New blog for a new phase of life

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.


  1. Hi Adrienne
    Can't follow you here unless you add a join this site as on old blog. I don't do G+ or comment on blogs that use verification. Sorry, verification is a pain. You can turn off the verification and still vet your comments.

    Hope you decide to add the other option & turn off verification. xxx

      I have turned moderation of comments on, and word verification off. I've added a 'join this site' gadget, too! Hope that helps.


  2. Added your new blog to my feedly list. Hope you find lots of inspiration for your art work.


Hi, I'd love it if you left a comment.
