Well made it right through the year! I am so pleased I haven’t missed a day of making a collage, admittedly I have been a bit slow at posting the images, but I have 12 big piles of collages.
Still not quite sure what to do with them all, but that’s something to think about.
I am so pleased with myself I am setting myself another year long project, to make a print everyday. I am not going to limit the size this year, so some may be small and others bigger. Hope you can join me in my 2018 adventure.
All of a sudden its the end of the year. How many times do I hear people say they are surprised how time has flown by? Me included, I have had one heck of a year, participated in so much, but then I feel I have let plenty go undone. For me my cup is often half empty so I am not surprised by me thinking I haven’t acheived much. As I sit with my daughter planning her 21st birthday celebrations in April I do wonder how much time I have freewheeled through, could things have been different if… But no I am happy where I am, today I am here. And that is enough.
Two days before the end of the year. I am once again battling with the demon of decision making . You hear so many inspirational stories of people overcoming the odds and doing great things. I have lost count of how many times I have visited an exhibition and said , ‘that’s just what I was doing 6 months ago’. But my work stays hidden away from the viewers eyes , burning a hole in my heart because I didn’t show it to anyone. This year has been different, I have been working on these collages, and applying to work in different places. I still have a long way to go before every application I fill in is sent and I make the work that is in my maze of a mind.
Oh my days, you would think it had never happened before, but every year people seem to be running around trying to get themselves sorted before Christmas Day. It does make me surprised that such a Christian celebration takes over everyone. I wish everyone , no matter which religion or not you follow, a happy and restful holiday.
Oh I should be able to be better at this posting lark. Almost 12 months of this and this is my worst month ever. Well here you are lets see if the Winter Solstice yesterday can put me on track for the rest of the month.
Well I am not doing so good posting the collages so far this month. Which is a disappointment to me. I do worry about ‘paying my way’, and I have gotten caught up in making some money to pay some bills which has left me tired at the end of the days, and I am not good at this blogging malarkey at the best of times.
