So, at the same time all this was going on, I had two of our grandsons come for their week long stay on our boat, while their parents attend a wedding in Mexico. They happened to arrive while I was dealing with all of this. adding to my frustration and despair, I felt bad I could not be in better shape to enjoy them upon their arrival. The next morning I woke up and said to the Universe, "If I am suppose to do this, send me a message. Help me find a place to assemble my tiles (See picture above. I was looking for somewhere to assemble them and spray on the acrylic paint finish ect....because we live on a boat and don't have room). Well shortly after we got the kids to school we ran in to Curtis, the guy who keeps everything running down here at the marina, and he has a little shop he says I can use! So, Yay! Also, I found a supplier for the wooden panels! Originally this supplier said they would not be able to sell to an artist. I would have to get them from a retailer who carries them here. When I spoke to the retailer, they said it would take over a month to get the panels here and the price through them would be 40%. Going directly through the supplier will help me in keeping my costs down, which I can pass on to my customer! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Okay, the Universe has answered me! I am going to keep on trucking! the lesson of this story is if I had given up, this idea would never have stood a chance in working out!
The other thing I was dealing with these last few days, was that I was waiting to confirm my bank account through Pay Pal, so I can finish setting up my store and start selling my stuff. Today I got notification, after waiting a week, that I have screwed up something on the bank account number and the account is not legit! It is a bit frustrating, I am not going to lie! But, if I step back, take a breath, and enjoy the process, I can see that maybe it is suppose to happen in its own time, in its own way, and not how I think it should happen? Maybe, just maybe, it will work out so much better? I am suppose to have fun, right? Well I haven't been! So here I go, letting go and getting back on the beam. I am going to do this post and then maybe I will make some art! That's what I want to do today!
Thanks for joining me on my Journey...love, happiness and faith to you all! Tomorrow or the next day I will put some pictures of my boat guests (grandsons and grand dog) up here, so you can get a glimpse of this crazy girl's crazy life! It is a lot messier here right now, but so much more lively and fun with the boys (and Coco, the chihuahua)!
Ta ta for now! xoxox
