Hey everyone, I know where have I been for the last 8 days... well it's been a bit rough. But hopefully we're coming out of that and into something better. What's going on: well... let's just say it went sour at my former job. So badly that I had to walk away, and am still feeling sick over it all.
But Mon, July 9 I start my new career, job and hopefully chapter to my life. So I'm working on moving past all the ugliness of the last 10 days.
Now... onto some exciting stuff. I've been getting sales! :)
It's so very exciting. My Etsy store is getting hits and I've generated sales. I can't tell you how exciting it is each and every time someone loves my item(s) enough to purchase one. I just love it.
We were at a wedding last weekend that required a 3 hour drive. Perfect time to Kumihimo like mad and make bracelets. This was my favourite of all the ones I made. I just adore it. It is available for sale on my Etsy store but I have to say I need to make one for myself. Part of my plan for the next week is to make some items for me to wear (as I wouldn't want to wear something and then sell it after, ick!). To the right is this gem of a bracelet.
I haven't gotten a lot of stitching done. A mill hill magnet kit is almost complete however. It's cute little summer flip-flops. I'll have pictures soon. I'm hoping to relax enough that I can concentrate on working on dragons. And that my hands will stop shaking (from all the stress, they get bad when I'm in anxiety/stress mode) enough for me to feel confident enough to put stitches into linen. I miss my linen stitching. But am sooo thankful for my Mill Hill kits when that happens as I can't miss the holes as easily on perforated paper.
The new start I think I will be doing is this Mirabilia mermaid (South Seas #92):
Alright, there's an update. I know it's not very exciting. I'm hoping that things will get more exciting on the stitchy side of things very soon!
Thanks for reading and commenting. I do appreciate every one of you that take the time to visit here and join me in my crafting journey.
PS: did you watch Craft Wars on TLC this week? I wasn't sure of what I thought... I'm gonna try another episode and see what I think then.
