Strapping in for take off!

This past year or so has been so crazy for me and in particular, this past month...that yesterday when I returned home form work I finally sat down in the chair to relax and had the strangest sensation of needing to be strapped kidding...I felt like I was moving-and needed to be safely contained. What a weired sensation!!!
Too much going on for this low key girl. I will be so happy when things slow down and the stress level returns to manageable state around here.

That being said, we are most of the way through purchasing a new home and hopefully will be moved in in a few weeks. I will have my own little art studio/space (for the first time) Yippee!!!

How could it be? Let me check...Sure enough! MY 100th POST! YIPEE!!!!!

It really came at a great time for me...I am growing and changing in so many an artist and on a personal level!
You know when there are times in your life that things don't seem to change much, you get in a routine and stay there doing the same thing? This past year has definitely NOT been that kind of year for me...When someone asks me how things are going, I honestly have reason NOT to say "same-0l' same-ol' "...but I CAN honestly say "I am blessed"...

Much has happened this past year and without going into great detail; I was diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer but because of catching it early, after a little surgery,I am fine...
My 14 yr. old son was diagnosed with celiac disease( cannot have even a speck of wheat/gluten) for the rest of his life; which was a blessing it was caught at his early age, but I have had to learn to cook separate meals, can't cross cross- contaminate when I am in the kitchen, etc...
I also went back to work for the first time in 13 years and that in itself was an amazing adventure (which I will have to share another time) and am doing floral design...
and seriously that is only the very TIP of the iceberg!!NO kidding!
OK enough of the personal raz-a-ma-taz...I really just wanted a chance to say how much blogging has meant to me and that when I first started out blogging I had no idea what to do and where it would take me...I have to say that I have met some of the most incredible and special kindred spirits that could have shared my computer is like this big world of ours is a little more friendly and a little less scary...a little more creative and a little less harsh!

Thank you my blogging friends for making my corner of the blogging world a little brighter and my heart a little a little lighter for having crossed your paths..........

Please join me on my new blog at I plan on continuing my artful journy there and I would love it if you would join me!

Happy New Year and an update of sorts...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!!

Looking back on this last year for me has been one of many changes...many of them good and some not so much! But through it all I am finding that I am counting my blessings and growing closer in my faith and stronger as a person...

With every frustration in my life I purposely try to find a blessing to counter-act it...I have even been accused of being a "Polly-anna" at times and just smile and am thankful, it is more of a compliment to me than the person knows...

With returning to work, I am finding I have much less time to create than I want...but I guess that just means the projects I pick will have to be that much more meaningful that I choose to spend my time on...

My New Year's Resolution is to be better organized so I can spend my time more wisely...and one of the things I wish to do is allot some time to blogging!
Many blessings in the New Year! and stay tuned for new changes to won't be disappointed!!!
