So you wanna be a crafter!

I think this phrase should be barked in some kind of Sargent major voice in a loud American accent coz its just that hard!!

How do you do it? How can anyone do it?

I’m finding it hard to even get motivated to go for a run after 10 hour shifts and yet to sit there and use my brain is just even harder.

can anyone give me a few hints? Is there a magic potion or something that no one has told me about?

Praying too a copy of Mollie makes certainly didn’t help and craft fairs seem to be few and far between in my neck of the woods unless you want to pay a months wages.

And   of course at some point I expect to pay that much but I’m not even sure I my work is any good.

In short……. HELP!!!

Well, that escalated quickly!

I have stock, as in products! I actually have things I have made which I can put up for sale.

I may sound shocked at this and I probably am as I just looked in my “finished” box and there are loads!

The problem is now that I don’t have a decent camera and even if I did how do I take photographs of products?

To Mollie makes!! for inspiration.

It just seems so complicated making things, taking good photos, getting them online, describing them correctly, packaging, business cards, blogging, updating, sharing, linking and then sitting staring hopefully at the screen waiting for someone to buy one.

The last time I started something like this I rushed and then ended up in this horrible place where I was desperately putting up posts of half finished frankly rubbish pieces to make my site look full.

WELL NOT THIS TIME!

This time i’m going to hide under a blanket until my work is finished then I might peek out lol

Overwhelmed

So this is a blog, one of those diary things you hear of and think is only for famous people.

I have one, wether anyone reads it or not is another days problem. For today my problem is trying to live up to other blogs.

My blog heros like dotty angel, Tilly and the buttons and Mollie makes are worlds away from my humble prefab.

But unfortunately I judge myself very harshly and if im going to do something it needs to be perfect or it needs to get out of my life.

Does anyone else have this problem? I want to be perfect at writing a blog, I want to do it with good photos and interesting subjects (like this one I hear u say? Oh you flatter me!)

The task ahead is so overwhelming its scary, how do I interest people how do I keep them coming back? Where do I find the time? And all these magazines instructing how to get a blog going is all well and good.

But how did they do it? Hmmmm
