Well, the title says it all. I know I have been absent from here for almost a year. It has been a very rough year health-wise. I am still not completely well (and may not ever be), although I am cautiously hopeful that this year will be better than last year.
Last year’s challenges stole a lot of my creative energy. I did not post here because I simply could not focus on designing anything after Valeria the Dutch Bunny was released. Thanks to those of you who continued to stick with me.
I am finally getting excited about crafting again. Colorwork has become a new love in my life. And my energy for design is slowly coming back. If I get one toy designed this year, I will call it a win.
So I do have a design in progress. I can’t tell you more right now (that would be telling), but I am optimistic that this design, unlike all the others I tried after Valeria, will actually make it past the planning stage.
This post is merely a plea that you don’t give up on me! I will be back! And, even if I don’t regain my former pace of designing, I hope to pull myself out of the rut I’ve landed myself in for the past year. Franciscangypsy Designs is not dead; it has merely been… resting.
Just a bit of colorwork I’ve been working on (not my design)
