Happy New Year Everyone!

I am glad 2011 is done for so so many reasons. Of course, the economy and political shenanigans and whathaveyou, but the autumn/winter was a sad one. There were four deaths including my father's passing, and my beloved sister in law's mother plus a dear friend within five weeks of each other.

Ugh. I feel like I am just now getting my feet underneath me again.

"Work" is incredibly off the chain and everyone of course is happy to have a job when they have one, and I do love what I do, but it's with a happy heart that I face 2012 and MORE ART SHENANIGANS.

Yes, I am indeed involved in the Sketchbook Project for 2012. The subject is fascinating and I had picked it quite some time oddly enough before the turn of the wheel -- Life Underground. Some of you may remember that the Myth of Demeter and Persephone is one of my favourites.

I also am at the halfway point in the novel I've been swearing to write for quite a while now. And I am back into costumery, movies, and reading. Visiting friends through blogs, visiting Miss Jeanne when she came over from London (gosh, I hope this year sees me back over there!).

So while it has been a dip downwards on this nutty rollercoaster we call life, things have evened out and I am buckled back in for the next adventure. Mmm, maybe I should just free fall this ride.

A visit with Art Shenanigans this weekend. I have indeed missed you all. It's been tough being away.

Happy New Year Candace! I have been meaning to visit since your new year's visit to me but have not-sorry! It was lovely to hear from you. I am sorry to hear about your sad news for 2011. A new year is a good thing for beginning to start on the healing path. I look forward to seeing news of your art shenanigans, and maybe meeting up again if you do make it to London this year?

Candace, you have been rebooting for a while now. Need some inspiration?
