinions and I make mistakes as well as have my triumphs…it’s all fair game.
If you’ve read this far, thank you. Thank you for letting me step back into your life after a little hiatus; thank you for your patience.
Peace & Love,
