2018 was a rough year. Medical issues persist. Another move which by all accounts should have been good for both myself and my boyfriend. For the most part was until Hurricane Florence took out the restaurant we work at. With his paycheck gone and my side job gone money has been tight and stress high. Though I did get back in my studio more with the revitalized determination to make work to sell. Jr and I have talked it over. 2019 will be our year to make big changes. I guess you can call them resolutions. The restaurant should be back open this month giving him a full paycheck. I am going to start selling my work on-line along with my side job making cakes, and we are going to pay off some debt so by this time next year we can start saving for ..... something. Don't know yet but I'm hopeful. Small goals first.
ive been in a funk for some time now. Inspiration seems to be evading me and every turn. I’ve talked to other artist to see if they have found some way around this kind of block but it’s not seeming to help. I go out for walks, work on other projects, even stayed out of the studio for a few days, and nothing. So tonight I have decided to work on a teaching plan for a workshop. I’ve been procrastinating on this since moving back home but I am determined now. Need to be productive for my sanity.
Got to make work, got to update website, got to post to blog. Lots of things on my list and not enough time in the day. My brain wants to work work work, my body not so much. My energy drains so fast it’s seems I can’t get anything done. I try and tell myself just put one foot in front of the other and everything will work out. Keep moving forward.
Install is complete. Everyone's pieces look amazing and I can't wait for all my family and friends to see what we all have created. It's a wonderful feeling.
