LIFE is full of speed bumps

Awhile back I made this Art Angel and I would just like to dedicate this to all my artsy bloggers out their that are carrying a heavier stress load than normal.

Lately I have noticed on several of my crafty friends blogs that life is throwing them some curve balls. We all know this happens, it just seems like so many are facing health, financial or family situations right now. Many have dropped out of challenges due to overwhelming stress in their lives and even the design team I am on " Our Vintage Affair ", is having to take a break due to "stuff"going on in several of our lives. Arts and crafts to so many of us is our relaxation but sometimes situations do not allow for them.

It wasn't too long ago that I didn't have any desire to get out my scissors, inks, or paper. Kind of scared that maybe I was no longer interested in doing this thing called "art"I did notice that I always seemed to go back to visiting everyone's blogs and checking out the newest tutorials on YOUTUBE therefore I knew it was just a slump I was in. I am so grateful for bloggers I have gotten to know, and they always seem to leave a comment right when I need it the most. So when your too tired to do anything crafty, when you have absolutely too much on your plate to take a bit of time to paint anything don't fret. There is a season for everything, and know I am thinking and praying for all you wonderful artist that have inspired me and I know you will be back real soon.Hugs and kisses Toni
