She follows her heart ...


I wanted to share with you a few things .... despite my house starting to fill with boxes and working all hours of the day preparing for this show... there is still lots going on ..... We did find a new house , yeah , so I will be moving the week i get back from Farm Chicks - WOW , Crazy huh ?! So today I thought I would share a little about me .. Lately I have been reading some great posts and another opening article in WWC from Jo Packman about being an artist and what it takes...and the creative highs and lows .... that really hit home with me ... because she is so right the Highs are usually pretty high and fun but the lows can be really low too (like just wanting to stay on the couch all day and not move ) I have been reflecting alot lately too as I am moving , moving on too new things and being taken in a new direction - I get asked all the time how do you become successful or how do you make your dreams into realities... and I really wish i had an answer like do this , that , and this and there - but unfortunately it doesn't work that way .... so my answer is this "she follows her heart" - I let it lead me forward and guide me and hope that it will guide me in the right direction... and yes sometimes there are pitfalls and heartaches but you keep on trying and pushing and Believing .... You have to work through fear of failure and that people aren't going to like it , ( that is always there for me ) - but somehow you put yourself out there - and hope and pray that people like it - and when they do you are grateful, oh so grateful and blessed for your fans and that people enjoy it and love it - yes she is blessed -

but I wouldn't be where I am without my great support system - my husband is always there (I couldn't do it without him ), my mom is always helping me in anyway she can (always my biggest cheerleader and always in the background ) , my sister n law who is now my Creative Assistant and my awesomely talented cousin, Julie Haymaker Thompson is always pushing me creatively !! See this is a love and passion of mine but it takes lots , and lots of hours - time and effort - and its alot of hard work - but the rewards are amazing and the shes I meet are even better - I feel so very grateful for each and everyone of you .... I have been touched by so many people and thank you for that ... I say that if you follow your heart your dreams too can come true... DREAM BIG !! so in honor of being a sponsor over on the incredibly talented Donna Downeys blog - she will be giving away the above necklace - My wish is that you "Live Life Inspired" - the necklace will also be available to purchase in the store , oh and i have added lots of new charms and few more necklaces there too !! So have a happy and safe memorial day weekend !!
until next time
xo,
beth

Beth, never doubt yourself. Not only are you an incredible creative artist, but most important you are such a sweet, kind person. I feel blessed to know you and to have had the experience of being one of your students. Keep up the good work. God has blessed you with a talent that many others can only dream of.
Love, Nancy
