Ever heard the word "numpty"?
I have gone "down the rabbit hole" as they say, and found whole bunch of fun and inspiring artists' blogs to follow, and have seen tons of fabulous, inspiring art! I am thinking I may like to join the calendar challenge (on Flickr) I read about on a few blogs. I am feeling so energized by what I've seen! The dilemma for me (and I wrote about it at length in my morning pages) is that I feel pulled in a gazillion different directions at once, getting nothing done, and feel a strong need to focus! I am having such a strong desire to have a crafting buddy. Maybe I should run an ad in the local paper!-lol. I just need to talk to other artists. I feel so isolated, and it's making me very unhappy. Being disabled sucks! Fibromyalgia sucks! I highly recommend avoiding it. (tee hee) Of course, the problem with that advice is: we don't know how one gets it. The artist in me needs support! I need to share and be shared with! My higher power willing, it won't be long now. So, in my blog-hopping, I ran across a fun word on a UK blog: Pinkleart, and that word is "NUMPTY". I've never heard it before, but I have a feeling I will be using it. She used it in the phrase "I am such a numpty!" I think it's like numbskull, or cotton-headed-ninny-muggins. Her art was fabulous, but I did not see a comments button, so I couldn't ask permission to show it here. So, I guess I'll have to show something of mine. With Valentines day coming it is appropriate to show some of the Valentines I've made and have on hand:
