The only thing I fear more than change is no change. The business of being static makes me nuts.

Here we go…another new year.  Last year was full of such fun and wonderfulness for me and my family. This year has bright hope for the same!!! I’m not so much a resolution maker but I am a list maker.  There are so many things on my list that I want to explore in 2012. Don’t get excited I will NOT BE climbing Mt Kilimanjaro’s summit. We have settled that over a bag of Cheetos… but, I have many other things to explore. So lets just see where I go. I’m beginning right here.

 And here. BTW, Copic sketch markers………a very good thing!

I’ve been in my sewing room playing with the above…I call this a return to my roots. In college I was originally a studio art major. No interest in commercial art for me, nope! There is also a reason for leaving the art world it is called WORK, family and life. No regrets just the facts. Now I’m making a return and doing some exploring. I’m lovin to too! Wonder where this will go. JOY RISING here at Silver Thimble World Headquarters.

    How blessed you are to be able to sketch and draw. I have known many kindergarteners (in fact, MOST of them) who can draw better than I can!!! LOL

    I’m a list maker, but after the list is created – I’m on to something else! That’s what I’m working on. Best wishes for the New Year!
