Hello!

I’m determined to keep myself sorted in the coming months and replying promptly to emails is always one of my priorities when it comes to keeping on top of things. However it seems to be something that many struggle with. Do you have trouble keeping on top of endless emails or are you able to manage the ever-incoming stream?

What are your tips/advice for keeping your inbox under control?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the great list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

As you may have noticed, we’re still having website issues from time to time. With CAC growing as quickly as it is (which is awesome!), our host is struggling to keep up. If you have any problems, please try links a second time if they don’t work the first time around and although the site can be slow right now, it will work eventually if you just give it a little time. We’re sorry for any inconvience and thank you to everyone for being so patient!

So this brings us to my question for the day…

How do you keep focused when things don’t go your way?

I’d love to hear your answer in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the great list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Monday is a holiday, so our job list and calls for submissions list will go up on Tuesday next week instead. Thankfully I realized this ahead of time, but often my unusual work schedule means that I’m unaware of certain dates and happenings. And even if I do remember that it’s a holiday, I usually work through it anyway — such is the nature of working for yourself and running an independent arts biz/community. How about you?

Do you keep unusual work hours? Do you often work through holidays? Will you be working on Monday?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

It’s a good idea to treat yourself every once in a while. Life is stressful, work is hard, and the pace that we we’re constantly moving at is enough to make anyone feel rough at times.

So my question today is…

What are your artistic indulgences? How do you treat yourself when it comes to creativity? 

Please let us know in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the awesome list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Have you ever experienced that “I wish *I* had thought of that!” feeling? Perhaps it’s a piece of art or line of a song. Maybe an idea for a story or theme for a play. I’m sure at one point or another we all have felt something like this.

So today my question is…

What is the one piece of work (art, song, book, etc.) by someone else that you wish YOU had created?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (and we always get plenty of response over Twitter and Facebook as well). And be sure to also check out the great list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I have great respect for mentors and their value to those who they pass their knowledge and experience on to. I’m always looking for new mentors myself when it comes to my creative craft and business practices, and I love helping others establish similar relationships.

If you could be mentored by anyone throughout history, who would it be?

I’d love to hear your answer below after you check out the great list of job opportunities on today’s list.

Hello!

Simon!

I had a very exciting few days last week that included meeting someone special, an interview, endless preparations, calls & texts & emails, and finally on Friday, I brought home my new dog!

Simon (full name: Simon Cool Ziggy Hayward Ossandon as named by my two little ones) is a two year old black retriever that came to us from our amazing local humane society.

We’re thrilled!

We have a cat, Tut, but after our other cat, Baya, passed away earlier this year, we were really looking forward to welcoming a new pet into our home.

So today my question is about pets and other animals (whether friend or foe).

Do animals inspire your art?

I’d love to hear your answers below (and perhaps even hear about your pets and animal-themed work) after you check out the great list of jobs I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I did a little people-watching yesterday and noticed one particular woman who was strolling past in a wonderfully colourful, wildly printed dress. I began to wonder what influenced such a vibrant sense of style. I find my own clothes to be colourful as well and I love prints. I like playing with make-up and am never timid about trying new & unusual hairstyles. I’ve always had a unique sense of style, which seems to be pretty common among artistic types.

Do you think your artistic nature influences your fashion and personal style?

Have a wonderful day!
