all of a sudden, i'm burned out. a little bit tired, a little bit lost, a little bit frustrated.  

so time to stop and smell the roses or so i say to myself as i continue spinning my wheels. at least i stopped painting and sewing a bit to see where all this is going.  and while i'm finding the why...somebody on etsy purchases one of my paintings and another few buy out all the pinnies and i make EXPLORE on Flickr three times in less than a week. so, i must be doing something right.  

it's just that art is intense and alot like giving birth, so much energy goes into each piece, so much love. it drains you, takes the sap out of you.


so a break was in order to play at something else. and that something else has been the garden mainly and the house.
or should i say a house book? 

so you see, it does all come down to the house after all

so my next post will be all about the house. all about the tilling and the planting and the cooking and the hanging and a tad about the hoe down.

It's true, it always comes down to the home. Where else can we feel safe and happy, where else can we recharge and keep going?

my dear constanza, as far as i'm concerned you're doing *everything* right. i sure do understand about taking a break, stepping back from creating, though. art *does* take a lot of energy. it's easy for me to forget this.

love...

You are so important in my creative life. I feel so close to you, even downloaded a picture of you and your sister out in nature so you are on my iphone all the time. Waving at you once again.

LA creatividad es un don Constanza,no un castigo. Hay que disfrutarla y exprimirla hasta la última gota. El paso de los años nos envejece, pero nos hace más fuertes e independientes y eso es muy, muy bueno, así que ánimo y para adelante, siempre adelante y disfrutando- Bsts.
