I was so kindly reminded by an aunt tonight that there are only 8 more Fridays left until Christmas! This means I'm only accepting orders for another 4 weeks! This also means that the clock is ticking to get Christmas shopping done for my family as well!
If you are stressed about Christmas shopping, take a glance through my Etsy store! All of the items you see there are already finished and ready to be shipped directly to you!
Please remember that I ask for at least a 2 week time period to complete orders and to ALWAYS leave enough time for shipping! I have an orders tab on the side of the page for you to place your orders!
Thanks so much!
Having a home-based business can be tough. Not sure how many of you have one (or two, or three...) but, as you can see, I have my It Works and I have my Crochet Creations! One thing about having a business is needing the drive. My drive comes from my goals. I figured if I can't be honest about them and share my goals for my business with my customers and those of you who are really interested in them, you won't know how sincere I really am! These goals are for both of my businesses! My main goals are to make enough money that I can visit family when I want to and not have to save for months and months and months. I want to be able to spend more time with my kids and my husband. I also want to help other people feel good and be happier. Whether they feel good through a warm hat or putting on a skinny wrap and finding their goddess, I'm happy either way! Shoot, do both!
So, now you know what I'm working toward! I'm working for my family. I'm working for fun. I'm working to help others. Everyone can always use some encouragement while working toward their goals. Knowing that I have followers is encouragement enough for me! Leave a comment with your name and where you're from, that will help me A LOT! Leave a comment with YOUR goal for whatever and you might just get some encouragement from me! You never know what form that encouragement could come as either! HINT HINT!
Until I write again, keep working on your goals!
One thing I have found about myself is that my evenings are so much more relaxing and calming for me when I have a hook and yarn in my hands. Whether I'm creating something for my family, my friends or filling an order, I am happier and relaxed. I know I can end my day with productivity! I find myself centered and regrouped.
A short blog today but how do you find time to relax and regroup after a long day at work, running around or just being busy?
Ugh!! I have found myself wishing lately that I could either crochet faster or had more hours in the day where I could spend with my yarn and crochet hook. Mostly because if I'm spending time with my yarn and hook, that means my kinds are home and I get to listen to them laugh, fight, play, etc. HOWEVER, today I find myself wishing I had more time so I could make a cute dress and then I find some leg warmers, which leads to a cute pair of yoga socks, and on and on! You get the idea. There are so many patterns and such little time. Who knew that there was such an abundance of amazing things to make with a hook and some yarn! So, what is YOUR
Every once in a while, I start a project and then things happen that I have to put it down. The dress you see was worked on for a number of weeks! As you can see, I eventually get there!! I started the Mermaid Set from RAKJ Patterns over the weekend and just now finished it tonight. While I LOVE to crochet as it is relaxing and calming for me, there are times where I might get frustrated, tired or things just pop up. Having two kids and two dogs will do that to a person LOL! So, if you are a fellow crocheter, I ask you, how many W.I.P's do YOU have in your stash? I have around 2 to 3 at any given time! Did I mention I get distracted too??
Have a GREAT evening!
Welcome to my FIRST EVER BLOG!! I am currently working on two orders! I love doing orders for friends, family and NEW people! I am proud to say that I have been honored to send creations of mine to Canada, New York, Massachusetts, Texas, Maine, Illinois and Iowa! I have a goal to eventually have something that I've made in EVERY state!
I will be posting again soon with a link, a pic or a funny story (my kids supply LOTS of them!) soon!
Please leave a comment on where you're from so I can see where some of my admirers, friends, followers, customers, etc. are from! I look forward to it!
Thanks for stopping by to check out the page and look around! I hope to have this whole blogging and website thing improved by the end of the century!
I love to crochet for my family, my friends and for others. I find my peace from a crazy day or just to relax and get my creative side going when I pick up a hook and yarn. This blog is my favorite pattern links, favorite projects I've completed and just some general crochet fun!
