This Month's Art

August Artist
Sandi Plotner
(PROCLAIM IT! Vinyl Creations)

I had often admired my friends who seemed to have built-in gifts of music, art, public speaking etc. I thought I was lacking in any talent that could be nurtured and grown. I didn’t consider myself gifted in any area, much less passionate about anything. I didn’t know that I could challenge the negative information brewing in my brain from being told ‘you can’t’. I just accepted it as a destination.

I raised a daughter and three sons, encouraging each to find his or her passion. It wasn’t a conscious thing, it just seemed the right thing to do. Each of them did find something to be passionate about. Something to learn, to grow, to excel at….and to share with others. Those are stories for another time and place.

Here I am, a retired newspaper advertising rep and writer, a former travel agent, a one-time university enrollment counselor and an ‘always lover of anything that walks on all-fours’ realizing that a passion begins with taking the first step. It wasn’t about lacking in talent, it was about trying something new and not being afraid to fail. I saw things on Face Book and Pinterest and thought to myself…. ”I can do that”.

Always frugal, I found someone in the signage business who kindly gave me some scraps of vinyl to practice on. Then I made a discovery. I not only could do that, I loved it! And was good at it! And it felt good!

Fast-forward a few years and I find myself creating gift items, T-Shirts, store signage, putting names on baseball helmets, making custom memory gifts and even customizing folders for funerals (ones that tell a story and represent the loved one in a special way). Yeah, I think I found it ~~ the thing that rocks my world (besides my awesome husband who gives me 100% support and tolerates well that the dining room is now a craft room)!

Lesson learned: You won’t know if you don’t try!
