This entire day has been a test. It's crazy where unchecked inspiration can take you. For whatever reason I was in the admin mode today. It's like riding a bike - I just shifted to the "A" side of my brain and I've been peddling through the clerical stuff.
No matter where life takes me, it is important to my well being to have a purpose. I have so enjoyed waking up each morning with thoughts of where my art was going to take me. If this wasn't a calling, I'd be in the throws of burnout preparing for the Believe Boutique and the Briar Patch. Instead anxiety only sets in when I think about life after the the craft fair crunch. What will I do?
Launching this website is the bones of my new adventure. Bloomingayl will be making art, selling finished pieces. Some of this will be online, but I am looking into local venues to carry my pieces. I also plan doing small classes locally, and maintaining a small online store featuring hard to find supplies. Mixed media is in a constant state of flux; , it's transient, inspired, innovative. I'm thinking an affordable option for supplies that would keep up with current trends.
That zig-zag that took over my to do list is just the beginning.
