This year has not been good for me on a personal level. I have had to face so many disappointments and have been let down badly on several occasions. Such is life.
When I attended the Women in Business course a while back I met a woman who took an interest in the things that I made (I had taken a few samples along). She said she was blown away by my work and said that she knew a whole lot of 'creatives' that she would like to introduce me to. She said that she had a studio space where she did photography and she had artists who worked either side of her. Her proposal was to have me go along to the studio and brainstorm with her things we could make to be sold on her website. She also wanted some work done in the studio a couple of days a week that she would pay me for. I thought it sounded like a wonderful opportunity and contacted her the next morning.
We exchanged emails over a couple of weeks. She kept changing the dates and forgetting to give me the address of the studio. Since my last communication she hasn't contacted me since. I am wondering if the 'studio' was something she had dreamt up.
,,,,,,,,,,,and this is how the cycle goes. People big up what I am doing and then run a mile or leave me in limbo. I don't think I can take any more knock backs. I am sick and tired of feeling used and of people thinking that it is OK to waste my time. I think it is time I toughened up. I refuse to be a doormat.
