“I don’t know what I did before my blog” I said to Jon as we lay in bed this morning.
I’ve always had so many ideas, so many thoughts rolling around in my head, with no way to express them. And now that I have my art and my writing, I don’t know how I lived all those years without them.
Bottled up creativity can’t be healthy.
Over the past ten years, by doing my work, by answering the creative call inside of me, I’ve built my blog into a place where my creativity resides. I was always drawn to working with my hands, creating tangible, three-dimensional objects. But my blog opened my mind and heart to a differnt kind of creativity.
At first, I used my blog solely to sell my fiber art, but over the years it has evolved as I have. Now my writing, pictures, and videos are as much a part of my art as my potholders, quilts and fiber paintings.
I feel fortunate that I get to work in whichever form of art best expresses what I’m trying to say.
When I first started taking donations for my blog, I immediately felt the freedom to spend more time writing and taking pictures and videos.
And now that there’s an option on my blog to make monthly donations, I actually have some income that I can depend on every month.
It feels really good to be paid for my work.
Building my blog has been a slow and steady process. One I love and am dedicated to. So I truly appreciate all the support, all of you reading this, have given me over the years. I obviously couldn’t have done it without you.
Many of you were there, a few weeks ago, when I was writing about putting a monthly donation option on my blog. You contributed before I even had it all set up and helped me figure out if it was working or not (which is was). So thank you all for that!
Now, the whole process of making a donation to my blog, monthly or one time, is even easier.
Both buttons take you to paypal. And if you don’t have a paypal account, you can still use paypal with a credit card.
If you are making a monthly donation, be sure to check the box for monthly donations on the paypal page.
You can also send donations to me at Full Moon Fiber Art PO Box 205 Cambridge NY 12816.
And once again, thank you to everyone who has already made a donation, one time or monthly.
And thanks to all of you who are about to.
