Artsyville. She has decided to "retire" her washi tape project, and offered a "buy one set, get one set" from her Etsy shop, and my awesome Mom gifted me with my very own set of six. You are likely to see lots of Artsyville washi on my planner and art journaling pages in the coming months!

As this week draws to a close, here's the spread that has been growing over the past five days:
Jodi Ohl. Via her eNewsletter, Jodi asked her readers to submit "burning questions" about art-making and the artist's life. She wrote a post responding to the question I shared with her, and I would love for you to check it out. Here is what I wrote to her:
Hi Jodi! I met you at the CREATE Mixed-Media Art Retreat in 2013, and I have a piece of your artwork hanging happily in my art room! My burning question has to do with balancing artwork created for business versus artwork created for personal pleasure. Once you become a professional artist, do you still have opportunities to create art simply for personal pleasure, or does it pretty much always have to serve some purpose--for a show, as a demonstration, as a commission, etc.? And how is your process affected? Is your process different when you are creating a piece for a specific purpose, versus just messing around, having a fun, trying out a technique, etc.?
You can read her response to me here. If you have a question for Jodi, she is still accepting "burning questions" to respond to!
