I mentioned in the previous post how doing an art journal has made me realize how therapeutic and free art can really be. No deadlines, no intentions of selling it, no pressure. It makes me giddy with creativity and excitement for the future! I have really enjoyed my almost 10 years as a shop owner but it is time for me to really go where my heart is taking me.
I have so many great ideas and with owning this fabulous building the options are endless. I want to paint murals and teach classes, I want to sell my art and jewelry all over the country and maybe write a book???? I am not exactly sure what the future holds but I am more than ready and willing to take it to the next level and I cannot wait to see what that future is! Changes will be slow and well planned but the thought right now is the store will close as a regularly open retail shop after the holidays. I may still have special events once a month or so but the store will really be open a few days a week to host classes taught by not only me but my network of super talented friends. It will be an open studio of sorts with lots and lots of goodies to play with and experiment with. So keep an eye on the blog I will let everyone know what is happening and please don't think of this as an end....it is a very very exciting beginning.
