During the week of Oct. 15-Oct. 18, I was asked by 5 different people if I was an artist. Earlier in the week, I decorated tables for our Relief Society dinner and fireside. Later on in the week a lady saw me drawing out layouts for Christmas cards and asked me if I was a graphic artist. I said I wasn't an artist, but that my dad is! I told my Mom about the comments I got. I thought if I were an artist I'd have to take classes, at least. She said I could consider myself an artist just because I do artistic things. She also said that lots of people don't take classes and consider themselves artists. Hmm, that made me feel good. Then I talked to my dad about the artist questions and the compliments I got. My dad gave me the biggest compliment of all. He said, "You can tell them you're more than a graphic artist, you're a graphic designer." Ooooh....wow! I don't know if the head swell has gone down yet! LOL!
