My gosh, it has been ages since I've been here with you! Not that I am not thinking about it, but life has gotten somewhat more complex, though all in a good way!
It is a complicated telling, but essentially I am moving 90% of my belongings to my new home in Idaho on the other coast. You can see me in the midst of this in this picture. The movers come on October 26, and believe it or not, I've a lot more to do, like the kitchen and closets....
Why not move it all? Because I will not move there permanently until June of 2018. Nonetheless I am moving so many things because I will be in my new home for six months starting in January. I've sold this home to dear friends (or will have in early December). They want to renovate some areas of this lovely but very old house. So while I am away, I want to leave them as much space as possible to do whatever they need or want to do!
I am leaving behind the bare minimum of dishes, clothes, furniture, etc. (and ok, slightly more than that for art stuff, lol!) because when I return I will rent my former home from my friends whilst they ready their home for sale. Whew!
So, not a lot of time or space to do artful things, but am trying to follow everyone's wonderful makes in the meantime. And I am trying to learn how to sketch/paint in watercolor as I figured that is something I can travel with readily since I will be in Nicaragua for 4 weeks in early 2017 for my sabbatical. Here are a few images.... I am taking Gina Rossi Armfield's "No Excuses Watercoloring" class online - it is wonderful!! And do not judge the class by my work - I am just learning :-)
Hope to join back in the creation part of blogland come the new year, if not before.... and in the meantime, thank you all for such incredible inspiration and beautiful projects!!
