Simply Neutrals Tuesday 24 - Card "Salvaged Heart"

Hello my friends!
Yes I'm still here and finding my way through the door
to my new studio space! It does feel strange
but slowly it is becoming my new place to create
and feel inspired by all the familiar items that represent
my heart's desire!


 I feel as if I have been on a long journey 

where I had lost my creative heart for a bit


 searching  and salvaging for the bits and pieces 
to put it back together after
 the upheavel of moving and relocating


but slowly the jigsaw is coming together!!!
and it feels so good to be in that zone again! 


so today I'm joining in the Simply Neutrals Tuesday
party at Apple and Apricot Blog with Wen


You can find this available in my on-line
by clicking on the link.

 Thank you everyone for being so patient and coming to
visit me here once again after such a long pause!


I have also completed this new Fabric Journal
which I will share soon and which will also be available
for sale.


Sending you all love and kind thoughts and hoping to
visit you all again soon!

After all the hard work you've done during the move, it must feel great to do something for the soul again. I hope you enjoy your new place and soon won't miss your old home anymore.

  9. Hello dear Suzy
    Hope you love your new home. It's allways hard to leave a place and find one new. Now you've to tame your new place!
    Hugs and kisses

  10. Hello Suzy, I've been thinking of you and wondering how you are settling in. It is such a huge experience of the heart, leaving a place you have loved and poured yourselves into, for a new home. I'm so glad you are finding your mojo again.

    Love and hugs,

  11. Suzy, I am so happy to see your new work. Awesome as always. Peace dear friend

  12. Welcome back dear friend. Looking forward to seeing your new studio space! Lovely new work too. Sweet blessings

  13. I'm hoping not to lose my creative soul ... we have moving in six weeks and I'm already stressing about the new craft area. Yikkes.

    Looks like you adjusted rather well, judging by these beautiful photos.

    Way to go!

  14. Welcome back! So glad you are seeing the light after the move. I don't care what anybody says, moving is traumatic even if it's something you really wanted to do. Much of what was familiar is now either gone or changed and it takes time to create a new normal.

  15. I am so glad you have your groove back haha

    It is so inspirational to see your work again
    The piece I won from you a couple years ago still hangs on my wall in my eating area of my kitchen, where I have other art works on display

  16. I see you are back to your wonderful creating, lovely work. How is the new house? xox

  17. Hello my dear Suzy,
    so glad you are all settled in and back creating again. Both pieces are gorgeous as always.
    I've been thinking of you as I soon have to start packing up my studio as well. Seems we found a new place.Will write soon.
    Have a lovely week.
    Hugs and love,

  18. Suzy,
    Such beautiful pieces! That heart is a perfect artwork,to represent your finding your muse again in your new space! Lovely indeed!
    Looking forward to photos of your new home!
    Hugs,Jackie xo

  20. lovely way to convey the changes of the heart upon a move... I know the turmoil so well, and I am hoping we stay put for a while, no matter how beneficial the move, the transformation is always there... xoxo

  21. Lovely as always! Glad your getting your Creative Wings Again!

  22. You are the sweetest! Suzy! Life gets busy, we move forward, we pace ourselves, and create again. I love these pieces you have posted. Moving to another house we already own is on our horizon, maybe in the next year. We have been in this house for 34 years, our kids grew up here, so there are many memories. And my children grew up being creative from the start. I even taught my boys how to, sew, cook, and clean house, and they can crochet and mend their own socks! Yep! Home is where the heart is!
    love and hugs, and blessings

  24. Looks like we were on the same journey my friend! Besides family events my blog was hostage to adware! So glad to see all your beautiful creations again!

  25. Hi Suzy,

    Your salvaged heart is simply beautiful. And I do look forward to to seeing inside your fabric journal. Your work is stunning, as ever :)
