Wanted

For the next couple of months, Barbara's Gardens, where I have a number of my mosaics on consignment, will be closed to get organized under the new manager. I hadn't had much chance to think about what I would do with my pieces during this time, other than hope they sold on ETSY.

I just got a call from the Heartwood Gallery. They had an artist leave the gallery and needed to fill that space. The owner called to say that the jurors had met and wanted me to be the replacement artist!

I don't have enough work just now to fill both places, but if I shuffle a bit, and get into the groove, I know I can have plenty for both places by spring. I had just been praying this morning about my frustrations with the house and all the stuff I have piled up in here and the claustrophobic feeling it sometimes produces. But with a goal to work toward, I can easily find the motivation to keep materials coming in and product going out.

Candice, thanks so much. I was sitting here praying this morning and that phone call came like a beam of light. I can't believe I get to do what I love to do! CRAZY!

I think that is so awesome and wonderful of God to do that for you.

That's awesome!!! I'm always impressed by people who are self starters. I have lots of great ideas but am far too much of an underachiever to actually do them = )

Maybe you'll become so popular around there you have to get your own studio. That would help with the claustraphobia!
