The End. The Death of this Blog.

Scratching the Surface . Acrylic . 24 x 24 . 2008

This blog will soon disappear. Say good-bye. "Circle Everything" will be cleared of all previous posts and undergo a re-birth. (as I rebirth myself) I will re-create this blog to be solely an art blog.

Yes, you've heard me ramble about this in the past. As much as I love writing and rambling, I need to stop. Perhaps I will still write a bit, but that too will be about art.

In the beginning, I debated whether I would post only art, or encompass all aspects of my life. As I strive to live holistically, I wanted to include everything (and circle it). My plan was to record my journey as an artist, my spiritual journey. It hasn't been that at all. This blog has been too much about kids, coffee, cookies, and crafts. Not my journey, mostly my distractions.

I appreciate all the visits, and cherish each and every comment. I have no regrets. I loved my blog and loved visiting all my favorites regularly. Blogging is an excellent way to organize your thoughts and focus your ideas. This whole experience helped me realize that as much as I love motherhood, scouting and cookies, I need to spend more time focusing on developing my career as an artist. It feels great to have released all this confusion and doubt as it will feel great to purge it all with one big delete button - like burning your past in a fire!

Special thanks to April and 'becca for introducing me to the world of blogging. Thanks 'becca for introducing me to Illustration Friday and French Toast Girl. Thanks April for always encouraging me and sharing ideas. Special thanks to Mike and Kris for holding my hand and telling me "Look Patti, it's really this easy." Thanks Kris for filling my head with more information that my brain can hold and thanks Mike for being my biggest fan! (When do we start our podcast?) Thank you to anyone that I've run into who has said "I love your blog!" I hope you love the new "Circle Everything," too.

I'll leave this here for a few weeks if you care to click back in retrospect or pay your last respects in the comment box about "Circle Everything" as it was.

Much gratitude to all.
Create peace.

Looks like you've come full circle... an appropriately heavy ending.
Best wishes for the new incarnation!
