We had such a relaxing vacation but on returning home we've been a bit overwhelmed. Dan found out he's been downsized - ah, stress! We've been in Seattle, at this job, for two years and now we're back to the ranks of the unemployed and feeling a bit.....discouraged, worried, uncertain, etc. For those of you who have also been in this position, you know what I mean - it's a ball of emotions that are hard to untangle. So much negativity - and we are NOT negative people. I obviously drew the 'don't worry, be happy' BEFORE we found out we were unemployed! :) We'll work on it though (the don't worry part).
So, my mind has been on other things other than the blog and art. But, today I found myself itching, twitching, fantasizing about making art. So I'm going to use it to put my worries out of my head for a little while - I have some strong WIP collages from my class, my ALAW project is about ready to show the next stage, I have mail art to make, I have a rosy botanical to make for a couple of challenges - I feel better already!
