Work -- times two

Well ladies and gents, I've officially been employed for one whole week! The one week hiatus from my blog can only be explained by the one solidweek of on the job training I just received (aka becoming one massive sponge who cannot make room for even one more measly drop of water - system overload). Despite the usual stresses of starting a new job, I am really excited and loving each new person I've met. Even better, I'm feeling extremely lucky to have landed where I have. So now the real work begins and I can't wait to see where the future takes me! Enough of that, and I promise the work-speak will be kept to a minimum on the blog. It'll be the last thing I'll want to talk about I'm sure!

I may not have had the energy to blog all week but thankfully I was still able to make some time to finish up a couple new pieces for the shop. Thank goodness chevron is still so popular, because I am still l-o-v-i-n-g it. See below:

Ombre Chevron, Chevron art, Ombre art, Blue Chevron, Pink Chevron 
P.S. I am making a personal commitment to continue painting in whatever spare time I'll have outside of the new job. Now that I've had the last few months to get some good work in, I couldn't imagine letting it go. It would just break my heart! Anyone else out there working a full time job and selling on Etsy who might have some helpful hints on work life balance? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Til next time folks, and have a great week!
