Believe it or not, I'm still around

hello blogging friends, yes it's been a long, loooong time since I posted. I had good intentions of blogging regularly, unfortunately I stopped creating art for a while, and felt like I had nothing much to say. Summer came, and there were other things to work on. Besides, it felt like everyone had disappeared and gone to Facebook.
Well I caved and joined -had to, there was an art class I wanted and it was the only way I could join.
I'm there now after swearing I'd never do it, lol! and if you want to join me there, look me up and friend can search 'Pinkglitterfae Art'.

So what have I been up to? not much until the last couple of months when I started painting again. I'm working on my Christmas ACEOs , and managed to do a couple of original paintings for the holidays, including the reindeer you see up top, inspired by a workshop by Christy Tomlinson..
Below is a folk art madonna and child I finished, with lyrics from the song 'Mary did you know'.

I'm not sure about the direction of this blog, I just know that I miss it, and I will try and post my art and anything else I feel like whether it's read or not. The whole point is to create an online diary right? I also miss reading my favorite blogs, as Facebook moves so fast you can't keep up!

I hope my friends are still out there creating and trying to make the best life they can. I know the holidays can be very stressful, but I hope you are at least taking some time to nourish yourself. Everywhere around me I see people frantically running from one place to the next, trying to fit in all those errands, not really paying attention to the moment. I've also noticed some crankiness going on, lol! ah well, gotta love the holiday season right, lol?
thank you friends for reading my late night ramblings, I will be back soon with some of my fave Christmas movies to put you in the spirit.
