TMI for 2015

Hey there! How does 2015 find you?
 Off to a great start, I hope. 

Me? Well, the last couple of years life stuff overruled art-stuff. Health-stuff overruled life-stuff.... and so it goes. Nothing "drama" but nothing worth sharing either. Just trying to get the most out of every day. Not wanting to be a downer has led to a lack of blogging on my part. (Lame excuse, I know.) But, as this is my fess-up-and-move-on post, I'm just leaving it out there.

There have been some unexpected bonuses to my 2014 "down time", including hours to read and listen to music. Also, time to visit other blogs, something I'd missed out on for a while. Glancing around the web a common theme for 2015 (besides dieting / paleo / whole 30) seems to be a new focus on on sharing real-life and not just happy-happy-joy-joy posts. It is an interesting idea and I look forward to seeing what some of my favorite folks share this year.

It is said that you should never apologize when serving food or when blogging. The idea being that your audience doesn't know what you meant to serve in the first place (before you burned or burned out). Well, I'm gonna anyway. If you've stuck it out with me though the blogging decline, (gawd, I luv ya!) many thanks! 

Hopefully things will get more interesting around here. While I am not as articulate, productive, or positive as I was 5+ years ago, I am still here. I just process things in little blips, shorter sentences and (of course) random musical clips. There will still be giveaways, new WIPs, DIY faves, some original tutorials and occasional interviews.

It will be interesting to see how 2015 plays out. 
Thanks for joining me for the ride!


  1. There's definitely something to be said for still being there/here!
