i feel like i owe you an apology (i also feel like i've read this post a million times before on other blogs). i don't usually apologize when it comes to a lack of posting, or a missed subject on the editorial blogging calendar. but all the same - i am sorry about my absence lately.
it's the strangest thing - because i actually have more spare time then i've had in years (it doesn't feel like it but that's what my schedule is telling me). and in fact this summer i worked basically every day - and yet i still found time to post.
but lately it just seems like one thing after another has affected me. i still have the urge to create though. and in fact i find myself taking up new hobbies, trying to learn new skills and rushing home from work to craft. perhaps it makes a good distraction? but regardless my optimism has waned - in fact most of the time i feel downright grumpy (my poor husband!). so i avoided sharing here in this beautiful space to avoid tainting it. but since it seems this situation is going to be more permanent than i had originally hoped - i'm going to make an effort to post here more often - four-five days a week. because i love sharing ideas and art on the isavirtue blog - and god, i love all of you gals so much!
