Let me tell you a story...

This little blog is about me, Hailey and my pursuit of happiness. I've decided to move on from modeling and to a new chapter of my life, artisry. I paint, I take pictures and I enjoy junking for vintage goods. All of this is done with lots of day dreaming in between.

I have a shop on Etsy that I just opened up in Feb 2009 and I am excited to see where it goes from there.

Thank you for your love and support.

Is it a disorder?

I've never been one who can just sit still, who can stay at the same job for years and live a simple life.  My life has to be colorful, complex, and overwhelming, yet fun all in one.  What's a good name for that?  If you read enough medical reports and listen to the news, it's probably considered a "disorder."  

I don't like files, I don't like organization really.  If you hire me to organize then I will but I hate doing it on my own time.  I don't like perfection and I don't like complainers.  But, isn't that what a blog is for?  For complaining really?  Maybe not, because I will not admit to being a complainer.  

My new thing now, which I think I'd be happy if it stuck, is being an Artist.  I like the sound of it, I like the thought of it.  I like the thought of being in my own giant roaring mess making things.  Beautiful things.  Actuality I've been a starving artist for about 8 years but just now am thinking to take it more seriously.  

I mean, what better thing could I be right now in a recession... but to be an Artist making things people don't "need."  In a recession they say people only buy things they NEED.  Well, painted roses and other strange things I make may not be "needed" so I suppose I will continue to starve in my disorder.

So I have a page on etsy.com now.  www.impulseART.etsy.com is my page.  Share your thoughts with me, tell me what you think.  I love the things I make and I am just as content to let them sit on my wall than anywhere else.  But I am kind of hungry and if you buy something then maybe I could get a .99 cent taco somewhere.  Don't worry, I don't smoke or drink so I wont spend it on that sort of stuff.  

This is my first blog post on here.  I have my other blog on www.DARRENandHAILEY.com, feel free to check it out.  I think I may post some of these blogs on there or maybe i'll just tear down my blog page on my other site and refer people over to here.  

Whatever it is I do, it'll be random, with lots of thought but little action that one can ever make sense of, including me.

  1. Hey.

    This is Sara. I bought your adorable mountain scene.

    Anyways, it's interesting, deciding to become a creative person - an artist. It's a process and really is so subjective. It's not like with degree granting programs that then qualify you to be able to practice.

    There's this new movie coming out "Art & Copy" that talks about the real artists in the Advertising industry - which is an oxymoron in theory. It looks pretty great. The people in the trailer look like characters at least.
