I just finished this cute little knitted lamb this weekend. 

This is a different view, not quite as flattering for little lamby, but I wanted to share some of my other creations.

And not only did I finish one project, I started a couple more.  It's been awhile since I've been able to have time to knit and paint both in one weekend.  And I got some raking done in my front yard.  I did not realize how stressed out I was becoming from not having time or energy to be creative. 

I am always surprised at the depth of stress and sadness that comes over me when I am unable to be creative.  Everything in my life becomes overwhelming.  So finally, I am settling down now that I've purchased my home and can begin my creative journey again with a new sense of purpose and focus.

Holding my breath

I've been holding my breath for a while now.  Waiting for spring.  This photo was taken last year and I look forward to seeing this tree bloom again, especially since now, I own this tree, as of today!  Yup, that's right, John and I are now the proud owner of the little house we have been renting for the past year.  It's been a long, long winter, working through all the paperwork and hoops to jump when purchasing a home.  So now, I can exhale...

She had always been strong

I completed this Mixed Media Artwork about a month ago.  I had intended to sell it on my Etsy shop, (which I have been sorely neglecting) but this is my first official attempt with mixed media and I think I may have to keep this.  
As much as it is extremely satisfying to sell my artwork, creating can not always be about making money.
