to all my followers ... o.k., so there are only 4 of you. I had thought about just deleting this blog without saying anything, but that seemed so rude! Here's the scoop:
I started this blog during spring break when school was out and I was on a break from work and life was just slower. I've since realized that worrying about not keeping this up is more of a burden than a joy, and I think you'll agree that creativity should be a joy!!
I am not forsaking the projects in The Artistic Mother, I just have to weave them in and out of the other demands in my life. I do have the squares cut out to make my poetry bag and, hopefully, it and the poetry journal will be completed in the next couple of weeks. When they are, I'll post a photo.
My biggest apology goes to Shona, the author of The Artistic Mother. I am such a big fan and such a believer in all that she has to teach that I feel like I've failed her. :) But, to give myself a bit of comfort, I think I am in a very different place in my life and I do intend to continue learning from her techniques and tutorials. Maybe one day I'll be as disciplined in this area as she obviously is ... but probably not ;o)!
