So this is my story...

It's been a year now since I've finished my 365 project on Flickr - a photo a day for an entire year!! And yes, I did it!!  I didn't miss a day and I have to say, it was one of the best experiences - the doors of  inspiration opened. I was exposed to many talented photographers all over the world. I already had a passion for  photography but found myself falling deeper in love with creating art from my images.

So here I am a year later, back to work in an office (yawn) and finding little time or energy to shoot. A sad time for me. I had put so much time and energy into my photography the past few years and it's all  come to a halt. so this is my story....

Well... now it's time to make a change!!  2012 a new year and I need to make time in my life for creating. Are you with me???  Last night  I stumble across the e-course being taught by the talented Kim Klassen "Beyond Layers". It's all about  inspiration, encouragement,  motivation, creativity.. .everything I'm looking for!  It's a 52 week course with 2 assignments per week. So I'm jumping in with both feet.  I'm soooooo excited!!

 My artistic journey has not been the success story that I see so many photographers write about. I've struggled to find my place but haven't given up hope yet.  I  dream that someday it will all come together.  Deep within I'm being pulled to create more. I feel the need to expose more of  my creativity. There's lots more just itching to get out!!  I know many of you can relate.  I'm hoping  this course will help me to overcome the things that hold me back from achieving my dreams and finding a clear vision of where I belong.
Join me as I create and explore.  Stop by,  say hi, leave a comment and tell me about your artistic journey.

  1. Oh Kathy...I'm so happy to hear your heart for creativity is still there, because believe me you have plenty of it, I for one should know, if not for you I would not have embarked on my very own Project 365 (2011) and complete it too. So don't let all that creativity go to waste and get to it, show us what you've got, cause I've been waiting one very long year to see it again. Jess x

    1. Thank you! It's funny, I think we all feel like we are the only ones that feel the way we do but thanks to the World Wide Web we are drawn to people far and near that feel the same way we do. Very comforting. Thank you for visiting.
