First Day on the Job

So I am finally back home from my long trip to Oregon and unfortunately the last few days of my trip I threw my back out (AGAIN!!) and since I have been back home in San Diego I have been nursing myself back to good health. I need to figure out how to better deal with my back problems but I am finally feeling better and today was the first day of my new job (working for myself).  

You will see below that instead of dressing nice, I am wearing my painting overalls, scarf on my head and NO MAKEUP- please note that for the first time in like 15 years my Monday morning did not involve putting makeup on! Instead of sitting in a cubicle I am sitting on the ground sorting through purses....


and in instead of sitting in an office with no windows I am now working on the computer in our patio garden....


and while I am SUPER stressed making purses and getting prepared for Renegade Craft Fair this weekend- I am thrilled with my first day of my new job :)  More to come tomorrow!

Love the purses, and I agree with Lee - try to stay off the floor until you are healed. But...allow yourself to dance around the studio sans makeup & ENJOY!

congratulations on taking your leap of faith - i did the same thing 6 months ago and it has been exciting & totally terrifying at the same time.
do i regret leaving behind the 6-figure income and a job i loathed to be an artist & photographer full time? no.
my house is my studio, my uniform is often my pajamas.
to me this is pure bliss.
enjoy yours!

My girls loved the clutches I bought them at Art Fiber Fest. Keep up the amazing work and have fun every day on the "new" job!

Just to say I really enjoyed your video lesson which I just bought from Quilting Arts - I really enjoy using bits and pieces from around the house and charity shops. Your use of colours and layers is great.
