…There’s good news! We took care of the last few things we needed to do so that we could move forward with some positive work. Yea! I’m working on my Etsy store so I’m not able to do a Fabulous Friday post. I will be sure to post and update when my Etsy store opens and I hope you will stop by and check out my wares. I may also list items the girls have made. I haven’t discussed it with them yet to see if they are interested. I’m also considering selling a few photos through Redbubble. If you haven’t checked out their website, it is /the/ place to find truly unique shirts, totes, stickers, posters…all things art and photo! It’s a great site and you’ll be supporting freelance artists everywhere if you decide to make a purchase. If I can manage to get the Etsy store up and running and maintain my sanity, I’ll start a page at Redbubble soon. If the Etsy store setup is a bit chaotic, then the Redbubble page will happen later. Either way, I’ll be sure to share links to both pages as soon as they are available.
On the music front, I was able to perform one of the songs I wrote at a local Open Mic Night at Cafe Mosaic Coffee House. Nojo, our son, kindly played bass to improve on the total sound. So I’ve been able to progress a little with my music, too. A new song is brewing in my soul and I’m sure it will eventually come together. I hope it does so soon! There were so many talented people at the cafe. It was truly awesome to see my hometown opening up to the creative community.
Well, I guess I /can/ do a Fabulous Friday post after all! I just remembered that one of the ladies at the event is opening two new art galleries in our town. Here are the links to the two pages on facebook. Eunice Community Art House and Niche Artist Gallery and Studio will be opening up soon and will fling the doors open even more to the creative people in our town and community. Both pages are brand new so they need a few ‘likes’ to get them on their feet. I’m so excited to see this happening in our little town! For so long, there were very few avenues for creative development. Please check out the pages and watch for the grand openings. I’m sure they’ll be lots of fun to attend. Also, if you are interested in art or the artistic community, please give the pages your support by clicking ‘like’ on each of them. Thanks in advance for supporting artists in our town!
“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” ~Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
“We should give as we would receive, cheerfully, quickly, and without hesitation; for there is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.” ~Seneca

Whatever you think about this artist, his music is poignant in so many ways. If you don’t like profanity or rap, just skip the song. I don’t support censorship of someone’s artwork. True artists put their all into their work and I believe that’s what Eminem does. This song is one of John and Starshine’s favorites and I enjoy listening to it, as well. I hope you enjoy it!
