Well, I  did it!  I signed up for the Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells!

I had many many weeks of internal back-and-forth “Should I?” or “Should I not?” action going on, but when I got really honest with myself I felt like it’s the right time to take this leap.  And I believe that if you feel a little scared about something but also a lot excited, then you’re making a good choice that will move you forward and make you come alive.  Both of which I am ready to do.

Why this class you ask?  Well, there are a lot of reasons.  I have finally come around to fully embrace the idea that my art and creative business doesn’t have to be a “side gig” for the rest of my life.  In fact, I would feel so much more fulfilled if I were doing some form of creative business as my main gig.  I would like to find a way for my creative business to help other ‘creatives’ in their journeys as well because I’ve also come to realize that I get the most joy from being able to help others.  As many of you know, I took Kelly Rae Robert’s Flying Lessons e-course a couple years ago – which was amazing and so so so energizing/inspiring.  I got lots of ideas that I had not even considered before for a creative business.  It was a great stepping stone for me.  And then I found out that I was pregnant with our sweet little boy.  So I got side tracked into mama-mode for a couple years.  Now I feel ready to take the next step.  This class seems like a great way for me to get clearer on what the next steps are.

For years, a secret dream of mine has been to illustrate children’s books.  I’ve had this little vision in my head for a long long time (waaay before we even talked about starting a family) of being a mama, working in my studio doing layouts and sketches for different children’s books while my kiddos drew pictures on the ground next to me.  (Yes, now that I am a mom, I realize how different that image might look in reality – ha ha ha), but it’s stayed on my mind for a long time.  This e-course will focus on four markets and one is children’s books.  So I felt like that was the universe’s little extra nudge to make me do it!

Finally, I have been putting a lot of thought into the fact that we raise our kids by example.  I want our little man to live wholeheartedly – to know that anything is possible if you listen to your heart and trust yourself.  I want to show him what it looks like to live doing what you love.  So here’s to a big step towards walking my talk. 🙂
