I hate when I doubt myself and my talent. You know, when you you hit a slump and you start hearing in the back of your head. "who are you kidding, you're not an artist, you just make stuff."
I was bummed because I only sold 3 of those wee art quilty ornaments at the Clay Squared show and my recycled sweater purses are always big comment getters but no one buys them at shows.
But then... I start work on something like this:
In the spirit of waking my muse and shutting down the critic, I updated my Etsy shop with some new buttons and a few of those wee art quilties. If you don't see one listed that you like, take a look at them all here and drop me a note, chances are, it's still available.
So 1 year ago today I started this blog. Why? Why not? It seemed like a good way to spread my Sassy-ness around a bit more and I have met some wonderfully cool folks. I have learned so much (but my typing still sucks) and been super inspired.
So thank you to everyone who stops by to see what I have to say. Feel free to leave a comment, let me know you are really out there and not just figments of my stat counter.
To celebrate I will be loading my Etsy shop with goodies all week. If you mention "Happy Birthday" in the comments section of your order, I will send along a little extra thank you.
More sweater purses and clutches plus some fabric postcards are all on deck.
Before I get back to work I wanted to show you the fabrics I picked up at crafty Planet the other day. Just a wee present for my self. I am so energized by all the cool fabrics available. I get giddy when I think about all the possibilties. I will be working hard this year to move forward and create when ever possible and try to push past the idea of possibilties. I want to make my fabrics and ephemera less precious.
