What I've Been Up To

Hi everyone,

It has been QUITE a while since my last blog post and some of you have asked if everything is OK. So I wanted to take a moment to let you know.... I'm fine.  I'm just taking a bit of a break from blog land to focus on some goals, both personal and artistic.  

On a personal note, I've been focusing on losing some weight, something I have struggled with my whole life.  I have been successful in losing weight a couple of times, but have let it creep back on ever so slowly (dang it, I do love food!).  I'm going to see Hels in May and really wanted to drop 30 pounds because it will make traveling more comfortable and enjoyable for me.  I'm happy to report that after only 7 weeks, I've lost 22 pounds!  Only 8 more to go.  

Artistically, I've been doing less than normal, but I still spend time in the studio, and I'm working some items that I hope to be able to sell in an on-line shop (not sure if I'll do the Etsy route, or add a shopping page to my blog... need to do more research).

I'm heading off to "stamp camp" this afternoon and will spend the weekend with a group of wonderful ladies making art for 3 days.  Looking forward to some quality time with quality people!

I hope you are all doing well - I'll be back sometime - just not sure when.   Until then...
