One of the steps towards doing that will be continuing to work on my room, getting it painted, my desk and chairs refinished, making curtains, all that good stuff. I want this room to really be mine, a place where I can be inspired and productive. I need to set down a specific hour a day to write.
Another big step will be redesigning my blog. I like what I’ve switched it too but it still needs so much more work! Marcus works for a great design shop called Airtype and Matt, one of their designers, is really good. We might get a quilt/design trade in the works which would be awesome. He could also possibly help me design my Etsy shop, something I still want to be a reality by the end of this year (which is quickly approaching!). Marcus apparently has a whole slew of other ideas to get me out there and into people’s blog feeds. I’m excited about it!
We would both love if I didn’t have to work out of the home, if I could make a living off of quilting and then be able to take care of the animals and food and the house (which will hopefully include a garden and chickens before too long). I still might want to work a day or two a week in a coffee shop because I want to be really good at that but not needing to have an hourly job sounds wonderful.
There’s a lot of ideas going through my head and a lot of dreams I’d love to see achieved. I thank all of you that do read this and tell your friends! SewItAll will be growing and it’ll be a good time.
