Great to hear from you! Not overwhelming at all, and no worries on not replying to me -- I get it and it's totally fine so put it out of your head. And don't worry about not continuing with your MFA -- you have to do what is right for you at any particular time and you know when something is just not sitting well for what ever reason.
I'm glad that your doing well now and trying to start your own business. Your very talented and it is wonderful to see you on crafthaus.
Are you still in bloomington? If so you should come by the studio and definitely partake of any and all workshops/lectures that we host. I don't think we have one in the spring (we used all our $ for the fall) but NEXT fall - Oct 18 & 19th, 2013 - we are having a HUGE event with 3 exhibitions and a two day symposium. If you are here in bloomington we would love to have some help and are looking for volunteers.
Photos -- our grads are taking some good photos now. I need to have one of them show me our new camera in the spring. If your around I will arrange a day/time when we can go through it together?
At the very least - you should come be apart of our Metals Guild. We are having sales and our next one will be for valentines day. It might be a great way to get 'motivated' to get in the studio and make some things.
Anyway - good to hear from you and have a great holiday.
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through December 15, 2013.
Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!
Please note that ALL images sent to the website are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! If your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please review the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab.
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor at live dot com, I will do my best to be of help.
I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
