As the year comes to an end...

Taking note of the past, so much has happened and not happened this year.

In so many ways things are really starting to happen for me artistically, Etsy has been a wonder for me, as well as doing things outside of Etsy. In many ways it's a dream come true for me....could it really all be part of my life.

On another hand things here at the shop are still so tough and no matter how hard we try we never seem to get ahead, just stay in the same spot.

Keith is doing great at work and I am doing well with can everything still be a struggle???

I just don't know where to go from here, I know I need to make more time for art, and I need to make more time to explore this city for what it has...yet at the same time it is so hard to figure out where to fit it in, I need to be here at the shop for 9 hours a day as it is, and that leaves little time to actually make things, up too late at night and up to early in the morning.

I need to figure out a way to be able to add more hours in the day, or need to sleep less...

hell that might help with me gaining weight, all the wasted time I spend dreaming...

oh speaking of dreams last night I had a horrible nightmare that Keith was out and when he came home he told me that he had kissed someone else...he told me in the dream that it happened because I spent too much time working.

I don't know why I had that dream, but it was such an awful way to wake up...but when I did wake up he was holding onto me so tight it was just beautiful, it turns out he was having a nightmare too, but his was about the "Hell- Well" that was in Amittyville

The piece I am featuring today is another art card titled "I Could Not Be This Person Anymore" and it is available for sale in my Etsy Shop, and it is really indicative of how I was feeling a few years ago when I was moving here.

It doesn't help your sanity, but I can tell you firsthand that sleeping less will make you lose weight. And if you don't believe me, look at that stupid movie with Christian Bale.

Er, but I'm v.v. proud of you and your art, J. I hope you and K (sorry, I just like how J&K rhyme) can find a way to make more money in the new year -- preferably in a way that does not involve his becoming a prostitute.

ok, will try...instead of diet and exercise I will stay up late at night watching DVD's of old After School Specials starring Melissa Sue Anderson that I got for X-Mas.

Oh, by the way, I like that you went directly to him becoming a male prostitute and not me becoming a lady of the evening....

are you trying to say I am an uggo?
