some issues

How do you make a living from the thing you love doing? Artists have struggled with it forever. I just read a post here from cicada studio's blog, and while it didn't necessarily give me any answers, it did make me feel less alone in the world of " what are my things worth?". My things being the stuff I make.
I want people to buy my goods.
I want to offer it at a reasonable price because I strongly believe that beautiful things don't need to be expensive.
I want to feel like I'm able to make more than $5 an hour.
In the meantime, it's great to be paid to make art because, truthfully, I'd make it even if I wasn't getting paid. Right J?
