Seamrippstress Breakdown = 200 mgs of Silk Fusion Prescribed

And here we have a representation of the beautiful liquid essence of a woman's once colorful spirit dripping from her soul to the dirty garage floor. Good thing paper towels (dyed rubbish that she hordes like a crazy loon) are being splattered with her misfortune so that they may qualify for her job when she gets whacked. It's been a rough month. The thing is, I'm one of those welcomed folks who call you out of the blue to sell you advertising. And when I really get on your nerves, well that would be toward the end of the month and this one has ended short, very short of my goal.

I wonder how all of you x-corporate cogs turned your fabric fetishes into careers? Was it Etsy or teaching or are you just so talented that you knew you could make a go of it. Because I'm about to go to "It's a Stitch" and ask them if I can sell sewing machines! My DH wouldn't care for the pay but wouldn't I be a happy little retail girl!
Here is my map of Houston sales targets, maybe this will explain my numbers this month. Look at the pretty WIPs! Wouldn't it be nice if they were finished or made into something useful? Or even better, if they could generate revenue!

Thanks sincerely for coming to visit and inspiring me with your comments and prayers of joy, hope and divine peace : )

Hi Elaine! (That's my middle name). Great story. Good luck with branching into a different career in which you will be much happier. I'm sure you will be a success with the passion you are showing.... Go for it!!! I know what it's like to be stuck in a job you just dont't like - tends to take over your whole life, even when you're not there....

That piece of fusion looks terrific, such fabulous color.

I could never sell. I worked in advertising for years but as an analyst and I always marveled at the ability of the sales reps to stick with it every day.

Yep, sounds like you might need a career change! I love the silk fusion piece - make more it will do your soul good!

Lovely silk fusion. I think it would be so nice if those of us who wanted to just play art everyday could make the same kind of income as if we worked out in the corporate world. In the perfect world....

Elaine I love reading your blog-you are so down to earth in the way that you approach everything.
And go ask for a job selling sewing machines--I used to and I loved it-only problem was I couldn't stand the boss-he was a royal pain in the ----

Hi Elaine. I found a comment you made on Miriam's blog, and seamrippstress name just made me hop on over. Very clever!
I am trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, so I can't give you any advice on that front. I do think you should have a job that makes you happy - one that you can pursue with passion. That is the only kind of job that will inspire you to do more, and that will yield you more money in the end.
I too am thinking retail in a crafts arena - get me in the field at least, and see where I can take it from there.

Thank you all for your sweet comments! I had to go back and edit this post because it's just not a good idea to drink Merlot and blog when you're mad at your job : ) I just have to remember it's only where I get my money, It's not who I am.

My daughter has a BS in Chemistry and is currently in a MS program for Art Therapy. LOVES it! I share MANY of your sentiments, but after 30 years, I will stick it out.

Sorry about you sales figures - you should get a job at cheering people up, you seem to have a natural talent

Those things look great. I still don't understand what it is you do for a living, though!
