Graphic Design has ruled my life for the last nine years and now I've headed butt first into the lovely world of Freelance! For any information or to check out my multiple sites go to either www.firelightgleam.com or bandeau.etsy.com for my store.
My last journal was from almost two years ago. It starts with "well it's been almost two years since I last posted here".
Apparently people are still finding me and my old artwork! Out of boredom I poked my head into DA to see how it was going, considering I haven't really been here for four years, only to discover I'm coming close to 100,000. I think the last time I really looked I was somewhere in the 50,000 range?
So...If people are still looking at this dusty old gallery, maybe I should start adding some new artwork to it :/
So almost two years ago I posted that I'd be going on a hiatus from DA. I signed in today for the first time in...uhhh... I don't even know how long, to 1,000+ messages, 3,000+ new deviations and 600+ watch notifications. I'm thinking I'm just going to leave those there.
I went from buying a bookstore to owning a toy store to being the vice chair on the BIA and running several events and more in town. I haven't taught an art class in over a year and I've turned down I don't even know how many requests. Even the clients I used to love drawing for I've been saying no to because, really, I could already use a couple dozen more hours in the day.
Not that my page is overly popular to begin with -har har- but I figured I'd let y'all know that I've already found myself on an unintentional hiatus.
I bought a store earlier this week and suddenly - WHOOSH! - everything is flying past me and I've made more phone calls, started more accounts, and signed my name more times than I can remember. Buying a business is *so* much harder than buying houses.
But thanks to all this hard work, as of this coming Saturday I will be the new owner of what used to be the Cariboo Book Bin and is now 1st Editions: Books and More! http://1st-editions.ca/
I cannot wait for my merchandise to start
