Finding Inspiration

I have been waiting to update my blog in hopes that inspiration would strike and I would have new artwork to share. Unfortunately, I have been stuck in an artist block, writer's block, and blogger block. I think this is one of the longest periods of time that I have gone since I can even remember without creating something. I kept thinking that if I just waited another couple of days, something would strike, but to no avail. I think the pressures of moving and selling our house and basically being a single Mom while my husband works so far away has just put a damper on my creativity lately.

Fortunately, things are now looking up - our house will be on the market this week, my parents are coming to help me with the final touches, the school year is almost over in which the girls and I will be able to move to Stephenville as well, and life will be much more like normal. Just the thought of all of those things I just listed leveling out seems to lift just about all of that dark stress cloud that has been looming over my head and preventing me from being my creative self.

I have started on a new painting, but have been slow on getting it finished. I am hoping to be able to finish it this week. Until then, I thought since I didn't have any of my artwork to share, I would share a couple more collage sheets for you to use in your artwork.

You are so sweet to share your collage sheets. They are always wonderful. Thank you again for allowing me to use your previous ones for the retreat. The ladies loved them. I pray your house sells quickly - and summer is almost here!!
Blessings

You have been on my heart many times (even though I don't really know you!) :-) God is healing my heart and bringing freedom to new places that needed His touch. I pray that this season of quiet from you is a time when Jesus is healing your heart! I'm praying for you today!

Hey Stacy, I don't know if you are even checking your blog, but if you are I wanted you to know I think about you and wonder how you are doing. Hope you have settled into your new home and are doing well.

I really like your art work and your generous collage sheets. Are you blogging else where now?

I want to thank you - each and everyone of you - for your kind words and thoughts. I promise I am still here, I've just been really busy getting settled in here after the move and getting over some health problems. I will be back full swing within the next couple of weeks I hope!
