Supply haul-NYAC

Hey Chicks!

Today I’ve decided to post about where I stand currently.  I am struggling with finding balance in creating and the business aspect of beginning a business.  I use the word struggle lightly because all of this is fun for me yet it is pertinent that I form somewhat of a schedule to balance the two.  Why?  I can’t promote a creative business with no products to sell but I must also learn the ropes of promoting my business so that I have an audience to sell my products to.

This isn’t all that I am juggling as I work two jobs and run a personal blog as well.  If only there were two of me!  Today was a productive day in many ways.  I was able to create the backgrounds of a few pieces and I went supply shopping 🙂  You can expect a haul post sooner than later.  Yesterday I actually assembled my first sketchbook.  I am proud of the design and the binding.  I will be selling an array of items once I post the products.  If you have any personal request, now is the time to get me making it.  This process has turned out to take longer than I realized but I am in no hurry.  If I only have 5 products for sale by April, so be it.  This is a labor of love and I will not stop until I am satisfied.

So far this adventure has proven to be productive on many levels.  I am learning ways to create, learning about myself and connecting with my Ma on a different level.  I am reaping the benefits at no cost.  I have fumbled with self-doubt the most but that has been the biggest lesson yet.  I am persistent to spread awareness and compassion.  We all have a purpose and mine is requiring me to push beyond my boundaries and get uncomfortable before my breakthrough.  I will succeed in this endeavor.  Success for me isn’t measured in quantity but quality.

I am facing challenges that have held me back for far too long.  I will conquer these and prove once and for all that I am enough.  Typing that made me proud of myself.  It is my dedication to the mental health community that will keep me pushing forward.  I once read a blogger apologize for talking about his poor mental health on his site,  you will never hear me apologize for my mental state.  I encourage all of my followers to #speakup and #stopthesilence in regards to mental health.  It spreads awareness.  If ever you are struggling with anything, feel free to contact me via my contact page.  I will respond.  Maybe not immediately but as soon as I see it, within 24 hours.

  2. I admire your positive attitude and vibe you give off. I can only imagine how excited you get when you’re in a craft store. OMG! if both of us shopped together, it would be such a blast. Craft stores are like an amusement park for me. :)💗 💖
