‘Cause really, who DOESN’T need a giant painting of a hippo?

I am busy, busy, busy with my toddler classes, design work and painting up a storm for my big dog show. I get my postcards from the printer tomorrow and get to leave them all over town. Yippee!

And I will post shortly to let you all know how life has been. The past few weeks have been no fun at all. Some really hard life things have been going on, and this isn’t the place to go into any of it, but I want to share with you how hard it can be to be supposedly living your dream and the rest of your life feels like it is swirling down a drain. When you work for your self you lose the luxury of taking some sick leave and hiding from the world. Your world might feel like it’s crumbling, but you still have to put on a happy face and keep on top of your business so that when things stop swirling you still have a business to have. And those bills don’t put themselves on hold because you didn’t feel like taking a freelance assignment, or have not been promoting your paintings or art classes. Talk about juggling emotions. Not to mention putting on a brave face for your kids and being a strong mommy when all you really want to do is crawl under the covers and wish that maybe after a nice long nap everything would be happy and shiny again. You moms know what I’m talking about… But shiny, happy days are coming. I feel it.
