I decided to stop writing my art blog last night.
I thought I had to run two blogs. One that was personal, and one that was art, as I read that some people don't want to read about the artist's life, they only want to see the art, or read about technique or marketing strategies.
At first I thought...ok, I can do this. But then over time I realized that I don't have TIME to keep up 2 blogs, and that I cannot separate my art from my life and visa versa. So readers, Catskillpaper will become defunct as a blog. I figure, if I write a blog that does not talk enough about art, or does not interest you, you can pass it by. And, I think many of my patrons like to know what goes on inside of this zany head of mine!
I have to do that with my websites too. I have three websites, none of which are maintained the way they need to be. I like having the domains, it is cheap enough, but shoot, I have to figure out how to make them work for me!
I spent much of the later part of the day listing on eBay (catskillpaper)and Etsy, in both my Catskillpaper and Pagibbons shops. Paper, ephemera, cards, journals, ornaments. I have a lot to offer.......and I am still trying to make up for the money I usually make in a better economy.
So here are a few samples of things I have to offer.
I have to create a miracle in a week. I invited my work buddies over to the house for a party after work next Friday...and I need to do a lot of cleaning and organizing for it. If I didn't do that, I would never be motivated to do the job!
Off to watch Kinky Boots if I can stay awake for it!
