and then... {insert SORRY now}

i came here tonight with the sole purpose of just sharing a layout..and well instead there is probably goin to be some ramblings of my mind.. since it IS my blog i think that i am allowed to..so please just skip to the comments and make sure you leave me one if you dont want to listen to my ramblings.. NOW...

ok... so your still here.. well i've put the house on the market.. yep i'm selling up and movin onto NEW and exciting pastures.. well maybe not superbly lushious and green but pastures non the less... and in my cleaning spree i have been thinking.. thinking about a house i want to rent.. and how the ONE must is that it has a making room or just some where... i have the need to create.. and i'm not just talking about scrapping.. you see i mindlessly spent 2 years doin a visual arts course..yeah sure it was coz i didnt want to study i just wanted to waste my brain.. do something mind numbing where i dont have to think just do... and now that feeling has been starting to come back to me.. you see...during my course on of the things i really really loved was Life drawing..yep.. LIFE drawing.. having a model come in where i can pick apart part of their body .. and feel free to do what i pleased with it.... i love that.. but i can tell you that at the start it really really wasnt like that.. you see i was a very...... well........ umm not sure how to say it but.. probably naive no no no not naive but not ..well travelled.. putting it nicely..as a matter of fact i havent even been anywhere.. {ps this is in code so yeah read into it..}...yep i hadnt even left the block.. i wasnt the person people wanted so i was just me.. and then to be thrown into a world of ART where life in all its forms is embraced even worshipped was a REAL learning curve for me..but in the end was something that i liked the most.. anyho. to cut a long story short i think i might go back in the new year and do a couple life drawing courses.. mmm something to think about .but in the mean time i think i might just have to find me some pencils or even a canvas or two and start to do ..well just stuff..i remember what it felt like to create.. to draw or paint or my favourite to PRINT something that i liked.. what i felt like doing.. i must admit i'm no where near being a good artist or even an mediocure one.. but i dont care. i think i just want to be able to do again.. anyho thats my rant.. over said its out there.. now to see if i actually do anything in the new year.. fingers crossed that this house sells quickly and i can get onto things that i want.. {i'm still deciding exactly what i want ... but you know what i mean}.. anyho....i'll leave with this.. he is currently hangin in my bedroom.. {opposite a female form..but i wont show that one..contains nudity..lol..]

so there you have it.. oh and if you've managed NOT to fall asleep during this rant..please feel free to leave me a comment.. lol.. PLEASE.. okay then.. bye...

Just DO sounds great.
Also sounds cathartic and therapeutic.
DO what's right for YOU.
DO what feels right for YOU.
DO whatever takes you to a happy place, a soft place to land, even if it is for just a few minutes a day.
You nothing holding you back chick.
I agree, just DO.
