NewYear

Hi guys and Happy New Year!

I hope you are all having a good start to 2014. I’m excited for this post. For a long time, I’ve been unsure of where this blog needed to go next. So I’ve let her sleep while I’ve spent some ample time with the thoughts “what is really important to me?” and “where do we go when we die?” and “Oh my God I hate my freaking life”. An enormous amount of healing and grieving have been going on under the surface for me since Drew died. And yes, miraculously, still there has been laughing and joy too. With the new year upon us, I’m feeling myself called back here to begin sharing more about my journey as a tiny artist duckling – lol. All the mistakes, all the ideas, all the successes, and the process of what’s working and what’s not for me… and of course, some stories behind some of the art I am making (’cause I am still making a whole lot – and it all has some very deep background to it).

As you probably noticed right away, the blog has gotten quite a facelift! The style is borrowed from my art website sevenshootingstars.com. I’m feeling good about the change – now both sites work in tandem together with a singular look that I feel truly represents me – heart and soul. I was honestly never too crazy about the old look, so this is a well-needed breath of fresh air for me!

Along with the new look, I’ve included an About Me page and a sign up form for my Newsletter where you can receive updates about my artwork, the shows I will be in this year, and tidbits of creative wisdom to help you on your own creative path. The sidebar now has an updated link to my Etsy shop where you can purchase my photography and jewelry (and other art forms later in the year!) – apparently the old link did not even work anymore! Oh well, nobody’s perfect!

I thank you for sticking with me all these years – can you believe that? YEARS… it’s really weird to say that I’ve had this thing going for that long. It warms my heart every time I get a like or comment… especially now that I have been so absent for so long since Drew died. To know that anyone is still out there listening is really pretty cool.

Before I close this out one, I want to give a shout out to those of you who commented on one of my recent posts because I was almost ready to throw in the towel on this blog entirely, and your encouragement and belief in me was what made me decide to hang on to it. Speaking of comments, I would LOVE to hear what you think of the new look – drop me a line below!

Stay creative my friends!

About the photo: A long-exposure shot that I took of Drew’s family and I on NYE running around with sparklers. His dad was the one who ran right up to the camera… making that seriously awesome SWOOSH of sparky light in the top half of the image!

  1. Hi Sarah, I love the new look of your blog and am so happy to see you back here! Can’t wait to hear more about your artistic journey and see what you have been creating. Just want you to know I have been here cheering for you over the last couple years, from many miles away, through all that has happened, keeping up with both of your blogs and feeling inspired by every new step that you take and every soulful reflection that you share with us. Your little felt mushroom in the bottle sits on my desk and cheers me on in my own creative pursuits. Wishing you peace and joyful creativity in 2014.

  5. I love your shop. If I’m ever less poor I really want to buy something! Still sad I missed that little felt fox. :) Glad you’re keeping at it. I’ve been wanting to make you something special to go with your feather totems but I take forever to do this kind of thing – so keep making totem feathers until I get around to it! ;)

    • Haha! Thank you!! Ahhh its good to know you love the felt fox! hmmmm gives me ideas ;) Make away at your leisure my friend… I totally suck at getting things made and sent to people too lol! And no worries, the feathers will be around. Producing them in spurts now cuz it gets a bit tedious, but i’ll keep em going!
