I am a self taught mixed media artist and instructor living in Virginia with my Husband and our family of fur babies. I love all things vintage and strive to use those discarded bits of artistic flotsam and jetsum in my creations. I also love finding those treasures that others can use to feather their souls and their nests so please check out my Etsy Shop as well. Thank you for stopping by.

Trust me, Lesley, we all grapple with similar issues. Loved ones, family, friends, etc., it all takes alot from both parties to make a relationship work. We are at an age where we tire easily of drama and rigidity. Differences of opinions are a natural part of life, but I only have respect when the differences are respected, not judged.

I have distanced myself from the ones that only want of me. I love to be giving as well, bit some times takers can eat you alive, so i find it important to find a happy medium in regards to that. Sometimes lately, i feel like I don't have much left to give.

This is your blog, so yes, you have the right to say as you please. It is very simple- if they don't like what they are reading, they can quite simply, exit the blog! You aren't a name caller and you aren't a mean person. Discussing your feelings is something you are entitled to do. A personal blog is meant to please you, not anyone else.
