I have been working hard and really loving coming up with some new prints. Something positive for people to put on their wall or desk or to buy for someone they care about. I want people to believe in themselves and have reminders that life is good. I am going through some stuff in life myself and know that positive people, books and messages have helped keep me going. Being creative is really healing so as well as helping myself and trying to make changes for others.

Well a lovely lady by the name of Melanie has done up a button for me that is my word for the year and that is Happiness. I have never been one for New Years resolutions but I liked the idea  when it was suggested that you  pick a word for the year and try to focus on it throughout that year. Many words went through my mind like kindness or belief but I thought if I concentrate on Happiness and looking for it in every situation it will bring only the positive things into my life.( If you would like to see Melanie's website follow the link http://www.onlyabreath.com/2012/12/theyre-here-free-one-word-blog-buttons ) Maybe you might want to choose one word for your year - it is never to late.

So whenever you do set your self a task like Happiness you know it will be tested. And so I have found that I have had to try and keep happy even though I had to leave my job. I started a new job in September but it was not meant for me. It was something that made me unhappy and uneasy. Somehow you have a feeling when you know something is not the right fit for you but you persist for many reasons until you find the toll is too great. The only way to true happiness is to trust your inner voice. So I am now looking for something new and while I am looking I will continue to paint and learn. Here is what has been keeping me busy this last week.

Well I have been missing in action from my Blog but for good reasons. I have been so busy painting and I find it tricky to balance my time between painting and Blogging and putting things on my Etsy shop. There are just not enough hours in a day. I am also doing on-line classes  learning more techniques and using new products which is really exciting. This year has started off a wonderful year will all this movement in the right direction - getting to spend more time with paint on my hands (and my clothes and the table). That is like heaven. So now the challenge is Balance. Anyway I wanted to add some of the works here that I have just completed and put in my Etsy shop. Hope you like them . Also great news I have made my first Etsy sale and a sale of one of my paintings from two lovely people who were kind enough to share my new adventure. Thanks to you both
