Illustrating and sewing bags

Someone just requested a sketch and wanted to know the price. Since it's going to be 24x36 I said $45.00 and they agreed! My sisters were telling me to say more than that, but I'm not quite secure enough in other people liking my work to raise it too high. Hmmm, maybe I should post some more things on etsy. I have some ideas really running around in my head especially for bags. Right now it's at idea level, I'm becoming inspired by things I see every day and I pulled out my sketchpad today because I just couldn't take it any longer. After my last quarter ended I completely stopped sketching! It's been like 3 weeks!
Miss Molly, the owner of the shop i'm interning at is great. She told me that if there is something I make I can see if it'll sell at the shop. I think if I made some really big bright bags they'd sell as beach bags. Who doesn't want to go to the beach? I saw two styles of bags that I really want to try, not the same types of fabrics, but the general look.

Hi World! We just finished up our 6th annual youth and family fellowship Friday evening. It was very hectic and stress-inducing but it was still a lot of fun. I got to hang out with friends a lot and to me that's a big deal. I dont think a lot of people have most of their friends in other states or at least hours away. Oh I miss everyone so much! The preaching was exceptional. The message about being a dreamer and following your dreams really stuck out for me, as well as the one about faith and the message about taking one step at a time...I'm at a transitional time especially where college and career are concerned which is nerve-wracking. I'm starting my internship and my last quarter of school! *AAGHH*
Anyway, speaking of college and/or career someone asked about a very large sketch and what price it would be. it gave me hope. These things happen when I'm least expecting them.
I'm praising the Lord for such a wonderful week...I'm beginning to appreciate my family and friends and all my blessings soo sooo much more than I ever did.
