The following is written by guest blogger Robert H. Wright. Robert is a writer and editor who has worked in the advertising and marketing fields for over a decade. Full disclosure, he is also is my husband. We were recently discussing one of the changes Etsy.com is implementing concerning their makers (of which I am […]
Speaking of Collaboration…
In my last blog post, I discussed the importance of collaboration when building a virtual support network or “squad”. Today, I am pleased to announce I have completed my first collaboration with fluid artist Olga Soby. Check out my article as guest blogger on her site Smart Art Materials here: https://smartartmaterials.com/acrylic-pouring-step-by-step-guide-how-to-get-started/. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Figuring out the Elements of Success, and the Importance of Having a Virtual Squad Now that we are a bit over a month into 2020, how are you doing with your resolutions? Are things rolling along as planned, or are you feeling stuck already? Recently, I saw this commercial on television: It got me thinking […]
Times, They are a Changing!
Happy New Year! As we meander through the month of January, it’s been prime time for some annual reflection and recalibration. Balance and progress. That’s what this post is about today. It’s a long one, but hopefully, you can all sort of relate. I’ve been making decisions about what I’d like to accomplish both creatively […]
Some of What I’ve Been Up to Lately
Painting. Lots and lots of painting! 🙂
Getting Serious About Online Marketing
Lately, I have been trying to figure out how to best increase my online presence, while spending the least amount of money. It’s not that I am being cheap or anything, but I do need to be careful. Since I am not a full-time artist, and this is basically my side-gig right now, the disposable […]
Purpose on Purpose
In my last post, I talked about intention versus attention. So, let’s further the discussion, and talk about purpose. We’ve all thought about it. Usually, as a young teenager or when going off to college, the question is “What’s my purpose in life?”. Or, if you have been reading self-help books for a while, […]
What Are You Paying Attention To?
This morning, I came across this great blog post – https://whenwomeninspire.com/2018/02/21/intention-vs-attention-laurie-buchanan/. I highly recommend reading it! The post is fairly short, to the point, and really gets you thinking. In it, guest writer Laurie Buchanan talks about the difference between intention and attention. This is something I am willing to bet most people don’t think about […]
What’s Going On?
So if you are an American woman in your forties, like I am, you may have seen a recent article called “The New Midlife Crisis” (http://www.oprah.com/sp/new-midlife-crisis.html). Even if you don’t follow Oprah.com, it has been getting shared through Facebook so quickly you can practically see skid marks. The author, Ada Calhoun, asserts that women in […]
Catching Up and Internet Creep
It has been blisteringly hot here in the state of North Carolina for the past few weeks. I love summer, but the heat index has been hovering around 105° F recently. With accompanying humidity, it’s beginning to wear even me down. However, the sun is shining, hummingbirds are coming to my feeders regularly, tomatoes are […]
