Taking Time to Breathe

Life has been so busy since school started I have not had a chance to get back into my studio.  I miss creating in my little studio but I have been getting so much done around my house.  I have had a chance to be somewhat creative as I have been hanging drapes, pictures and putting some much needed finishing touches on areas of my home that have been neglected.  

I always feel that I can't "play" in my studio until all of my work is finished.  I have recently come to realize that if I only allow myself to go into the studio when I have absolutely nothing else to do I will NEVER get in there and that will make for an unhappy girl!  I need to take time to breathe once in awhile and create so my heart and soul can be happy!  It helps make everything else in life more enjoyable!

I recently visited the Etsy shop of a very talented artist, Lisa Jurist from Mudhound Primitives .  Lisa is one of the most inspiring artists I know and I purchased a small mixed media collage from her to hang in my studio, "Life Sat Waiting"-so beautiful!  I'm afraid my photography does not do it justice as it is SO much more beautiful in person.

Here are some of my mixed media collages I made a few months ago.  I am hoping to be able to get into my studio and "play" sometime very soon!

That's all for now!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family!  Take time to breathe and remember what you have in your life and be grateful!  :)
