It's been awhile since my last post on this blog.
To be honest, I don't think about it as often as I used to...
but, given the history of this blog...
I just don't have the 'heart' to let it go.
If you read the blog, from it's humble and hopeful
beginnings, you will see a life 'somewhat intact'.
Then, you can read on and see a family trying hard
to deal with having a new art business online....while
coping with the reality of our own mortality.
I kept fairly good 'notes' during my husband's valiant
battle with cancer...and often referred to this blog
when speaking with his nurses about various
After the loss of my dear husband...it wasn't too many months
before each of the group wandered off to do their own 'thing'.
Presently, I am 'on-break' from my Rustic Goth Etsy Shop. (I hope to be
back by mid-July.)
I have closed my CMZ Art Etsy Shop, but left my CMZ Art Imagekind Shop,
CMZ Art Zibbet Shop ....and a few others open.
And, I write several other blogs....including CMZ Art and Another Painting Blog,
both of these blogs have the most current 'up-dates' of what I am "up-to".
Patrick is only doing his art on a very part-time basis...and very seldom does he
offer anything for sale. He is currently back at University and completely his
education in Theatre.
Jaime and Mike have teamed up in the Best Art Studios 2 on Etsy.
It was easier to work as a group while my husband was sick...as the family spent
so much time together then. These days...it's just easier to work as individuals.
We get together occasionally and do a little brainstorming of art...and marketing...
but, as change has come to our family...so it has come to our art and our business.
