A Big Giant Change!

Smart women make changes. I consider myself to be pretty smart. So I made a change...

I quit my job!

Yes, that's right... I quit my full time job to follow my heart and my lifelong dreams of making my creativity work for me. I can't think of anything more exciting than waking up every day to create the pieces of art that have been swirling around in my head! And so now I'm going to do it. I promise to keep you up-to-date on my progress. And if I really can pull this off... I promise to share with you how I made it work!

So what do you want from me?

Now that I'll be creating art to make a living, I'll need to know what it is that you lovely viewers want from me. Would you want some of my found object jewelry? How about mixed-media collages? Would you like to see 3-dimensional assemblages? Maybe more dolls... I do love to make dolls! Or maybe you want me to teach? If so... what would you like to learn from me? What do you want to know about my work? My art? A technique? Step-by-step instructions? A method of inspiration? Peruse my blog and check out my website and leave me a comment here.

And thank you all for being here with me. It is greatly appreciated.

  6. I have been following (no comments) your blog for awhile now and I just have to say I think you are VERY brave to quit your job. Especially in this economy. I wish you the best.
    I would like to see mix media collage. I'm in the middle of an art journal and starting several others.

  7. Oh I wish I had your courage! Good luck to you whichever way you choose to play it!!!!!!
