Down the Rabbit Hole

Alice in Wonderland- available at Champignons Etsy shop





I am feeling abit like Alice who fell down the rabbit hole. I began my journey online about 5 months ago...feeling very lost... confused...and small (from my lack of experience!) All the while trying to absorb every morsel there was, finding all kinds of interesting things along the way...wanting very much to go home...I kept trying and trying...and trying... Soon I found so many other artists that were in the same hole as I was...and so many others willing to help...so if I can just say...






hold on to your dreams...



don't be afraid to look back...



just keep moving forward ...



things do get better (soon you will be bigger!)



and you will grow much richer from your experience...






I have just begun this journey in Wonderland and have so much more to learn...still trying to reach the key to the door! I am mesmerized by the talent and the helpful friends that I have found along the way (thank you) and I look forward to what awaits me on the other side...

i love this post.
the picture & title are a perfect
representation of your thoughts.
there are many days that this "hole"
just seems too big to climb out of
and i can only hope that continuing
to move forward and live the dream
are the solution. there's nothing more
important than faith and belief in oneself.
i'm so thankful to have great friends
like you along for the journey. it makes
it all seem that much more bearable.

all my best - christina
