I feel a little overwhelmed this particular minuet. I look at the blogs of my peers and wonder how they get everything done. Those with storefronts have maintenance (breakdowns, cleaning, ordering, and selling, etc.) to contend with, then have to go home and do family matters. And if that is not enough they seem to have etsy accounts, they blog, face book and twitter. And on top of all those they have to find time to make and or create their craft. I don't know where personal time comes in. Being single and or retired would help I guess, according to what side of the fence your on.
Just learning how to blog, use face book and set up an etsy account has taken up all the spare time I have and I'm not going to talk of the frustration of doing that much. ( I guess I just lied.) I do have a store front and I'm almost 66 and not as quick as I use to be. I guess I just wanted everything to be easy and an over night success. We all know better than that.
I think this may be part of my problem. Boxing up the last of Christmas, there always seems to be a melancholy feeling while doing this. But then it seem like in a month or two we are dragging it back out
It's getting bare, the last ornaments to come off, more needles on the floor and then good bye.
I can hardly wait till spring. WOW! I'm going out and buy some spring fabric. There has been something I want to make for the front door for the shop. I'll share when I get all the kinks worked out.
I do feel better now after talking this out with you. And will continue to go forward with having a successful blog. I think I will just sew for awhile and get a few more babushkas and baby quilts done. I have my etsy store built but will wait a couple of more months before opening.
I'm going to get my blog friendlier and more desirable and helpful to come back to. I truly covet any suggestions and help. I get so much out of some of the blogs I read. I just want to pass it on.
I pray you stay warm and safe with this winter storm.
Blessing till Tomorrow
