My Etsy shop is now up and ready! I was even able to paint a few pieces to put in it yesterday. I've been checking out the forums there and the people on Etsy are so friendly. I feel very inspired and it is so nice to belong to a community of fellow artists and craftspeople. I just feel so fortunate to be able to create things that people like and that make them happy. Each time I get an email or positive feedback from a buyer it makes it all worth it. I have been so inspired and motivated this year. The first thing I think about each morning is, "what am I going to paint today?". And the last thing I think is, "what am I going to paint tomorrow?". It's been so hard to shut my brain off lately that it is becoming a problem. Last night I woke up at 2am and didn't do back to sleep until 5am! With a little one that means there's no sleeping in until 10 either. Thank God for coffee. Well, my husband has a two hour delay (he's a teacher) due to ice so I better get to painting while I have a babysitter!
