Hope everyone had a great holiday! I'm ready for the new year. A time to start fresh and set some goals. I have not been as dedicated to getting work done and posting in 2012. I decided to set myself up to be challenged. I'll be posting in the new year. Until then I hope you all have a happy and safe holiday!

Life has gotten in the way yet again. I'm shocked I've only posted 5 times this year. Funny, but I actually thought that number would be lower. I have been recovering from an injury as many who have read this blog know. I lost time somewhere in this injury warp. I now realize this last year I have grieved the loss of what my life once was. I can walk at this point which is great! But my foot only works at about 10% mobility. It's hard to imagine having a bum foot........but a bum foot, leads to a bum ankle that leads to a bum knee, bum hip, that then hurts the back and neck.
I guess I have realized in the last few months that I am going through something life changing........that I had a loss.......that I needed to grieve that loss, and work through it my way, Find spirit to let go the negative and move past it. I feel that I'm coming out on the other end of it emotionally. It takes courage to except things, and finding the strength at times is difficult. As we all know time does not stop for us, but we merely need to adapt.
I am finding my way and will be back in 2013. I'm thinking of new projects to tackle and I hope you'll come along for the ride.
Be back soon.

|This is a piece I made for my Niece. She is into graffiti art. Seeing as my style is a bit bright and grungy I thought she would enjoy it.|
|This was inspired by some friends that have given me a huge amount of help during my injury. There are really good people in this world. I am blessed to know some of them.|

Trying to incorporate patience into every day. Some days are harder than others.
|I am waiting for this day to come. The day I am healed and have no need to worry about my foot.|
This is a photo of the altered game boards that was last month prompt for our altered books group. it was a fun challenge but quite a large surface to deal with. It was daunting to think how to cover the space but it all came together in the end as it always does. My game board was Candy land. I took it and made a land of candy. it's magical and glitzy. I don't feel the pic does the shiny magical part of it justice.
