So almost one year I have been away and I can truly say that I am happy to return.
It was time to unplug, take a break, draw within and really put down
the scissors and glue to focus on what else makes me who I am. Many
days were spent with my boys, in my garden, and learning how to bring out the country girl while living in a big city. Our 12' x 12' patio turned into a fully producing vegetable, flower and fruit garden with many little critters and hands helping. I have to say watching a single seed grow into a plant that can provide nutrition for your family is probably one of the most amazing things and taught me how having patience and love is key.
So how did this return come about? My husband was in GREAT need of studio space and I was ready to give up my crafting space to him. I threw everything in boxes and packed them in the garage until the room was renovated. Once we started putting things away I knew it was time to go through each box one at a time. What to get rid of, what to keep, would I keep anything? Well, one night a couple of weeks ago it hit me. An idea that brought me back to my sewing machine and trying out something a little different. This time it is with more love and attention to my artistic needs that I will be sharing more of what I have been doing soon. Keeping it personal, keeping it simple and especially keeping the cycle of happy going.
Thank you for popping in to say hello...you have made me feel at home once again.
