what's not to like about it?

stamped jewelry.
 
 
I . love . it!
So what's not to like about it?
well...
I have a serious NEED to create "my own idea" or "something unique."
That not many others create.



I started creating stamped jewelry for two reasons:
 
 #1.
Due to the economy, our family needed extra income.
(needed is an understatement, but I could not think of another word to replace it with)
I saw potential in stamped jewelry.
{and so far has proven correct}

#2.
Due to changes in "Childrens' Jewelry Laws"
I needed a back-up plan.
{no clue what is going on with those laws}

so...
what . is . wrong . then . ?
 
I'm feeling:
 
"I'm my designs are NOT different"
"I'm my designs are not unique"
"I'm doing something I find TOO EASY" 
(am I being too transparent?)
"I'm not being artistically challenged"
"I want desire to be noticed"

B I N G O

"Notoriety"
{definition - the quality or state of being notorious}

Is that so bad?
Is wanting to be noticed, a selfish thing?
 I hope not.
But something needs to change {again...i know..."she is I am so wishy-washy"}
 
But I know
when I get to this state of mind
something changes
and that something is always better.

I call it a "Holy Ghost" Feeling.
If you know what I'm talking about...
shout out a good AMEN!

Am I going to stop making stamped jewelry? No.
I'm just waiting on The Lord.

Wow, you have no idea how much you echo my own feelings. You pretty much hit it on the head. It's hard trying to live with purpose, bring in an income AND feel creatively fulfilled.
