As some of you may or may not know already, I maintain/write three blogs and a website along with keeping myself busy utilizing other sources of social media and networking like Facebook, Twitter, and my MeetUp group (Let Nature Be Your Muse)--just a few of the sites I touch base with on a daily basis in order to maintain an online presence for the work I love to do.
I soon found myself muddled down in a quagmire, a need for transition. I have been wanting to streamline my efforts for a more focused presence. I wanted to create more time for keeping up with and pursuing important creative goals I've set for myself. In order to do this more productively, it's time I've combined my efforts and said good-bye to certain "hats."
Taking this step has been difficult for me. It was energy and time tempered with fear-based and insecurity-based procrastination. I kept feeling like I wasn't handling things or failing at my work. It was a long nap in limbo and overwhelm. But after ohhhhh, say nearly a YEAR of letting this paralyze me from taking the leap, I'm ready. Let's face it, I get annoyed with inaction and now opportunities are presenting themselves.
Turns out it's not such a huge leap so much as a little hop now.
That's where exciting changes come in to play! Along with a revamped website to highlight my creativity workshops (re-launching in 3 weeks), I will be breathing life into my Mouse House ART blog by integrating all of these wonderful creativity exercises and insights inspired by nature that I share here. I will eventually be phasing out this blog altogether. I find it quite appropriate to combine the two resources because these are ideas and expressions that inspire me and turn up in my own work that I share already--and will continue to do so.
I will continue to keep things personal, definitely continue to share my art, along with creativity exercises to get each of our creative juices flowing. You'll also get a variety of prompts to add to your creative stash plus updates on my upcoming workshops! My goal is to make Mouse House ART a valuable resource to you, and with more interaction through these changes.
So...I hope you will embrace this change with me and enjoy what I share with you, and hopefully we will get to know each other a little better too :) And if you’ve enjoyed the information and exercises I’ve presented on this blog, PLEASE be sure to take a moment and follow Mouse House ART to continue to receive nature-inspired morsels designed to keep your creative energy flowing!
Thank you for your continued support, I hope to hear from you over at Mouse House.
