I realize I have been gone for about 4 months

Not that I was around much before that XD

I realize I don't have a big following, and I'm okay with that lol, and that I post so infrequently that you never know when I'll be around. I feel I at least owe it to you, my friends, to explain what's been going on.

I have not drawn a single thing in over 4 months. Nothing at all.

So here's what's been going on:

March 17th, St. Patrick's day- I had to put my 9yr old dog to sleep. She got very sick very, very quickly and there wasn't anything we could do that would make her better. I was not going to let her suffer even though it truly broke my heart.

March, sometime in the last week- found out we were moving and had 1 week to pack up and move. We got most of our things packed in 1 week and were able to finish the rest later. Finally completely moved out after a month. Due to complications were not able to put the house on the market for 3 months. Have been throwing money at a mortgage and a lease.

Business-If you didnt' know already I have my own business. And in the last couple of months it has become a bit more busy, which is awesome, but less time for art and crafties.

Personal- I have been fighting a downward spiral since I had to make the decision to put my dog to sleep. I didn't realize it at first. I always forget I have people to talk to all around. I let it build up and build up and eventually there is nowhere to go but down. But I was finally able to get a lot off my chest and changes (awesome amazing changes) are going to start being put into place. Will I be less busy? No way. Will I be happier? Very much yes.

Other stuff- I did pick up crocheting, because Lord knows I need another hobby... [sarcasm]. The part about crochet that is amazing is that I can relax and it helps me to wind down from the stress.

I make no promises but I'm hoping that as things settle down in the next month or two that I can start getting back into my artwork.

You've told me many of the things, and it's certainly a lot to handle all at once, especially the unexpected. Don't forget, I'm on Skype - you can always chat to me to vent.

Its good to hear from you again. Take care of yourself. Of course I miss your artwork but I understand that other things come before art.
