Becoming a self employed artist - This time ten years ago

So much to tell!  

I've been away from blogging for far too long and missed it so much! But finding the time to write my lovely long posts like I used to is proving difficult with life being so very busy just now, so I am changing the way I post, smaller snippets of news more often me thinks, we shall see how it goes.

I just realised today that this time ten years ago, being a full time artist and working for myself was just a dream! It was such a scary thing to take that first step, but I'm so very glad I did and I've never looked back.

I'm feeling so blessed to be doing a job I love. 
Be brave my lovelies and take that small first step, you just never know where it might lead!


  1. So glad you popped in, I do cyberstalk you on FB but prefer blogging :) Having only been self employed for little over a year (as an artist) I am still walking a very tight tightrope and find it a little (read a lot) daunting - but I will get there - here is to your next ten years C*O*G*R*A*T*U*L*T**O*N*S :)

    1. I agree, I much prefer blogging and really want to get back to it again! Congratulations on making it to ne year, it is a scary path, but such a good feeling too ;) Good luck and here's to many more years for you x

  4. Hello dear Ruthie, I too have been long away from my blog, and only this morning was re-reading some of it and thinking,’I must get back to writing once more,’
    Ten years have passed so’s scary how putting one foot in front of the other each day is suddenly gone.....flash,bang wallop! ;)
