I have finally done it!!

Finally I'm blogging!! Thank you to all that believed in me and my art. For those out there that have no idea what the big thing is with me and the blog well let me clue you in. I have a degree in Graphic Design and I hate computers!! Irony, got to love it. My dad always pressured me to go to college for computers ( he is a computer networker for RoadRunner) but I wanted to draw. I told him I would rather be a starving artist then have some job I hate. Well you can tell who won that fight! I went to International Academy of Design and Technology for Graphic Design.

Since, I have gone no where fast with this degree I have decide to start creating again. That was about seven months ago. I haven't done any creating for about 3 years before that. I know what your thinking, Why? If I call myself an artist then why have I not been creating? Well, the answer to that is I got caught up in being married and having babies. I am a co-dependent which I found out seven months ago. I forgot about the artist in me and thought more of the wife and mother. I forgot who I was and what I need to live. I lost me but ....

Now that I'm on the right track I thought why not go all the way and live my biggest dream! I want to have my own gallery of art, I want to be known I guess is the best way of putting it. So I have start my etsy shop which is and now I have started my art blog! I'm on my way!

I just want to give a very special thanks to a very talented artist who is an inspiration to me and with out her encouragement I would never have done any of this! Thank you so much Carmen Namaste! Her blog is

All art is on my etsy for sell!

The Climb
Trying to settle in the positive flow of happiness.
Enjoying the serenity of being in the moment.
Letting the sweet calmness coat the skin and warm the soul.
Looking to the future with truth telling eyes and a hope filled heart.
Cautiously working toward a goal of a lifetime.
Climbing the mountain more and more each day.
Only going a half a step at a time but learning how to steadily get balance.
Focusing on the positive of this journey.
Not letting the negative slip in and tear it all down.
Trying to let the artist within show all its wondrous creativity.


  1. Congrats on the new blog Tara and on opening your Etsy shop! So proud of you. Keep following your creative flow and listening to the gentle whispers in your heart. ♥

    Much Love,

    Carmen Torbus

  2. Hi Tara, I think it's great that you've decided to live your dream of being the artist you want to be.

    As I was reading your article I thought it ironic because my husband has a degree in art and he does computer networking and websites for a living. He integrates his artist skills into the websites he creates.

    Well, I wish you the best and hope you enjoy blogging about your passion.

  3. You gotta try. Then if it doesn't go as planned try it a different way like Amanda said about her husband integrating his art with the websites. If that doesn't work then try it a different way. At some point you will get the results you want or you may find what you want has changed tracks.
    Good luck.
