It has been almost 2 weeks since my last post, and honestly... I thought I had lost my creative mojo. I have been uninspired, a little stressed and somewhat mopey. It's been a combination of work, lousy weather, missing my hubby since it's his "busy season" and really just a bit of a general funk.

So, I decided I needed to get off my booty, get inspired and get another creative outlet! Last night, I went on the search for a class to keep me occupied & otherwise inspired, and I ended up enrolling in a beginner course called First-Time Screen-Printing for Paper at the Lill Street Art Center.
I. CANNOT. WAIT.
No, I have never done anything like this before. I consider myself to have a good "eye" for art & design, and I am crafty in my own right, but I hesitate to consider myself a hands-on artist. But that's about to change! I figure I spend so much of my time searching for awesome artwork to adorn our place on Etsy and other sites, that I might as well try my hand at creating my own!
Wish me luck! The class starts Sunday, March 29th, so I hope to come out of the 5 weeks with some inky hands and maybe even a piece that we can frame.
