I am not quite sure where time seems to go lately. Before I know it a week has passed and I realize I haven't blogged for way too long. Between the shop, etsy, art and about, the downtown revitalization stuff, my garden, and last but definitely not least my family I just can't keep up!! Luckily I have my art to keep me sane!
Having my shop and my very dreamy life people are often telling me how I am living their dream. It always gets me thinking of life and how we all want something we don't have. While I do love my life I also think it would be nice to live in the country and have a studio in an old barn where I could spend my days in a garden alone with my dog at my feet and Molly playing and exploring nature. I could have a little shop that would only be open enough for me to get my much needed dose of adult human interaction. I would drive an old turquoise pickup truck that I would bring my veggies and crafts to farmers markets in. Oh life would be dreamy.
But then I take a look around and realize all of those things I think I want are actually right in front of me just in a different setting. I do have a wonderful garden, my dog at my feet (when the mood strikes her) and Molly playing in the backyard. My shop does not have to be open all the time but I actually enjoy being there and know I would miss it if I didn't have it. While I seem to never be able to pay myself with anything except art supplies... to stick back in the business...I think maybe if I did have a job job and got a paycheck most of my money would go to buy art supplies anyways. I don't have that funky old pickup truck but my rusty old Sable gets me around just fine and I can pack a lot of stuff in it. When I think about it my life is my dream. Each of us are living our dreams it is all in the way you look at it!
Enjoy your dreamy life!
