What to do, what to do?

A glitch... but it goes back to a glyph (mystery). I'm being advised (coerced?) by husband, lawyer and other friends to give up designing rubber stamps. I'm not going to explain "why" here because it makes me SO ANGRY I COULD SCREAM!!!! 
Ahem... so, this is the only successful business I have ever had for such a long time - although not so successful in the past few years. I'd really rather "do art" but I don't know what I'd "do"? I keep coming up with ideas and have half-baked business plans, but I just can't approach it as a business. I've been an illustrator, t-shirt designer, stamp designer, store owner (don't enjoy that very much right now either)... I really like to make things. But not "crafty" stuff. I have ideas for creatures, paintings, products, murals... and I make them, whatever medium they need to be. I don't like trying to sell things, and other than stamps and postcards, I don't like making multiples. I'm an idea person. I have really good ideas. They scare most people. Right now I'd like to turn an old warehouse in town into an AWESOME Art Center. I can't stop thinking about it. I don't have the money and I don't know where to get it from. And I don't want to "run" the center. I just want to design it and then work in a studio there. I'd like to be a part of a group of working artists, and yet, still be independent. Can a serious introvert get lonely? So, the mystery, what do I do with my life? And what if I run out of time?
