After the new year I was clear on my goals even if I did not share them with you.
Reading other peoples goals and things they want for the new year was inspiring.
One in particular stood out for me ... Lexalex's list was simple and a lot like mine.
But the typical libra tends to over-think things and so
I had these voices competing in my head and listening to the wrong ones caused self-doubt to take over.
So I just kept knitting and knitting and knitting ....because that is the only way I keep sane.
So the the voices kept on..
"where does this blog go from here?"
"I stink at this SAHM thing....! "
"Do I want to go back to work?"
"Oh I want to try that , and that and that pattern"
"My sewing machine is collecting dust and stares at me ... waiting"
"There is so much I want to do.... Why do I feel like I have no time left?"
***just keep knitting***
After I saw this quote I had an "aha moment" ...
|~quote by Asha Tyson~|
I had friends I haven't spoken to in awhile contacting me asking me if I sell my handmade things.
To have friends say "make me something... I love everything you make". It gave me the push I needed.
I wanted a shop for sometime but did not think I was ready.
There is only one way to find out ... and so I will be working on opening a shop on Etsy.
Just a few items first will be on sale and will be adding more along the way.
I have a lot to learn and so I will be doing lots of studying on this world of online selling.
The answers started coming...
"I have all I need"
"I don't have to rush time, just enjoy it"
'This blog is a log. It moves at my pace, and I'm fine with that."
"My kids got to bed happy and wake up singing... at the end of the day I rock this SAHM thing"
"I want an online shop and create... I don't want a regular job, I have been working the grind too long"
" I will be trying something new every day , no matter how small."
These are the happenings in my life since my last log...
I have added some of my old projects and new ones on my Ravelry Projects page.
The captain is working on some new projects in the shed to be added to our home soon.
He is also officially on payroll for the first time in the new city.
The King is mastering the cello and growing a mustache... he takes after me, although I've never tried the cello
The little one is taking interest in helping me around the house.
I have loved all the comments and requests from friends.
The inspiration I have received from this lovely mum and this one has moved me to try new things.
Like baking for starters.. and it wasn't a disaster.
Any tips on starting an online shop ?
Have you started on your goals?
