Beautiful Inspiration

05011319390430131217a05011312140501131939aWhen Spring rolls around it is so easy to find yourself surrounded by beauty.  Some of these images were taken during walks on my lunch break and others are from my backyard and by backyard I mean the parking lot outside of my apartment.  Regardless there is beauty all around if we take the time to notice.  In turn we can find inspiration and gratitude in the little things.  Even though it’s raining at this exact moment, I’m still calling it a beautiful day because that’s just the mood I’m in.

Stay posi my friends!

Motivation

0428131641b

I think a bug bit me or this little gnome lit a fire under my haunches, because I have been feeling super motivated and inspired lately.  Not that I am a lazy slob otherwise.  I work hard, but I’m the type of person when I start to feel too overwhelmed with work and things I have to get done, I just shut down.  Which then leads to me mentally berating myself for not working harder, because it seems everyone else works, works, works!  But I know my limits after a hard lesson learned.  Plus I don’t want to live to work. Where is the fun in that?  Unless you love your work, than cheers to you.  I, however, do not at the moment.

What I am loving is this new vim and vigor I have got going.  I’ve got a plan and it is time to execute it.  I’m not sure if it is the refreshing weather(It’s the first year in a while that we have actual spring temperatures during spring and not summer temps.  It’s PA for Pete’s sake!) or the information I have read on selling handmade goods and starting my own business, but I am ready to go.  I just hope this lasts and keeps me going, because I know how I can get.

This is what I plan and I am posting it here because some have said that when you tell others about your plans it makes you more accountable.  I can already attest to this because R is on my case.  In a very good and supportive way.

Here it goes:

-Have my Etsy store up and running by the end of May.  This means I really need to step up production.

-Look into and sign up for craft shows.

-Continue to learn and grow my business.

-Post more on this blog, about my progess, my products, side projects(A girls gotsta stay sane), any handmade news, and other diddies I wish to share.

So there you have it.  Let’s do it!  Well, I’ll do it rather.
