Hello my poor neglected subscribers I’ve yet again abandoned you to go on a creative frenzy.
Sometimes I feel like being an Artist is like a boat on the ocean; sometimes I’m overwhelmed by the waves of creativity and other times I’m drifting on still waters.
The last few months I’ve definitely been tossed about creatively. It seems it’s all I can do to get the ideas out of my head fast enough.
So let me catch you up on a few things. I’ve of course been busy with my hand stamped Jewelry business as well as the whole art studio aspect of life.
I’ve become the secretary for the Society of Fort Saskatchewan Artists so that’s new
and I continue to be a member of CIVA Christians in the Visual Arts and am now listed in their artists guide.
I’ve also had a solo and a group exhibit at the Fort Saskatchewan City Hall Art nook Gallery.
Here’s a pic of my latest pieces on display
If you’d like to see more on the creation of these 2 check out and follow me on Instagram for daily posts at milke.amanda
So those are up on exhibit until the end of the month.
Tomorrow I am attending River fest as celebration of the North Saskatchewan River in Fort Saskatchewan. They invited me to attend the Artisan Fair so I’ve been busy prepping art for that. Including these new pieces.
And trust me that’s not everything! So as you can tell I’ve been insanely busy. If I’m not painting, I’m hand stamping and being a stay at home mom and training a new puppy
So now we have 2 munchkins and 2 poochies and a whole lot of busy daily life.
And starting Monday I’m also back to teaching some public art classes
And in all this crazy creative chaos I’ve been extra busy with my home based business growing over 300% this year and we’re only into September! My customers must think I’m doing an ok job since my business was nominated for the following awards from the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce.
So now I need to go dress shopping so I can attend the Awards Gala in October and see if I bring home a trophy.
So that pretty much sums up why I’ve been so busy and why we haven’t spoken for a while.
I’m hoping to eventually even with classes running and stamping orders to slow down a bit and not be so rushed. But until then, keep me loaded of paint and caffeine 😉
Cheers for now!
