All right, so I am still practicing drawing with Illustrator. I'm getting it, I really am! This was from a tutorial I found on the web. I got a bit sick of the book, I just needed to draw something. This tutorial finally gave me what I wanted. I wanted to be able to simulate the stroke of a pen with a nonuniform width around all the strokes...finally figured it out (the secret is in the brush tool). Now, I know it's not perfect, but I think tom. if I get the time, I'm going off book completely. I'm gonna draw one of my own pics and we'll see what I really think of Illustrator. I think I'm liking it. One thing that confuses me is transitioning the work from Illustrator to web...gotta figure that out.
On a completely different topic...Do you all ever just want to make more money? Yeah, I get it, everyone wants more money. What I mean is, the hardest thing for me, about becoming a SAHM, has been not making my own money any more. This has nothing to do with Husband, it's all me. I have a hard time spending money, because I don't really bring any in. Yes, I have been enjoying my little blog design business, but I wish I could make more money with it. I just feel like I am in this totally weird money limbo land. All I did when I was a trader was squirrel away every dime, knowing full well that one day I would quit to raise babies. Now that I am raising babies, I think of that as the nest egg, and I don't want to touch it. This just leaves me not spending money and wishing that I had my own income. It all becomes a viscous circle in my head. For what it's worth, Husband just looked at me and said "you're nuts". I don't think I'm nuts, and Husband is lucky I'm not out spending without thinking! How do you all handle not bringing in the dough because you chose to stay at home with the kiddos? Is it just me...is Husband right, am I nuts???
