I miss those days.
Now it seems like as soon as summer gets here, we're preparing for it's end. The days go faster and faster until suddenly another whole year's gone by and we're back to where we began.
I haven't written in awhile, mostly because I didn't know what to say. More accurately, I felt like I didn't have anything to say. I knew what I was feeling but I didn't know how to express it. Earlier today, I decided to just take out the metaphorical blank piece of paper and just see what words came out.
Honestly, I was a bit surprised to see that my last blog post was in April of 2016. How has it been over a year without anything to say?
That's not to say I have been idle. I've been thinking. I've been thinking a lot of thoughts, and now they're in some form of a cohesive format. (Thanks to Jen, who seemed to know exactly what questions to ask to bring me to the words I needed.)
I've decided that for one thing, I'm going to stop doing the craft fairs. The two I've signed up for, I'm still going to do. I still have a bit of inventory, and yarn, and I've made the commitment. But after that? I'm done.
I'm going to put my main focus into my etsy shop- EvidentlyMotley. Over the past year and a half, I've reduced my handknitted and sewn items to almost zilch (I've still got the line of pin cushion thread catchers in there- price reduced for quick sale) and I've expanded my line of stitch markers.
