In the last month or so I have been working on several custom orders. I like feeling like I have homework assignments because lately I have been dragging my feet when it comes to purely creating things for my shop. I am not lacking in ideas but I may be lacking in self confidence. It's a struggle I often find myself having especially when I am trying to make something new. It has taken me far too long to get some new things going and that is getting a little discouraging. My teachers in school would say to just keep making stuff no matter what the result may be. I always get so hung up on things being too precious and afraid of messing something up that I forget that I can try again. I can also scrap the idea and move on to something new. Today my plan was to get a lot of new things started and instead I finished up projects for others and now I feel lost.

I did make my first pot roast in the crock pot so that makes me feel a bit successful. I can smell it now and it is making my mouth water. Yesterday's shopping trip went really well. I came in under budget after going to three different stores. I can tell I am going to start hating Mondays. This week I no longer feel like I am eating scraps. I have also managed to not blow all of my weekly allowance yet but it is only Tuesday. I promised myself I would not go out to a restaurant and blow it all on overpriced wine but I may spend a little on some ice cream.

I am guilty of always feeling like I have to have everything figured out right away or I'm doomed to fail. It's nice when someone tells me I don't have to do that. It's like a little gift and I can relax for a second. But only for a second because I really do need to get things figured out!

This is so diary-ish. Let me give you something. I stumbled upon this blog today and it's super beautiful. It's called The Flower Drum and I came across it by following a pin on pinterest. Fill your eyes up with all the eye candy.
|Still waiting to find out if this passes the test. Fingers crossed.|
