Blog Anniversary...

I had a blog anniversary this month...3yrs! Where did time go?  I know it flew... I went back and read some of the posts, funny.  I still feel like I'm trying to find my place. Creativity is like a crow for me.  I tend to turn my head and run towards the next shiny object that attracts my attention.  Do you do that, sometimes?  I guess I can figure out which basket to put all my eggs in... Then I wonder, do I really have to?!   Thank you all for being part of my journey...  My goal is to comment more on your blogs. I do well for a while and then life tosses me off my path. I need Ninja skills, I guess ;D  I'd settle for less drama. 

Creativity belongs to all of us.  Some of us tuck it away and don't share, some share a lot, and some make a living at it.  I was hoping for something in between. I am finding, my schedule is changing again. Daughter's last day of 10th grade was yesterday. I'm in shock...the house was loud with teens and pizza last night.  Now, my mornings and evenings will be different.  I'm taking a few college courses and I applied for a job.  I'm not thrilled about the hours, but I use to do this job and enjoyed it. I was a Switchboard Operator.  When my daughter gets her driver's license, life will be different.   She is not ready, yet (neither am I).

I wanted to share a few bloggers who were with me in my humble beginnings.  I will return soon with poetry and I was given a couple of awards.  I want to thank Captain Alex and E.J. Wesley, for thinking of me!  :D   Their blogs are always entertaining, no matter the subject.  Stop by and say, "Hello". 

Becky Shander's art always inspires. I decided to be brave and comment on her blog and surprisingly she started to visit mine.  She has always been sweet and has a beautiful view of the world. Her art has inspired me and she told me to "believe"!   Stop by and visit this multi-talented lady~

Creativity is Happiness

 Thank you everyone! You all have touched my soul, in more ways than you could ever know! (((hugs)))

Congrats, Ellie, and a big thank you, too. For three years you have gifted us with such beauty, both visually with your art and photography, in the words of your inspiring and encouraging poems and words, and with your outlook on life. Keep making time to follow your art. It is your gift to the world. It is also your legacy, where your kids and grandkids can know who you are, some far distant day in the future.

Happy Anniversary Ella
It is a beautiful place to be part of. I was a reluctant blogger and it is all due to friends that I started one and thank goodness as it has allowed me to connect with likeminded people and it is such a supportive and caring and motivating environment.
Long may you be part of this world and continue to inspire us.
