I've always been curious about blogging. Read my fair share of them, most of the time feeling a bit voyeuristic while doing so. Always wondered why people open up so much on their blog. Some people REALLY put it all out there. I guess they do that so other people (peeping toms like me) will read it and return. Sort of like reality t.v. - or a train wreck - you can't look away. I've never seen a train wreck, but lots of reality t.v.
Honestly, I'm creating this blog to support my creative business -- designing and creating accessories for you and your home. My business is called Infinite 8 Creative - thus the title of this blog. I'll tell you about the name another time (see, maybe you'll come back JUST to find out. oooh, i see how this works now.)
If someone happens to actually read this, you can find my creative items for sale on Etsy. Infinite 8 Creative
Who knows, you may even buy something. (go ahead, buy something!)
And I thought, "Okay. I totally will."
Actually, this idea of selling something that I made with my own two hands has been on my "to-do list" for a long time. It's kind of funny/pitiful how long I've been saying (mostly to myself) "I want to create things. Things that other people will want to buy." But guess what? Putting yourself out there and saying "spend your hard earned money on this thing that I made." is really scary for me. It's probably worth a trip to the therapist.
But after Kim's party, I felt supported and motivated. It felt like a good time to step out of my comfort zone and sell something. And I did! And I still am. And I enjoy it.
So this is where I will spout my word of wisdom (insert laugh track here) about starting a creative business. Because really? I am flying by the seat of my pants.
But come back and check on me sometime!
