Four Years Later . . .
After my little successes in getting artwork published, life took a difficult turn and left me no energy or creative joy. I changed careers, and in mid-stream, my son needed three surgeries and endured a 4-month mono-like illness that caused him to have to drop out of high school for a semester. Here in Los Angeles, the writers' strike and then the recession took a hit on my husband's work. Stress, stress, stress... and lots of migraines! But the faithfulness of the Lord saw us through those days.
Trying to revive my creative muse, I forced myself to create one summer and came up with a series using Victorian clip art that I loved, and that again was published in The Stamper's Sampler in a two-page article.
