I've tried this before.. time for another go.

Actually, this blog is going to be about something more then just life. Don't worry life there will be room enough for you too. But I think I might try to focus a little more on my artwork and the process of trying to make it marketable. The artwork that I speak of are my little designs that I've been doodling for years and hope that if I'm creative enough can become some passable greeting cards and prints. This has been a dream for a long time and something that my family has been pushing for. But for me to do something I tend to have to make it my own idea before I can get it out there. Therefore we will forget the part about my family wanting me to do this and pretend that I came up with the idea by myself. Good job, Sara!

The reason that it has taken so long to even get to this point of fruition is simply an artists fear of rejection. Also, there are the technicalities of figuring out computers and software and trying to wrap my brain around how to get things printed. So here we are. I have the software I need thanks to my parents and brother for an amazing birthday gift. My days when not in the middle of playing/chasing/reprimanding/cuddling my son are spent trying to figure out my newest toys. I am beginning to build a stash of new art. Using my computer as my sketch pad has cut out the middleman. Making everything in one place and accessible. The ball has begun to roll but wait.. we're at another road block. This time it's the expense of starting up. That will take awhile to remedy, but there is plenty to do in the meantime.

Here's to keeping the dream alive.

(who am I kidding? this blog will be about anything i want it to be at the time that i want it to be about anything.)
