I love nothing more than feeling productive. I have been so busy lately, but I feel such a great sense of accomplishment.
First off, I had my shop made over - I hired mycreativepaper on Etsy to design a new shop banner, avatar, and business card for me. I love the result! She did an excellent job, I am very happy.
I also attended my first sales event. I probably will not sell at that event again, as the traffic wasn't great and most people weren't my customer demographic. But - it was a great learning experience. I have other shows coming up, and this gave me an idea of how much stuff I am going to have to haul around, how long it will take me to set up, etc. I did sell a few items, and handed out a lot of cards, so it was certainly worth my time.
I have been creating like crazy to get ready for my upcoming shows and for a possible holiday shopping rush. I love, love, love it when I get to spend my time creating. I am not so crazy about photographing, packaging, tagging, and all the other things that go along with running a business, so the days I can just create are wonderful!
I also have had several orders to fulfill, and custom orders to work on. I am almost all caught up now, which feels wonderful.
On top of all this, I have been substitute teaching every day, and now I have a sick kiddo to take care of. My wedding rings are starting to slide around on my finger - apparently all these years I wanted to lose weight, all I needed to do was become crazy busy so I stopped sleeping and eating, hahaha!
I am a relaxed, laid back person. I love lazy days and just relaxing, with nothing pressing to worry about. It goes to show how much I really love what I am doing here that I also love being crazy busy with all the responsibilities of running my shop. I guess we never stop learning about ourselves, as long as we keep expanding our horizons.
