Although my family had a year of positives, it still felt heavy. One thing I liked about 2021 is how consistent I was with my art and DIY’s.
I had a successful exhibit at the Albany Barn’s Femina Fortis Group Exhibition, I hosted a Pandemic Patenting Series with Albany Public Library and two family fun workshops at Fusion anti gala.
I am grateful I was able to share how to be creative to parents who feel like they don’t have the time because in reality, we all do!
I stay creative to keep my mind at ease.
When I am anxious, I create.
When I’m sad, I create.
When I’m excited, I create.
When I’m bored, I create.
I make this time a priority for me to help manage my mental health and I have met some fabulous crafters this year to keep me inspired!
Check out DIY’s made by some of my favorite crafters!
