The year in review

Looking back, 2008 was a year to remember. Not only for the political issues, the planet issues and the new medical discoveries... but also more close to home, in my little world, we are ALL still here, and we are still in one piece. 2008 was a year for trips to the emergency room in my family. Many trips for my imaginative and inquisitive son. Thank goodness he still has all his fingers.

Arts and craft related I learned a ton this past year. I met a bunch of wonderful creative people, and I made great new online friends.

I miss painting and I finally now started to get the "itch" back to paint! For a while my muses went away (I blame it on the deep cleaning of the room and desk!) but I think they're coming back. Also, I am happier with my level of doll making now to a point of feeling ready to start listing. As I posted some time ago, I wanted to make 3D figures of my "niƱas" I was painting in a small format, and then I just was so fascinated with the ideas, techniques, styles and details, that in the journey I dropped my brushes for a while.
I have to admit mixed feelings about listing, as I love every single one of those lil'things I've made ;o) With each of them I learned and discovered something new about materials and procedures, and also about me. That's very rewarding.

I have been sculpting smaller and smaller pieces. Next thing you know, I'll fit one whole sculpt in a post stamp lol (yeah right) :oP

Thanks so much for stopping by and read my blog. May you have a wonderful blessed new year.
Hugs from the land of the tumbleweeds!
