Goin with the flow , in life,in art...

Hello friends ! So I have been dealing with my house remodeling and now its back on , " GO " , so Im excited about that , its been at a hault for a while now . In the meantime I have been doing my art , practicing music with my band , yes! for those of you who didn't know , Im also a musician , I sing and play the bass guitar right now , I also play keys and violin , but because band members have left the band I have took on the bass . I love it though , its a beautiful instrument . I also have been doing alot of my art as well , painting , art journaling , my videos ; just always being creative its a beautiful , wonderful thing . What I enjoy about all of this , is that , Im meeting all of you . Your all so amazing and talented , most of all inspiring .
While on this journey and watching all of you , I have noticed that we all get into a funk from time to time , I mean , we are all human , tryin' to make it all work and on top of it all still have time for our , " Creative Selves " , its all really hard to juggle it all . When I read someone's blog describing what their going through and basically saying how its getting hard to hold on , I feel for that individual , because Im right there with them . Life is gonna through ya a bone and then the next minute life is gonna through ya an obstacle . Even though , in that very moment you feel like your in hell , remember that its temporary , remember the moments when everything seems perfect , your gonna be back their again , its just this back in forth thang , of a good day or a bad day , you only hope theirs gonna be more good ones then bad . So .... hang in their , its all gonna be OK , it will be, and always remember get through life , through your ART ! : P

Thanks for listening friends ! luv Maryann

Good things coming ahead !

Hello everyone ! Sorry I haven't been around here in a while , got caught up with stuff around here and I have had some really good things happen in the last two weeks that Im so excited to share with you . The first is I have entered in the , "Sketchbook Project" , you all should swing over there and enter , the deadline is Oct.31st , and it goes to various galleries in the nation , and you can keep track of who views it , you get a title and you basically spend 3 months drawing , painting ,whatever your medium may be and just have fun with the topic you chose . It must be postmarked by Jan.15th . I will be posting a art video on it very soon .
The second exciting happening is I just found out that I will be the Bombshell of the month in October for my favorite stamp company called Bomshell Stamps ! Im very excited to do some fun art,crafty stuff with the Bombshells , so I will keep ya posted on when I start up on the month of October as a guest .
I just want to say to you all , that please... believe that when you do get through all the stuff that is going on in your life , to take time for you through it all . I speak from experience . A year ago I was really so lost in everything that was happening and if it wasn't for my art , I really don't know where my mind would be today . I would hate to think I would still be depressed , possibly on meds who knows how far I would have gone , but I kept telling myself that there was a way and I found art journaling and all of you fine ladies here in the interwebs , I thank all of you for letting me know that I wasn't alone in the things I was going through , that you all had similar situations going on . Take time out for you ! Give yourself , "Me Time".

Thanks for listening and until next time have a wonderful day and make art ! : P
