I would like to encourage everyone to visit around the other participants' blogs and leave encouraging comments and really support one another as we go along on this journey together. I know many of you are doing this already, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You've already been such an encouragement to me. It's so easy to get discouraged from time to time and to feel like we aren't doing a good job. I would like for us to be a community of women who are there for one another, keeping the lines of communication flowing, and lifting one another up, since we will all get down from time to time.
If any of you are feeling discouraged at this time or struggling with being too critical of your work, Shona has done a wonderful post called "A Word to the Discouraged."
Also, so that I have a way to reach everyone if I have an important message to send you, if you haven't already sent me your email address, please do so at sewingwithtrudy at yahoo dot com.
Speaking of being able to reach everyone, I have not been able to reach Dani of A Sprinkle of Fairy Dust. Dani, if you are reading this, I don't have your email address; and I've tried to leave comments on your blog, but the comment box will not open when I click on "comments." So you may wish to look into that. I hope you will also send me an email.
Anyway, thanks again everyone for your participation in The Artistic Mother Art Group. I know we are all going to grow so much and develop the habit of doing a little art each day and figure out how to balance our family and our art, while at the same time, not neglecting our families or other responsibilities.
Most of the photographs on my blog have been wiped out. Somehow they were lost. It would be too time consuming to replace. I have placed a few pictures here just so that it will not be completely blacked out. I now blog over at Sewing With Trudy if you would like to visit and follow me there.
Welcome! I am a God loving, homeschooling mama of six, Mimi of two and sewing enthusiast. This is where I chronicle my creative adventures. I am so glad your creative journey has brought you here. As the daughter of a gifted sewist and crafter, I spent my childhood in a home brimming with paintbrushes and sewing notions. Thank you so much for making Sewing With Trudy a part of your day. Enjoy your visit.
