Hello world ....8 years on!

I am still in disbelief that it has been 8 years since I last blogged. I was even more surprised to find this blog still here, yes I was still logged in! Do people still even use blogger? 

I never really explained where I went last time. I just packed up my stash and decided I was done. Dropping all my DT roles, sold my gear and life moved on. Something I loved so much just became too much. Something I started as a type of therapy became the opposite. Why I am here again you may wonder? Paper, paint and all those pretty little things have drawn me back in after a major hiatus.

So anyway, 8 years on... I have lost both my parents, my nest if empty with my son moving out with his girlfriend and starting his life. We have a new house, I am back at my old business and life is still ticking away. So about a month ago, I started creating again. Just for myself, occasionally for etsy. And I am really enjoying the slow pace of it. My style a slightly different version of the old, simpler, less chaotic...that may change. I have no idea if anyone will even read this, but just felt like sharing some of my creations :)

Love everything about these two lines, the colors, vintage feel, metal's all so swoon worthy!!
