Better a Colorful Handmade Saturday (or any day) than a Black Friday!

And since I mentioned colorful, please allow me to share some of my colorful goods from several of my handmade and indie designer sites ~

Today's Picture 16 > Pop Art Roadrunner No. 2

Today's picture is my first offering on stretched canvas!

Inspired by my resident roadrunners and based on one of my photos of the critter, this version shows Roadie the roadrunner in fanciful colors against an aurora-like background that I made by pouring acrylic paint on the canvas. For more details and to purchase this original artwork, see the product page HERE at my Zibbet store. See all of my Fine Art Originals for sale on Zibbet. 

What I do, and why I do it ... part 1

"I make beautiful things that make people happy."

That's the statement that came to mind recently when I was mulling over the perennial where-am-I and where-am-I-going questions that all entrepreneurs grapple with from time to time. I like the statement - call it my new tag line, or elevator pitch, if you will - because it rolls up all of my various enterprises into one. That may not seem obvious, but consider ~

Well, okay, it's obvious (or should be) when applied to my arts and crafts and design side. For example:

AGordon 12 Jersey Scarf custom order 040915
The beautiful colors in these scarves I made last year, for a special customer's request, made a lot of people happy, I've been told :) And that makes me happy when I hear about it!

But ... what about the things I make that aren't things? I'm referring to the metaphysical side of what I do: intuitive readings, Feng Shui consultations, and Jin Shin Jyutsu bodywork sessions. All I can say is ...

Tabletop labyrinth - balance your chakras!
... balanced energy is a beautiful thing! And it makes people happy, too - at least, for those who choose to seek it.

Then there's the wordy side of what I do. I don't talk about it much outside the writer's job sites I'm on, but I do some hack writing now and then:

See, I write for money. That's the long and short and "why" for that part of what I do ;)

Now that I've explained the three branches of what I do, I find I've run out of room for the"why." That part comes in another post or two - except for the writing, you already know that.

Until next time ... Cheers!
