6 Months Already! Happy Anniversary To Me!

Wow! I cannot believe that 6 months ago I took a leap of faith from the absolute into the unknown when I left my full-time job as Art Director for Ranger Ink and decided to pursue my own personal art career. So, how the heck is it going?

Well... let's see... 462 tweets tweeted, 23 blog posts written, 4 retail stores carrying my art, 2 craft shows done, 1 Etsy Shop open for business, YouTube channel created, Facebook Page up and "liked", blog look revamped, website updated and expanded... I'm probably forgetting something! And that's just the business stuff!

I've gotten a chance to play... a little. But now that I have a good foundation with the business agenda completed and in the works... I am finally free to play a lot. So now comes the fun part. I'm both excited and nervous! Excited to sit down and be free to let my creativity take its own course... and still nervous about how I'm going to make this really pay off. But right now... I cannot wait to "get to work" every day, I am so very happy with myself and my choices,  and I have plenty of creative ideas to fuel the passion...

  1. Congratulations 2 you! Wishing you many more anniversaries 2 come. I've been thinking of 'diving-in' to create my own business of selling my jewelry. Just getting started, & I'm sooo nervous. How did you do it!?!
    Best of Luck

  2. Parudy,

    Thanks! I'm still figuring out "how" to do it... but if you mean how did I get up the gumption to take the leap?

    I believed!


  3. Wow, congratulations! Now that the hard work is out of the way ... well, I picture you on a precipice ... wings unfurled ... ready to fly away. I just know we will see you soar.

    Best of luck!
