    Really enjoyed listening to Nancy, I surely understand the problems of balancing life and art, it's difficult and some days very aggravating, as well as tiring. I think the person who pays dearly is my husband, I work M-F and at night and on weekends I try to slip in a little studio time. One salvation has been getting back to crocheting. I can keep him company on errands, in front of the TV, visiting friends.....and have-hook-will- travel, I can satisfy the urge to create with my hands while spending time with him.

    Truthfully, I'd love to be able to go without sleep to free up another 6-8 hours tho!

    Great interview Nancy, enjoyed listening to you!

    Balance? what's that?? Only kidding (sort of)...at this point in my life I finally have the time...my children are all grown and living productive lives. My career as a pharmaceutical package designer ended and so now I wake up each day and ask myself: Self, what will it be today? Painting? Collage? Polymer Clay? This is the first time since I was 14 that I am not working, going to school, going to work , raising children or taking care of an ill parent and I relish this time of my life. I just celebreated my 55th birthday and am looking forward to many years of artmaking!

    Great interview with Nancy! It's good to hear that even though she doesn't always have time to do art she just keeps on going. I make a conscious effort to turn off my internal critic; that voice that tells me I'm not getting enough done and why don't I get a better paying job. Life is short and you need to do what you love! It was also interesting hearing about the on-line workshops. I may try one!
