The Big Exhale

The last couple weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster ride, as a health scare took over almost every waking moment. It is all ok, and thankfully nothing serious. It still gave me enough pause that life has stood still for a bit, and I was definitely holding my breath. I wish I was more resilient in that I could dig down and get to work when my life is in a bit of chaos, but for me being still, and pausing seems to always be the default. I have no idea whether it is good or bad, but it always seems to put so much on hold. I'm hoping to work on changing that a little in the future, maybe if only for my own sanity. 

With all that said, new work is around the corner, and I'm hoping it will brighten the world just a little bit. 

In other life happenings, because I do want to share here once in awhile about my life, Ezra started officially 3K this year, and Elly is on the cusp of turning 2!!! And Charlie, well he's just been along for the ride...Time is a flying...

Back to Basics

wooden flower I've been thinking a lot about how my blogging habits have changed over the years. Gone are the days where I had a desk job and was able to work diligently on my blog in my free time. Also gone are the days where it seemed like everyone was checking into each other blogs and they seemed like a great place to catch up with friends around the web. I still read my fair share of blogs, but definitely not like I used to. This blog has been mostly a place for me to share my latest art adventures with you, and I don't plan on changing that. I'd like to add some more stories though, a better look at the behind the scenes here. It is something I am working towards so very slowly.

I wish I had more art to share with you here, but it has been a month of focusing on family, health, and some side projects. I am making art, it just is not ready for prime time yet, and that is ok. I'm heading into week 27 of pregnancy and to be honest it has been an exhausting journey so far. Chasing a toddler added to the mix has not been helping my energy levels. Just know I'm not going anywhere, I'm slowly working towards some goals, and hopefully after this new baby arrives and life falls into a new rhythm I'll get it all figured out. :)
