A Very NOT Brief Late Night Post

What can you do with Photoshop? Well the above picture is one example. I was busy scanning artwork for my website today when I decided to take a break and play around on Photoshop with one of my acrylic paintings. It's fun to come up with weird new artistic ideas :)

I'm also currently working on writing a children's book which I will illustrate myself, that is if the story turns out to be any good. My husband likes it so far, but you know husband's they like everything their wives do, or at least they should if they know what's good for them LOL :)! I've always wanted to write a children's book but just never got around to it so the other day I finally just sat down and wrote the first page. The first page is easy, it's the rest that has me wondering if I'm cut out for this sort of thing. Ah well, we shall see :)

I'm also gearing up to start selling my artwork. I'm going to be selling artist prints, original art and greeting cards. I'm trying to be brave but there's this little voice inside my head that whispers, "be AFRAID be very AFRAID!" I know I should just ignore that darned voice but I'm thinking it's easier said than done. Are all artist's secretly scared people won't like their creations? The scariest part will be going in person to actual shops and trying to convince them to carry my line of cards! I have no clue what I'm going to say. I know, I have such a difficult life! However do I manage!? :)

We're all sick here. First my husband came down with the flu, then my poor baby boy a couple days later and now me. I can handle having the flu, I'm a tough gal. But watching my little bug suffer with a plugged nose and an achey body makes me feel so much worse. He loves sneezing, it makes him smile but he's not too fond of the tissue that usually follows furiously whiping his nose :) .

Anyway I should sign off, it's late and I'm just barely keeping my eyes open. I apologize if I get a little behind in my blog visiting and e-mail answering, things are crazy right now and I'm trying so hard to keep up with my life. Hopefully things will slow down in another hundred years and I can maybe relax a bit :)

I love reading the thoughts that are in your mind Kim. Even though I think I know you so well, for some reason I find the things that you say fresh and surprising, sort of like when you are craving something, you don't quite know what and then you have a taste of lime sherbet and it is just right, sweet and tart all at the same time. What you write is like that and it always gives me that "aha" moment.
