For the week ahead…
I’m starting my hiatus to create this week. I have some larger driftwood pieces in mind, as well as some work with sand dollars, and finally my barnacles are looking clean enough to start to use. I picked up the barnacles last week or so. They were buried in muck and seaweed. I, of course, not afraid of a little muck- dug in deep to save these beauties. They are nice large clumps, and I have some cool things in store for them.
Our feature artist this Monday will be an Etsy Shop- OneClosetCat- by Yana. She has beautiful paintings, and we’ll do an up and close interview with her soon. Stop by her shop beforehand at www.oneclosetcat.etsy.com
And, lastly. My illness has taken a toll for the worse. I struggle everyday to keep some bit of normalcy. I have been undergoing testing all this week, and have many appts. next week. I may be looking at some unwanted down time with a heart surgery, and possibly another surgery to remove what looks like a tumor on my thyroid. At this time, I do not know if the tumor is cancerous, but should find out Monday. Have a follow up appt with cardiologist on Tuesday, so please keep me in your prayers and thoughts the next few weeks. I am moving forward with the ‘Creative Hiatus’ anyway. I need some down time for myself to create and immerse myself in the things I love.
But always, my Family and my LillyBelle, is always by my side. LillyBelle, my merdog, is so sweet, and keeps track and comforts me every step I take. What a loyal dog!
