Tonight I have been filling in an application form for something that I would love to be part of, (as well as watching GB win three Olympic Gold Medals. As a runner, Mo Farrah reduced me to tears. Go Mo!) I don't want to jinx it by talking about it yet, but I am sure to keep you posted if it does work out.
Not only that; I have finally written my 'about' page, which is a new feature on Etsy. You can read it here.
I love what I do, genuinely enjoy making things, and love the happiness a commission can impart, but I swing between super confident, and then not at all sure. I think it's the same for a lot of creatives. Open Studio, and a recent big Charity fundraiser have left me bouyant after so many amazing comments, and reflected sales, but then this application makes me wonder if I am aiming too high. All we can do is try, and if my time is not now, perhaps it will be later.
In the meantime, I have some photos I have to put on CD ROM, a domain name to purchase, a website to write, some commissions to finish, an application to post, and not enough time to make all the things that I want to make!
Best be getting on! x
