Ever hit one of these?
Well, really – that’s some brick trim from around our house. But, it’s meant to represent what I’ve been running into for the last couple of weeks. 🙂
It started with some rejection, followed by another blow off, then the flu – which just dragged on, then an enormous amount of catch up. Whew! I really hit it and kind of just hung out there – at my brick wall. It was warm and cozy after a while and even with the headache I found myself just watchin’ the world go by from my little piece of it. And, I’ll admit, there was some whining.
Well! No more. The wall is now in sun all day, and dang hot. Besides, it just all looks the same from there and I’m ready to move on…
The rejection I got at the beginning of the summer, was more like a blow off. Not everyone seems to take art as seriously as some of us. 🙂 So, while I was given the opportunity to hang my work in a number of places all at once – they all fell through at the last minute, then I got the flu and really didn’t care. But, it’s a lot of work to get ready and then just be hangin’ around. I think I will still do something special to show off some of my pieces – plus, I wanna do a give away! It’s time!
I also have a few shows to get ready for that come up later in the summer.
And, my lovely necklaces are really a big hit! I showed one friend and from that 6 of her friends and family are now wearing them! So darn cool! If you haven’t seen them yet, please take a look see at my etsy store – The Red Hen Recyclery and I have a post about them over here.
How’s your summer going! Hope you’re hitting the beach or the hills and not a rough and gritty brick wall!
