You've Been Missed
Let's see...it's been since March since I've talked to you last. Long enough for the seasons to change; long enough for many things to change I suppose. The year started off pretty rocky and I guess I just needed time to be emotional about it. You would think that art would be a part of the healing process for me (because it usually is) but this time it was not. In fact, I barely even touched an art supply for nearly 8 months. Can you believe that? Me- the girl who is always creating something and obsesses over art - created not a single thing in almost a year! When I think about that now, it makes me sad. It is sad, isn't it?
No matter though, because I am back! I've spent the past couple of weeks drawing, painting, crafting and man, does it feel good! It's a wonder I stopped at all. I forgot how addictive it is to create. I also forgot just how much I depend on it to make it through each day because like I said, I'm an emotional being. Not crazy emotional, just sensitive. Some people say that I'm oversensitive, and they say it like it's a bad thing. Sometimes it is, like when I'm overwhelmed and then don't create anything for eight months, or when I'm really tired and then cry over something silly. That said, it can also be a gift. Sensitivity aids me in seeing the world in beautiful ways that others may not see, it makes me grateful for the small things, it makes me stronger for the future, and it is the main power line that lights the way for my art. I have a theory that artists' are more sensitive than normal people. Do you think there's something to that theory? I'd love to hear your opinions on the matter :)
Anyway, enough babbling, lol. My point is that art helps me stay sane and that I am here again. I truly couldn't be happier about it because I missed creating, I missed the blog-o-sphere, and of course, I missed all of my online friends :) I've taken many pictures the last few days so I will have some things to post here soon. Hopefully the picture quality will be okay but I've dropped my camera a few times so until I get a new one, it will just have to do :)

I hope all of you and your families are all doing fantastically. Take care and I will talk to you soon :)
