I honestly can’t say I’m a joyful person. I’m often happy for sure but I’m more shy and quiet with a simmering current of mellow most days. I can definitely be hotheaded or giggle like a giddy schoolgirl though my general mood tends toward navel gazing silence. But every once in a while, I totally break out the jazz heads and spread joy! This usually includes warm summer sun, good food, friendly people and wine (or beer in a past life). I like hosting holidays and family parties, even though it’s really taxing on this introvert. But I like to entertain at home in my comfort zone and be surrounded by people I enjoy and love.
Art makes me feel joyful too. When I get on a roll, I can paint for the rest of my life. Those are the very best days.
I’m happily working on digital journal kits right now. A friend told me I should probably cater more to the art journal crowd and that’s what I’m doing! I’m taking her good advice. I have tons of collage sheets and lots of cool little journal kits on the go. I’ve already finished a super creepy vintage journal kit in time for Halloween and am working on Hot Burlesque and Vintage Recipes. I hope to have all of them in my store next week, after I complete some ‘how to’ PDFs along with the promo graphics. It’s the admin stuff that always takes the longest. I can joyfully work on the art and then sludge and stomp my way through promotion and marketing.
This month, I’m blogging along with Effy. Join us!
Happy weekend everyone!
