I can't believe it's been about 3 years since i last wrote a journal. Time just flies by. I disappeared because I lead a busy college life but also, and more for this reason, because I lost that drive for drawing i had. I'd try to sit down and create something but i couldn't do it, no inspiration. It's made me sad, I want so much to get back into drawing my beloved mermaids and improving my skills. These days i doodle mermaids and birds on my note margins.
However the bright side is I've found a new creative outlet in crochet. It's so satisfying to create beautiful and useful things with yarn and thread. I haven't bought a purse in years, I make mine in just the way i want. Have a bad hair day? I've made an attractive mesh style beanie and with my new passion for making flowers i can accessorize my beanie for every outfit. I've made blankets and scarves as gifts for friends. This hobby is also very portable and I take my crochet bag everywhere I go.
Maybe a colored pencil will find its way back into my hand someday. For now I'll crochet on and sporadically update my gallery with new works of fiber art.
