I've had a request.
Well, friends, I've received a request from my hubby to keep posting on my blog. He thinks it would be good for me. I agree, although I still have some reservations. I love my blog, but sometimes I feel distracted by it (not in a bad way). The wonderful thing about being married is you have someone to hold you accountable. Someone who's there for you and offer some advice. God love him, he just wants to be able to read my blog.
Perhaps he's not the only one who wants to read more.
So I will keep posting on a regular basis. I had planned not to post anything new until November. Just know that I am currently working on some ideas I developed in 2005. They were abandoned because I didn't take them too seriously. It's because I tend to get too distracted and, quite frankly, trying to think of ways to earn some extra income. I've lost my focus and identity trying to make some money.
There is an artist, Maddy Nupp McDonald, who was very frank about herself on her website. It has touched me deeply ever since I read it. In fact, I was moved to tears because I could really identify with her. Lately, I've been thinking about her and realized I needed to take some time off and really think about what direction I want to go with my art. So in the meantime, please visit her website, read her "about me" page and buy her work.
That's all I have to say about that for now.
Please note that Brap is updated on it's original post. That way you can see all of the doll's progress in one post.
