As many of you know, I am a graphic designer by trade.
I knew from the time I was a junior in high school, that I wanted to spend my life designing and letting my creative spirit soar.
I have held graphic designer positions at 5 different jobs since high school graduation, and 3 of those 5 have closed their doors.
I received word from my boss yesterday, that our tiny little print shop will be going out of business and that Friday is our last day. I still can't believe it even as I write this terrible news to you. I am at a loss. I have had the wind knocked out of my sails so many times that it's going to be hard to pick up the pieces this time around.
Jobs are NOT plentiful in my neck of the woods or any neck of the woods for that matter.
I truly wish to continue designing my samplers that so many of you have come to love, however that won't and can't replace my full time salary.
I think it's time to leave my graphic arts field in the dust and pursue a mid-life career change. I haven't yet received a sign from "The Big Boss" as to what I might be gainfully employed at.
My faith has always been such a big part of who I am, and I'm finding it so very hard to look to the heavens for help and guidance.
Please pray for me and my family, that peace and prosperity might soon again visit our place down by the creek.
With much love,
