I’m ready to break out the champagne (or at least the Coke Zero and chocolate) to celebrate the opening of my Etsy shop! The new paintings I’ve mentioned in my last posts are now listed for sale over at Etsy and I’m so excited to finally be a part of this amazing community of DIY crafters and artists.

Before bed last night, John (my better half ) and I were talking about how crazy it seems that I just started this journey a few months ago. I’ve always been creative, sure, but the idea to put my creative self out there on the web, to share with complete strangers, to attempt to (gasp!) SELL my artwork? Those are all rather new concepts for me. But the funny thing about this conversation was that he and I were on exactly the same page.
I feel like this is who I was always supposed to be. I struggle to remember a time when I wasn’t painting, wasn’t labeling myself as an artist and it’s actually HARD even though it was just a few short months ago. It sounds crazy, I realize, but looking back to only a couple of years ago, that person feels like someone else. Not me. No way.
Knowing in my belly that I’m on the right path feels really good. Hearing the person I love echo those sentiments doesn’t hurt either.
