The calm before the storm?

things have been strangely quiet lately...there was such a rush for me to get a ton of stuff done for the two shows...and now, nothing.
It has been real quiet on etsy, a lot of people are complaining, and I amtrying not to fret about it. I was hoping to sell a little bit more this week so I could get Keith a little birthday present...but I still have a little time to go, so I am not giving up hope yet!!
I am a bit scared at times though, this is what I am trying to do, this is how I make money...but at the same time I don't want it to be about the money, I want to just create things, and not worry about the rest.
I at least have not gotten to the point that I am only creating things that I "know" will sell, that's just not me, I can't do it.
Keith and I did talk, and if we decide to close the shop when our lease is up (3 years) that he is cool with me not getting a job, that I can be the artist I always hoped I could be.
So that's the plan, I have 3 years to make a go of it...crossing my fingers and taking the swan dive.
But I am still scared. Don't people tell you not to turn something you love into your job...

oh well, maybe I am just feeling anxious because we have the peanut this weekend, and though we love her to is always a stressful time.

This is my latest piece, it is up for sale on etsy, it is titled "A Night Of Theatre and Champagne".

have a good weekend everyone!
