All Goode Things Come With Time

Life is changing for me. I'm slowly able to pick up where I left off with pattern orders and wee friends going to new homes. Sadly I do have to cancel some orders and shows, but on the flip side there is great excitement as I go forward and prepare my continued future as an Artist. I am very much a creative spirit, and so when my outlet is taken away, I am unbalanced. Creating is like an addiction for me, I can't imagine my life without it. Yes, it does rule me, but that is part of my soul. With so many things needing my attention now, I would be mush without creating somehow. And so... the fruit of my creative outlet is my beloved ink drawings. Perhaps a stolen hour or so in the evenings, but cherished none the less. Meet Eliza, inspired from "My Fair Lady" with her dress. A friend suggested that she would be great on Invitation cards...the possibilities are many! I hope that as everything settles down, I will be able to share with you more of my joys in other media. Here's to goode things ahead for all of us!

OHH Rooners...shes exquisite, as usual, your spirit just shines & flows from the ink. As does your being such an inspiration to me & so many. Your message about refueling your spirit w/ balance was exactly what I needed to hear for myself today so thank you for your honesty on your personal journey. It is so true, its "ALL" in the ride, not the destination..so gladyour a part of my ride. Love ya, ((Kat))
