Many Changes

Many changes since I posted throws us such curves. In one day I went from being totally content at home to accepting a full time job. I wasn't looking for a job, it, or they found me. It was kind of funny as I had been wondering about where my life was going, what my purpose was...all those things that "hit" us at times and make us contemplate as to why we are here. I thought I was finished with the corporate world and with just one phone call, it all changed. It's funny, but I have just settled in like I was never gone. I love being back with people, having morning coffee on the drive in. I guess God had different plans for me as I feel so content. I haven't had a moment to slow down and make some art since I returned to work, but I did manage to make this portfolio the weekend before I returned to work. It's a gift for my Sister. She so admired the portfolio I bought from the wonderful and talented DJ Pettitt. If you ever have a chance to take one of her classes, you should! I'll "blog" when I can...thank you for stopping by...

Hey there Lorraine! This is fabulous! Your sister will be so thrilled. You have so much talent. I hope you will have time to create now that you are back working full time. I know you are a lot like me, and even before I quit my job to be a full time artist, I wasn't happy unless I found time to create.
Thank you for the kind words and best wishes in your new job!

Congratulations on your new job, Lorraine! I'm glad that you have found something that will help to fill that void that's been missing in your life.

Your art journal is beautiful! Your sister will be thrilled to receive it.

Wonderful portfolio Lorraine. I'm sure your sister will love it. Did you use the fusing technique?
