This is as Close as I Get...

I have not done art in quite a while and I'm starting to miss it! I hadn't known how to keep the fire alive and was starting to think maybe I didn't want to do art anymore. I realized the desire is still there, but LIFE has been in my way. Health issues, homeschool to teach, many other things that just take my time and energy.

Yet, there are seasons for things. I'm hoping the season of ART is upon me. This is the pile of reading books by my bed tonight. I'm enjoying preusing them all, especially the Journal Junkies Workshop. A couple are for me, one is on children, the rest are art.

I received a nice box of Raven art journals to work on. I'm working with a group from Altered Gypsy forums to complete them. The work that has gone into each page is just breathtaking, and its time to add my  work. I hear my own personal journal is about to find its way back home to me. To say I'm excited is an understatement. I'll have to share photos when it returns home safe and sound. I've already forgotten what the cover looks like! Thankfully, this blog has search capabilities. Here it is.

What artsy things are going on in your life? Are you making time?

Hi Kris,
I understand the feeling of life getting in the way. Funny about the Raven...I'm in a post card swap group and one of the cards is Raven.
Love to hit the library for art books! I have many on the table next to my bed, too!

that las comment was from me, Shirley, not Jeri. I'm signed into the My Creative Classroom support desk account and I didn't get a chance to switch users.

I have had lots of time to make stuff (now that the wedding is done). Mostly I have been making cards to donate for a fundraiser.
Believe it or not I actually made 3 scrapbook pages!
I even started reading Fellowship of the Ring while waiting at Jury Duty!

Trying to make time. It really is MAKING time, sometimes. Glad to see you aren't giving it up, that would be horrible. You'd feel like you were missing a piece of you heart!
