I am super excited today! One of my necklaces has been featured on October Etsy Picks over on the gorgeous Lobster and Swan blog - a blog I have followed and loved for many years. I am so thrilled that something I have made has been featured somewhere I have looked to for inspiration myself.
It has come at a perfect time too. I have had a little wobble recently about whether I am doing the right thing - giving up a job that I have really enjoyed at school to work for myself. I've been worried I might be lonely, poor and misguided.
After a good telling off from my sister, and remembering the comments of an acquaintance who was so encouraging - saying that he admired me because as adults we don't often experience that excited fear of the 'new' that we experience as children because we rarely put ourselves in the position of the unknown - I am feeling positive again. It's true - I am scared, but in a good way. It will be hard work and I may be a tad cash poor for a while, but it will be worth it if I can be my own boss and be creative. I can show my girls that they can choose whatever they want to do in life if they work hard. Exciting times ahead!!
