2/15/2013: Motivation    Friday, February 15, 2013

What motivates you? If you are a creative person, putting your heart and soul into your art is a catharsis, of sorts. But what keeps you coming back for more? What keeps you sitting at your easel or workbench for 10 hours straight? For me, it's a way of paying it forward. I am closing in on my 60th birthday. I have been around the block a couple of times and have had some wonderful, and not so wonderful, experiences in my 60 short years on this planet. I have always been creative but I have not always been able to spend large chunks of time creating.

2/6/2013: Better Late Than Never!    Wednesday, February 6, 2013

I had a late start today. You ever have one of those days that you REALLY want to get a ton done because your attentions have been spent elsewhere and you REALLY need to catch up? Well, that was today. I woke up early. Really early. Like 4:30am early. TOO early! I was debating what I would work on first today and prematurely delighting in how much I was going to get done. I stretched. I yawned. I looked back at the clock and it was.......9:30am!!! As in...FIVE hourse later! No, no, no! This cannot be possible!

1/27/2013: Success!    Sunday, January 27, 2013

Finally! Finally, finally, finally! I have the shop up, the website looks pretty good for a start, and I have over 40 items listed! My shoulders are aching from sitting in front of this computer for three days straight. The only thing I have to do now is read a little more and figure out how to calculate postage and then I am all set!!!

I know this is short, but I have typed 36 hours in the last three days and I've got to do something different for a little while. Like cooking, cleaning, yadda-yadda. I do believe I can go live in the next day!
