New Year & a Clean Slate

Breathe, Love, Share Digital Journaling
Currently a student in Jessica Sprague & Nancie Rowe Janitz's Digital Art Journaling 

It's been forever & a day since I've posted.  I have a list a mile long of posts that I never got to.  I've decided to forgive myself & Let It Go!  Sometimes I wonder if blogging is the correct vehicle for me.  I spent so much time & energy on the minutia of protecting my work via digital editing - scaling the photos down, putting a watermark... Sometimes it took away the joy of posting & sharing.  Since we're so far away from loved ones, I posted all the time on FB, which also has potential issues, but still not to the extent of how often I'd love to share my work.  I guess I'm going to have to figure this out!

FYI, it's a FREE class & Traci is Awesome!

I am currently taking a few classes on-line.  I need to learn to pace myself.  There have been a few times I've gotten in a pickle & not finished a class.   Ha ha, something else to add to "the list" - I don't do resolutions, more goal setting if you will.  I stumbled upon Michelle Ward's current crusade - Make a Tada list.  I am so on that & hopefully it gets posted as another Jan blog post & not a few months down. 
I promise to not be a stranger on my own blog!

Happy New Year!  This was Kuwait on New Year's Day

Thank you Gabriela. I can't get enough classes & they are quite limited here in Kuwait so I've lived off on-line classes. Happy New Year!!
