on hair pins galore...

tucked away (I had to make one for myself, too!)

I finally have a bunch of new hair pins listed in the shop! I never seem to purchase enough supplies, and run out too soon. I was working on some new sets yesterday after work, and realized that once again, I was completely out of supplies in a couple hours. (Especially considering how I always want to make a few for myself to keep.) Ah, well. These will have to do for now.

I presently have five different styles listed (including a new design, seen above, featuring a lovely yellow rose!) all $5.50 for a set of two pins:

new hairpins, available in the shop!pretty hairpins, peachy.
lovely hairpins, coral.hairpins.

My goal for the next week is to have created several new notebook designs, eyeglass cozies and perhaps some new magnet sets. I keep getting sidetracked when it comes to my shop, and I hate that. I'll sit down with the intent of making something, then end up watching several back-to-back episodes of 48 Hours on WE (have we established my fondness for true-crime programming yet?) and eating chips and salsa (at least I've refused to buy any taquitos for the last few months). I need to be more motivated right now. If this is what I want to "do" I really need to get myself on track.

I think that, at this point, it's simple to just think of it as "extra money" - but if I'm working towards a larger goal, I need to keep that goal in mind. If I'm doing this full-time someday, there isn't really any room for that type of distraction.

Besides, whenever I do sit down to create something, I always feel so incredibly refreshed. As ridiculous as it may sound, it's really good for the soul.

  5. I know how you feel... Every time I sit down to work on a song I'm writing, I get sidetracked. In fact, this very second I'm being sidetracked from working on a song... It's a sad song. Like all my songs are. YAY!
