Well this has been a long time… Wow. What have I been up to??, getting what I’ve been dreaming about but putting off for years. My Teaching Degree in the upper grades. Yes. I did it! Wow… What a year… the hardest most challenging, But oh so worth it Year. Straight A’s Baby. Every weekend was taken up and my Family and Home have been put on hold. Which comes to another thing that I have missed, My Art. My Art friends know how much I love doing Art. For a while there it was getting stale and not fun. I was losing my mojo and It had become what I have been dreading and what I did not want EVER… a JOB. It is my Love, My hobby and my passion. Not a Job or something that makes me question every move I make. I have a Job, a full time Job that makes me happy, I am a Teacher and it is what makes me happy everyday, yes it is possible to have a job you love. Sure I love to sell my Art and supplies on Etsy.. but that is not what I have been all about. I am much more refreshed, much more ready to share and get back to doing what I Love… My Art. I want to share what Ive been making lately.. Yes, I spent the past week getting into the pool slowly…. It feels good.
I went Thrifting for the First time in I really cant remember the last time…. Lots of vintage patterns, hot pink pom pom trim, vintage napkins to use as backgrounds of my collages and Art Journals, flocked vintage fabric in all colors and this box of French cotton twine…
Yes I am Happy. And I think my Daughter D is happy, remember her? She is 9 now. I know Ive missed so much in her Life this year, but I am trying to make it up daily. We put up a tent in the backyard for her to do her Summer reading. Once in a while you can catch her reading her American Girl magazine in her private little space..
Yes, I am back and refreshed ! Ive missed you!
