The New Year has arrived! And my life is finally starting to settle. Some of you may, or may not, vaguely remember that The last several years I was working a lot of hours at a job I didn't care for while either going to school or trying to run a business. 2015 brought the tides of change; and change things did! I applied for and was accepted into my dream job. I get to be a massage therapist working for someone else, doing therapeutic massage like I wanted to do. I don't have to worry about paperwork, or client recruitment or advertising. I come in when I'm scheduled and have a a fair amount of control over my schedule as well. This business has 10 therapists and a learning culture built into its structure. While I work less hours than I did at my other job I am more exhausted. I am okay with this! It is a rewarding feeling at the end of the day that I have accomplished something and made a difference in people's lives.

Now that I am sleeping well and working a job that I absolutely love, however, my anxieties have skyrocketed. I'm making a forceful return into art and craft to try and deal with my depression/anxiety mix. I may not always be drawing either! For Christmas my husband, who knows just how to spoil me rotten, gave me a spinning wheel! Over the last year I have started getting involved in more fiber crafties, crochet, knit and hand spinning. It is likely I will be posting some of those things as well.

One of my goals is to reorganize and redesign my gallery, some art will be brought down. I have been contemplating changing my username but I don't think that will happen anytime soon.

Welcome to 2016, 356 opportunities to do something amazing!

Art is one of my true passions in life; along with music and crafty stuffs. This year I am going to make a return to dA as much as I can! Not only drawings but possibly some fiber related posts as well :)

I may be interested in point commissions! The requirement is that you have patience :) I will admit to being slow ^_^

I wanted to try stipling because I never had before yesterday. I gotta say it was a lot of fun! I call this experiment a success!

He's not fully based off any real snail because I made up his markings and added a beard :)

I realize that I carry a sketchbook with me everywhere, along with pens and colored pencils. I also realize that despite this I don't draw enough! So on my downtime today I decided to bring it all out and make something happen!
Something shiny is in process :3 But It's an art trade so no peeking!

Hey, I have an idea! I Love the idea of art challenges. If I did an art challenge every so often [maybe every other week or once a month] would you be interested? I would feature all art done for the challenge in a journal :) 

6 deviants said Ya yaya! Do it!
2 deviants said Mehbeh...
1 deviant said Sounds fun! I love a good challenge!
No deviants said I guess so?
No deviants said Nah, I'm way too lazy for this...
No deviants said No...
