My plan was to post about our holiday adventures as they happened. ha ha! I don’t know why I ever think I will have time to do that. Between work and preparing for the holidays, I’ve hardly had time for anything!

But I still wanted to share some photos. We had many adventures – we went to Longwood Gardens, saw The Nutcracker, and made a gingerbread house. Buster, my daughter’s classroom mascot, visited with us for a weekend.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of What If I’m a Mermaid?.  I thought I would take a moment to revisit my very first post.  I had written a list of goals which I hoped to achieve through my blog, or online art journal as I preferred to call it back then.  I can say that I have pretty much failed at all seven of my goals.

1.  Mark my artistic creations, endeavors, hopes, dreams, failures, and accomplishments.   – ok, I do some of this, but I could go deeper.

2.  Share with other women the struggle to maintain a “room of one’s own” when one has so many other responsibilities to tend to.   –  I have spoken of this a bit.

3.  Share my art with others.   – I have accomplished this one!

4.  Put myself and my work out into the world.   – This also I have accomplished.

5.  Challenge my creativity.   – I have done this a bit, with a couple challenges, such as the Halloween inchies I did last year.  Actually I think that’s the only challenge I’ve done!

6.  Meet new people.   – I would say that I have accomplished this in a general way.  Blogging has given me an opportunity to learn about topics and see things from different perspectives.

7.  Allow those interested in my work an opportunity to learn more about my processes of thought and creativity.   – I do speak a bit about my process but I could certainly explore that more.

Here are my new goals:

1.  Share my work, dreams, failures, accomplishments, and processes.

2.  Challenge my creativity via special projects.

3.  Encourage others to explore their creativity.

Thanks for stopping by!
