I had the strangest weekend.
I was in 2 art shows with my Tangled Art and not only did I sell absolutely nothing but most people did not even bother to look at my table.
Considering that my past couple of weeks were tough and I had to make some hard choices, adding a couple of crappy shows to the mix left me wondering why I even bother.
Yeah, yeah… I know. Think positive. 😉
Normally I do but so many “bumps” had knocked me a bit.
So why do I do what I do?
I do both of my ventures (writing this blog and the Tangled Art business) for the exact same reason. I love it. When I am writing in here, I can say what I wish to say, express things that I normally do not have the ability to express, and when all the stars line up perfectly? Get an email or a message saying that I touched someone with what I wrote. Maybe I can even be that one tiny bit of light that someone needs when they are where I was a few short years ago. I recall how dark it was yet that tiny bit of light made all the difference in the world.
My art offers me the same sort of reach in many ways because I like to work off of meaningful quotes and ideals that seem to touch my heart and often the hearts of others.
So I do what I do for love in the end.
Being creative is also an excellent tool to use to improve your mental well-being. Even for those who declare that they can’t do ANYTHING, can often find something that speaks to them and allows the world to quiet down and stop spinning so quickly even for a short time.
So now thanks to a whole weekend of sitting at craft fairs, I am feeling zapped for energy and this blog today will be a tad short. I thought that I would share a few of my favourite new “Tangles” with you as they really mean a lot to me.
If you are interested in purchasing any of these, just let me know.
To see any other work that I’ve done, feel free to look at…
