The Practice of Art

The practice of art

isn’t to make a living.

It’s to make

your soul grow.

Kurt Vonnegut

My small business, tenacious lace, is almost a year old. This first year has been about learning when I need help and asking for it, finding a family rhythm that allows both my husband and me time to work and homeschool our children.

It is easy to get caught up in the business side of a creative business and I am discovering my need to space out other activities so I still have time to create. This week, I found a pocket of time to play with some new ink and stamps. Quotes have certainly captured my heart and I found one that reminds me to return my focus to the purpose of art and relaxing my attention on the never-ending business side.
