Artistic Philosophy

Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.

My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

I'm back at last!!!!!

Good morning all
It is so good to be back with you and before I do anything I must say a big, heartfelt THANK YOU to you all for the lovely well wishes, comments of concern, emails and e-cards.  You have held out the hand of friendship and kindness to me on several occasions now and I am truly, truly touched by the deep feelings and generosity of spirit, thank you so very much.

As I explained in my last post, I came down with a chest infection and had antibiotics off the doctor.  Well they helped but did not clear it all away as quickly as I would have liked.
I have to be honest now and explain that I was already extremely low.   Firstly I did too much when I started the decluttering/reorganising.   On top of this my life was changing dramatically and very, very emotionally too.  My 9year relationship came to breaking point and we have now separated.   It has been happening for a while now and I think the strain of it took me to an all time low and therefore, I wasn't strong enough to fight the chest infection as easily as I should have.  I do hope you will understand but I am going to end that there now as it is very personal and still very, very raw.
Again, I want to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to write to me on my blog with such kind words.  I have been able to keep reading them, even when I was unable to get to my pc/laptop, as my daughter set up my new phone to access not only my emails but my blog also.
I am just so sorry for taking this long to get back to you.
Well it's up to bed for a rest now and then I am actually going to go into the craftroom to create something new; probably just a card for today, but who knows.  Also, I have some pictures to take of a selection of stunning gifts I received in the mail today.  They are truly exquisite, so I have to show them all, I hope you can stop by and take a look.
Here's a little sneak of what to expect (taken on my mini camera for now).

 
A little glimpse of some of the exquisite pieces created by the talented Linda Wescott.  Thank you Linda xx


Boy, it's so good to be back.  I'll be along to your blogs properly soon too I promise.
Bye for now.  Biggest ever hugs Linda  XX

  8. I'm sorry that you had such a difficult time. I hope it will now soon be better and your life goes back into calmer waters. We say: When one door closes, another opens. This means that there is always a new chance at life. I wish you much.
    I am waiting just to "my new door" and I wish for both of us
    good luck for it.

  26. Linda I am SO pleased and relieved to see you back. Just like our summer, there WILL be sunshine after the rain, even if it seems to take forever and the rain flooded your home. Hope that the love of your family and friends will help you through this painful time.xx

  27. Hi Linda,
    missed this yesterday as I was looking at your blog to early and didn't revisit as I had a few other commitments. It's wonderful to have you back with the blog. I have missed you sooooooooooo much. You take care of yourself and ease your way back into doings things. We don't want you having a relapse.
    Lots of crafty love Jenny L.

  28. Hi Linda, I also missed this yesterday cos I was poorly. Sorry to hear about your personal difficulties and the fact your illness didn't clear up as quickly as you'd hoped. Each day is a new day, so take each day one at a time, and make sure you rest as much as possible so you can get better. Love and hugs sent..:)..Carole xxx
