February's Frost is almost gone!

Yikes!  I can't believe that I haven't posted anything since last fall.  I have been posting daily blogs in a marketing business that I was involved in for over a year and this January I had to make the decision to stay or go, because I hadn't made a dime on the endeavor.  It broke my heart because I spent so much time and effort on this thinking it was a brilliant idea and just wasn't able to make it work.  I guess I am still a brick and mortar type of business kind of gal.
The down side to this was it took me away from my love and that is ART.  ALL things ART.  I was frustrated because I wasn't able to create as I wanted because I had to dedicate spare time to building this business.
Now with thousands of dollars in debt and crippled by credit card interests rates, I have had to let it go...

My focus now is to make money doing what I do and that is selling my art, promoting myself that way and see what I can do to get out of this!

I have been teaching a silk painting class once a month, so that helps bring in some cash, however, it's still not "my place"

I have a few shows coming up this fall that requires some inventory, so I'll be busy creating for that as well as maintaining my "nook" at an Art Studio in our cultural downtown area.

I have also began meeting with a group of dynamic women once a month, to enrich our lives by sharing, teaching and learning from one another to become better humans!

I love the energy there and the diversity of the women involved.

Talk again soon!

This is the scarf I made for my sister! It's hand dyed and nuno-felted.  Looks really good on her!
