I Heart Ebay

This Wacom Bamboo thing is pretty darn nifty- after hooking it up, I have spent the past two days drawing and painting with it. I hate to say this, but I may never pick up a paintbrush again! Well, I take that back. But for now, this is my new toy and I am like a kid at Christmas.

There are so many things to create with it. I already caved and bought a nice Epson printer too. Not that I have all the cash in the world, but we have to spend money to make money, unfortunately. The prints come out so crisp. I am so happy with my Ebay purchases. I think everyone should Ebay- whoever thought of that concept was a genius! Also went out and bought the sleeves for my prints so that they will be ready for the craft fair. Today I plan on taking photos of my prints in some different settings and uploading them to Etsy.

I mean, as much as I have complained about being laid off, I am so grateful that I have been given this chance to reconnect to my artistic side. This has been quite the introspective experience for me.

I have also had some great opportunities to spend more time with my family and friends. For example, I joined my boyfriend, his mom and sister on a visit to York's Wild Kingdom last Tuesday (loved the butterfly exhibit). But believe me, I realize I need a job, first and foremost- there is after all a commonly used expression out there for people just like me- "starving artist".
Right now though, I am trying to see this part of my life as something that needed to happen to jump start me into doing what I enjoy the most. I have to remain optimistic that even in this horrid economy, that the 9-5 job I'm seeking will happen when it is ready to happen. In the meantime, I guess I'll just sit back and enjoy the ride. :-)
