New adventures

I have always said that I was going to try new things and now I am trying something that I did years ago and stopped doing.  Yesterday I picked up some drawing pencils and a couple of sketch books so am going back to try something I loved doing years ago.

I am not a great drawer but I do enjoy losing myself in some of this activity so want to try again.  I know people say you can always just take a picture of what you see but sometimes there are images in your mind that you want to try and capture so that is what I am going to try and do.

No, I will not be posting pictures here for a while of what I am drawing but at least I am moving forward in trying to find who I really am.  I love creating things and hope that even with the sketch book I will be able to sketch out a few ideas even if they end up as cross-stitch designs.

To everyone that has something they want to try, I would say why not give it a try.  You don't have to show the world your results but at least you will know you tried.  I am lucking to have a support system that is always encouraging me to try things and also make sure I have all the supplies that I need to try the new thing.

Here is a quote I saw a couple of days ago and it made me think.  "Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.", George Bernard Shaw.
