The Beginning of a New Crafty Lifestyle
Let me announce: I was laid off from work this week.
Pat and I are fortunate enough that he makes a good living for us and has a stable position at the company. As such, I don't have to be in too big of a rush to jump back into full-time employment. Yet, he would prefer that I don't spend my time sitting around the house and 'playing in the craft room.' He wants to see some effort on my part and a real attempt to bring in at least a little income. [And, no. . .he's not bossing me around or acting like my father or anything like that. As my soul mate, he really does know me. That means helping me find a direction. Otherwise, I'll just flounder around without ever making a decision. His encouragement is really a blessing!]
Obviously, I'd like to (1st and foremost) CRAFT more. Thus, I'll need to (2) start selling my wares to meet Pat's "monetarily-productive" request. Of course, being the neurotic I am, I have to (3) start with some 'training.' As well, having the opportunity to (4) blog more often and share this process is definitely in the cards.
And that's where I stand right now.
I'm excited, I'm nervous, I've got to be out of my mind [I.have.a.degree.in.psychology.what.the.heck.do.I.know. about.making.selling.and.marketing.ANYTHING]
