I promised pictures of everything I was working on today. My scarf is 95 percent done, I painted two frames but I haven’t done any decorating yet. I have so many idea’s of what to do I can’t decide which to try yet! But I do need to order more frames before I paint anymore.. I was also going to make some beaded letters when I realized I had an inch of wire left. Nothing is a total bummer like not having what you need to do a craft. So I ran out to the store 😛 I bought more wire and of course some maroon and gold beads 😀
I am super excited at how much I got done today! Never in one day did I think I would finish a whole scarf! It usually takes days but ever since I’ve had this craft fair in my head I have been so determined and not wasting any time. It’s amazing what you can accomplish in a few hours when you really have your mind set on it!
One thing my mom keeps saying to me is that she doesn’t want me to push myself so much that this doesn’t become something I enjoy or do for fun anymore. She did a lot of crafts while I was growing up and one of them was making bookmarks. It got to the point where she wanted to sell them so she found a book store who would sell them. They ended up calling her asking for more orders all the time and she realized it wasn’t fun anymore. She enjoyed doing it when she had the time, energy, and inspiration but when someone is wanting more now – that’s when she lost the fun of it. I know she’s just looking out for me but I’ve been needing something to drive me for the past couple of weeks. My craft enthusiasm was going down hill and my ideas were good but not exciting. Now I am so excited I can’t see wasting a few hours watching TV anymore. Forget that!! I’ve got things to do 😉
I’ve also been cutting back on my computer time. If you are facebook friend you have probably noticed that instead of being on for five to six hours a day it’s dramatically dropped to two hours.. I’ve still managed to get posts completed, check email, keep up with my etsy mom group, and make a few facebook comments and statuses so I think this two-hour limit is doing me some good 😉
Well it’s getting late and P will be here bright and early at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow so I think I’m going to go crochet for 30 minutes and then head to bed. Thanks for stopping by!!
