I've since turned my hobby into income in order to at least bring at little bit of money into my household.
I wake up in the morning. Send out resumes to new job listings and then spend a few hours working on Queen of De Tile. After a bit I head back to the job boards and send out more resumes. This has become my daily routine!
This morning my mother stopped by and saw me applying felt to the bottom of my coasters and passive aggressively said, "Why are you still making more of those? They aren't even selling."
My heart fell to the floor. Instead of encouraging me and seeing that I'm doing something to create income while being unemployed she put me down. She made me feel like I was wasting my time.
Do you have people in your life that you wish would back off and let you create your art? Have you ever been in a situation like me? What would you do?
