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]

I’m a jewelry-artist, treasure hunter, & nature-lover that finds joy in the smallest things. I hope to spread that joy and inspiration.

Good luck from a fellow Fairhoper. Psychology is good for all sorts of things. It helps you know yourself, and as long as you're pouring yourself into your craft, then the better you know yourself, the more authentic your work will be. Cheers, John.ReplyDelete
