Promise Kept

To you, my blog. On Saturday I made a promise and I would just like to say that despite the laziness of the day I did actually get a few things done. I was sitting at my sewing table (where I also do most of the other crafty things that my brain conjures up)when out of no where came an idea. I made a necklace out of some scraps from other project that I had laying around and it is definitely one of my favorite pieces thus far. I will be posting it in my shop tomorrow and am really excited to see how many looks it gets.

On a silly inner child note. This shop on etsy has made me feel like a little kid again. I wake up every morning with hopes that someone has decided to make a home for one of my items. I sign in and the second I see if the number of items I have for sale has changed I either get really excited or let out a pouty huff and get a bit disappointed. My husband keeps reminding me that this shop is still new and I am only beginning. I know that I can only go up from here and am super excited to see how far up I can actually go.

When I woke up this morning I thought about doing some creative work and instead ended up on the couch. Then I thought about going on a walk. Which I actually did. Well kind of. It was short and sweet with the main motivation behind it being so that my dog could...go. Today is a lazy day. Lacking in motivation entirely. Change is needed.

So I will make a promise to you. My blog. I promise to go work on some things for my little cyber shop with hopes that I will make a sale and it will all feel worth it.

I think that I need patience. I need to have faith that things will work out and that my goals will not be quickly achieved, but that when I do finally achieve them, it will be worth it. All the worry. All the wondering if I am good enough at what I do. It will all be worth it. I believe it will all be worth it. After all, if making things and sharing them with the world is what makes me happy, then isn't it already worth it?

Confession. I am addicted. Without a doubt have a major problem. You see, I guess it started a couple of months ago. The searching. The pure addiction. What is it I am addicted to? Hobby Lobby, Joann's, the local thrift stores, etc. It is getting a little silly. Like I said, a couple of months ago this all started.

I have always loved to create things, make new things out of old things and seek inspiration from all the corners of my life. But now that I have my little shop in cyber space it has truly began to monopolize my thoughts. Every where I go I seem to get a new idea. My note pad on my phone is currently filled with crafty ideas and lose thoughts. The worry. That I will never be able to do everything that I want to do. I think my entertainment budget has been surrendered to my dreams of creating all that I can. Which is fine, for me, but my husband wants a new pair of shoes.

So in conclusion I think that I need to slow down. Slow Down??? An impossible feat to conquer. If you knew my crazy go go go personality you may just understand that I truly have a problem slowing down. But, for the sake of my husbands cause, I will try.

More to come...
