New Beginnings and a Giveaway
Two Dresses Studio. As you may or may not know, I took a LONG hiatus from my blog. I was feeling burnt out, dispirited and downright ambivalent. I was hoping for that lightning bolt of genius to strike me and tell me what was wrong. This came in the form of a post by Lenna Andrews. Lenna had created skinny pages for me on a "Woman Who Dared", Martha Graham and had written a very personal story about her connection with this great woman. That post nudged me into realizing that I needed to write blog posts about what was going on in my life, in my heart and in my head. AND I had to be kind to myself and allow time in between posts if that was what I needed to do.
Enter dear Trudi. Trudi and I have known one another for a while and really "clicked" right from the beginning. We've had wonderful conversations via email and have exchanged art in groups. Trudi is an amazing artist and designs blogs as part of her artistry. For the past week or so, we have been exchanging email messages fast and furiously. Trudi had seen my photograph of the baby robin and asked if she could play with it. I was amazed at the depth of our friendship and how well Trudi knew me as a person and wove what she knew into the blog header with symbolism.
So without further adieu, I present to you my new look and my new lease on blogging....oh, and a new piece that I created on the weekend. I'm giving this altered tin away in celebration so please just leave me a comment if you'd like a chance to win it. I'll draw on Sunday.
