As a child, if someone gave me a coloring book and a 64 count box of Crayola Crayons I would entertain myself for hours on end. Well, crayons have made their way back into my life, as well as paints, pencils and various other art supplies.
My art cart brings me such joy. I look at it in the morning and it gives me permission to go ahead and play. My heart has been missing this and I didn't even know it.
I started this post last Fall and it has been sitting unpublished in my draft folder since then. I have some news to share, so it seemed like the perfect time to finish this.
I am so excited to announce that some of my work will be shown for the month of February at a local museum. Here's the link to the annoucement: https://www.facebook.com/The.Vestal.Museum/photos/a.729136080449783/3232797556750277/?type=3&theater
Sending thanks out to my friends and family who have been so supportive of me and my art journey. Lately, I've been focusing on maintaining balance in my life. I enjoy doing research and genealogy but I also have other interests that I want to explore. I have a very busy family who needs me. It's important that I am present and not just going through the motions with them. My kids will be leaving the nest before you know it. I will continue to write genealogy updates from time to time here on this blog. I just won't be posting as often as I did in the past.
