Hello Loves

I just wanted to say thank you to all my readers who commented on my blog (in all of it's various locations). It made me feel really nice that people took a few seconds to say a little something to me, it means a hell of a lot.

my mood is still down today but I am fighting against it 100%, I am in one of those moods where I am obsessing about something, in my head I have turned something simple into a big deal, and now it is all I can think and worry about. I hate it when I get like that, when I was little I would obsess over every little thing...I guess I never grew out of it.

Last night after the solo comic book day, Keith and I went to get a bite to eat, he surprised me with a little present he got for me, which was The Complete Works of Anne Sexton, I was so touched, he was going to save it for Valentine's Day, but when I told him I had a bad day he decided to give it to me, though even he had to giggle at the irony that he gave me a book by one of the "suicide poets" to make me feel better.

I tried to put into words how I was feeling last night to him but it didn't come out right and I think I ended up just seeming a needy basket case who was having an absurd breakdown as the poor guy was trying to go to bed.

This is when I realize that so many of the stereotypes of the needy crazy woman are actually true. I hate myself for

I was finally able to struggle though and finish my piece for the Creative Challenge on Etsy. This week the theme was to create something inspired by our hopes for the year 2007. My hope is to be able to grasp onto the happiness and passion in my life which often seems just out of reach. I am determined to find that again this year, I know it's there, I just have to push things aside and hold onto it.

The piece is called "We Were Two On Fire" and it is available for sale in my Etsy Shop.

till next time

Another stunning work from you Jenn - I love the passion and strength in this. I am still struggling with my creative challenge - gosh I picked a difficult one as my first one, should have just started a couple of weeks ago when it was 'favourite colour'!! Take care and have a great day and weekend.

Jenn, Evil Kate and I have taken to saying "2007 is going to be our year!". I find it quite empowering, and I'd like you to start saying it as well. Seriously, I have a good feeling about his year; not sure why, but I do.

Also, I love your piece, but it's giving me uncomfortable boy feelings. Scandalous! ;)

Hi. First time visitor. Loving your work!! PS: you are not alone. I was up last night at 2a.m. totally overwhelmed and anxious for no apparent reason.I believe that deep emotion like that is what causes a person to need that very important outlet which leads to creating some form of art. So glad you have someone in your life to bound things off of. That is very important. I have one of those too!! Will check out your shop next...Thanks for being so open!!
