There are so many great things happening at the moment with my art. The commission, the Patti Digh book, the sense that things are really moving forward creatively.
In other parts of my life things feel really damn hard. I am sick for the umpteenth time this year, we are broke, our sense of stability is completely up in the air with the impending house sale, I buggered my knees running, and it goes on. We are holding ourselves together but some days it is only just.
So that's me. The plain ugly truth. I feel like I should be celebrating all the good things that are happening and focusing on the positives, but the truth is at times I just can't see the forest for the trees.
However, I am no quitter. I am digging deep into my trust in the universe, my faith and hope. There is a purpose to all that is happening, I'm sure of it, and calm seas are surely just around the bend.
On a brighter note the random generator picked some giveaway winners for me. Liesl was just remarking on the chances of the number 1 coming up in her giveaway and here it is again picking her as the number 1 commenter on my giveaway. Cool huh? Liesl is the winner of a set of limited edition 3 Parts Faith, Two Parts Hope prints.
The second winner was commenter number 17. Cherie from Waste Not Do Want. Cherie you win your choice of print from my Etsy shop. Get in touch so we can arrange it.
I've finally got around to adding some new stock to my Etsy shop. You can now purchase 'Three Parts Faith' and 'Two Parts Hope' as individual prints or in a set. I'm doing a limited edition run of 20 of these prints so if you want them you'll need to get in quick.
landscape prints. There are 4 different prints to choose from. Again these are a limited edition run of 15 of each so snap them up if you're keen.
Now for a couple of last things. I've created a link on the blogtoberfest page to the 2010 sign up list so you can easily find it if you want to keep visiting new blogs. I've also created a link to all my 2010 posts in case you need to find something.
Lastly I want to give another great big shout out to Kellie from 74 Lime Lane for her fabulous work on the button for this year. And to everyone who joined in, came along for the ride, took up the challenge and made this year's blogtoberfest another great success, a big cheers to you too.
Don't worry about my spirits peeps. I'll be full of sunshine and hope again shortly. It's all part of the journey.
I'm taking a little computer break for the next few days while Ms L and I make some big decisions about our next steps. I'll be back real soon.
