Well, this month I messed up the schedule and ended up without a story. Since I had a spot to fill I thought I would share a story of someone who has totally inspired me.
There is a lot of talk about "Following Your Passion" but I prefer to call it "Following Your Gut" and that's exactly what Robin Davis, my therapist (lol), guru and bestie is doing.
About a year ago, she announced that she was no longer going to pursue licensing her art (which by the way, she was pretty darn successful with) and was instead, going to get back to making things.
She turned down work that just didn't feel right and concentrated on the things that made her happy. In other words, she followed her gut. I like to imagine her leaping out of bed in the morning and running down the stairs to get to work.
When we chat, she is so happy and excited about what she is working on that it makes me happy. And it's contagious.
Look at these awesome things she is creating!

Watching her follow her path has encouraged me to take a step back and examine the kind of work that makes me happy. I do still love working on licensing projects for clients but I miss making things with my hands.
This past month, with no deadlines looming, I have been experimenting with different media and just making things for the fun of making them and it's been a real treat. The plan is to settle on a technique, stick with it, and see what happens.
Hopefully while on this little creative adventure my gut will speak to me because I will be listening.
Thanks for stopping by!
