What a strange two days it has been. Let me preface by saying, I am doing my best to enjoy this awesome weather. Not trying to tease anybody, but I’m thankful that Mother Nature is gracing us here with 70 degrees, sunny skies, and a light breeze. The more I can keep old man winter off my back, the better (I’m a scrawny man, its so HARD for me to stay warm). I rather enjoy having the sun on my skin.
Now, I got my first negative feedback on Etsy. I told you, that flu stole nearly a month from me, and being backed up has taken its toll. The fact that someone was displeased really doesn’t sit well with me. It hurt me to see that I had disappointed someone. I want my supporters tended to and taken care of. So, I’m trying very hard to get everything taken care of and make sure everyone stays happy. My deepest concern is that the business seems to have taken a deep hit in the last month. Trying to knit current orders and come up with new ones to keep the money coming in isn’t as easy as I thought. That’s why I thought I’d go ahead and write and sell the pattern to my teddy bear for quick cash. This way, there is at least something coming in.
It dawned on me that with both Martha Stewart and Nate Berkus being cancelled, that I won’t get the chance to show off on two of my favorite shows….so why not start one of my own! I’d love to do a weekly Web Cast about your craft as a business. Many of you have never heard what I sound like, or have seen my smile in motion. I think it would be awesome! And CHEAP! All I would need is a cheap camera that has great video, then maybe I could look for advertisers! Maybe I should sell ads on my blog? Maybe I should hurry up and finish my book, “Will Knit For Food?”
See? These are all the things I’d love to tackle, would love to get to. But, for now, I need to finish the teddy bears. I have to keep this momentum going. It took so long to get out of that mess of homelessness, then living in a flophouse. But, it took only a second to get there. I’m not going to go through that again.
I think I’m going to go for a walk, clear my head, think about that handsome smile that has me a little weak kneed, then come back and watch “Howard’s End.”
I like it here. I like this little island and my simple life….I like finally being able to relax and enjoy the sun on my skin. So, I’m gonna keep up the donate button, if someone wants to help with expenses while I get caught up.
