Synchronicities and Starting Over's been a long time since I 've blogged let alone blogged on this platform.  Anyway, To update you on my miniature journey, I quit my full time job to be a miniaturist.  I'm terrified to do this, but they say nothing worthwhile is easy.  I originally quit my job to do this back in 2020..  I was just getting going and seeing progress on my sales then I decided to divorce my husband of 24 years. So, lets just say that life got in the way, I got a full time job, moved, and became an empty nester.  What a bunch of life changes all at once, am I right?

Anyway, I'm finally feeling somewhat settled in my "new" life.  It's like I'm 25 again and starting life over, but with a lot more wisdom. I bought a mid-century ranch home on my own, been doing a shit ton of healing from the marriage and life in general, got diagnosed with ADHD (yet another healing story).  My real life house has this really cool 2-sided fireplace, lots of windows and a big yard (which I'm actually not a fan of-more on that in another post).  I also quit my job again over a year ago to be an artist/miniaturist.  I have no idea what I'm doing, I've been pretty unmotivated to work for myself, but I also know that nothing comes easy and I feel like I'm getting signs from the Universe that things will be OK.  One of those signs is that back in January, I got a random email from Redfin Magazine asking for my input on Mid-century Modern decorating.  Here is the link to the article.  Mine is #24. I was thrilled and surprised to have this opportunity. Then in February, I got an opportunity to show my miniatures at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. They were doing a celebration of Colleen Moore's fairy castle.  I still haven't seen the castle in person, though.  I hear it's spectacular. I'm taking these as signs from the universe that I am where I am supposed to be.  There's a whole lot more about signs and  synchronicities, but I don't want to get all woo woo on you.🤣 Here's the thing...I'm broke, but I haven't been this happy in years.  There are days where I feel stuck, want to drop it all and go get a real full time job.  I even updated my resume.  But for some reason, I just can't give up on this least not yet.
