Why Hello There 2015

Ahhhh...
 
That was a good break, I must say.
Thanks for hanging in there and being patient during that rather lengthy break of mine.
I was in my studio after the Xmas holidays getting a lot of sketching done in the company of way too much chocolate, in front of roaring fires, besides napping bunnies & during indulgent trash t.v.!
I didn't get as much work done as I was hoping for because head pain has been super bad and unfortunately very consistent but I did get some needed studio organizing done
and I did get some much needed rest...I admit it, I napped away like 20 year old cat!!!
I did also got an incredibly awesome (and intimidating) new printer & I can't wait to start using it.
 
This break was needed too because to be honest sometimes a sensitive little artist such as myself
just needs to cocoon herself off all safe and snug like to warm up her soul & spirit before once again
spreading her wings and taking off into the big huge unknown world of 'online'.
 
I am ready to be back at it all now though.
 
I am ready to keep on plugging away...
whether people are looking and liking or not!
Whether those much needed and sought after opportunities come or not!
I feel proud of my work last year, I did ALOT, a whole lot, it was my most prolific year yet
which is something to note because it was without a doubt also my worst head pain year yet.
 
 
I step into this New Year full of possibilities and dream-making
with three things I know to be true acting as my sturdy diving board;
I am completely and utterly lucky in love and will unashamedly fully bask in all that goodness.
I am a bunny-mama and I am going to embrace all that that means, lone black sheep & all!
and I am an artist to the very core of my cells and this year I will continue to grown within that...
I want to unabashedly and happily submerge into it all...
to sink into it all the soul vibrating pleasure that unbridled creativity can bring.
 
I am also buzzing with anticipation over some big studio/art plans and changes that are in the works as I slowly transition from the old 'Bijou's Whimsy' illustration identity that no longer suits me
into the new whimsical handmade indie entity I am now meant to be.
 
So dearest New Year
I am strong, I am unique, I am true...
and I am ready for more of all of your abundant beauties.
 
and I really hope that you continue to join me on this blog as I share a bit of my world, work & joys.
 
XO and see you all next week.
