Always up to SOMETHING!

Funny Paper bead necklace

I'm not sure what it is to always be moving to something. I DO sit still from time to time, I DO paint every day, well, most days...but there is always a new goal out there to find a way to achieve. For me it is the almighty dollar (I need some of it not that I worship it!) , and to have a better sense of doing something...(I'm getting sick of my own company)!

The past year and a half have been a challenge for me. It has been WONDERFUL to have created this blog and my website and to have painted SO much instead of getting up before the sun and going to teach in the public system. But...too much me and not enough teaching something have left me a little blah!! SO...not to sit around and mope (I'm sure my sweet husband has seen some moping)...I decided to try to find an avenue to try to teach. I don't know, with this economy, if it will work, but I have to try...so off to Hobby Lobby to present a few workshops and classes that I would love to do...Of course they are happy to let me in their classroom...and we shall see if anyone else is happy to come and learn some things! This is what I've been up to the past couple of days...Brochure making...material list compiling

...supply checking...etc, etc...

Pearl Dangle for...jeans...bags...??

I think we shall start with a simple Jewelry making class...and perhaps move to some simple batik or paper cast...or....or....or...and...and...and...I got a million (or 10ish) ideas for things that might be fun! We shall see!!

Raggedy Ann Dangle for my blue jean bags...

Wish me luck my blogger friends as I need to replenish a bit of my bank account and my spirit too boot! Of course I'm still gonna paint most days like I have been...but just making some of the above in between...

For those of you who are blessed with enough of the above...and with less of a boredom with your own company...HAPPY PAINTING...the rest of us...HAPPY PAINTING!!

LOL - Oh I know that feeling well. When I had to stop teaching to care for mom, I felt like I was going stir crazy. (still am!) You're so creative...bet there will be plenty of students looking to learn from your talents and have fun.

I love the jeans clips dangly things, Saundra. Alas, I no longer wear my shirts tucked in though. Sigh... I so wish I leaved in your area; I would sure be delighted to participate in your workshops. Of course, that almighty dollar has me running like a chicken with my head cut off to and from Walmart at least 5 days a week. I never have tired of my own company though. The inside of my head is a rather interesting, albeit daunting, place.

It's always great to earn a little bit of that much needed cash doing what you love - creating and teaching! I teach fabric painting twice a week and love it. It really does stop that stir craziness and I also know my Mondays from my Sundays. Have endless fun Saundra!
