Well yesterday I was pottering in my sewing/ scrapbooking room and came across Shnuckylove stock that I had around. I decided to stop my hand-made business to concentrate more on my family and scrapbooking.
When you own your own business, especially one that is solely based on hand-made goods, it consumes so much of your time and energy and takes away form everything else in your household. If you have a hand-made business you know EXACTLY what I mean ha ha.
Do not get me wrong I LOVED what I did, but in the end I became so flooded with orders it became a chore and my love of sewing was killed...
So it was really nice to be back in my room looking at my fabrics and finding all the "pretty" treasures I have in there.. It is making me want to get back behind my machine, but this time to do more things for me.
I really want to make a start on all the pinterest goodies I have pinned, all the patchwork and quilt kits I have tucked away. I think it is time to dust them off and to start crafting again for the pleasure.. I also have a ton of patchwork and craft books that I have purchased with the intention of making something from them, so this year is the year.
I mostly miss sitting down in my arm chair and just stitching to relax.
Then who knows maybe one day I will reopen Shnuckylove , but until then I need to tackle the growing number of kits and "pins" that a growing by the day..
Till next time
Much love Bernii xx
