Lets see...last time I was here I was heading off to Paris...
...yes, there I was in all my touristy glory, loving the sights, the sounds, the aromas of Paris!
I'll share more of my adventures in the days ahead...
But for now I will fill you in on a few things going on in my life since last summer...
First things first is that I've been working hard at creating as always and in particular my needle
felting. Which brings me to my next point in that I have also been working
hard designing my own website in order to take things to the 'next level' as they say.
Her's a little taste of some of the sculptures I've already listed...
'Hans'...the back of his head anyway
'Edith' the long legged hen.
So it's one of the challenges I've set myself to.
To get myself out there...work on the 'business' side of art.
Sitting and working on my Mac for long amounts of time
is something I need to discipline myself to do but
to be honest it's been an insightful and rewarding experience.
I have also learned to appreciate those who do website design for a living.
I now know why they get paid 'the big bucks' for such effort and expertise!
And hopefully work on my blog a wee bit more.
Maybe not as much as I used to but try to keep in the loop.
So hello once again...I look forward to visiting you all on your travels as well.
I am an artist trying to make a living doing what I love.Sometimes its photography, sometimes needle felting, sometimes painting. I live on a five acre hobby farm in a rural area 45 minutes from Victoria B.C. I was a letter carrier for Canada Post for 10 years and after too many commutes and a few successful craft fairs, I decided to take the plunge and quit to pursue a life in the "starving artist" category. The holistic success has been tremendous. Living and learning along the way about myself, the world, the business of selling your wares and how it all affects you. Its all good.To have the gift of living where I live, and being able to walk amongst the trees and moss is a joy in my life.
