This past year has been a rollercoaster for me to say the least. I’ve lost a lot of friends and some family. I’ve somehow managed to homeschool 3 preteens throughout most of this pandemic. I lost pets. I’ve stopped talking to toxic family members and it was long needed. I’ve started my own graphic design business and started to post my artwork and some products to my page!
I’ve learned to do alot of things on my own due to being alone most of the time other than my children. I don’t have a support system in place and not a lot of my friends even know I’ve started this. I don’t have a cheerleader telling me to keep going. I literally wear ALL the hats for One Page At A Time Designs and I am so proud of myself for getting the site up and running in the general direction I’m going with it. I feel like I’m accomplishing something by just putting my artwork out there for the world to view. You see my whole life I’ve been an in the closet artist as I like to call it. I don’t like people watching me draw or half the time even seeing the finished product. Im not really sure why. It’s probably an anxiety thing no doubt! But here I am flaunting it and I’m so freaking nervous. Of what I am unsure. The unknown reactions I could get I suppose. Or maybe it’s just not being as good as the next artist. Who knows?!? But I do know I love to draw and create and am so happy I’m finally confident enough to share it with you! Thank you all for being here with me and watching me grow! I appreciate each and every comment and site view! You guys rock and make this possible for me! I can’t wait to see what we do in this coming year!
I honestly haven’t sold a damn thing yet! Lol. Not due to a lack of trying let me assure you! I’m still creating designs and artwork to put up as I want these all to be hand drawn originals by me not just a graphic stolen clipart! I also have three children whom I raise by myself therefore I have no money to put into the business as of yet and I’m still learning everything as I go. The studying is killing me! But it must be done to get to the next level! I feel like it will take me a bit until I make that first sale but hopefully once I do I will soar! I know some people that love my art as much as I do so hopefully I find my tribe!
I have however made a few graphics and video previews for some of my fav indie authors when I felt the impulse to create graphics arise from reading their amazing books! These ladies inspire me so much all the time and they don’t even know it, I’m sure! I love creating graphics to go with the books I’m reading and I don’t think they could pay me to stop if they tried lol. I also love seeing my graphics being shared or an author commenting that they like it! That gets me so excited and I run around showing my family, who think I’m nuts obviously, telling them about the next design I have planned. They are pretty much sick of my shit by now haha!
Indie authors are my jam and that’s something I have discovered more and more as I journey through booktopia and find my favorite authors of dark romance and the random few from the other genres! As I get to know them on their socials I feel special bonds with some of them that I’ve never experienced with other people! I feel like I’ve finally found my tribe and a place where I belong and am appreciated for my input. Not to mention these ladies sure do know how to make you remember a man,that’s all I’m saying! Haha!I have so many book boyfriends and I know each and every personality and kink! They are so well written that I feel like I actually know them and can imagine what their day to day life is like! Those are the stories I live for! And also the ones that have distracted me from this crazy world we have lived in for the past two years. So my sincerest Thank You from the bottom of my heart to ladies who keep the pages turning and our imaginations wild! Cheers To All The Indie Authors of the world! I see you hustling and I see your determination! Keep getting that girls! Your all queens in my eyes ladies and with Booktok or not you still ALL deserve a crown! Thanks for a great year with some amazing reads! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year!
And I will leave you with one of my sexy lady pictures that I just finished and wishes for the best new year and great health and memories throughout! Let’s make this year count! 2022 Here we come! Lets get it!
