An Auspicious Start?
Like so many crafters online, I, too, aspire to doing what I love as a lucrative living... Long hours, be my own boss, quit the day job... I hear of it happening with more and more frequency. But for every successful artist/crafter out there, there must be hundreds, if not thousands, that barely eke out what my grandmother would call 'pin money'.
I don't pursue a single craft. I experiment and evolve, looking to find a niche where my passion for creating is satisfied, where the money I invest into supplies and time I invest in my creations find an audience. And hopefully, turn a profit!
What's the intent of my blog? Perhaps to keep a running tab on the things I make, and how they're made, perhaps to showcase the art and craft of others I find interesting. Will it be a blog full of personal opinion? Of course. A blog is not necessarily a democracy. This is mine and I can say whatever I like. And you have a right to disagree... and/or add to the conversation. Communication. That's how we all grow, right? I suppose, like so many things in my life, we'll see what happens!
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the things I present here, I hope you visit my Etsy shop at PearlieMae.Etsy.com and find something you love.
February 14th, 2010. Today is the Chinese New Year - Year of the Golden Tiger - it's also Valentine's day, and the day after my 31 month anniversary. I've just celebrated a milestone birthday, and have decided for myself that it's time for a little Me time.
Wanna come along for the ride? Let's rock!!!!
