rested and rejuvinated

I've been feeling really tired. Frantic. About a lot of things -- but mostly where this art journey is taking me -- and since I was officially done with my Design Team responsibilities for EK Success last week I decided to take some time to re-group, reflect on the last 9 years, and figure out what direction the next 9 years of my career are going to take me.

I didn't make  any art.
I stayed off FaceBook -- well mostly.
I stayed off Pinterest.
and Twitter.
and Klout.
and Skype.
and I didn't ready all the daily blogs I like to read.
And I gave up coffee. again. 

My husband and I also started a juicing and raw food diet 2 weeks ago -- to help his arthritis. So I juiced and prepared lots of raw food. And I made lists. And I visited with family that was in town all week.

Today I feel refreshed.
Ready to make a game plan for tackling where I want to go and what I want to do. 

Ready to open my eyes to the beautiful world around me.
Ready to start new things. New classes, new endeavors. New teaching gigs (I've already got 3 lines up for this fall -- wahoo!) and new art projects. Yes. I am ready for the next chapter in my Artsy Fartsy Life!

What are you ready for?
Thanks for stopping by -- have a great week. 


  1. Great to see you back refreshed Catherine -sometimes we need to do that. I am having the opposite problem of struggling to get going again after six weeks away! I feel as if I have forgotten everything I used to do. So I'm clearing out the craft room, dumping a whole load of stuff, then I'm going to get back to doodling and painting some art journal pages based around my current goal of losing a stone and getting alot more exercise (also for my arthritis).

    I love the colours in your journal pages - gorgeous!

  2. Glad to have you back & rejuvenated! Now let's kick some artsy fartsy butt!!!
