I have been so torn about the holidays, my Etsy and Artfire stores, hosting a trunk show, and creating more pieces. It has taken time and much thought but I have decided that it is OK for me not to have a trunk show, OK for me to not stress about my Etsy and Artfire shops, and OK to let the muse rest. I have felt so very guilty about these decisions. The weight has been heavy. I am trying to get things moving with my business, slow tho it may be. And my trunk show generates a fair amount of our Christmas money. I have given myself permission to let it go. I need to focus on healing and focus on my family. It is ok for me not to "do it all". Why do I have to give myself permission? Silly question, huh?
I have just installed Google Analytics for my blog, hope to be able to track "stuff", want to be able to track my Etsy also (anyone have suggestions?) I will do it when time allows. I will create when my muse is ready and not forced to. I will like this. This is supposed to be fun, yes? Creating is a peaceful thing for me.
So, that is where I am. Feels good to get it out there and say it. It is OK. :) Well, I am off to get my turkey stuffed and in the oven, make green beans, mashed potatos, and sweet potatos. Hope I haven't forgotten anything!
