Spring hopped by like a quick splash in a puddle. Weekends muddled together and months that seemed far in the distance approached like afternoon thunderstorms. A dream that I had conjured years ago to start my own paint and sip business became slightly more tangible as I took some first steps. I started a website with my own domain name, created a business bank account and even ran my first "test" event on Mother's Day. Although I have hit a few roadblocks along the way- mainly being out of touch with mainstream social media and the slow progress in finding consistent (and free) event space, I am prepared to take it slow and not overwhelm myself before I begin to turn the ignition. All good things come in good time.
I will continue to occupy my time with creative explorations. I have been walking with my good friend Amber on my off Mondays, I have attended a couple networking events and I have tried a few new local places with my husband. I have an art piece on display at the library in Bristol for the 4th of July Celebration show and I have been experimenting with new art mediums to offer as possible workshops for my business. I will try my best not to go too hard on myself this summer if I feel a creative lull, or if I ever feel as if I am not doing enough. I will allow myself to relax and not feel guilty about it.
