You know the sound of those crickets in the summertime happily making their little noises after it’s completely silent? Yeah kind of like my blog has been, silent and quiet. Not much has been going on my little art world. Life is rapidly changing all around me and I haven’t been feeling inspired at all. Insert cricket sound here. Well after much thought I am taking an art hiatus, as if you didn’t know that by the silence right? I was trying to balance mommyhood and my art “career” and just can’t at the moment. My sweet daughter is taking up most of my time and we’re having fun together and strengthening our relationship on a daily basis. I’ve gotten more hugs and kisses and random “I love you”s than I ever have gotten from her. She needs me and I cherish this time together. Sales have been way down and I have to admit I’m a little discouraged. I see all my cool artsy friends moving on with their careers, writing books, holding classes and selling a ton, I have to admit I’m a little jealous but I’m not at that point right now. I’m happy for them all but wish I could be a part of that world right now. The timing isn’t right and I know it will be at another time just not right now.
Life at home has been nutso I’ve been a decluttering fool and that includes my art supplies and mixed media stuff galore! Last night I made 5 mixed media grab bags full of goodies! I’m selling them on Etsy and they are chock full of stuff! Check them out if you need a boost in your stash and little extras!
I’ve decided to have a little giveaway on here as well. I made this piece for Valentine’s Day but will give it away to one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment on here and I will pick a random winner using random.org next Monday.
Thanks for reading! As I write this I’m reminded of this scripture:
