*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Hi Everyone!
Happy October! 🌻 Hope you're all well!

One of the changes that has happened to me, is that I've got a promotion at work. I honestly don't know if I want it! LOL! But, I have accepted it. I was told, I can change my mind and go back to my other position, if I really don't like it, but I have to give it a chance first! We will see what happens. It's more responsibility and less play time! LOL! Like I said in my last post, I'm going with the flow. I know I have changed so much. When you start to change, things start to change around you. I might not have any nails left after this, LOL, but I'm going for it! I still can't believe, just in this past year, everything that has happened. We have to live for today and make the most of it!  Life is messy, but never stop loving you!!!

This is one of the reasons why I'm having less time in blog land. But, I am truly trying to keep up with all of you! I miss my bloggy friends! I feel bad, when I'm late coming around or if I don't post.
The wonderful CJ put this on her blog,
"No need to apologize, if you show up "late", to read a blog post. Late is a relative term. I'm just thrilled and grateful that you decided to spend your time with me."

I agree totally!! So, I will stop feeling so bad!!!

I put the other painting I was working on, to the side and decided to paint a baby crow! I haven't painted a baby crow in a long time. And, if you are wondering, it's the painting in my banner! LOL! I couldn't wait!

But, I will show you the progress pictures.

The finished piece,
"The Best Way To Fly" (8x8 canvas)

I will leave you with one more thing from CJ's blog.
Big Hugs!

    All the best Jan

  28. Congratulations on the promotion, Stacy! I'm so happy for you. Nearly as happy as that glorious baby crow you've shared with us.

  29. Best wishes on your promotion Stacy...congrats to you!!!
    I just love your painting! It is so precious!
    Your baby crows are the greatest and always have been!!!

    Big Hugs Dear Stacy~

  30. That witchy baby crow is soooooooooooooooo cute! Love it!

    No such thing as late my friend. :) I am just glad that you have time to paint.

  31. I love your new painting! So cute, and I like the colors!

    Yep, I know all about the work issues. I have that new job as Executive Director, and I've been working 10-11 hours a day. It's hard to still visit Blogland regularly. As long as you make an appearance once a month or so, it's okay. That way you can still connect with your friends here. Big hugs!

  32. First off, love your new piece so much! Yay and more yay for your promotion! If they didn't feel you were ready and deserving of your new position, I promise you would never have received this new opportunity, so HUGE kudos and congrats to you! Sending lots of hugs your way. RO

  33. Congratulations on your promotion Stacey! Well deserved! It sounds like it will be a great challenge. We tend to put so much pressure on ourselves with social media. I cut back quite a bit this year and feel less stress for it. Such a cute little witch and the comic is adorable! Humans are way too obsessed with their phones today!

  34. Here's to new adventures! Also, I love the broom!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I'm very grateful! Your words are very special to me! Big Hugs!
