the last time I posted here was... 2011.
WAY TO GO!
Are there still people following me here? I still get messages and faves... (Yes, I do check them.)
I'd say the main reason for not being active here anymore is plain and easy. I got a full time job. Having to work about 45 hours every week takes a LOT of free time away. Don't believe me? Honestly, I'm not making stuff up.
Because of the work I more or less stopped drawing. Doesn't mean I don't still love it, and also doesn't mean I'll never draw again. I just don't pick up a pencil or plug in my tablet when there is still so much else to do.
I also moved to tumblr and became some kind of lurker for different fandoms. You know, one of these people who just sit and read, only posting now and then and mostly not getting any kind of feedback. It makes you kinda lazy and quite lonely. Only input, never really much interaction.
BUT, I am STILL and always will be creative. Creating and doing things with my hands is so much a part of my life, I couldn't get up in the morning if I couldn't do something creative that day.
I just moved from art to crafty things. Mostly cross stitching... I mean... Only cross stitching...
It's just so easy and soothing to be stitching in my evenings, after work when I wind down from the day. I'd say stitching makes me as happy as drawing always did back then when I was still doing it.
So over the last year or so I did build up a constant and still growing stack of supplies and patterns I now make use of. Within the next few days I'll upload a few of the cross stitches I already made to show them here and make stitching a part of my gallery.
All the drawings and the art that is already in my gallery will stay. Nothing will get deleted.
I just thought, people who still follow me should know that they are more likely to see cross stitches on here instead of art.
Though I'd say cross stitching is art on itself.~
