Disconnected

Hello? Are you there? Nope.... we lost her again....

I admit it, when I get an idea for a project it almost seems like I disappear for awhile. In fact, when I was working on the 52 week project, I don't think anyone except my husband saw me that year. I tend to disconnect and become consumed by my work. It's almost like an addiction. 

Over the summer I've really been trying to force myself to take breaks and enjoy life. After all, all work and no play makes for a boring life, although creating art doesn't feel like work so maybe that's why I can't let it go. If I go too long without creating something I start to get that itch that won't go away, like if I don't create something right now I might go crazy. Well, last week I got that itch. I had just wrapped up a photo shoot for my husband's band and they used this old retro telephone for the video, which is friggin hilarious by the way. Anyway, long story short, I loved the phone and wanted to use it.

I thought about how I've been feeling a little disconnected lately, especially with the summer time blues, and this is what came out of it. I guess you could say it's a bit odd, but I must admit, I really like odd things and it soothes my soul.

Soon I'll be jumping back into my Portraits of Wonderland project again. The perfect costumes elude me at the moment, but maybe I'll have some luck on our road trip we'll be going on in a few weeks. New places, new inspiration! So be on the lookout for new images in September, as well as some exciting news that I've been dying to share, but can't yet. 

Anyways, I just wanted to give a little update and share this new image. No deep thoughts today. But I would like to say a special thank you to everyone who took the time to send me kind words of encouragement after my last post. I was feeling a bit down, but I'm feeling a lot better now. Sometimes, time is all you need to bring yourself back from whatever hell you've created in your mind. So thank you my sweet friends, for taking the time to follow me along in this journey and encouraging me along the way. It means so much more to me than you know and today I don't feel quite as invisible as this image might lead you to believe. Today I feel like I could conquer the world!
