Yes you read that right! Don't worry I myself nearly choked
on my coffee!! Isn't it wonderful?! I'm so incredibly excited
about it and the best news of all is my kit is here and it is
AWESOME!! This week I will be tucking into it and soon
you'll see the fruits of my labour :)
I am so looking forward to this opportunity and working with
and getting to know some wonderful and superbly talented ladies.
Read all about my appointment HERE and if you have a minute
(or 20) watch this video. I have a very short attention span
but this is riveting...MAKE GOOD ART!!
The 3 things that REALLY struck a chord with me were:-
1. Always believe wholeheartedly in what you are doing -
I've always done that, if I don't like certain products
I don't use them no matter how popular they are.
I need to feel the passion!
2. Don't say yes to everything. Always ask yourself whether
it's taking you closer to the mountain or further from it.
(The mountain being where you want to be).
This is incredibly difficult to do and frightening but I've
done it 6 times this year and it's been worth holding
out for what IS bringing me closer to the mountain!
3. MAKE GOOD ART. I'm also a great believer in dedication
and consistency. Andy Warhol said a similar thing.
"Don't think about making art, just get it done.
Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad,
whether they love it or hate it.
While they are deciding, make even more art."
I also follow Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's blog and she is prolific.
I believe in plenitude. Practice makes perfect and art, like
anything else, is a discipline. If you want to get somewhere
with it, like a professional sports person, it's going to take
time and dedication. Just do it - Make Good Art!!
