I'm so sorry I've been absent lately. I just wanted to pop in and let you all know that I'm still alive! I am in the midst of taking not one, but TWO online classes right now - both of which are COMPLETELY AWESOME - but which are consuming ALL of my time...leaving me little time for blogging!!
However, you can catch me on Fridays (sometimes it's Thursday) over at Craft Test Dummies, and every so often over at Crafts Unleashed, in the meantime. Here's a preview of what I'll be posting this Friday on Craft Test Dummies...
And I *highly* encourage you to check out both of the classes I am taking right now!! The first is one by Melody Ross and Brave Girls Club, called Soul Restoration I. It is already in Week 4, of the 8 week class, but they are keeping registration open through May 1, and are keeping the classroom open for an extra 4 weeks after the 8 weeks are over to give late starters a chance to finish the class material. It is truly a wonderful class and I cannot say enough positive things about it! Watch Melody's video intro HERE.
The second class is the She Art Workshop by Christy Tomlinson, and I just started it a couple days ago...but I am already LOVING it!! I was only introduced to Christy's work in the last couple months, but have admired her from the beginning and had hoped to one day be able to take her workshops. When the opportunity presented itself, I couldn't pass it up!! I am learning so much!
I am definitely being bombarded with art, art, art right now...but it's been so good for me. It's been refreshing and rejuvenating...challenging and stretching...faith-building and growing. I've been reminded of things that I'd forgotten, urged to let go of things I'd been holding on to that I needed to let go of, and have had my eyes opened to new things altogether. (And I'm talking both literally and spiritually.) I needed this break right now, just me and God and some art. (If only I didn't have all these other responsibilities...right?)
So...I'll be back soon, I promise! With all kinds of new and fun ideas to share! In the meantime...maybe I'll see you over at Brave Girls Club or in the She Art workshop!!
