A friend emailed me that I have not posted here in a while. I am happy to know someone is reading this. There is a fine line between the wonderful new world of communication the internet allows us, and being so self-absorbed as to think that every little thought or action or image one conceives is worth pronouncing to the world via a blog. I am hoping to avoid that pitfall, while at the same time I am finding it refreshing to feel more connected to others by the ease of internet communication. I tend to be such a loner, and so private, I find opening up to be a good way of remembering my natural connection to others.
Anyway, here's what I have been doing: I cleaned the studio (somewhat) in preparation to paint.
I worked on these box designs to add card sets of both my botanicals and affirmations to my shop.
Then my sweet little Emma came down with strep throat AGAIN just a week after we got rid of it. I didn't think to dispose of her toothbrush, lip balm, etc, so that may be how she got it back. Needless to say, we both were a bit unhappy to be housebound again. So, we brought some paint home from the studio and worked in our sketchbooks.
Now I am off to the studio for some MUCH-NEEDED time alone to work and play with paints grown-up style.
