Yesterday was a busy day mentally. I did manage to squeeze in making a Victorian hair pin and a couple of Victorian styled barrettes. These were for my upcoming Victorian Hats and Hair Accessories Class.
I was gathering information for class notes, putting together a schedule of upcoming events to hand out, and thinking over the last month. A then a visitor dropped into the gallery. She had seen my gallery artist’s page with a link to where my blog is listed on Amazon for their Kindle reader.(Rennata Tropeano) She pointed out that Rennata Tropeano by Rennata Tropeano sounded a but full of myself, and she knew that I was not like that. I found myself in search of a new Title. I went to some random title generators to get the ideas flowing. I loved the one that popped up that I used for today’s blog title, but it would not fit the blog as a whole. I decided upon:
Growing Unique- an Artist’s Journey.
That is the recent alteration. On the topic of Future Illusionary Arts, I find that many people take a challenge like AEDM or Nanowrimo and define their progress in terms of fail or succeed.
I find that to be too much of the critic speaking. When it comes to a creative venture such as these the only failure is the failure to start. If you have started and attempted then you have succeeded. While I am not going to “win” NaNoWriMo this year, I kept a steady progress while creating and preparing a gallery for the Christmas shopping season. I personally count that as a sucess, not a failure.
