My world has yet to settle into what I would consider routine. I’m still running around like a chicken with its head cut off. This must just be a new phase in my life that I’m struggling to acclimate to. I get up, get the kids ready for school, go to work, come home, clean and make dinner, run the boys to wherever they need to go, come home, do more cleaning and with a lot of luck on a good day I get some sewing/crafting done. Then its back out the door to get the boys, bring them home, feed them, shuttle them through their nighttime ritual and then it’s to bed after more cleaning, working and delaying. Delaying meaning not going to bed when I ‘could’ because instead I’d like to take a few moments to just revel in the calm that exists only when my boys are in bed and the animals are sleeping.
I have my first craft show coming up the last weekend of October. I’m fighting the urge to slip into panic mode as I’m still a ways from having a sufficient inventory. For about 2/3’s of a day I was convincing myself it made sense to just forget the whole thing. It’s all stupid and a waste of time. I need to give up my goals of selling my creations. I had myself pretty darn convinced. And then I got about 20 minutes to myself to actually sew. And it felt great. And in that moment I was reminded as to why I want to pursue this.
I’ll post some pics soon of my stuff. To keep me from getting bored or overwhelmed, I have several types of items I’ll be selling so I get to switch up my projects and still work towards the same goal. Brilliant!
On another note, I got word that my dreadlocks are just about ready to be shipped! I’m so excited!! This is a picture of what they’ll look like. I can’t wait to get them!
eep! So excited!
