Well, everyone, I know that I practically never make an appearance on DA. Most often I come on here to clear away any messages and read what my close friends have been up to on here. But the fact is, most of my friends are as inactive on DA as I am.

I rarely have time to do any of my own art, and I'm sure that no one would be interested in seeing my art lessons for elementary students. And to be perfectly honest, I just don't feel much like drawing these days. I am in varying states of exhaustion and stress, and when I finally do have one spare minute when I'm not cleaning, working, doing laundry, writing lessons, yelling at my pets, or keeping my toddler from pulling (and throwing) hundreds of DVDs off of the self, I find myself mindlessly watching trashy tv like "Teen Mom" or "Futurama" OR just flat out going to bed.

I have been really trying to work my way out of this so called "artistic slump" with little success. I haven't had any motivation to sew, and that has been my one constant creative outlet for the past few years.  Currently I am fighting with a toddler pj pattern I found online that is complete rubbish - which I should have known -I think I have yet to find a "free" pattern that I have not had to tweak or completely redo before it was actually usable. So now I am trying again after I made it bigger in the bum and taller in the waist....perhaps this person has never had an 18 month old and forgot that most of them need bigger space in the "trunk" because most of them are still wearing diapers? Not to mention my poor child, who wears cloth diapers, which as some of you know make said child's butt 3x larger due to the cloth bulk. ANYWHO. Hopefully my tweaking will pay off and I wont waste any more cute fabric on pjs that wouldn't fit an American Girl doll, let alone an actual human being.

Wow. This whole rambling seems to be mostly gibberish and hardly any sense whatsoever. Hopefully you can understand my squabbling!
