It's Wednesday already?



Here are a couple of ATCs (artist trading cards) I made for a trade with Tracey on flickr.
I haven't had much art time. I've been busy with taxes, doctor's appointments, and just generally trying to catch up on my life.
Furthermore, I'm trying to focus on taking care of my health--something I was going to do back in September when I put my daughter in school instead of homeschooling her. At that same time the opportunity to showcase and sell my art opened up, so that ended up taking priority. It's been a six-month whirlwind, for which I'm thankful, but now I really, really, really need to take care of me first and foremost. It's truly essential. It's my hope people will understand and be supportive of that.

Cathy, Yes, taking care of yourself both physically and emotionally is so very important. Not doing so affects every aspect of our lives!!
Blessings!

Oh, love the ATC's - you do such creative and beautiful work.

If you don't take good care of yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually, who will?!?! Please take care. I'll keep you in my prayers too. Hugs. :)

Hi Cathy! I haven't commented these yet but I have looked them several times. I just love them. I love all you do.

I was going to mail your piece finally today, but realized after I got it all packed up, I don't have your address. I have misplaced the card you sent me (probably stuck it away for safe keeping and now it is too safe cuz I can't find it). Anyway, you can send it to me however you like, flickr, email, etc.

Lastly and most importantly, yes, take care of YOU. You can't make us pretty art or be a good friend, or wife or mom if you aren't up to par! And it's always good to take a break when you're thinking you need one. So enjoy some naps, "fun and exciting" (but good and may you not have to wait too long) doctor's appointments, good healthy eating and walking and bubble baths and cups of tea and all the good things you can think of to pamper yourself!

Thinking of you,
marsha
