Well I'm back! And I'm completely unsure If I have any more readers! I am ashamed to say, that laziness, and an unhealthy addiction to facebook is to blame. I have done a couple of shows and this year has not been as good as the last. I understand that the economy is affecting many artists and crafts people, but it is a tough pill to swallow! Selling handmade items and art is a tough business! Every fall I am so stressed about having enough inventory, that it seems I miss out on enjoying my favorite time of year. This Holiday season has flown by, and I still have buying, wrapping, and baking to accomplish! My Etsy shop is empty, and instead of handbags and art, my photo albums are full of ridiculous party pictures. My life is crazy! Crazy fun to be exact! I have always done this...I choose to relax, and enjoy life, rather than work at it! I know living for the moment is great, but I need that motivation and gumption that it takes to succeed! Where the hell is it? These days I spend more time on my hair, than I do art! I know getting a good bouffant is arguably art, but still, I need focus, inspiration, and motivation! I have recently been looking at other artists blogs, and WOW! Their sites are filled with inspiring work, amazing writing, and motivation. Where is mine? Has the blog fairy totally forgotten me? Santa you too? I need some ganas, some energy, and some inspiration! Anyone got any for sale?? Ahh never mind, I'm tapped out from the holidays...maybe the new year will bring me all that I'm lacking, maybe just maybe motivation will come, and I will be open to receiving it! Thanks to all my crazy art friends who keep me going, my crazy kids who keep me cleaning, my crazy husband who is always lending me a creative hand, and to everyone else who inspires me with laughs, complements, and words of encouragement! Blessings to all of you this Christmas....and may everyone have an art filled new year!!
