Make something. You'll feel better.

Good day today! Spent the whole happy! I realized that I have not been all that happy when I spent the whole day enjoying everything I did. I won't bore you with the details but I simply did things I planned and things I wanted to do. How spoiled am I?

I started and finished a project which turned out perfect! My original project was a sewn desk organizer from "In Stitches" by Amy Butler which I bought recently and is full of the cutest things, you try and not be inspired to sew. FYI I hate sewing! So I gave up on the desk thing cuz it was a mess and started a frame/ribbon organizer thingy instead. Good choice.

I am going to do 2 more craft shows that are in April 10th -11th and May 8th. That gives me 3 months in a row! OMG! Thats 3 times as many as last year! I am really working on making my stuff as impeccable and professional as I can. But I constantly think up something new and that slows me down. Risk worth taking to find my niche. I do have a clue as to what my niche is, and that clue is paper and fabric sans the machine. Its the machine that I hate about sewing. Bleh.

I am close with a couple of home schooling families whom I cherish. One mom asked me if I would consider teaching her kids a craft once a month or so. I have been thinking and thinking about it and I like the idea. Maybe we could get all the kids in her circle and have Arts and Crafts with Ms. Alicia. I am looking up substantial crafts that would further their art appreciation and still be fun. Any ideas?

College, Crafts and...hmm Coffee

Thats my life. 3C's.

College is coming to an end for me, sorta. I have it planned out so I graduate in December but NONE of my college plans EVER go how I want. But I am taking 3 classes this semester, I hope to take 2 or 3 this summer and then 4 or 5 in the fall. Then what?

Crafting is my blood, its my air. I have Funk Finds in March which is AWESOME! So pumped. There is a show in Addison in May that I want to do, but they require a tax permit... (scary
music here). Getting my sales tax permit is something I have thought about for a year or so, but I always shy away from it because I know NOTHING about Taxes other than the Sheriff of Nottingham squeezed tax money out of the poor peasants in Robbin Hood. BUT I did it! I filled out forms and am an official
Sole Proprietor of AJSnow. AHHH How scary!

I pick January 25th 2010 as my first taxable sales date because it is one of my best friend Amber's birthday and the date that a close friend died so it will be an important date for me.

Coffee is fun to drink and fun to make. Not so, however, when the coffee ship (oops I mean shop) you work at serves 90% food and 10% espresso. I am NOT a cook. I am a barista. I can make coffee, I want to make coffee. I cannot make meals, I do not want to make meals. BLAH!
