I have been sadly lax in posting to this blog - thinking that I could manage multiple blogs while working full-time, being a parent & wife, and attempting to make and sell my artwork. I could not!
I have had to do some serious soul-searching: Am I a crafter & maker, am I an artist, or am I something else?
|A few of my pieces (which have all sold - including 1 to Australia!)|
My current answer (although it may change) is that I WANT to be an artist who also enjoys being a crafter. I LOVE creating new things - especially when using recycled materials. I don't think I'll ever stop!! However 2+ years ago I was introduced to silk painting, and it turned my whole world upside down. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! And somehow I seem to have a bit of a talent for it (thank you God!). So I am not stopping my posts, but instead I have been posting under my artist name at www.RebeccaWachtman.blogspot.com and I will continue to do so. It started off as a way to advertise my artwork, but my posts have been evolving and are pretty much how I had been posting here.
I'm NOT going to shut this site down and move it to my blog, but instead I will just leave it as-is (and will even continue to respond to comments and questions) and invite you to come visit me at my new blog.
I will continue to make a variety (and sell a few) of crafts under my Re-Covered Treasures name via my Etsy store www.etsy.com/shop/re-coveredtreasures4u but new craft-related posts will appear on my Rebecca Wachtman blog.
Thank you all so much for your support over the years. I have learned so much and have been amazed by the response I've received. See you on RebeccaWachtman.blogspot.com!
