Blogger Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Blog!! It has actually been almost one year that this blog has been here allowing me to share, holding me accountable, causing me to pursue dreams, and recording my creative journey.
Looking back, I can see where doors have opened for me in places I didn't know there was a door. The support and encouragement and acceptance I have received has been an unexpected amazing experience! So much has happened that I never expected in this year. And....art is still my passion! I'm loving this new, creative avenue!
It's time, now, to set some new goals, use my New Year's word....SEEK....to inspire new ideas, and take everything to the next level.
As Summer is approaching, I am realizing how much we will be away. At first, I began to worry....how can I have time to keep producing fresh ideas?...which was putting an undue pressure on myself and stealing the joy of the fun and exciting things we will get to do. It was also stealing the joy from my art time! I can really do a number on myself and have to give myself these little talks to work through it all. I have now decided to make the choice of enjoying my time with my husband and family this summer and if I have time for art great and if I don't fine too! There will be PLENTY of alone time again when school starts in August for me to hit it hard. So, I am off to enjoy a wonderful time of travel, and great times of memory making this summer!!
