We all deal with critics judging out work, not understanding what we're doing, spewing more hate and negativity than the world needs. Really? Do we really need more poison in the world? Was that person even asked for their input? Do they really not have that much going on in their life that they have to stop and get involved in yours or something you're doing? How sad for them. I'm way too busy. This topic seems to never lose its popularity on how to deal with the crazy makers, the pseudo PhDs and jealousfiers. Here's a great article that addresses this and gives tips on how to deal with it and keep it moving.

Flea Market Finds

Treasure hunting is one of my all time favorite hobbies. Flea markets and thrift stores  provide an endless supply of inspiration and incredible finds ripe for the savvy hunter. I found this piece at a Englishtown Flea Market in NJ for $10! You can't beat it. It's handmade, looks vintage, that's about all I know. It inspired me to create a nativity and he looks like he would fit right in with the 3 kings. How awesome is this?
