That's Me!

Yes, another journal page. This one reads: "Crazy Mixed-Up Wonderful Me" (And yes I know that my wonderful has two L's-it was intentional.) Why I don't know. Perhaps I was feeling FULL of wonderfullness! And I must say, that today I am still feeling crazy and mixed up but not too wonderful at the moment.
But this too shall pass.
Is it my calling to be a successful artist? Or is it just wishful thinking? These are thoughts that have been floating around in my little mixed up head. Anyone else feel this way? And what conclusions have you come to?

Cute piece.
Hang in there.

Of course! I think we all feel that way darlin. The point is if you enjoy creating then do it...just keep it up and it will eventually lead you to where you want to be..I am far from where I need to be..but I know if I give up I am also giving up on myself and people that love me..see ...Gods ultimate goal is for us to be happy...when he sees that we are happy he grants us of what good is to come..Take it all in stride..dont rush it..it will happen....Love this piece! I love art because it gives us a place to just be...express whats inside and who we are.....So be Happy! Create art! and SMILE! Lots of love and hugs!

You ARE wonderfull and full of wonder!

I don't know if I have the makings of a successful artist or not. But I know that I truly enjoy the process, and it adds so much to my life.

So the question is, how do you measure success? Is it a bag full of money? Then it might not be so easy to come by.

But if it is a more fulfilled life, and connections with other wonderFULL artists, and a feeling of joy when you get the piece "just right", and the sense of being true to your nature, your love, your SOUL.... then yes, I think I'm incredibly successful.

And you know what? I think you're successful too!

I've enjoyed looking at your recent journal entries. They are so colorful! The photos of your children are darling. One of my favorite times to look at mine is when they are sleeping....they look like such angels.
