Updated: A little about me in 2016...

I never know what to write in these things, so here it goes! My name is Sarah-Jane. Lovely to meet you, dear fellow deviant artist! Thank you for visiting.

Well, many would describe me as a big softie, but those that truly know me well would probably say I am a fiery redhead. They're both true! Make no mistake, I may look young but I have enough wisdom to know better! ;) I have a big heart and I don't like to deal with anyone that lacks kindness or understanding.

Mostly I am honest and goofy. I say silly things sometimes and I tell terrible dad jokes. I'm friendly and love getting to know new people, especially those passionate about helping the community! :aww:

I believe in random acts of kindness. Positivity. I have great compassion for anyone enduring depression or anxiety. I love meeting new people. I think hugs are the greatest thing. I giggle snort a little too much. I will try make you laugh at the most inappropriate times. I will always mean things in good spirit, even if it doesn't come across through online words.

Very much looking forward to meeting you! Drop by and say hi sometime. I would love to return the favour and check out your gallery too!


Still here!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 26, 2016, 12:52 PM

Wow - so where to begin?! 

It has been four months since logging on (or even really sitting at this desk). I could tell you that I've been busy wandering the bushes photographing birds and wildlife but that would be a great big lie. After the last I posted, my health took for a serious turn, which I blame on several unhealthy aspects; drinking caffeine did something truly awful to my heart. I started getting palpitations which felt like nothing short of pure terror, and when it first happened I was sitting here at this computer editing. Maybe that's why I've been unconsciously scared to go anywhere near the office again. I've been in and out of hospitals, had ridiculous amounts of tests with little answers. We had found mould infestation in our bathroom (where it was almost impossible to find), which could very well have depleted my health. I've had shingles, chest infections, weakened lungs, nausea, dizziness, and the small window of hope I have is just to understand what is going on with my body. That's just the synopsis because I'll get too teary thinking about it.

I'm still fighting very hard, and somehow I managed to become a nanny for a beautiful family who are understanding. I still photograph when I can, but I don't have much energy to do it on my own, so Pete and I are focusing on our co owned business Two Little Wrens Photography. Our business is still doing well, even signing with Bendigo Bank and other local businesses which is wonderful. All these little positive things are what helps me get through. When my energy permits it, I will definitely be photographing birds/wildlife again soon - it will always be my first love in photography. Just being able to photograph and share these magical moments with you all has been something incredibly wonderful for me, and I am so sorry I have been absent. I've been waiting on the day I just miraculously wake up feeling what I was in Feb, but it's just not the case yet. I can say that I will be around, and do my best to keep everyone updated.

Missing you all terribly,
Sarah :heart:
