Those Rare Moments

Dear friends, if you read my last post, you would know that I'm currently taking one step at a time to find my groove back into blogging. Six months is quite a long hiatus and to be honest, I'm feeling a bit rusty. But hey, you must be wondering what I have been up to all this time, right? Well, other than the usual chaos at home, work has been as unpredictable as the weather. Some days I was quite successful, some days I was not. There were times when I got the strength to finish what I started, and there were also plenty of times when I just quit and walked away. But I kept going, because it's the only way I know how to deal with this.

So anyway, here is a peek into some of the good days. Fortunately, I can't show you the bad days because I usually couldn't even be bothered to pick up the camera....









So there you have it. A little account of some rare moments when I truly felt content during the past six months I have been missing.  I really hope things will start to pick up for me from now on and I'm determined to work hard on it. At least the way I know how.

Til next time! :)

Hugs,

  1. Oh my goodness, it is all so beautiful Amalia, I could just look over and over at them. Each picture and creation stirs up my imagination. I would love for my grandkids to get a hold of some of your books. I think you have accomplished far more than you realize. I do remember that when I was young, I longed to get my hands into my art work… but I could never seem to get to it. Now I am 54, and am just getting to it a little more consistently; I do still get distracted by the grandkids, the hubby and cooking… but I am determined to keep working towards it. Love the inspiration; Thanks.

  7. I think as long as you're creating, even if unsuccessfully, that means you haven't fail & besides taking a break now and then is necessary to help us revive and even rest up. you always create such wonderful creations, I don't doubt you will continue to do so, love the gray kitty cat.

    have a lovely day.
