When I started doing crafts I got this brilliant idea from a friend about selling things on etsy, starting my own business, having my own website, and making enough of an income on the side to stay at home with E and not have to worry about doing anything else. Then after thinking about my one year plan and being so proud of how I laid it all out and estimated how long it would take me to make a good stock of each item and the budgeting plan I thought to myself. What if I had a five-year plan? So I set up a five-year plan depending on the income that I made from selling that I would try to open my own craft store.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because I might be doing my first Craft Festival this year!! It’s been five months into my one year plan and in October I am thinking about doing a table and selling what I’ve made so far! I can’t believe how far I’ve come and how much more I still want to do! Out of all the things I have ever done in my life arts and crafts has been my only consistent thing. I’ve tried and failed and given up on a million things but somehow I’ve kept arts and crafts in my life.
This goal has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I’m not anywhere near giving up yet!! If I do end up doing this craft festival I’m going to have three months to get a bunch of ideas and things together! Once T’s mom gave me the idea my brain has been churning with ideas and possibilities and who knows .. maybe it’ll surprise me 😉
Can you believe it? Five months in and I’m already feeling like I’m on top of the world!
