A Picture of an Artist

6 Apr

Not much knitting/crocheting/spinning has been getting done around here, due to a few weeks of a hectic work schedule, and it’s killing me! As much as I appreciate my source of income, I definitely do not appreciate having to work for it! Ha. For now I just dream about the day when my art is my sole source of income.

This month is a hard one for me. 3 years ago my sister Heather was diagnosed with cancer. 2 years ago she died. I don’t know how I would have gotten through all that if not for God, my family and friends, and my art. Writing, crafting, these are the things that allow me to express all the emotions I keep bottled up inside; it’s what keeps me functioning, alive.
Today I went and donated 11 inches of my hair to Locks of Love. I’d been growing my hair out for 3 years now, so it seemed right to do it in April again. The new ‘do is definitely a hit.

Now that the craziness has calmed down, this artist should be getting back to work on the things she likes to do best.
