Our lives have changed. It is difficult to process the new norm. I receive pop up messages from various news sources updating me on the latest numbers. We are currently over 100,000 infected in the US and over 44,000 of them in NY, and over 25,000 in NYC. The numbers are staggering. It wasn't my intention to write any of this when I started to type tonight, but I guess I am leaving it as a remembrance, a stark reminder of what happened in 2020.
I'm now homeschooling my 5 year daughter. As we all are. She's so smart. (I see a lot of myself in her - not the smart, just the curiousity). Loves to learn, yet, her mind wanders. But her rate of absorption is astounding. As I am more visual, she is more auditory. We did packets, IXL diagnostic testing, RAZ kids reading, did some exercises, made a garden with paper flowers, cut out paper snowflakes and so much more. She's really turning into quite the artist. Her dresses in her pictures have beautiful and complex designs on them. I'm thinking of using some of them in my designs! When I do I'll post her drawing them my design that was inspired by it.
Throughout all this hectic craziness, I've managed to continue to make rug designs. I'm also setting up an Etsy store for coloring pages and a Society6 shop for art prints of the rug designs I've made. I'll post those once they are complete.
Enjoy your loved ones. Hug and kiss them everyday.
