I've been artistic all my life but it's only since I retired almost 3 years ago that I've really had the time to dedicate to doing creative activities. And I haven't looked back since.
I love to share what I'm working on and maybe even share a few techniques for others to try.
That's why I love to blog.
By making the commitment to blog (fairly regularly) it inspires me to keep learning and challenging myself. I love to see what others are working on - and I hope you like what you see here.
I love to make handmade books and mixed media art - incorporating thread drawings, or fabric, or coloured pencil or even acrylic into the pictures and the books. Taking art courses keeps me inspired too, plus teaching to kids and seniors - this too forces me to keep coming up with new ideas, some of which I've been able to share with others.
And here is a link to the "Grow Your Blog" site - with lots and lots of creative blogs listed:

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
