just playin with photo shop again :)
I'm officially on vacation for a few days and spent the whole entire day playing with my paint and glue. It felt good to immerse myself in my project with the only thing looming over my head was my lawn that sorely needs mowing and packing that needs to be attended to. I could get used to this.....hmmmm...though I don't know if I could handle the stress of having to make up the salary that I have no with no guarantee of a sale each week let alone each day...lol. It's something that is worth thinking about down the road anyway..when I'm collecting social security ;)
I slept in today which is unusual for me. My body must be telling me that I need to rest but my head is telling me other wise. So many things I want to do. So many things I need to do. Work has been really wearing me thin, worrying about the economy has me stressed, thinking about the rising prices of everything has got me in almost a panic attack--and the thought of us all being held hostage by this economic crisis has got me mad as all get out. I don't want to think about all that but I do, and I'm sure most everyone out there isn't much different.
Working on my artwork helps me escape but I know I can't escape forever so I want to look for ways to save, to cut back, to do things differently and share the ideas here so that it may help others as much as it will help myself. Sarah has started a Frugal Friday post and I definitely want to join in as soon as I find frugal worthy ideas to share. I think a weekly post of how we are saving our pennies is a great idea!
It's apparent that we all need to start taking action before the going gets really rough. There is strength in numbers so please feel free to join in and share your thoughts, your tips and advice on how you are handling these hurricane of changes that are happening within our country and the world
What are you doing differently?
To kick off the belt tightening posts I'll offer a sale in my Etsy shop, so if you must buy and I hope you must..lol....I'm offering a sale to help you out! I mentioned earlier in the post that I spent the whole day working on an art project, I actually finished my submission pieces for this magazine. I can not wait to see the pieces in print!! I'll let them dry over the weekend and then finish my article and hopefully send my babies off by Wednesday. That's my goal anyway. After that, I'm going to get busy and make a TON of new artwork in preparation for Christmas. I'm hoping there are still a few people out there with disposable income and ready and willing to buy original art for the holidays :) If not, at least I'll have something to do as I'm chained to this house because I can't afford to drive the car anywhere..LOL
I hope everyone has a great week and looking forward to any and every tip you have to share about your ways to cut back and save. I'm off to visit some friends for the weekend (frugal, well maybe not, but staying with friends so at least we are saving money there :)
