About Me

My photo
I live in Mooringsport La. and work in construction full time and dabble in art when ever I can. I would love to be able to do my art full time--who knows, maybe one day I will. In the past year, I started doing Festivals, trying to sell my Art. It is ALOT of work, but worth it. I have met so many people with the same interests as myself.

The holidays are upon us once again and another year has almost come and gone--where does the time go.  Every year I have these grand goals and for the most part, I do get done what I aim to get done.  Sometimes I think that I set goals that are unattainable but, if your gonna reach for something--might as well reach high, right?  This time of year is always stressful.  Seems like everything piles up.  I have the outside things to do--plant rye for the horses,  bring in all the house plants and get ready for the winter, the shows, and the holidays.  January always slows down and for that I am grateful.    Our next show is the weekend after Thanksgiving and the next two weekends after that.  I know that the shows are great for contacts but getting ready for them is tiring.  To tell you the truth, I just feel kinda burned out this year.  It seems like so much time and effort goes into marketing, that if your not careful, it will suck the enjoyment right out of what you are doing.  I keep telling myself that I do the art because I love to do it, but sometimes it all just feels overwhelming.

I am busy trying to pack up and get ready for the show, and have alot of last minute things to do.

Hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving.
