A Lovely Honor... Featured Artist at New Dimensions

I haven’t journaled in a while and I thought it was time to do so again. And what better reason than because I have had the honor of being a
Featured Artist at New Dimensions

I am so honored to be featured in this newly open group. It has been one of my favorites for a while and that it is now reopened is wonderful!!!

Thank you so much…

Anna, You're the Best!!! THANK YOU!

This past August has been one of the best months I have ever had here at Redbubble and all because my friend Anna Shaw surprised me by selecting me as the Featured Artist in our group Altered by Design.

We share this fun event by alternating months and we generally let each other know who we are considering for the upcoming months. In July Anna said she hadn’t decided yet so we thought we would probably just take a break for August; it was summer & we could hold off until September.

Well this was just a ruse… At the beginning of August I signed in and there was a group message in my AV. When I went to check it out was I ever surprised!!! There was the featured artist for the month of August and it was ME!
Anna completely fooled me, I had no idea she had picked me. I t…

Selfish Longings a poem by RestLeSsD

Oh I loved you so,
And I still do.
I put my dreams away
Just to be with you.

Now don’t take me wrong,
I love my children as well.
But there are times when
Upon my lost dreams I dwell.

I had such great ideas.
Aspirations beyond compare.
Talent that should’ve been nurtured.
An ability that was to be shared.

Instead I fell into love,
I gave my heart and soul.
To be a partner in happiness
Became my lifelong goal.

I learned happiness is just a word,
When other things come first.
When my hopes and expectations
Became a long forgotten thirst.

I’m asking why, why, why?
Why am I not fulfilled?
Am I selfish in my longing
For dreams long ago distilled?

What will I tell my children
When they to must make a choice?
Shall I keep my secrets hidden?
Or let them hear my …
