I leaped into 2010 with a broom & dust pan in hand--had to give my studio a good straightening up. Then I joined an art biz class--the Blast Off Class taught by Alyson Stanfield. You might remember that I participated in the class last year, too, but it left me feeling so energized that I jumped at the chance to do it again this year.
One of the class assignments that I love is designed to help you focus on what motivates you as an artist and small business owner. We had to create index cards with affirmations on them and were encouraged to add artwork to our cards. That's where it got fun!
Out came my markers, gelly roll pens, and water-color crayons. For the words on each card--I dug down deep and tried to pinpoint statements that I believe are true, that excite & motivate me, and that make me feel satisfied with where I am and where I'm heading.
I've posted these two affirmations for you today, but keep an eye on this blog -- because over the next few days I'll be posting more for you to see. Hopefully, you'll find one or two that work for you, too. And if you do--be sure to let me know in a comment. I'd love to hear what you think--and if you have any affirmations of your own to pass along. Enjoy!
