Even Broken Crayons Still Color

"Even broken crayons still color." Author Unknown

My grandmother liked to say that bad things come in threes. Who would know that I would have three years--too many friends dying, two jobs lost by my husband (currently looking), deaths of my mother-in-law and my dad, shingles that seem to never go away...Well, you get the picture. The other day I was truly ready to just throw in the towel. What was the point of making art? Then I got an email from Janet White telling me what my blog meant to her and an email from a gallery asking for my ceramic work. Next, my husband who I never thought cared about my blog told me I needed to start writing again. So here I am. I now have my quilts and my funky ceramic work in a new gallery in Naperville--Artezanato Studio. I am feeling optimistic and have a creative plan in place. Life is good!


  1. Woo hoo! I have missed you. So sorry for your tough year. I hope making art makes it better.

  2. What a pleasant surprise to see you back! I wish good things for you as you continue to enjoy making and seeking out your audience.

  3. Karen, I, too, have missed you! It's so nice to see you back and to know that, in spite of everything, your positive nature is still alive and well! To a better year ahead!

  4. Glad you are feeling better after so many challenges! And glad, too, that you are wanting to write again. I have missed reading your blog.
