Well, been busy lately. Looking for work, trying to get in shape, catch up on projects, deal with unemployment(still up in the air), promote work as an artist, and dividing what time I have left for myself, family and friends, it has been super fun and super charged! Now, apparently, came in contact with a bug, seems like I am catching a cold. Oh well, flu season abounds,so time to hydrate and prevent it from taking hold. Making some tea now, and maybe a nap on the way! Want to work on a painting I started a few years ago, of course as usual, it will show up here when I get it done. However be patient, it is a big canvas, it could be a while!

Just a quick update on my friend Kim, she is recovering, however it will be a tough ride. She is paralyzed, and will have to have extensive therapy, and mental and emotional strength (the doctors have basically told her, she will not walk again)! Tough job for her and hard on her mother who must now take care of her and five children, For her it will take all her strength to keep herself focused and prove those doctors wrong

Went out twice yesterday for a hike, took pics as always. Feels so good to be able to take these long walks now, and know it does not cause me any discomfort. I am not working so money is tight, but there is a path down the street from me, so I can do that, just leg work. Fills two purposes for me, maybe three, no cost, fitness and my artistic urges too! So the pics on here to day are from that walk. Hope you enjoy them, it was a wonderful day.

Slowly, projects are getting done, and more seem to open up in front of me. But, it is good it keeps me focused and does not give me time to dwell on any negativity in my life. I am determined to get caught up. I am determined to make a lot of money and create the life I always wanted with ex’s, the difference now, is I won’t have to share it, lol. All for me! A new Year, a New Life and  new Way of living. I am eady for the goodthings I always dreamed of. I am ready to be all I can be and am working very hard on all levels to accomplish it. Fixing my body, my thoughts, my spirit, my finances, my social and family obligations. I do hope all that know me will be patient while I work extra hard and making it all happen. Those who really love me will want me to have all I want, and in return I hope to help them get all they want.

Okay, the last of my updates for today, are lottery, and as of today, The check has not arrived. But it is in the mail I am sure of it. I am very excited and energized, and good thing too. I have a lot to do! Sending you my love as always, to you and all you love as well. Hoping this is a glorious year for you too, diana

Life In The Making!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

 

Well, it has been a little bit. Been so busy, winter will be here soon and I don’t have heat. Forget starving artist, how about freezing artist. Looking all over for a way to get heat, looking for a second job, trying to sell art, looking for an apartment that includes heat (that I can afford), one thing after another. So, at the end of last week, I put my art up in the local library, was hoping to get some sales out of it. However, so far no calls or offers on my work or any calls on commissioned work either, It has been difficult, it seems that things are still moving a head, but at a snail’s pace. It has made it quite difficult some days to stay optimistic, and some days I have failed at that task. So much pressure and so little time, and the constant doors slamming in my face. But, one thing I know for sure, something will happen, all for the good, and each slammed door is getting me closer to the one that will open for me.

Now, as you can well imagine, promoting online has had its hurdles as well, mostly time for it, and really not having my computer up and functioning. This is another thing I am trying to get together again, but having a roof with heat takes priority for now. But, I do miss the sales from online, every dollar helps, and I am missing those dollars for sure! I have been dabbling in some crafts as well, anything I can do to make a buck. The more I do, the more I increase the odds of sales, however, the more I do the less time I have for all the other things I do, like my blog. I really do miss having time to share things with you, and I do love to hear back from you as well. So, just so you know what is all on my plate, I am still working to make the illustrations for my children’s book, I am making rag rugs, rag baskets, wash cloths, painting, drawing, working a full time job, looking for a second income, or a better one so I can survive,looking for a place to live, and trying my best to keep up with all my shops and sites online.

Oh, and I have something to say! Not sure how many of you are familiar with Artfire. I had a shop on there until very recently. It seems they changed their policy, and if you do not pay a monthly fee to have a shop, they deleted you all together, well the shop, and all you can be on for without paying is a buyer.  I thought that was really a bad move. I am not sure, how others did, but I had one sale in the two years I was on there, and that was made by a friend of mine, trying to help me out. I was not going to continue to pay them, when I was not making any money on the site at all. I can only hope, for their sake, that others are not having the same problem as me, It could be hard for them to pay as well. In the end, Artfire may suffer from being hasty and greedy, in an environment where, so many people are like me. Scrambling just to eat and stay warm, doing what they can to make ends meet. Not in a position to throw out money, when there is not enough coming in. Just food for thought.

I am finally playing the lottery again, no big wins, but I am hopeful and more confident than ever, that my day is coming fast. Hoping you are having a happy and safe weekend. Sending my love to you and yours as always, diana
