Searching for the Creative Zen

Each day I try to do something that is creative - it's my happyness. It is not as easy as before but I'm seeing changes in the art I draw and the jewelry I make.

Life's Changes

Very often in life changes come alone that will end one part of your life and start another. In May I had one of these changes. I'm not sure what will happen next - I don't know from day to day how I will react to tiny little things not to mention bigger bumps in the road.

During this time my creative life has slowed to a near stop. My drawings are sad and my quilting is non existent. 

I know things will continue to change and evolve but for now it's hard to see past the hour I am in.
