Well, hello there


I missed you.

Yes, I did.

I could still take a few more days to collect my thoughts, but then again I may get in the habit of NOT posting and then never take it up again.

And that just won't do, will it?!

I did fill several pages in my Moleskin of idea after idea to post about. It felt good to just write out ideas and not worry about all the details. Brainstorming. No ideas were bad ideas.


I'm in the thick of my new art journal class at the moment. Wow. I'm so, so happy I decided to do this one. This is my 3rd RVA class and I must say, it's my favorite so far. It's been so good for me because I'm a very structured perfectionist when it comes to my crafts. I have a hard time walking away and just being "done." I want everything to be perfect and every page/project to be the best thing I've ever done. So much pressure on myself! I'm trying to let go and just do what I see in my mind and enjoy the process. Embrace the imperfections. Love it.

What have you been up to?

I like how it's a big deal if you go for 5 days without writing a blog post and I think I'm doing pretty well if I do 2 posts a month these days. If only I was as dedicated as you are. I would like to think that I have a good excuse with my broken laptop and this little festival thingy that keeps me at work for at least 12 hours most days though. Glad to see you are back.

Don't you have an iphone though? It's super easy to post from that! A snapshot of NYC plus one sentence and bam! Post! Plus, your life is much more exciting and interesting than mine. I miss your gems like "cat week" too. When you get your new 'puter will you do another week like that, please?!
