Oh My Gosh…

“…the curious jumping around of a creative mind”

Oh my gosh…Once again I have been neglecting my little blog. No excuses, other than the fact that apparently I am consistently inconsistent. Not a quality that I am particularly proud of, but I am hoping goes along with the curious jumping around of a creative mind! That and a supreme lack of creative discipline!

I tend to follow my crazy thoughts and ideas here there and everywhere…picking up something new, following that around, while forgetting (not really forgetting…more like ignoring) those other things that caught my fancy.

And then there’s real life in there too…family & friends, busy days, lazy days & days in between, days spent traveling, days spent celebrating family milestones…

Oh my gosh…days spent Living!

There’s ups & downs…insecurities, doubt and wondering why I am writing a blog at all…Is it my own personal online journal? Well that’s pretty self-involved isn’t it?!

Okaaaaaayyyyyy…Well here’s what I know.

I am not writing to pour my heart out or make a big, beautiful statement about life.

I am not writing to impress anyone.

I am not writing to purge my soul.

I am certainly not looking for fame or fortune (I am sure there are better ways to go about that!).

I am writing just because I want to.

I like to.

I enjoy sharing my little piece of the world, as sporadic as it may be.

It is not my main objective.

It is not my job. It is not my end all, be all.

I do not need it to feel complete.

I just like doing it…

That’s  it… pure & simple.

Take care,

Kathy Ann

Can you believe this sunset?!

If I had painted it, no one would believe that straight line between dark & light really existed. Makes you wonder…perhaps that line in real life is more obvious than some in this world would have us believe…
Beautiful, at any rate.

A little bit about me…

Slide1

I am a crafter, wanna-artist, and amateur photographer that started a “Just for Fun” facebook page this year with portraits and landscapes – which helped me to actually feel like a “real” photographer! I also like to journal, draw, paint, do various crafts & projects and love all things creative. I work as an administrative assistant – which is not so very creative, so I love the time I get to devote to creative endeavours!

My husband is a retired postal worker and a creative woodworker. I started an Etsy shop for his beautiful hand-turned on a lathe candle holders and my various & sundry creations. But mostly we sell at local craft fairs.

I am not young, but I do not yet consider myself old…I have been and continue to be many things in my life:
I have been a bank teller, a postal worker, a stay at home mom (only for about 4 yrs), a drugstore cashier/ad room associate, a department store photographer, an instructional assistant in Kindergarten(that one was for 10 yrs) a floral designer, owned my own dried-floral design business, a manufacturing associate, a receptionist and now an administrative assistant working in recruiting. Whew!

I  have four fabulous children and four incredible grandchildren…

Lovin Life, as Always!
