I Lost My Way

Sometimes, it is just plain hard to find a way back to blogging.
I have a new schedule of things-to-do for now and I am beginning to adjust.
But adjusting doesn't seem to keep me from crashing in the chair at night instead of creating art or blog posts.
I tell you this office has been so quite this week. Dear husband hasn't left the bedroom since he had surgery last Thursday and we came home on Saturday.
That means I'm in charge big time around here.
I'm in charge of this office....that's probably nothing new but I do miss his company.
I'm in charge of what and when he eats.....that's probably nothing new either but I do have to serve him. When I say he hasn't left the bedroom, I really mean he hasn't left the bedroom. He is being extra careful and is not to put any weight on his left leg at all for 6 weeks. He is in a straight cast type splint and can hop on one foot on crutches.
I mean to ask him but I really don't imagine that he played much hop-scotch as a kid because he is not too good hopping on one foot.
He will go next Wednesday to have staples removed and then maybe he will venture out of the bedroom.

Deryn and I want so bad to start signing you up for the new class,
Of Towers and Turrets
An Exquisite Fusion of Mixed Media and Mixed Metals.

The fact is my husband's accident and Deryn's change in vacation plans just gave us a little delay.
We have great hopes of greeting you and welcoming you next week.
We have a fun little video ready to show and tell about the class as well as a very in depth description of what all the hoopla is about.
Looking forward to a great weekend and wish one for you too.
♥ Sharon


  1. Three days ago I discovered your site--I have been glued here at the computer ever since. I am new to art journaling and need inspiration--I found lots here. I am a Texas girl with no journaling freinds nearby. Hope to find some here.

  2. Hi Sharon,
    Wishing your dear Hubby a speedy recovery and not many frustrated times!
    Happy creating,

  3. What a beautiful painting this is! You are very talented. Sorry to hear about your hubby - I pray that he heals well and that you will have energy to do all you need to do. I love your blog.

  4. Oh no! I hope your husband recovers well. Priorities change on a whim sometimes and you just have to go with it!

  5. So easy to get sidetracked but you had a good reason I completely get it when you say a different schedule really gets the focus changed. Wishing your husband a good recovery and not to lose strength as a result of this major injury.

    Your new painting takes my breath away, and those words were sort of in my head after hearing a very old CW song on the radio this morning, painting and song are beautiful. The coloring is magnificent.

    I do have a question, and that is the ning newwork will have to be rejoined in a paying way to keep taking part in the ning site is that correct. So one has to answer their email and make a decison and choice to continue???
    At least that is how I understand it and I think that is by Aug. 10.

    Maybe you will make an announcement regarding such on your blog, maybe I am not the only one who doesn't know for sure.

  6. Hi Sharon, you have been missed. I hope your husband has a speedy recovery. I am looking forward to the new class, although my art space is in disaray for a while. I miss creating so much. I am looking forward to getting back in the swing of things. Thank you for my little gift, made me smile:)

  7. Sharon-I was wondering where you were and now I know. Life has a way of changing your priorities and plans. I wish your hubby a quick recovery and for you, I wish you get back to normal soon. Being in demand is hard sometimes, but you have to go with the flow and remember that someday soon, you will be able to resume your artwork and blogging.
    I have been doing so much outside this summer that I've neglected my creative side too. It isn't by choice, but necessity. So I don't get upset...I know fall and winter is coming and I will be indoors once again, and will be able to delve into my artwork then.
    It is good to see you post and you have many prayers and good wishes coming your way.
    hugs, Sue K

  8. Hey Sharon! You're just experiencing what we all call Life. You just take care of your hubby ... don't worry about the class or anything else. We will all be here when you're ready!!!


  9. Hey Sharon, I have missed you, but I really understand that life sometimes throws us something that demands attention. I'm sending you both warm thoughts and prayers today for your hubby's complete recovery. xx

  10. Hi Sharon, Best wishes to you and your husband while he is recovering. Just remember we are all your followers and we will be here for you. When you have other things to tend to that is life my friend do not worry. I have to tell myself the same thing. We have to deal with life as it comes. I really hope for a speedy recovery and all the best for you!! This painting is remarkable, I love your work, it's completely unforgettable!!

  11. Sharon, Well, I've been missing you, so now I know why. My best to your hubby, bless his heart! And, to you to, for being a caregiver isn't easy.
    I will look forward to seeing your lovely pieces as time goes by..meantime take care of yourself also! pat

  12. I hope your husband's on the mend soon, we've missed your blog posts, but something has to give.

  13. Hi Sharon- so sorry to hear about your husband's accident and hope he heals quickly. You may find yourself in need of a glass of wine at the end of the days or at the very least hot chocolate!

    verifcation word- "ickbar" who thinks of these things and how old are they?

  14. Oh, do I feel for the two of you! Speedy recovery to your Dear Husband, that's for sure.

    We all certainly understand about the not blogging under the circumstances. And anyway, it's summer, everyone seems to get a little less bloggy in the summer... I think it's the heat!

  15. Oh, and thanks for the idea of the "point of perspective" comment you left on my blog. I found some great sites and even videos to help. I have vanishing points and horizon lines twirling in my head now!

  16. I'm glad that you are able to keep your sense of humor through this - hop scotch indeed! Just the thought of it sounds funny. It's scary to be injured like that, I can understand that he wants to follow doctor's orders completely. Good thing is that your trip is waiting at the end of it and that you'll have the 'me time' you need to recuperate. Wishing him a very fast recovery. xo

  17. Hi Sharon,
    Just love your latest work..such detail and colour, and so inspiring as always!...
    Hope Hubby is better soon!...xx..julia

  18. Do hope your husband continues to improve.
    Love the pictures of your art journalling!

    All best wishes

  19. Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your husband. I hope he heals quickly and as comfortably as possible. And you take it easy, too!
