When I poke around in blogland, I am reminded of how primitive I am when it comes to crafting and my talents...hmmm... in just about every category. Then I think of my son as he struggles to read and when he finally pronounces that word he has been wrestling ( with even though we have read that book or that sentence five hundred times), it's like a small triumph and I am reminded that everyone starts somewhere and if we do nothing at all, we will get exactly what we put into it....nothing. I tell my team at work, every NO leads to a YES...in essence, if you don't ask, you won't get a yes, you might get a NO if you do ask, but eventually you WILL make a sale. I figure with my crafting, like my son's reading, start small and keep plugging away and eventually he'll be on to reading chapter books and I'll be making things someone actually wants to buy or get as a gift..LOL I'll start with the gift giving and see how that goes, then I may go on to selling.
Here's a pic of a homemade apron I bought
at the famous indoor yardsale I mentioned in my previous post....for a dollar...couldn't pass it up :) 3 of my several WIP...one thing that I get out of painting is relaxation. Painting can be so mediatative, whether it turns out perfect or not, there's something soothing about moving your brush back and forth, mixing colors, trying new techniques, and then suddenly before you know it...you've created something out of nothing.
