Thank you for sharing that video, Deb. I realized when I watched it that there is a reason why I jump from creative activity to creative activity...the support for a woman's endeavor is just not there like it is for a man.

When I owned a business (very close to you - Brenham), my customers thought the man working for me was the owner. I was just happy for the business and didn't correct them. Now I wish I had.

I am me. I am creative. I blog because the blogging community gives me more encouragement than any other I have been in.

Thank you, again, Deb. I'm suggesting this video, through your site, for all woman.

Oh, this made me cry. Been there a thousand times. I could write a book about this one. I think I will. Thank God for customers. They & my husband are who encouraged me, made me believe in myself. And the bills I had to pay justified me staying in the studio for 10 to 16 hours. There was peanut butter & jelly on carvings, but nobody seemed to care. thanks for this, Deb.
I can relate to Cher... everyone wanted to give my husband credit for what I did. Some still do. Even women! I correct them, and point out he helped, he cooked supper...
Blogging has been the answer for me. Support from other artists, friendships with other people like me. Not having to justify WHY I just have to have a certain pen, paint, etc. to do art. They understand. They understand how I have a 100 ideas running around in my head at once. I've never had that before, and I've been doing this for 28 years. Thank all of ya'll for such a huge present! ~PJ

Just saw this now. Husbands are so important, though. One husband can undermine your work with one mean sentence, that will last in your head 25 years. Another can pitch in, cook supper, go to the market, just be there with physical encouragement as well as words. We're lucky we have that kind...
