Getting them to the finish line

It's been awhile since I last blogged.  I need to stop whining about Sonic aka Crazy Dog & Time Thief Extraordinaire.  While he steals my time the way other dogs steal sausages (he's polite about sausages but greedy about time) he also inspires.
So I have a bazillion fun sketches I should put to lino but haven't.
In the meantime, I finally unearthed my printmaking studio which was buried beneath a mixed mountain of scrap paper, coloured paper, cat-chewed paper, dust bunnies, missprints, reprints, finished but squashed by cats (again) prints, and started monoprints.
Once I finished my archeaologie, spoke sad goodbyes to the almost rans as I pitched them in the recycling bin, sorted through the good, the bad and the ugly, I got back to work.
I don't know where, or how, to restart my blogging, but I miss longform words; sucked into the facebook vortex, I pretty much lost my ability to form longform writing; turns out I'm not alone, much has been confessed by the facebook veeps, and ex-veeps but I'm not here for that, I'm here to get going and MAKE MORE ART, and share it, and yes, hopefully earn some cat kibble (and sausages) for some of it because surprisingly and maddeningly these things do not drop out of the sky like manna from heaven but instead take time (did you hear that Sonic?, time, I need time).

this one made it to Etsy , there will be more...

Just an 18 year old cat here and he's pretty much all about attention...!
Love the Celtic Knot!
I haven't blogged in a couple months either. After the release of the book, I was burnt! Time to get back to it here too. Looking forward to more thoughtful arty posts from you!

Wow, hi Michelle, it feels like a reunion!
I missed some of your posts. I thought facebook had it covered but those algorhythms hide stuff or I get destracted. The format, facebook vs Blog, makes a difference, a different frame of mind.
I'm so glad we are still in touch.

I don't remember to do anything regularly (yes, even eat), but I love to come here and binge read your lovely words. So glad you're still willing to do this and let us come see. Much love, dear lady!
