How does TWO years fly by so fast?

It's time to get back to truly "WHY NOT BOTH" I need to find the balance of working and living life.

I'm going to start this journey by joining the group "The Artistic Mother by Shona Cole". No, I'm not a mother but I am a busy woman that loves being creative and finds it hard to find the time. This is going to be a great transition for me!

I'm very excited!


  1. So excited you have joined! This is going to be so much fun keeping each other accountable!

  2. I have a special message for participants of The Artistic Mother's Art Group on my blog. I will be posting regular updates, tips for doing the projects and notes of encouragement. One of the future postings will be about the upcoming Flicker group for participants. I will have information for alternative ways the projects can look like and so many other things. There is a possibility that our group may be featured in a major art publication at some point, which will go unnamed at this time. We are going to be featured at Designing Moms soon. Everyone will want to post photos of their best work on their blogs because these publications may choose photos of some of the participants' work. I will do a post soon on how to take great photos to help you best showcase your work. I cannot possibly contact each participant individually when something important arises; so if you could check my blog often, that would be great. I don't want you miss anything. To make it easier for yourself, you could add my blog to your blog list. Then you will see when I have posted and you will know when to come.

    Tomorrow I will have tips for doing the first project.

    I posted a message today about getting started on The Artistic Mother workshop.

    Thank you again for being a part of this group. I know we will all get so much out of it and learn how to balance family and art time.

  4. Hello Shawa, so nice to meet you!
    You were so sweet to leave a kind thought and let me know you stopped by. We two are in the same boat...busy without little ones. Sure glad for this group!

  5. Shawna,

    Glad that you didn't let "motherhood" hold you back from joining the group. Truly, it is a group of busy, creative women and you definitely fit the bill!
