Thanks everyone! It does feel nice to be able to "talk" to others. I have a few girl friends that I do talk to but honestly I don't want to the the friend that always unloads every time you talk to her..kwim?
Dini I did some art journaling before everything went to heck and you are right, it is kinda freeing. I hadn't thought much about it to be honest, but I think you are right..it would be a good place to play and not feel like I need to make something "show" worthy. That is part of my problem I think. I haven't done a lot so I am kinda out of practice and nothing is working..and I KNOW that art takes practice. It always seemed to come naturally to me so I think that is frustrating me more than anything right now. I do think that it is like riding a bike..and it will come back to me.
I am doing those classes at my dd's school and I know I will get inspired with all of those kids. Kids are SO darned creative and imaginative..it's hard not to catch the bug from them ya know.
