Staying Positive

Trying to stay positive in a recession, when odds are against you is not an easy thing. My creativity has been dampened, and so I haven't really come up with many new ideas. I made a few stock items in the hopes that something would strike my fancy and I'd be able to take off with it.. and I came up with a pair of earrings that are mostly silver leaves with an emerald teardrop crystal at the bottom. I'm not sure if I like them or not, but I might just let others decide.

Money's getting very tight, and I'm running low on supplies which doesn't help me either.

But, they say it's darkest just before the dawn, and that dark clouds have silver linings.

In the meantime, I'm pondering doing a feature for a favorite Etsy artist or three. I know reading that kind of thing inspires me, so I can only imagine what it would be like to actually write about someone else's work.

I love featuring other artists, it's a lot of fun to learn about other creative minds.
Keep your head up and just advertise in all the right places :)

Keeping one's head up is very hard, I admit, but I'm trying.

I'm still advertising as much as I can, and hoping for that nice break I need!

Thanks, Lilly! :)
