It has been almost 2 years since I have started this blog. 2 years! This really blows my mind because I am not one to stick to one thing for any length of time. I am flighty and easily distracted. Oh look! My favorite! A butterfly! I have to give myself kudos because 2 years at sticking with something is HUGE for me.
So there is something here. There is a reason that I have stuck with Percolating Spark even if I haven’t fully realized the reason yet.
My intention when I first started blogging was to inspire, share and encourage creativity. If I am being completely honest with myself I have been doing more sharing than inspiring or encouraging. This blog has just been Meh.
Truth is, I have just been sharing fluff and not anything personal. I was scared to let the woman behind the curtain be seen. I wanted to be seen as the Great and Powerful Ozzette where everything is perfect and I could control how others saw me. Well, of course, that is boring! People want to see the good, bad & ugly, otherwise, why the hell would reality TV be so popular?
Well, my friends stay tuned for changes. Now don’t panic. I am not going to be giving a blow by blow on my meals and bowel movements for the day…only my closest friends get that privilege. I will, however, give this blog the fun and personality it is so craving.
I have decided to take a break from being on the design team for Hiding In My Craft Room. I will still be making cards just not on a weekly basis. Being on HIMCR design team was a wonderful opportunity for me to challenge myself and was such a fun experience. I loved that a group of us were given an image and theme and we had to come up with a card. It thrilled me to see the different techniques, colors, and creative expressions that the other design team members came up with.
I am enamored with challenging ourselves to see things differently. That is why I want to change my focus to art journaling, repurposed art and writing challenges. I would like to share thoughts about our creative journey and do creative challenges so that we can explore and brew creativity. But most of all have some FUN!
