a few prints and a few thoughts of other things...



i've updated the shop with a few new prints. i showed the work on my littlebighead about a week ago. i am hoping for my creativity to continue to produce new and whimsical works. i also want to try some new ideas. i want to create stories in my head and have my hands draw to show the words...

in other thoughts, i know that this new year will be different in so many ways and i have no idea how it will affect the things i want to create and do. she turned five this year (three days after the new year in fact) and the possibility of her changing from a three hour preschool to an all day pre-k program seems imminent. when summer comes, she will again have three months off only to return in the fall to kindergarten. will i go back to work? will i find a part-time job that will fit with her dropping off and picking her up times? will i find something i might actually enjoy? it's been a long time since i've worked, am i even qualified for anything anymore besides retail? i don't know. i don't know what the future days will bring. i just don't want to lose all my freedom, and my creativity as well. we will see...

I know exactly what you are talking about. My son will be 4 in a few months and the same thoughts have been on my mind. I worked office jobs before and really don't want to go back to that if I don't have to. I am not minding the idea of retail too much - I work one day a week at a shop I really like so that helps. I guess live in the moment as much as possible for we never know what the future holds.

littlebyrd - once you have been home it is so hard to get back out there. everything changes and nothing is going to have the same comfort of being home, even on a bad day at the house. it's a new era for me i suppose. i know all will be well but it's just the getting back out there..

Ok, here's the lost comment :

I wonder if you'll put some prints of this adorable sleepie hare in your shop because I'm in love :)

And I'd like to add several little things :
1st : Never forget to enjoy the present ! It's here and it's for you, both of you
2d : With this time apart, you'll both grow and you'll both have more things to share at the end of the day. It's gonna make your time together even richer !
3rd : and that time apart also makes the time together even more precious !
4th : and don't worry, because I've never been closer to my mum than since I moved from Provence to Paris (600kms). And (even though I'm 31 !) we still talk everyday on the phone ... Sometimes just for a 5mn chat. But we have to :)

So don't worry. Life won't tear you apart ! It's just the opposite !
Just think of it this way. I assure you it's all true :)

Take K.re, and have a delicious day with your little N !
