IMG_1791I’ve been busy guys. I’ve been making burp rags left and right, practicing needlefelting (I took a class on it by the ever-crafty pink-haired Moxie), practicing some embroidery, doing DIY tutorials for, doing some intense training with our unruly pit bull, writing music reviews… and in the meantime trying to figure out what I want to do with my life.

I love crafting, designing and making and I’m definitely a writer at heart. Unfortunately, as of yet, making it alone as an artist with an Etsy shop IMG_1835just isn’t an option. Also unfortunately, since we’re planning on moving within the year, I can’t go back to school just yet. So this leaves me in a spot. I feel stagnant and want to move ahead with my career, BUT I don’t want to be stuck in a job that leaves me unfulfilled. The hubs suggested I get my technical writing certificate, as I’m already very tech-savvy and a writer. It makes sense.. AND often you can go contract or freelance and work from home. SCORE. So I’m thinking on it.

IMG_1828I’m trying to be more proactive about marketing myself and what I do… soo.. I just joined the EtsyRAIN team! Woot! I’m really looking forward to spending time with other like-minded Seattleites and learning even more crafting nonsensery!

ETSY SHOP UPDATE: I just listed a couple of new items. I added some super bold and modern burp cloths for you mamas and papas out there, and also an elegant doily bunting that would be equally as cute in a nursery as at a stylish wedding! I made the bunting banner for a DIY tutorial feature for Offbeat Bride.

So that’s it in a nutshell. I’m busy / confused / inspired / beaten down ALL AT ONCE! Good thing I have two awesome doggies, two kinda awesome kitties and one SUPER DUPER awesome husband, each of which make my wittle world go ’round.
