"Don't Believe In Miracles, Depend On Them.....Seeing is not always believing. You know much more than you understand. Have the vision to see invisible things."
That was a message from the Daily Guru and was posted on the Artella Group. Just right for starting my day. My family has been going through some turbulent times lately, and I have to remember to keep the faith.
I am looking forward to launching an Etsy shop soon, in hopes that it will bring me a little, much needed part-time income. Maybe that will be my miracle of the year! To be able to continue with my art and work from home. The job market in my small town is scarce and having three children to work around does not make it any easier. Thankfully the little guy went off to preschool without a fuss today. Now if only it could be that easy with the older two!
And yes, apparently miracles do exist, as my computer got all wiggy this morning and then I couldn't get into blogspot. After four trys and ready to give up, I finally got through. So I'm off to a great start in the blogging world! Finally set up an account and then they won't let me in!
And apparently there is a message on the screen that states "Saving and Publishing May Fail". Soooo, after all this...my post may not even go through!
But on a happier note, I have been finishing up some small canvases that I have been working on, though it seems it's haopening at a snails pace. I so admire artists who can just whip things out. Most of the time, I work on a piece, and can only go so far until I have to put it aside and wait for it to speak to me. (Yes, I know how crazy that sounds) And only then am I able to finish it off.
I also have quite a collection of Altered Postcards that I have been working on. I used to work large, but that was not condusive to my scanner. And I never really got the hang of the ATC thing as that was much too small for me. But the postcard size seems just right. (I suddenly feel like Goldilocks in The Three Bears!) In fact, I am having a ball with these Altered Postcards and will soon share them here on BlueJude Musings. Unfortunately my time has run out for now and I must pick up the little guy from preschool. And then there's the housework and laundry and ohhhhh so many more exciting things to be done before I can sit down and play with my art!
Remember.....Believe In Miracles and Keep The Faith!
