Another Year Flew By....and My Ramblings

Here we are at the end of 2009! I have learned a lot over the last year, about creative processes, people and life in general. It's true, we are never to old to learn! This year I became a "Senior Citizen"....LOL, and I took my first discount :)...I cannot even tell you how hard it was to get the words out,
"I am a Senior"..I about choked on the words :)..I don't feel any different inside than I did when I was younger..but looking in the mirror reminds me..LOL
As far as being Creative, I struggled a bit this year, I'm trying to develop
a little different style. I'm on the right track, finally, and hope to get some new creations done very soon..Lots of sketches done!
My Daughter moved out and in with her B/F in '09...Nice to see her really happy,
and nice to have an empty nest! Awwww what to do with her room :)!
My lil Grandson will be a year old in a week or so, I miss him as much as ever,
and Christmas is hard for me with my Son & Family living in Colorado..You Mom's
out there will understand :)...
I'm not making any New Years Resolutions this year, What's the point, I
never keep them anyway! All I know is I want 2010 to be my best year , in terms
of creativity! I am the happiest when I am creating (aside from seeing my Grandson)....I love sitting in my work room for hours on end and working.
I Love that weird little world my mind slips away to when I'm creating.
My Husband, who is semi-retired, doesn't "get" that place, but at least
respects my need to create, which is all I've asked :)..
My best Friend still lives in Idaho, where she moved to, 2 or 3 years ago,
I can't even remember how long now..and even though we talk a lot on the phone,
I still miss her very much :(....But she has met new friends finally and I'm happy for her, but boy do I miss our breakfasts out, looking at each others new work,
and her going to shows with me!
I've met lots of new online friends who are fellow artists this year, and I'm grateful for them, and for my "old" friends as well...LOL...and you know who you are!
So From the bottom of my heart..I'd like to Wish You All.......
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hugs,
Candy

You have a wonderful and Happy New Year, Candy. I can totally relate to your post...could almost copy it and it would be me. You create wonderful pieces and I'll look forward to see what your mind creates as you slip away to that weird little world.

xx's to you,~~~Lisa~~~

now I must decide what to change my avatar to!

What a sweet post, Candy. I normally ramble this time of year, but this year...I am in a different state of mind. I have not decided if that is a good or bad thing, it just is ;)

I wish you all the BEST in 2010 and hope to grow this year in every way possible.

Cheers,
~Tonya
