Hi Friends! I apologize for not keeping up with the blogging like I used to. Things have been so busy! I thought I'd take a few minutes and give you a little update today though. :)
My sewing business is constantly changing and evolving. I recently decided to close down my website. It wasn't successful and was just sucking out all the joy (and my extra time) trying to keep up with it. All of my items are still for sale on Etsy, I still have the same facebook page, and I ended up pointing my domain to this blog just to make things easier. I also moved my Project List back to my blog for ease of use. You can now find it under the Custom Order page up top. I'm still working on updating the rest of my links!
Last but not least, I've been trying to put some focus on myself. I try to take a walk every day so I can get some exercise. I cut back on training for a 5-k and trying to loose a bunch of weight. Weight loss has slowed but not stopped! I'm down 20 pounds, with 15 more to go. I'm happy with my progress so far. I also try to put on nice clothes and make-up because it makes me feel better. And I try to do something just for me every day.
With me being a 'single' mom it can be tough. The dynamics to my single parenting and running a home-based business are different then a truly single person. I'm still married by my other half is on the other side of the world fighting in a war no one really even cares or thinks about anymore. It can make for some long days of worrying. Journaling helps, as does just trying to take things a day (or minute/second) at a time!
Until next time… have a great day!
