About

Living the Cliche

As most creative souls - I was in love with the concept of creating and selling my work. But was that realistic? I have bills, a mortgage, car payment...

I made jewelry for fun, sold to friends and at local craft shows. I had big dreams of selling in galleries, selling at high end art shows, maybe even owning my own shop one day. I worked full time as a waitress in a high end restaurant. I made good consistent money and I believed that was important, but I was very unhappy.

One day I had a co-worker tell me about his father-in-law. He was a successful pencil artist. His work became very popular after his death, but he was poor during his lifetime. Now people make documentaries and books about him.

I mentioned how jealous I was, didn't want to be "waiting tables". He told me I was living the "stereotype". This is what was "expected" of people like me - we wait table and hope for that "big break".

Right then and there I realized that I have control of my life and my future. I can't sit around and hope for a great opportunity, I need to create it. I set goals and began working on achieving them. A few months later, I quit my job and took my jewelry full-time.

It has been 5 years and I opened a brick + mortar shop in October 2011, just off the beaten path in the historic village of Boalsburg, PA called Contempo Artisan Boutique. I love that my community supports handmade and small business. I hope to continue to grow.
