Blogging, marketing, selling.....We artists have these on the brain pretty much 24/7. Everyday we wake up searching for another creative way to market our art and where we can sell it.

I have days like this when I am so jazzed I'm jumping up and down like a 5 year old and I also have days where I have to make myself do something because sales are really bad and I'm not sure when my rent payment will be in my checking acct.

So today, I woke up at 4:00 and couldnt go back to sleep so at 4:30 I put the coffee on and began writing in my journal like I do every morning. Today I started with, Good Morning, God, thank you for.....and wrote 5 pages of everything I was grateful for. I then opened my magic sketchbook and filled 3 pages with Halloween sketches and lots of fun things. After that I got on the computer and worked on my little Xmas Fairy drawing listening to my "fairy" music. It was the best morning I have had in a while.

I am calling this day an In Between Day because this is the type of day where I am just going to "be". I am going to have fun with everything I do today, from my art to all of my dogwalks with my little friends. It is a day to just step back from all of my marketing craziness (not that I dont love it) and just have fun. I am going to put on my Red Sox jersey and root for my Sox tonight and have fun doing that. I will be making In Between Days a regular part of my life from now on to just be thankful, have fun and play!! :)

I agree with that for is great to focus on creating, but take some time away from it too!
