The Lay Off from my job really has made me explore my creative side! At first, it seems like it’s the end of the world. All doors are closing. Then comes the lack of pride and even the lack of motivation…
It’s actually quite the opposite! The Lay Off has made me think beyond what I was doing. The ideas came flowing. Possibilities were around every corner! Now, my creativity seems endless!
The Lay Off has allowed me to open two Etsy sites!
The Craftology 101 Store Etsy site is a great find! Were it not for The Lay Off, I wouldn’t have came across Gina, my partner with this Etsy store! She came up with the idea of personalized canvases and I design them! We hope to go beyond canvas art too!
The other store is the branch off my Social Ballyhoo business. This one is all my own. So far, I’ve designed Christmas cards, Valentine cards, thank you cards and more! www.etsy.com/shop/ballyhoodesignahoo
It’s been such a blessing to have this opportunity to take me creativity beyond a newspaper ad! I’m learning new design skills at the same time! So thank you Previous Job for not CLOSING a door but for OPENING a new one!
