I'm joining Christina and her weekly Made by Hand linky thing, because I have actually been doing some making today.
I am slowly changing my attitude to my crafty activities so it is more than just a hobby, I'd like to earn a small living making things and selling wool, so I need to put the time in and not feel guilty about all the other things I could be doing. If I was working for someone else doing the same things, I wouldn't feel like it wasn't work and not worthwhile, so I don't really understand why I feel that I am being self indulgent when I am working on things here at home by myself.
Am I worried about what other people think of my choices? Do I feel like I should get a 'proper' job? Am I just easily distracted? I don't know. Hopefully I will be able to get rid of these negative thoughts and enjoy the making process and get excited about making things as more than just my hobby. I think I really need to do a bit of time scheduling, and block in some solid crafting time, maybe then I would be a bit more productive......
Anyway, enough of my moaning, let me show you what I finished off this morning, a couple of my little tree decorations. They had been sitting here in pieces for ages, (I think I showed progress pictures a long time ago), so I am glad they are complete now.
The idea was for me to make a collection of these and sell them coming up to Christmas, but they are taking me so long to make, I'll probably only have a few finished. Hardly seems worth it!
Gotta get my act into gear.
.....so here is my work space, looking pretty crowded as it is doubling as my wool shop, but I love having all the wool around the space, I don't have to go far for colour inspiration!...
I am also working on a little secret something that I hope you guys might like, it is not really that exciting but I am having fun putting them together, but more on that later......
Anyhoo, what have you been making lately?
Before I go I'd just like to say a big hello to any new readers (and all you long time guys!) that have stumbled across this little space recently, thanks for visiting here, my posting has been quite sporadic lately, so I appreciate all the visits I get and I enjoy all the comments you leave, so a big, friendly wave to you from me! I have been struggling with things to blog about recently, hence the lack of posts, but I'm sure my inspiration will come back soon!
Talk soon .....xxxxxxxxxx
