Still At It After 25 Years

Posted by Kyle Design on March 9, 2007

Well, I’m still at it. I’m an artist, a designer, a craftswoman, an entrepreneur, a boss, a small business owner, a webmaster, copywriter and even a product photographer. And still loving what I do even after 25 years.

I’m never quite sure what to say when the subject comes up of what I do for a living. Which phrase do I pick? How do I condense it all into a couple of words that would really encompass everything that I do? Each time I blurt one out, it doesn’t feel quite right, not a fully accurate representation.

I’ll let you know if and when I come up with a good way of phrasing it. What do others in a similar situation do? Can anyone out there can recommend a title? Please let me know what you’ve come up with.

So I’ll try: I’m an craftswoman working in mixed media who designs contemporary handmade gifts that I sell through a website as well as through galleries around the country. Whew!! A picture is worth a thousand words, so if you want to see exactly what (and how much!) I do, please visit my site at Kyle Design.

But I’m a wife and a mom, too. My family is involved with a new charter school in our community. I’m watching my weight and my cholesterol, trying to exercise more, monitoring my stress levels and trying to control my chocolate intake. The usual – just trying to juggle it all, not be a bad mommy while still finding time to laugh with my husband.

So I plan to muse on what being a woman artist has been like for 25 years, trying to do it all and feel like I’m not doing a half bad job at it. Sharing some of the tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way. The ups and downs and sideways of life and work.Dragonfly Business Card Holder
