It's long time since I updated my old Adrienne's Art Garden blog, but I've decided it's time for a fresh start.
I changed my surname nearly 2 years ago following my divorce and father's death - I kinda wanted to pay tribute to him by going back to the family name. Also, my marrried name offended me to see the old one every time I logged on to my blog.
I changed my computer back in January, and the new one has Windows 8. Amongst many other things that my new computer and I argue about is the blog.
It doesn't like me having a blog linked to a yahoo email address. It wants me to have a blog linked to a gmail address, and after months of arguing, I'm giving in gracefully!
The other change in my life is that after about 18 months of having very little art time because I have been increasingly supporting and caring for my mother (who lived 80 miles away), I am now an orphan. I don't like it, but apparently it's an irreversible state, so I'd better get used to it.
I have more time, but as you can imagine, my muse has been in hiding for a couple of months. I am only just beginning to dabble with art and craft again. Watch this space.
