I made a big big decision a couple of weeks ago, I decided I was finally ready to quit my day job... you might have seen my facebook and twitter announcements in the past couple of days.
I guess the driving force behind this was moving home, we moved into our lovely new nest with a nice big room for me to work in and since then I haven't managed to make anything. I was starting to feel a little sad... here was a nice shiny studio and I wasn't using it, except as a dumping ground... my day job was really starting to get in the way!
I had tried to quit last year in September but I realised that I wasn't emotionally ready... I've never left a job where I wanted to go but still liked the place I worked and the people I worked with... the only problem with my job in a book store was how much head space it took up, I'm not one of those people who can just turn up for work and then switch off the second I leave the door... and it's hard to be creative with a head full of all the things I needed to do at work the next day!
So I have 2 weeks left to work out my notice which is very scary... soon I shall be a full time self employed craft worker and will have to get my head down and felt like the wind ... I have so many ideas, I hope I have time for them! My next big thing is I really want to reopen Feltanomicon because it is so much fun to make little monsters... and hopefully I'll be getting up and running on Dawanda too... squeeeeeeeeeee.... I can't wait for my big scary adventure!
