There are so many myths, established by people who shy away from success.That is them, not you. The main roadblocks you may see are not outside of you- they pop up in your mind only.

All the successful crafters and artists had to make at some point the first step to the big unknown, to make the decision and commit to it.• Forced to make a decision.I wouldn’t have know the potential of making living with crafts, if “out of the blue” my husband wouldn’t pass away suddenly in February 2006. At that time I played with photography and silk painting for my own enjoyment and worked few hours in a video store for my own pocket money as my husband provided for my livelihood. Suddenly he was not here to support me, the bills were piling up and I, overqualified 45+ immigrant, was grasping for solution. The part-time job couldn’t support me that was clear, so I put everything on one “card”. I stepped into the adventure of a creative freedom-lover despite the unanswered questions on my mind. You may think I could try for social support, but that is not the way I think. My life taught me that there always is an inspiring solution to get out of a hardship.• What about this “starving artist” myth?Know that you can achieve improvement if you decide it with your heart. People fail only because they stop to try. I would love to encourage you to strive for the life-style you want, for activities that fill you heart with joy and relationships that are uplifting.
