Breathing now and glad to be back.
Well, most of you that follow me know that I have been absent because I just moved. Yes, moved and settling now. I guess you could say I’m building a new nest. I know my limits. So, commitments to my art and projects had to take a back seat for a few months. Thanks to those who understood what my priorities had to be and not over-commit myself. It gave me the breathing space I needed to complete my moving process.
Ok… Can we talk? If you ever decide to move, months and months before you do so.. you must purge. As a matter of fact, purge your junk and donate now as if you were moving in one month. There are many many companies that will now come to your home and pick up your donations. Especially, if you are like me, moving from a big home to a half the size condo? A challenge, indeed, my friends, a challenge, indeed. Well, I’ll just say, we did A LOT of donating. I swear I filled up my SUV about 10 times. I gave some clothes away to friends and family and even some of my home decor. However, it was time to downsize and get away from the big house, big yard, big this, big that. 23 years is enough, I’d say.
So, fast forward to now… we are settling into our new home, adjusting to a bit of city life (coming from the country) and my studio is about 95% complete. It’s complete enough for me to start creating again. It’s been quite a journey not being able to have a studio with all my supplies packed up for months. I feel like I may be a bit rusty, but I’m up for a new challenge. Where the heck do I begin? What should I create first? Hey, how much harder can it get? If you can survive months and waves of stress and emotion and not kill your husband in the process, you can do anything, right? Give me a “hell ya”.
Thank you all for not giving up on me, being patient during my absence and now…. stay tuned for more blog posts, some blog hops and giveaways.
Thanks for stopping by.
