Creatively speaking...

 My happy place, my ickle blog has so badly been neglected. I have has some very caring emails sent to   me and I wish to assure you 'all is well'. Life is just busy and I am forgetting to smell the roses!
 I had hoped to blog about the journey of changing Dotty Red from a life style to a business.  That little business set up has rather taken over my life.
 The paperwork is astounding, lots of brown envelopes through my door. As I struggle to manage the life balance of work and children, keeping those things pure and beautiful to me extra close. Being a single mum I have faced some challenges, sometimes I wish I had that extra support and encouragement that seems to behind so many successfully creative people, but you know, its never going to be perfect but I can do this...The don't call me Dotty for nothing!

 But I am pleased to say the rhythm of my life is starting to find its own beat and I am feeling happy about the changes being made to my little families life.
This space I share with you is special to me. It feels safer, social media I have found, can be sometimes challenging. Maybe I am just the type of gal that would rather pick up the phone for a chat, or pop in to see someone face to face, interacting with another human being is crucial to 'our' well being. Don' get me wrong I have met some wonderful people and very inspiring business's. I have a handful of people I follow how just seem to have it RIGHT, yes inspiring!
But...I miss it here, I miss reading my fav. blogs, I miss the support and warmth here. It doesn't help that I know its my own fault, I am working on my priorities. I thank you again for your support and caring comments, hang in there for me a little longer, I am getting there, I have a lovely Blog award from a special blogger to accept which if it doesn't run out I will blog about it soon. I thank you all, I wish you only the best in life and soon I will be back here weekly...Its in the diary...For now though I leave you with some of the results of that creative time spent away from you!
