My site is back up again!
Still got some work to do but I'm loving the new site and how well it works.
Lots of new things going on here lately.
The website is rebuilt, reconnected and is up and functional.
I got the part time job I've been looking for. I could say it's a real job and most of my artist friends would give me that look. You know the look, the roll the eyes, how can you be so clueless look, aren't we doing a real job?
Well, yeah, sort of, we work longer hours for less money than most people and we're doing something we're passionate about. I don't choose to make things. I'm compelled to make things.
I think of what I do as helping me, keeping me sane, allowing me to express myself in wonderful ways. And I'm really thrilled when someone loves my jewelry enough to buy it, to adorn their body with something I've created. It's an incredible feeling to know my passion is appreciated.
But...I like to help people too and beyond teaching I don't always get enough of that. My full time job is for me, my part time job is for other people and the bonus is I get paid to do it and it reminds me how hard other people work too and that they may not make things but they have a great desire to make their business better in any way they can.
I love that. I love the striving for excellence and the simple act of helping people.
My little far away family is doing well, though I've not even been away from them for three weeks and already I'm missing them like crazy.
Oh well, can't have everything all at once, can I?
