Good morning. There are 100 things I should be doing instead of this.
But I have a question.
How many of us have heads full of crafty ideas, houses full of the stuff to make them, but, and this is a big but, not enough time to do so or do not have the confidence to do it, market it etc etc?
A bit about me.........
As you know I have two children, Jose, fifteen and a half and Jasper nearly 14. I am on my own so money is tight. I am hopeless at paperwork, being organised and seem to have lost the house work mojo (or what ever!!). But inside my head I have so so many ideas, so many things I want to make, I CAN MAKE!!! and sell, if only I pull my finger out.
I had an interview this week for a job I didn't really want. I used the interview as a learning curve. I think I have only had one proper interview. Lets just say this one started with the 'plum in her mouth' lady saying I was very young. (I knew from that second I wasn't what they were looking for), she asked lots of questions I really don't think were relevant to the job I had applied for, eg. about my marriage (s) ((Whoops!! did I ever mention I got married to my very first boyfriend at the tender age of 18?? - a week later everything went pear shaped, very long and complicated story)) She ended the interview with this question (forgive me but what business is it of hers anyway) "Do you have a partner". My reply was no i have a dog. A friend said I should have said ... yes and she is very supportive, kind of wish I had now!!
I guess what I am trying to say is it made me realise how un-confident I am. I knew what I wanted to say. I knew all the answers but I couldn't seem to say what I wanted to.
So what do I want to do? Erm... Not really sure. Care sector appeals slightly. Also I would be able to take that where ever I go, what ever I do in life.
What ever I do I have a house to run, bills to pay. You know the boring bit of life.
So do I just stay put in the job I have (but I think things are going to change, not really for the better) or do I take control of my life, etc etc. See if I had a diary I would write this in that, ask myself questions and still not come up with the answers.
So for now I am going to make some of the stuff that is floating around in my head. Actually use the etsy Shop and the folksy shop I have.
I am going to go through some of this paper work and shred LOADS and compost it. I am going to put all the washing away. Get shot of stuff I do not use, will never use, never wear.
So Would anyone like a bag full of hexagons, all on cards (you know the patchwork ones) some sewn together. I was given them and it would be a shame for them just to sit here. Let me know. I will post a photo of them later. In return all I ask for is the value of the stamps back. I have some craft books too.
So I will sort out and post some photos later.
