Where Have I Been all Year?

Here.  Doing Gobliny Things.

Just not talking about it very much.

Honestly, Instagram makes me lazy.  I snap a photo, dual post it to Insta and FB and feel like I’ve done the necessary work to stay connected.

Instagram is great for sharing images but problematic for written ideas.  (Unless you are like my husband who has mastered the art of the tiny slidey text predictive keyboard on his smart phone.  That stuff makes me crazy.)

Maybe I’ll do better with blogging this spring.

Here are photos of some stuff I’ve worked on in 2017.   I focused a lot on adding wearables to my product range.  Dresses and tunics have proven to be very popular both online and at shows and I’ll be adding tees to my etsy shop later today so we’ll see how those are recieved.

I’ve also been doing a lot of reading in the past year – I mean, I read ALL the time anyway – but in the last year or so I’ve been reading a lot of books focusing on feminist spirituality, reaxaminations of history from a feminist persepective and partnership based social reform as a means of working through what I’m calling my “Faith Management Crisis.”   I’ll talk about that a little later.  It is having a big impact on my artistic goals and I’m almost ready to start talking about some of those.

In the meantime, here are some pretties that I’ve created this year.  Enjoy!
