A Storm

This photo totally depicts how I've felt over the last 24 hours. I feel like there's a storm brewing. I feel like everything's getting stirred up, and it's all going to come down soon. Not necessarily bad. I do have some projects in the works. But I feel very anxious, very unsettled.

I felt like this throughout the night and there was little sleep for me. And the strangest dreams. One of those dreams where you wake up thinking "WTF??" but can't remember any details. I hate that!

Today will be (hopefully) about working through this, about plodding through, and getting to the next level. I have been re-evaluating my Etsy shop lately. I've been toying with the idea of doing nothing but photography. I could either clean that one out, or open another dedicated to photography. I'm not sure where to go from here. I do not want to totally move away from journals... or pendants. I'm all mixed up inside.

When all is said and done though, I think photography is totally my calling, if I have one. And on the flipside of that, I've been thinking a lot about teaching bookbinding. When I was in Utah, I taught my neices how to make my small journals. Prior to that, I really did not think I could do that. However, it was one of the most rewarding times in my life. And if I could teach bookbinding to a 2nd grader, a 4th grader, and two 17 year olds, I think I could teach it to most anyone.

We will see where the future takes me. I feel like I'm already buckled in. Now to go!

I am so excited you had the opportunity to tach. Is'nt the greatest??!!! Thanks for the words of encouragement- I need to continue following my gut. You helped !! thx!!

I say open a second shop! It's not that much more work, especially when you can cut and paste, and it'll make you happier and the shops look cleaner (too bad mine don't!)

Sounds like we're playing the same's the "What should I do" game. :)

I wish for a path to reveal its-self to us soon.
