Scribble Picnic Status

Fiends, having still not been able to visit everyone for these last few themes (and currently sick with a week long flu after traveling), it's clear to me that I'm not being a terribly good host! While it's my joy to build and foster our community here, if it can't be done well, it inevitably leads to let down for the rest of you too and further disengagement which is something I obviously don't want for any of us. As such, it's clearly time for me to put our Scribble Picnics on hold for at least the foreseeable future. I'm afraid our lives have simply been in too much flux since we moved to KY! Many things have not panned out as expected, and some have come with a fair bit of delay, that it would be best to let our art co-op sit, only reconsidering things later after the dust settles and more of my creative focus can be given. Alex and I are well though, in spite of things! We simply just have a lot on our plates currently and need to focus on the tasks at hand.

Thank you for your understanding. I'm sorry for any disappointments here as for most of us, this has definitely become a family of sorts and to me is too valuable to only be able to give it minimal attention currently. Each of you who have participated in some capacity over this last month will be visited and your lovely works commented on as well. I will also be sure let you know if/when things should change here!

Thank you to every one of you for your creativity and excellent inputs for all of us. You mean more to me than you may know. :) TTYL...just not sure when! :)


  1. Thanks for letting us know Michael! I totally understand where you are coming from and wishing both you and Alex the best in your endeavours.

  2. I'm sad, but understand only too well how busy life is just for us oldies, and must certainly be hectic for you bright young things working hard to get your ducks in a row!
    We love you and Alex, still hope to visit your way, perhaps later this year. We must keep in touch.

    Spring will bring brighter days I'm sure. Hope you feel better very soon Michael, and perhaps we can start Scribble Picnic up again another time.

    Sending love, Mary & Bob xx
