Oh, Monday...

Is it just me, or is anyone else having one of those Mondays? (Although, this made me giggle and feel a little better.)

Happy Monday...?

Indie Business: Why I Do What I Do

[A collage I made for Nate, for our first Christmas together in 2009. Lyrics from "our" song.]

Etsy just launched new About pages for all its shop owners - a place to share the story of your business and why you do what you do as an artistpreneur. And this got me thinking...

...why do I do what I do? Why collage art?

Here's why.

Words, images, colors, textures...individually they are beautiful. But arranged and re-arranged, collaged into something new - the sum is greater than the whole, and a transformation takes place from the mundane into the magical where individual pieces become threads woven into in your story. 

What words tell your story? What photos tell your story? What ticket stubs, subway maps, love letters, song lyrics, photographs, or scripture verses tell your story?

Your story matters. 

Let's capture it. 

If you're interested in a custom collage, please contact me! I'd love to work with you to help tell your story. (And if you'd like, you can take a peek at my new about page here - you might need to be logged in to Etsy to see it.)

Much love, 

PS. I'd love to know...why do you do what you do?
