Captain of my Soul

A couple of weeks ago I had this mad crazy idea..I know what your thinking and yes...just a little bit crazy..but anyway..I thought why not open up a new shop on Etsy.I know..who in their right mind would want something else to do...I just couldn't seem to shake the idea of having a shop with the mixed media artist in mind. A store that sells a little bit of this and a little bit of that,some doods and some a little bit of thingamajigs and maybe even a couple of whatchamacallits..all perfect for the mixed media mind.Your probably so relieved I explained to you what I'm selling.

Check it out when you get some time..its not fully up and running but I'm getting there...Just click the link on the sidebar! "Doo-dads for the Mixed Media Soul"


"Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud,

Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul."
-William Ernest Henley

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

That is so funny! I have been thinking about opening another shop also! Not that I am selling a lot, I just want to have one with some cloths and jewelry. I have been thinking about this quite a bit.
You go girl! Good for you, follow your heart and do it!! Good Luck !

I am organizing my studio and making it a warm place to be, I just might take the plunge also!!
