Where is Life taking Me?

2010 is shaping up to be nothing like I could have ever envisioned.

I've just come back from a great trip to Dallas, Texas. I'm working on the possibility of moving and being there at the beginning of next year. Life is spiraling and I can hardly complain.

but...I miss writing. I miss painting.

I've been focused on getting the business aspect of my art together and it's left me with little to no time for pure creativity. I need to get back to the basics...and soon.

This year has brought many good things with my art. I've branched out into creating prints, greeting cards, and charmed art from my original art pieces. I'm hoping to eventually get into magnets, shirts, etc. One of my art journal pages was published this past August in "Many Hands, Many Lands" on Blurb from Gary Reef's online community. You can purchase the wonderful book filled with pages of inspirational art online at http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1428133 .

It seems like all my posts during the past few years are cries for more creativity. I'm doing it, just not as much as I would like to. There's so much more to being creative than just writing or creating art. The business aspect of it all is where the "hard" lies.

But despite the changes in my life, I'll be back on track with my writing and my art soon. I can feel it, just around the bend.

Its funny how things are sometimes. I'm loving all aspects of my life right this minute. I've been living a more healthy lifestyle, well up until 2 weeks ago, but I'll get back to that soon. I've lost 13 pounds so far and plan on going for many more this time around.

I'm looking forward to all of the changes coming my way. I have so much hope for the future.
