New Year, New Me!
However we want to say it..things are a changin'. My life is a bit different than it was for my last post (which was an unacceptable 4+ months ago). I've been doing a lot of reflecting lately, trying to figure out what's important in my life and what I should spend my energy on. I feel like this is an opportunity for me to have yet another fresh start. We're all allowed to have one every once in a while, right??
As I think about where I want to be in the next 5-10 years there is always one goal that I can't shake. For years now i've wanted to own my own business. I probably drive my parents crazy talking about all my crazy ideas and projects i'm working on to get myself ready to do this. During these brainstorming sessions I think about the steps to get to where I want to be:
ultimate goal: own my own shop (whether it be brick & mortar or online)
immediate goal: BLOG MORE
short term goal: build blog & business online while holding down a full time job
Ladies and Gents...immediate goal complete. OK, not really, but i'm BACK! I hope this is the start of something great. I have the time, motivation, and lack of excuses to finally devote more time to my blog, my projects (crafting or baking), and building an inventory of homemade goods to sell (on Etsy, of course and at local craft fairs).
Here's another list, because i'm oh so good at them:
1. new name for blog
drum roll please.....welcome to Homespun!
2. new blog banner
coming soon (until then it will still read The Sweet Shop)
3. create Etsy shop
setting this up as we speak! Homespun Market (link to come)
4. create, create, create
starts THIS WEEK
5. blog, pin, post items for sale
Time to get cracking. See you around real soon.
And here are some inspiring quotes that have been getting me through the days..because blog posts with no pictures bore me.
