Welcome to My World!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet.  My name is Liisa, and this is my journey…  For the last couple years, I have been suffering from depression.  It’s been a long road, and I have figured out some things that have helped me.  I don’t think I will ever not be dealing with depression, but it will never be at the point where I give up.

It’s me!  Liisa!

 

My current depressive episode has last about six months now. This last December I started drawing with my daughter.  I found that drawing gave me a creative outlet to express myself.  I really enjoyed drawing. I decided that I would start fulfilling a dream and teach myself how to paint.

I started working with watercolors and then acrylics.  I have experimented with pan pastels, and I really enjoy working with ink.  I try different art styles.  I really don’t know my style of art yet, but I do enjoy trying new things and learning.

Every day I drew or painted something, I felt better about myself.  I started taking an interest in life again. I began cooking for my family again and wanting to do things for the family again.

The purpose of this blog is to keep me going on this path.  I will post my art and talk about it.  I am looking forward to coming back in a year and seeing how I have improved.  I will show the crafty things I will be doing around the house and maybe some of the stuff I am cooking.

This will be my online creative journal, and I look forward to you getting to know me.
