What are you in the closet about? Your love of frogs? Your secret bottle cap collection? A crush? Although I like to think I am an open book, I've been hiding a few things in my life...namely my love of singing and my love of crafting and artwork.
For years, I've kept songbooks in a drawer and paintings in a closet. "These aren't good enough to share," I thought. "I like them, but who would ever want to hear/see these?"
Well, as it turns out, some people do want to see them and hear them. A few have even been kind enough to feature my items on line or add them to their virtual favorites gallery. "Great journal," a customer emailed me today. "Gave it as a gift and they LOVED it."
Touched by the response, it has encouraged me to branch out even further and add a few more personal items to my on line Etsy store. Although I am just starting out, it brings me great joy to know I can make something with my bare hands and get paid for it.
So, what about you? Come out, come out, wherever you are. The world is waiting and so am I.
