This will bring in enough money to ensure the rent and vital bills are paid. Elaine can continue to work at Art of Adornment full time with no worries about variations in the size of her income stream. I've got four days a week to work my own endeavours. The reduced hours don't affect my benefits — Elaine and I are still covered by extended medical and dental.
I can't overstate how excited I am about this. I've never believed in the all-or-nothing "day job vs. starving artist" binary opposition. I'm firmly opposed to starving.
