    looking for water


    I have been avoiding my own blog like The Plague! And if you have a blog too I know you understand me too. It sometimes feels like such a chore, right? There are a thousand other things in your life that need to get done/washed/cooked/fed/put to bed. In my own particular case the thing that turned my world upside down was a tiny human being that demands attention. More than I remember that they needed. Tons of it. And it is SO MUCH FUN and I do it wholeheartedly with all my love,... but... I do need to do other non motherly things, and I have been thinking of this little space more and more as months go by.

    And another reason why I have avoided the blog is because I promised myself this year I would go back to doing found art regularly once a month, and of course, FAIL. I feel terrible terrible. But there it is. It is done. I didn't do it and was inconsistent. but instead of thinking about it in a bad way, today I am choosing to think about it in a good way. I want (and am ready for) start working more consistently. Yay!

    I've been inspired this last couple of weeks, first because I was re-connected with the power-woman that is Jessica Brogan. Brave brave lady and her blog is so full of inspiration, go check it out!

    I am in the process of looking for my copy of The Artist Way by Julia Cameron. Noticed how I said I am in the process of looking for it... yes I don't know where it is. If I cant find it! I will I will...

    And second, you need to go see this site: Jamie Ridler Studios. I was looking for a support group online where I could find some excercises in creativity and reached out to my inner circle of creative friends in -of all places- Facebook. and the awesomess Summer Pierre pointed her way and OH MY gosh it's exactly what I was looking for. I am sure there a tons of other sites that give you an encouraging nudge the right way and I am open for all of it!

    Please let me know which are your favorite places to get inspiration -and water- from, I am thirtsy!

    If you haven't found your book yet, might I suggest a prayer to St. Anthony? :)
