I mentioned a bit in an earlier post about balance. I have been working on that a ton lately. Trying to balance my chores, personal family time, this desire to sew, sew, sew, errands and the many other things that I want to fill my day with. I want to start working in this blog again. I love this space and have had big plans for it in the past but most of them are still waiting to be realized. We will have to see how things pan out in that department but I did want to stop in and say hello and let you know what I’ve been doing.
There has been lots of making. Nothing new, just more of my favorites. The good old items that are familiar and easy for me. This kind of making is so refreshing for me. When making things like these my brain can rest a bit from the overload of ideas that sometimes burden me when I sleep and yet my nerves are settled and calmed as I sit and create. I made enough to set up a table at the local farmers market. I had coasters, magnets, notebooks, tissue pouches, notecards, zipper pouches, and a couple other things. Not one sold. I had fun though. Thisbe joined me with some dipped marshmallows and made a few dollars. This was more of a yard sale site/flea market rather than a farmers market, not quite the place for hand made goods. Thisbe did get inspired to go through our two huge tubs of stuffed animals, so we may be back to this locations, with a different type of goods to sell.
I’m working on getting my items loaded in the shop. It will be slow but some should be added daily.
I’ve got a new twist planned for my birthday give away this year and I am hoping that I can fund it with things that I make. So all sales in the esty shop, 100%,will go towards supporting my give away this year.
