I keep having this dream of, one day, making some money off my love of crafting. If it a pipe dream, maybe. Do I realize that I will probably need to continue being a social worker, yup! Do I realize that the likelihood that it will be a success, may be slim to none, yup. Do I realize with that statement, I am being very negative, yup! Do I realize that there may be some truth in it though, absolutely.
What I keep dreaming about, is owning a studio and gallery where people can create, learn, and exhibit their work. I would love for there to be a cafe with healthy food too. I love to create and I would love to share that passion with others. I would love to offer a place to create for people who can't afford to go to a regular studio as well as for those that can. I would love for it to be a place where anyone can feel like an artist or that they are creative! I would love for them to feel comfortable and mot judged. I would love for children to have a place to come and create. I would love to offer a place for those with mental health issues. I would love to offer a place where people can come and create and leave a legacy for those they leave behind (that's the social worker in me). I actually did a major paper in grad school on scrapbooking and social work. I would love for this to be a way to have my career and my dreams meld together.
From this point on, I will continue to pursue my dreams. I will continue to create and I will continue to try to make some money by creating. I will continue to be positive and not focus on the negative. I will stop feeling like I'm going to feel or be laughed at. I will remain positive!
