Since resigning from my job in early September, my creative juices have exploded! I’ve been doing something art-related pretty much every single day since September 7th, and I’m happier than ever!

Recently, I started art journaling, expanding on what I already do in my written journal, which is mostly written word with a bit of art thrown in. However, after getting inspiration online from people like Vicky Papaioannou, Mike Deakin, Marta Łapkowska, Tim Holtz, and Dyan Reaveley, to name a few, I completed my first page!

Now I’m trying to figure out how I can make a living by creating art! After having lunch with my BFF, Christy, today, I have some new ideas thanks to her. Teaching at Joann’s or Michael’s, working at an art or ceramics studio, or possibly (outside of the art realm) teaching online for a place like SNHU or The University of Phoenix. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them! This doesn’t rule out law school, but it’s something to do in the meantime.

  1. I’ve been watching you and seeing how much joy you have been taking in your creativity since leaving your job! I have been hoping you’d find a way to merge what you love and what is your joy with your income producing work! Mellie does all kinds of things to make money. I haven’t looked at her business page lately, so I can’t recall what the name is, but you could probably find it on her personal FB page, so you can see what she’s been up to.

    How about an Etsy shop where you offer things you’ve created?
