My first thought provoking post

Do you ever have those days when you wonder what the hell your doing? I actually have them all the time. Does anyone like my stuff? Am I talented at all? I don't have the money or the time to be creative and try to do a show and sell it...why do it at all. It's like I am making this stuff that will just sit around my house because I do not know how to promote it...yadah, yadah, yadah. But you know, that it not what it is supposed to be about. You make and create because it is who you are. It's like water, you cannot survive unless you are being creative. So screw it. You create art for arts sake, not for commerce. If you happen to sell something, then great, but that it not why you create. My husband has to remind me of this all the time. Yes, I would love to quite my day job and make things full time. But, I am not going to stop doing art even if I do not make a dime at it. I recommend watching the documentary POPaganda: The Art & Crimes of Ron English. It will remind you why we do what we do. Art for arts sake is something we should all try to do a little more often. Yes, the guy does make a lot of money, but he does bring art to the masses for free. I am rambling, sorry, but just thought I would put that out there to my fellow artists and crafters. Until my next rant...CoreyDylan

Check out my new "Shrinky Frame Kits" on my AllSheDoes site! I have brought it up a notch from the beloved Shrinky Dinks you remember as a kiddo. I have three different themes...Goth frames, ornate frames and floral frames. I hope to have many more crafty kits available soon.
