My New Business

I'm just going to do it.

I went thru 12 years of school, only to be followed by 4 1/2 years of college, 2 majors, 3 internships...and now I am an assistant manager at a retail store.  The truth is I wasnt sure what I wanted to do, but I'm a go-geter and sitting behind a desk all day didnt seem like something that was right for me.  Now I'm certainly not a millionaire, but I have job security and I'm making pretty good money for only 2 years out of school. I happy? Am I fufilled? Am I doing what I Love?

I love all things crafty, and last night my sister (Debbie) and I decided to go into business together.  Repurposing furniture, making cute decorative crafts.  Now all of you are great, and can do all these things, but most keep cant, wont, or dont know thats where we come in.

I want to fill my days with things I love (ie...paint, a glue gun and inspiration)

I'm sure I'll be selling things on ETSY soon, but honestly I just hope this works.  Id love to be able to work from home, and continue to do what I do but just make a profit.  I would love to be able to quit my real job and make my passion my real job.  I would love to be able to have kids, stay home and make money.  Am I asking for too much?  I hope not.

Last night I couldnt fall asleep, and eventhough I worked last night until 11, I woke up this morning at 7am with ideas in my head. 

I'm new on blogspot...I would love some followers, even if you dont ever buy a thing, but if we could get inspiration through eachother, and you could give me positive and negative feedback, then maybe I could make my crazy little dream come true. 

A life filled with things you love...thats all I'm looking for.

Wish me luck today on garage sales, today is the first day I go to look for others
