God is teaching me a lot about myself. He is molding, pruning, healing, fixing… ME. I say all this because I had a crazy week at work and a very progressive week in my Art.
Work… whatever. If you ever worked in an office I’m sure you already know! But the reason I mention it is because I know that at the end of the day, I can’t let NO one steal my thunder. Work will always be just work. You have to do it! I NEED my paycheck! So, we put up wit it cause we have to survive. I’m willing to continue to do and magnify my best. Bottom line…
sO with all that mess to the side coming home was like heaven! hahahaha And let me tell you I am so proud to say that my earrings were a success! I’m really excited to continue on with that project. Trust me, it was not planned. I have two paintings going, photos to edit, and tutorials that I need to really dig deep in.
The EARRINGS: I purchased a ring years ago that had tiny stone settings. Well, all the stones fell out. I had planned years ago to fill in the gaps with polymer clay. Well as I was messing around with the clay… I got the earring idea. So I have been making my own beads.
Paintings: one is still in progress and the other one is staring at me blankly… (don’t know what I want to do with it.)
What made me really smile today is that I went and bought more supplies. Couldn’t afford to but had the itch. I spent $19.94 on paint, five batches of clay, two canvas’ and one tiny box of sterling earring hooks. (figured i’d buy the expensive box of sterling hooks then the big box which was cheaper and had more hooks so that I could improve quality. at least in the long run.) I saved $9.94. It may sound crazy to be excited over my savings and purchases but I decided that today is the day I save my receipt. And for all those business owners… you know what I mean. It’s going on the wall! I do not have my business license yet but it will all work out in time.
So, this weekend will be very productive. Much to do. A painting to finish, earrings to mold and bake, research and studying, photos to edit and some tutorials to work on.
