living the dream

art journal page 3

Today was one of those hectic days from the get go. I was doing my normal routine of reading and responding to emails, tweeting, uploading new pieces on my Etsy shops...and then I went to work on a new post and saw that Amanda from EBSQ had chosen my blog for the
Friday Five since I started my new art journal! Totally made my morning! Thank you so much Amanda and EBSQ!

The other day I was putting up some shelves for more pottery in the studio. While I was looking at all these pieces, I decided right then that I needed a sale of some kind. I'm running out of room! So I called my mother to see if she knew of any craft shows coming up and she did! I was given a number to call to see if there was any space left. There were 3 spots open and I jumped on one! I'll be in the Holiday Art and Craft Show in Salida November 26th and 27th. If you're in the area, stop by and see me!

I immediately brought out all my pieces and started doing an inventory. Then I started thinking about other things related to my work that I could put in the show. I've thought about making pendant necklaces for awhile and thought this would be the perfect time to try them out. The cool thing is that I have almost a month to make more pottery too! I'm excited and motivated. Love this combination!

I am so so blessed to be living my dream of making art, riding horses and playing with my dogs. What's your dream?

I love your art journal. I am almost living my dream. I am in the right track now. All I need to complete my dream is to have a more steady income...but out there are lots of opportunities...just have to find them and work harder..Harder??? I am working hard now but I think I need to focus and look for the right opportunities! Wish you a great Saturday!

So glad you are asking about dreams - loved what you wrote on my blog about yours. I too am trying to make this art world work, but there are so many directions calling that I often stop in the fork of the road and just stare and don't move. Which direction to go?

Yes - you truly are lucky to be living that dream!!!

Congrats to you Stephanie for realizing you need to do something for your creative biz and than just jumping into action..yayyy:D good luck with the show, is it a big one? I am doing a little craft/art show on Nov 27th called 'City Walks''s uually pretty busy but I promised myself not to get stressed out, just make a great table/booth out of what I have and can reasonably get done.

As for my dream, ha ha....keep on with what I am doing now but with lots of money from the art so I can help more bunnies and definatly loose all the migraine pain! goes beyound that of course but I won't write a book here on your comment section, ha ha.
