Seems like every blogger hits a point where they have to apologize for something on their site:  a misunderstanding, an offensive presumption, or—in many cases—a lack of activity. Seeing as my last post (in, yes, January) talked about the themes of passion-compassion, I’m instead going to be compassionate with myself. I’ve been away from the blog a bit, but that has given me more time for my 9-5 job, for family, for my marriage, even for time spent in the art studio.

I didn’t forget you, bloggity, however (cue the strains of “Don’t Cry for me, Argentina”…). In fact, I’ve been connecting with people like mad over on Twitter (follow me) and really enjoying our conversations and connections there. I’ve also been participating in ProBlogger’s 31 Days to a Better Blog. I’ve been thinking more about what I want out of my blog, what I want to share here, and how I want to continue to develop and promote my artistic/creative growth.

Like all things, this is still a work in progress, but I did want to give a suggestion that there will once again be signs of life in these parts. In the long term, I’ve started working on a redesign of this site. Since I don’t yet have a timeline on that, I also have some short-term goals: I plan to post more photos of works in progress, return to the Friday 5 photos, will be sharing my ideas about a mail art project that’s been percolating in my brain, and will host my first blog giveaway.

Thanks for your patience—now time to reap some rewards!

Thanks for reading!

    Yay you’re back! I’ve been missing Friday 5 terribly.

    However, this ONLY just showed up on my feed reader (timestamped May 22 3:25am) – something funky going on there.

    I’ve been going through a slump for a lot of the same reasons – my day job is eating my life, but that will ease up dramatically the first of July – but I got a couple of Sunday Slideshows up after a several-months lull, and I’m really hoping this is the week I start getting it up consistently, and maybe some actual posts too.
