Thoughts and Frustrations
As my usual behavior preceding an art show, I'v been a bit stressed this past weekend. I feel good about the amount of new jewelry that I have for the show- just other "things" in life are annoying.
I've had a little down time (off) from my regular job, which pays the bills, so I've been struggling with the thought of not having a steady pay check for the next couple of weeks.
I haven't had great sales in the galleries that I have my work in this month.
On Etsy I feel like a non-exsistant shop. (Don't get me started on that subject!)
So, I'm hoping and praying for good sales at my next show coming up next weekend. But I can't put all my eggs in one basket, so I spent over 4 1/2 hours Sunday applying for jobs on-line. And it's not just sending a letter with a resume. It's filling out forms that have the same employment information that's on my resume, then taking accessment tests, questionares, skill tests, math tests and more!
Now since I've been a "professional applicant" for about the last 3 years, I probably could write a book on this topic! (Maybe I should tuck that thought away for later)
Now I'm doing the laundry and the dryer doesn't seem to be working right. ~Great~
I just don't know how people are existing in today's economy. How are people with kids doing it?
Be grateful for the job you have, if you do have one. I'm worrying how I'm going to take enough cash for change to this next show, although I've noticed lately that folks are not using cash as much.
So, now for you guys who love the eye candy, I've included a few photos of new works that I'll have available for the show this coming weekend.
More details on the show later in the week.
~Keep on, keeping on!~
