I knew I'd been absent from this blog for a while. But wow, seriously, I have not posted since the beginning of April. That's like, um, 3 months, isn't it??
I have excuses. Yep.
1) Life/Work/Baby - all of these things take time. Even tho I only work part time (thankfully), it has a way of consuming all non-baby minutes of my life.
2) Baby is actually now a toddler. And since it became nice outside (in um April), we tackled gardening projects and sampled dirt and leaves and some edibles from around the yard. Unlike last year where she wanted to be solely attached to Mama, this year, she is running around free. It's amazing how fast they grow up, but that first year is a hard one to get through. Now we are almost through year 2!!
3) After I finished my last journal (see that April entry), I lost my journal mojo. I started another journal, but floundered. Now I am starting back up, so hopefully I'll have some new posts soon. I realized I kinda need to get some thoughts out on paper to save my sanity and alleviate anxiety.
Here's something completely unrelated to my excuses. This is a drawing I did in the winter when I decided to work on my drawing skills (one of the few good enough to show you). I colored it in crayon and then did an ink wash. Crayons are pretty baby friendly now that she doesn't put EVERYTHING in her mouth.
Suzi Blu explains Moleskine love in one of her youtube videos. Like she said, if you get it, you get it, if not, there's not much we can say. It's not a big deal if you don't and want to journal in something else. That's the beauty of art journaling, you go your own way.
Anyway, gardening season is winding down for me (more my enthusiasm than the actual season), so I hope to post more. But we've got a big trip coming up (international travel with a toddler, weeeeeeeee! but we want to visit relatives and stuff), so I'm still not sure how much I'll post. This is why I recommend getting a blog reader. I like Google Reader. I used to have bloglines, but I prefer Google Reader now, it's far more reliable.
