Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's to hoping I can keep up with blogging again. I found that when I actually blogged, it helped in other areas, meaning I actually did things with my life. Things have been really busy for me, actually. I have been adapting to my job(s), and it's been really hectic. I'm still not a fan of going to two different schools, it seems like a lot, still.

In other ways, I think I want to revamp the idea of this blog. I have a few months to decided on which way I want to go, but I think I want to make this more of my own personal art blog. I feel like I haven't been doing a lot with my art the last 2 years, and I feel horrible about it. I have time to do it, I have time to make things, but I don't. Not that I haven't been doing anything, I just never finish anything. I could come up with all sorts of excuses about how I don't finish pieces, or only work on examples for school, or make cute cards for friends and family, or my wedding invitations... but I'm just going to stop.

So my goal-- to make something everyday. It doesn't have to be much of anything, just something. I think they're all going to be small pieces. Maybe 5x5 inches. Maybe slightly larger. I like the idea of squares... more like tiles. I think that these "everyday" pieces will be drawing, or maybe just pen and ink, maybe watercolor-- maybe marker, crayon (who knows). I don't know yet. I guess that's the fun of it. The point of it is to make it a habit and maybe spark some inspiration. I'm having trouble with inspiration lately.

I've always felt that making artwork for me was meditation or even therapy. I know that if I don't do it, I feel less like me. So here's to all your creative people out there who are already doing what i want to do. Just make art, make it for yourself, and see what happens....

Oh- and Happy belated Thanksgiving...
