This baby is coming in seven months whether we like it or not.
(Trust me, we more than like it) It's starting to hit me that we have a
zillion things to do and plan. I've been agonizing over the fact that I have got to
find some way to generate income while still staying home with the baby.
I became very excited when a sweet friend suggested that I turn
a hobby into a living, by sewing for a shop on etsy. It has always been a dream
of mine, but I suppose I never thought I could actually do it. Hearing
someone tell me I could do it made me think, "Why not?"
I compiled ideas and quickly discovered the strong competition that I would be
up against. Then that same equally clever and sweet friend suggested that
I tap into an area that is lacking on Etsy: boys clothing and accessories.
I thought long and hard about what I could possibly make.
And then yesterday I noticed that Dana from the MADE blog is doing an entire
month on boy clothing tutorials. !!!
My favorite one shows you how to take a part used boys clothing to make your own patterns.
I am so excted to jump into this,
I will be researching fabrics and color palettes over the next few weeks.
I am so grateful for this blogging community that I have become immersed in. It has brought
wonderful true life friends, and so many lovely blogging friends that have comepletely inspired my life.
To think that I will be able to live my dream of being a stay at home mom because someone was caring enough to have faith in me, and because someone else was kind enough to share her knowledge. I can't wait update you on all this. Now if only I had a finished craft room to work in. One thing at a time...
