One more chance and one more year!

These days I have been poisoning my mind with negative thoughts.  I asked god to give me a sign that I should continue on with my journey of becoming a crafttrepreneur.  The answer is yes. I  was beating myself up about spending time doing nothing and not being able to come up with some awesome designs and wondering if my whimsical writing is good enough. Practice is the key word.  Today I decided to look at my posts and I cam across this one.

I am posting this again as a reminder to myself.

Every birthday I take time to reflect  on my life and simply go over these questions.  All I can say is as the song says. I have been sitting watching life pass on the side lines and waiting for a dream.. .

So have I ? I have been trying to come up with a good answer and then I really had to think up a good excuse for why I am not doing what I want. Sad thing is I came up with well what if my designs do not sell. What if they do and I don’t have the money to fulfill orders?These are my worst fears.  So many what ifs and life is filled with them but should I stop living and seclude myself from the world. No and of course not. So here are my designs and they are starters and I know they are not the best but they are a great start. I am taking time to create and do what I love. Thinking back I have made banners for birthday parties, birthday cards, gift baskets, gift wrapping and trims,photo albums, and wreaths. I thought about the joy I got out of making these items and know that I took simple items and made something with sparkle and pizzazz. I am looking for part-time work in the meantime. I am dedicating myself a year to create and create and also take  the classes I need to become a teacher.So do I become a teacher, crafter or both. I wrote this as a pledge to myself and make it real.  I had to do it today because I went to Michaels and was so motivated and excited about all the possibilities. Yet another sign to move forward with this endeavor. 

Have a wonderful week!

God bless you all and have a great week!


Here is a preview of the poems I am working on for my gift boxes.

You are your Thoughts!

So please think good ones. I realized something really important today. Well it was actually the other day. I realized that I was visualizing wrong. I kept dreaming of my vision board and imagining I was talking to someone about what I wanted.  The crazy thing is I realized that I should have been living my desires, hopes and dreams. Here’s to dreaming about the love and happiness that I want to fill my everyday with

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
