Blogs

Ok what happens when a 40 something decides she wants to get her work out to the new world. She starts a blog and gets to it? Nah, she surfs the net all afternoon checking out all the clever artsy blogs she can find. Although I did manage to get some well deserved work out of the way and did a little cleaning most of my time has been spent going from blog to blog (using those fantastic links on blogs) seeing how many people can inspire me. It seems many people can inspire me(now if I can just ignore them and get back to work). I've never realized just how wonderful the blogosphere can be. It gives us a way to share our souls and our work and our ambitions. What we are grateful for, how many people are sick in our household, the latest piece we've been working on.

Being an artist is a very solitary life. I kidded with my friend Emily that I am becoming a recluse(ok so maybe only partially kidding)and pretty soon I would start wearing pajamas all day(ok, so no pajamas but the next best thing a used up pair of sweats). I've always been a very good people person when I'm comfortable but now that I'm an artist I'm not so good at people anymore. They make me nervous. So I work on my art and read about others who have their art too. And marvel at how there is a great big community to learn about. Wonderful artists, wonderful cooks, wonderful people and me. I'm having a great time reading everyone's blogs.

I don't have any pictures to share today but soon I will have lots to take pictures of and share when the coop chapter closes. Most of my best work was there and I am here so pretty soon you will be able to see it here(until I find somewhere else to hang it there). Oh well. I'm looking into Etsy too but not quite yet. I have to get down to business and work for a change! Blessings to all of you, especially you bloggers!

Thank you for your kind words about my shawl/scarf. I plan to wear it Friday night to an art exhibit with an all black outfit. It should be quite striking.
You do beautiful embroidery. I haven't done that since I was a child but treasure the pieces that family members have done.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I share your wonder at the blogosphere; it is such a happy place! I too admit to virtual visiting more than crafting. It has added so much to my life (both by inspiring and new friends) that I refuse to feel guilty about time at the computer anymore. Consider it part of the artistic process.
