I have been so bad about my email recently and I want to publicly apologize to everyone. Over Mother's Day weekend I received several ecards and messages and I didn't get to answer them so this is my way of saying "Thank You."

It isn't because I don't care....far from it! I have just been so overwhelmed with this house crap (yes, I said crap!!) and my energy level has been very low. It has also been difficult for me to maintain my "sunny disposition" (HA!) so rather than boring you to tears with all that junk, I just haven't been online much.

We have tweaked this house to within an inch of its life so someone better love it and want it!! I'm seriously considering moving into a cave next time! No decorating involved, I could just hose it down when it got dirty, plenty of room for making art messes....it all sounds good to me! I could become "The Old Woman Who Lived in a Cave" instead of a shoe!!

Art has definitely been absent from my life for way too long. I try to draw and create little things but my heart just isn't in it. For some reason my imagination and my creativity are MIA right now. Was my art just a flash in the pan or will I get it back? It feels as if all my goals for this year have been pushed aside and the house has taken center stage. There have been so many personal changes in my life recently that I sometimes wonder if I accidentally stepped into someone else's life! This was planned to be my year to break through and create something every day ....to expand my art horizons and learn new things. That didn't last too long! I've had lots of suggestions on things to try and they're all good suggestions but I just cannot seem to act on them. Have any of you ever gone through periods like this? Is there hope for me to come back?

When I have any time at all, I try to pop in for quick little visits to your blogs. I miss everyone, and miss seeing all your creations every day. That was part of my inspiration for my own art. This is what I've been reduced to doing....



I didn't draw this. It's from one of those doodle coloring books. I just filled it in with Sharpies. I did this while watching "mindless drivel" on TV!! Do you think I'm going bonkers??!!
