I've been naughty...

well at least I feel naughty. I just have to say that I have not been around here because I haven't felt like it.  Not that I don't love those of you who pop by to visit me and I wasn't even here to say hello when you did. I feel like I have been on a journey....

Where you ask? Where have I gone. "Here and there" I say. Mostly there I guess. What can I say, I am fickle. I go where the wind blows me and lately it has been away from the computer, the internet, etc. I often wonder how so many people seem to find the time to have kids, jobs, successful blogs and Facebook pages, post enough things to keep people interested and manage to keep there houses clean too! I guess I just started to feel overwhelmed. I had so many things that I wanted to do, things that needed to be done around the house. Bike rides to take and walks with hubby. 

It is so easy to get caught up in social networks, there seems to be new ones all the time. You just feel this stress... the need to keep things fresh and keep it coming. It is sometimes this delicate balancing act and it is hard to perform. I have a few things on the go right now. A collection of mixed media acrylics, some e-courses, yes e-courses (mixed-media, water-colour and photoshop). So much to do so little time and only so much sleep you can skip hahaha......and laundry. 


All I can do is be me. The way that I am.

Sometimes I just feel like you have to escape to get things done sometimes Theresa! I wonder sometimes with all this stuff to amuse ourselves with on the internet plus everything else we do if we are not inflicting ourselves with multitasking overload! Love back at ya!

Don't ever feel guilty about getting your priorities straight. Family,friends & responsibilities to these are what count. Don't get me wrong I love your blog where I get loads of papercrafting inspiration but I am also encouraged & inspired when I see others taking time for the people & things that really count. hugs

Oh yes, I know EXACTLY what you mean, sometimes I just take an internet vacation! NEVER apologize for living your life the way that you want to. You've got to be who you are and do what you want/need to!

I still think you need to get your act together!! LOL- a few more pep talks and we should be good to go! You have so much to offer. So many 'bigger' places you can go, Roberta! your talent is insurmountable.....let's just get it there! I'm here for you to kick you in the arse! And love you up too! LOL (perhaps I should stop bringing home new stuff for you to get wrapped up in, and you could concentrate more!).

XOXOXOXOXO

Roberta, we live in a chaotic world of clammour. Chosing to honour yourself by taking the time to be quiet, to do those things that re-energize you and fill you up with life's sizzle once again IS being authentic. More of us should take a brush from you paint pot! I'm totally looking forward to seeing more of your work and your words when you are ready. Stay strong, stay calm, stay YOU!
