I’m going to get very personal for a moment here – I suffer from anxiety and depression. I go through periods just about every day where I lose motivation, hope, and my normal positive outlook on life and the future. It’s very hard to find the will to function when all you can think is “what’s the point?”. Anyone who has had to deal with anxiety and depression can relate to the feelings that consume your whole body and eat away at your mind. As you can probably imagine, it’s pretty hard to let your creativity flow when you’re in that state.
So let’s jump forward to much more happy and positive things – because dwelling in the negative isn’t helping anyone.
It’s January 9th and the holidays are officially over. It’s been one month since my last project post, and I’m just now finally getting some time to post again. Part of the problem was that I didn’t want to put up any images of gifts until I had given them. The other part of the problem was that I was just extremely busy.
Never fear, lovely readers, for I am back with news from the distant past – aka December 2016. So distant, yet it feels like it was just yesterday. In this blog, I’ll be talking about all of the projects that I took on this season, and how they’ve lead me down new and different artistic paths.
