I finally decided it was time for me to put my art in the real world. Don't get me wrong. I've been sharing some of my work here & on my other blog http://lillovecreations.blogspot.com
But I actually set up an Etsy shop & Facebook page for my creations. Now I haven't added anything of yet to my Etsy shop. When I do i'll post it here. I'm trying to get the hang of how each site works.
I also need to get some more items together before I can sell anything. I figured if I kept waiting to have the items & then set the sites up, I'll NEVER do it.
I made the commitment to quit just giving my art away. I have to be honest here & I've been yelled at a lot for this. When someone says they like my art & we're face to face, I just give it to them. I've ALWAYS been this way. I have to admit I have a giving heart. This can be a blessing & a curse. One because I can make someone happy with my art (blessing) But then again I'm not providing for my materials & making a living off what I love to do. (curse)
When I talked with a few of my art friends, they all agreed that there's nothing wrong with making a living off of my art. So I listened & I made up my mind I'm going to do it.
My one childhood dream was to have my art mean something when I create it. I wanted to be doing art full-time. Life had other plans & I set my dream aside. Now there isn't anything stopping me from having my dream come true. (except me)
My other dream is to have my Poetry published. I've been working on artwork to go with each poem I've written. My ultimate goal is to have this book provide funds for a Child Abuse Foundation. Having been a survivor of some horriffic abuse, I figured the least I could do was try & provide for the sweet babes out there who have no voice. Again I will keep you posted on that at a later time.
I just wanted you to know I'm working hard on getting my name out there. I've pimped alot of my art friends work to help them succeed in their dream. Now it's time for me to get my dream up & going.
