About Me

My photo

I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend a daughter, and artist.

If there was a way I could spend as much time in my studio creating as I do working my regular 40 hour job I would do it in a heartbeat. I am loving discovering myself through art and I can't wait to see where the journey takes me.

Wow...where have I been???

I hadn't realized it had been this long since I posted...things have been a bit crazy and off kilter...
I can say that these last few weeks have been a huge test for me...seeing my child in a devastating situation but at the same time having to deal with her being in total denial. When someone changes so drastically, literally overnight, it can be very hard to reach them, and when it is your child, it takes it's toll on the heart and soul.

The end result was that, because she was not able emotionally to see what was happening, and all of the decisions she was making were so destructive, I had to step in. My only option was to put her on a plane and send her 1800 miles away to live with her dad. This has been one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make, but I had to put my personal feelings aside and do what was best for her. So off she went with nothing but a suitcase and her puppy. I hope and pray every single day that with time, she will allow herself to go through the process of healing and see, once again, what an  awesome, beautiful young woman she is, and that she deserves so much more than she so abruptly settled for. I have all the faith in the world in her.

So my mojo has kind of disappeared through all of this chaos...but I am getting it back.

I have been working on some backgrounds and made a couple of ATC cards for Denise Phillip's September challenge.

Then today, on facebook, I came across a link for a inspirational quote deck swap...oh man this is just what I need right now and I am SO GLAD that I found it. I am all signed up and really excited and looking forward to the end result.

I have also decided I am going to make a deck to send to my daughter...pieces of me, inspiration and hope for her, and also love and healing. I can't wait to get started.
