The addiction of the bubble

I’ve been here for a few weeks now; my gallery is filing up nicely with a wild range of products. This is not my first site, so I’m used to waiting and working for my sales.

However, no-one mentioned how addictive this would get! Every day I can’t wait to go through all the groups I belong to and see if my art and clothing appears on the front page of each. Then reading my comments left. Then having a flick about and commenting on the work of others too. Finally answering my bubblemails.

One bonus is that bubble makes you think in directions you would not normally! Birthday and Christmas cards are expected. As is the occasional funny shirt. But joining groups makes your thought processes take on a whole new lease of life.
For example; “Monster’s Ink” – strange and scary art. Not my usual kind of thing (cute and fluffy is me) but I have suprised myself with the odd ideas I’ve come up with! (who else would have made a picture using a photograph of this year’s Christmas turkey’s foot!) and the “boredom group” I managed 2 pictures on the subject of DUST – weird topic, and again, not something I would normally do. But FUN definately! I love seeing the reactions and comments! Many make ME laugh out loud -I think that’s the benefit of having writers here too!
There’s another thing! Writing! I haven’t made something rhyme since I was 12! What fun!

I’m enjoying working to a kind-of schedule and bending the brain for ideas. I gotta join some more groups I think. they are having a great effect!

Groups also means that it’s easy to find my friends! All my old ones are corralled in one group and I’m getting new ones all the time. I love seeing what they are making and doing my comment-rounds. That’s another way to get the braincells firing! I would not have made things for valentines day already otherwise, and would probably have missed out on the sales. My friends and groups are my inspiration. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
