Sorry for the Long Absence

I went on hiatus after my craft show in September, needed to refocus on my day job and make up lost hours. I also needed to let my hands recover from the massive amount of work I put into that show. It took a whole week for the swelling to back down to normal not-sausage fingers!

I applied for some more craft shows, but unfortunately have been rejected from all of them, guess I didn’t know who to blow to get in. I’m rather disappointed since my dream is to own my own business but I guess my luck was bound to run out eventually. Hopefully I’ll find some more to attempt to get into.

I’m rather discouraged but I can’t quit. The craft show I did was my dream and I can’t give up on it now, no matter how frustrated and disappointed I feel. I’ve just gotta refocus and regroup and hopefully things will work themselves out.

In the meantime, Christmas is coming which means that there’s lots of gifts to be made, cards to be printed, ornaments to paint, not to mention all my personal projects that have been on the back burner so I guess now it’s “catch up and finish existing projects” time.


P.S. I finally surpassed 200 page views!


About bonefishdesigns

I hold a BFA in printmaking and drawing from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. Drawing and illustration have always been my passion and I make my living teaching people how to draw and paint. Currently, in addition to my work as a lifeguard, swim instructor and an art teacher, I'm also an apprentice to a tattoo artist and have done quite a bit of flash as well. I started this blog more as a way for me to keep track of my thoughts and inspiration, resources and references but I'm more than happy to welcome you to it with open arms.
