I am so thrilled to be a part of a global Heart exchange.Everyone was to make a piece from their heart and pass it on.we each had a swap partner. Mine went all the way to austraila,to Tracy Verdugo.(http://artoftracyverdugo.blogspot.com) This is an artist I adore, I found her online,and am not entirely sure how, but her blog is bright and cheerful and I just love her art. So, this means that she made something for ME!!!!I am anxiously awaiting my parcel!!!:) The piece I made for Tracy was a 4x4, and it will hang from a wire with beads. The message is "let your heart sing"! I feel like my heart is full of music since finding an online art community.LOVE JOY HAPPINESS!

I just have to say I am thrilled to be a part of an online art group. I was welcomed in so easily and I have loved reading and looking at the art! Here is what it says on the "welcome post"
Hi everyone! What a wonderful place this has become.....a place to explore and connect with others around the world who like to play and create. a place to inspire each other through ups and downs. a place to be your authentic creative self. a place of no judgment.Check them out on facebook.

I have been going thru alot of my days as a single mom due to the fact my husband travels for work and he has been on the road 24/6 for the past 5 weeks. I do really great for the first 8 days. He is usually home for a day or 2 but catches up on his own "chores" and there isnt alot of time for us as a family. I have been reaching out trying to "connect" with some mommy-friends, and volunteering with my childs school, and getting ina little ART respite now and then.
I do my best to provide a safe and mostly happy time for my little guy. We have done pumpkin farms, hay rides and petting farms, last weekend was trick or treat, and our village had a spooky walk. We enjoyed it alot. My little one was so brave and hilarious!
Having a child with some developmental delays makes it super hard some days because my head is telling me he is 5 years old when my heart knows he is Not really, so I shouldnt be as upset with some of the behaviors or issues that go on.
This brings me back to my need for community.
I feel better when I dive into some of the BLOGS that I love,(kellierae roberts,) and also on the days that I know I can do some art. In my own little way I have found a community that quite honestly saves my soul.
