Creative Designs
For the past month I have been working diligently, creating a variety of items, setting up my etsy web site and determining how I can better market the creations I make. Given my love for writing and my desire to be published, I have decided a monthly news letter is one way to go. I encourage people to send me positive/inspiring quotes for the positive quote section of this news letter. You and your etsy site will be listed as the contributor.
The process I am going through as I develop this new business is spectacular. For all of my life I have been a care giver (and yes I do mean all- long story), but now I am feeling as though each day I am being rewarded as I do yet another activity I love (and is a bit less demanding). It is nothing for me to work from morning to night on the various aspects of my business. Before I know it, the day has flown by……

Getting Going.....

Never having blogged before my previous entry, I'm not quite sure what one does with these. I will be looking at the blogs of others to get ideas.....

A Dream Come True

Years ago I would crochet and make things for myself or my children. I then got busy and lost perspective. I was layed off from my job in May 08. By June my stress level went way up and I was dealing with anxiety attacks (this has happened in the past). Determined not to add medications, I picked up my crocheting again- trying to keep myself busy and guess what..... my anxiety has decreased to almost zero. My finances still stink and I have yet to encrease my sales, but I am working on it. Meanwhile, I am recommiting to what is important to me- my family and my desire to work for myself with flexibility. I crochet or do other crafts from morning to night (honest- ask my family) and I don't see it as a chore at all. I can't wait until our log home is done (we are cramped into a 14x60 trailer - 2 adults, 3 children, 2 dogs and a few toads and snakes-boys' pets). I am looking forward to setting up an area where I can work and organize supplies! I'm just thrilled to be doing something I love!!!! Hopefully I can make money at it too.
