i have been in sort of a funk ever since the evil cold set in. i am feeling better now, and the girls are on the mend. but it most certainly did something to the momentum that i had going there for a while. and right now i am just having a hard time getting back in the groove of anything. usually when i get like this i can just go into my studio and unwind. every video i try to work on is blah. blog posts are stuck. even art journaling seems to be eluding me. does that ever happen to you? i am sure i just need a little r & r. but it is the worst when you feel like you have to force something. so i am going to just chill a little until i get my mojo back.
on another note, it’s mother’s day weekend and kind over matter is doing an art and photo share today. the theme is mama love, so appropriate. so i thought it would be perfect to share some love for my mama today. my mom is really the reason i am so artistic. she is an artist herself and i grew up watching her sew, paint and craft. so i guess you could say that if it wasn’t for her, i would not be the artist that i am. i really could share any of my art and say that it was inspired by her. but i especially think that my pieces using stitching are so “her” because i grew up falling asleep to the sound of the sewing machine every night. i think that is one of the reasons that sewing is so therapeutic to me. of course, i only use my sewing machine for art and hardly ever for anything practical. thanks mom for being so much of my inspiration. i love you!
