So I had this really really old sweater and I kept thinking I should do something...dear god, someone stop me before I get more hobbies,,,,or before the hobbies take over my house, or my family has to do an intervention-have to go shrink some more sweaters now....

Added a light color wash because it needed something-even though I really did like the original-I need to get a deeper sepia shade. I have tried with tea and sepia paint I may have to go bold and do it really dark....

Life can change in an instant. I know that in my mind, but when it actually happens to you, you suddenly realize all the time you have wasted by wishing you were other than what you are. How grateful you are to have created a life and that you can change it up, make new decisions, see it in a different light, pursue what you know in your heart you were meant to do. My father at 78 has pancreatic cancer. He is calm, waiting for them to tell him exactly what it is and what can be done. I am calm because I think I am old enough to not deny that death is what happens to all of us. We somehow live thinking we can out run it....and then you get a bit older and things start happening that remind you that you have no control over that. A friends husband was hit by a car and is in a coma with brain an instant that family's life is changed forever. These two things happening so close together has made me appreciate all that I have. I hope I can learn that lesson and burn it into my soul.

Started Etsy again, trying to figure out what sells. I sold a card the first day I put stuff up, which always makes me is not like jewelery-that you can change everyday and are always ready to buy. Art lives with you and so people are very particular...even when you price it so cheaply its a sin. But I really love doing it, so I am thinking about starting to give stuff away as my storage closet is over full........maybe giving things up will open some new space
in my life
