Why don't I ever update this?

In my younger years, I used to write constantly, and I think it's because I went through so much emotional turmoil all the time (I was the epitome of teenage angst, though you might never know it from looking at me.) I have so many journals kept away in my drawers, and I haven't written in one in over a year. I think part of it is just growing up, and that life has sort of "evened out." I feel the most creative when I am going through something rough, and the urge to write very rarely visits me anymore. I find this to be kind of annoying, because I'd like to write and like to make updates. I just feel like I don't have much interesting to say!

So for now I'll just tell you when I've been doing the last few months.
I've made some new prints of illustrations, and mainly I have been working on the next Bloomington Handmade Market which is coming up on April 3rd. I've also just been juried in to my first out-of-town craft fair, which is Crafty Supermarket in Cincinnati!

I haven't really made a real art piece in forever, and it's really starting to get to me. I've been making things that I know I can sell, which is fine, but I want to make some things that really mean something. I have a show in Lafayette in November that I want to make a bunch of shadow boxes for, which really I should start on now. The fall/winter is going to be so busy!
