it's a long road


success is one of those tricky words.......everyone has their own interpretation of it.  what is success to one person might not even be on the barometer for another person.  someone might find giving up chocolate for a week a huge success.......whereas i would find giving up chocolate just for breakfast quite a milestone......

  

 let's face it........whatever you're going for, it's not always easy.  



which is what makes it SO worth it once you've made it down that long road!
keep on keepin' on!!

i could look at your handiwork all day long! did you see in the new Art Journaling magazine, that an entire article is focused on YOUR work?! I forget the artist (and am too lazy to look), but she was so inspired by you and your work that she started creating. Check it out!
