I know it's been months since I posted...

"You gain strength,
courage
 and confidence
by every
 experience
 in which you
really stop
 to look fear
 in the face." 
~Eleanor Roosevelt
I know I haven't posted in months, and I feel really bad and somewhat guilty about it.  I have always tried to use my blog to focus strictly on posting about what I have been creating in my studio; I really didn't want to get into my personal life on it.  But the New Year rang in a lot more than I ever bargained for.

As a result, the chain of events started in motion...no mojo equaled no creating.  No creating equaled no blogging.  And no blogging equaled guilt at no creating.
I did make a wonderful pendant to honor my mom and dad last month, and I wear it often. But other than that and a few pair of earrings...that's about it.  I felt a burst of inspiration today, so I made this collage of my sister and myself.
So now I feel a little less guilty because I did finally post something, even though it isn't very much.

Timing.....I was looking at a past issue of Stampington's Inspiration, the Holiday 2006 issue and I kept zeroing in on this one person's artwork in this issue. Darn if this same name didn't keep coming up, Jill Marie Shulse.......throughout this issue. I thought "I've got to google this lady's name because I love her mixed media pieces". So I find your blog and this post that the year started out perhaps not as planned and your mojo took a hike. Well I'm here to tell you, I'm seeing your mojo everywhere. She's still there, I'm so glad I can see her and acquaint myself with her.

Thank you, Whyte! You have no idea how much your post means to me. I needed to hear that so badly, and it couldn't have come at a better time. I truly appreciate your comment!
