Got the table

How I do love Craigslist! Saw a card table for sale on Sunday for only $20 and last night we met the seller at Trader Joe's at a nearby shopping center and made the transaction. I'm on my way to starting my business! I've been brainstorming company names and once I make some inventory, I'll have a webpage desinged. Career coaches always say to do what you love and the money will follow. On the other hand, the term "Starving Artist" is for a reason. I like to look at what I do as half art, half craft, and appealing to most people, so I think it's more a matter of good marketing and getting my pieces out there. Baby steps, baby steps -- get everything in place and soon I can begin to actually produce! I've got so many ideas, I'd better get to the sketchbook!

Amy -- I plan to create children's art work for their bedroom/nursery walls by making collages.
Here are some examples that are done with paint, and I can do the same sort of stuff with collage and market it to people with money. Look at the price tags!

Once I get very good at children and babies, I would like to expand into something that would go in other rooms of the house. Fine Art works. That's my goal!
