Happy Year of the Dragon! 🐲

Happy Year of the Dragon! 🐲

So, this is the design I was working on for the Lunar Zodiac Animals collection this year. But, as you can imagine, it didn't happen. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I still have hopes of eventually finishing it before the end of the year, but for now, it is what it is.

I just wanted to post something today to celebrate the date. I hope you have a great Dragon Year! 🐉

‼️Content Warning‼️

A mix of life updates with some venting next, so things get a little depressive from here!

I've already told you guys before, but it was always like this with my yarn art. I'll have several months of inspiration and productivity and, sometimes, several months of not touching a thing. And last year was an exceptionally productive one for me, so I can't complain.

On the other hand, my path with illustration was rougher since there was always a certain level of pressure I put on myself to make it work and bring some return. I'm honestly not even sure why I feel like this.

But it'll be soon a year since I last drew, and I still don't feel like doing it at all anymore. In fact, the other day, I felt even a little sick just at the thought of trying. Plus, it's been a while since I started gravitating towards my old work field again.

So, I'm not sure what'll be of this year. I could be just seasonally depressed, bounce back as soon as spring comes and find my inspiration and motivation again. Or maybe I'm just changing. 🤷🏻‍♀️

As you can guess, my mental health is not top-notch. And I don't really think I'll ever feel whole, so I'm just trying to work around things the best way I can and do what's feasible to me while somehow still wanting to live the life I have. But I know I'm very fortunate to have a support system that allows me to do that right now, so I definitely want to focus more on my healing this year. 🙂

Anywho, since it's been a while, I just wanted to explain a little better how things are around here and maybe give you guys a hint of what's coming in the future. But the truth is, either I don't know that. 🤷🏻‍♀️

So, for now, thank you for your support in all its forms. 🌷 And I guess I'll see you around if we're still around, hopefully soon enough.
