I Sold a Collage!
A fellow preschool mom and friend bought my collages at the last two auctions and recently asked me if I could make her a third one because she wanted to hang them all above her bed. I was super thrilled and flattered.
She has four sons so I represented each member of her family with a bird. It came together easily (I didn't know if it would since I was making it for someone and thus had an added pressure to make it well). I was pleased with the colors. She had said she wanted to pay me but I had no idea what to ask. When I gave it to her, I left it up to her to decide how much she wanted to give me. Today she paid me $50! It is the first collage I've ever sold. Feels pretty good to create something AND get paid for it.
