I started this little blog in 2010 when I first moved from San Antonio from Denver. I knew no one in San Antonio so I retreated to my computer, to the internet, to blogs. I loved reading blogs and looking at other's handmade businesses. I thought hey I could do that blog and make a living off a handmade shop.
I started this blog around August 2010 and shared the link with family. I began by blogging about crafty things I was doing to fill my time up in San Antonio. I obsessed about reading tutorials on how to make my blog better, how to make money blogging, how to design my blogging and what not.
After I started getting in the swing of blogging I decided to open up my own shop. Blogging and running a handmade shop ran my life along with a full time job and finishing my last year in college. It was what I loved to do at the time.
I spent all day on the computer and trying to find ways I could grow my shop and blog. The truth about my shop was I wasn't very good at it. I wasn't producing a product that was 100% unique or 100% wanted. I struggled to succeed in this area. I constantly compared myself to others, beat myself up over other's success, took any comment about my shop personally and I wasn't happy. As much as I wanted to be a part of the handmade business I wasn't any good at it. It wasn't for me. Right now my shop is on vacation and I don't see it coming off vacation mode for a very long time (I'm not going to say ever because maybe someday I might change my mind). Right now though I like to admire those who are good at the handmade/indie business.
My blog right now has transitioned from a place where I needed to post daily, about certain things, mention certain brands to a blog where I blog when I want, about what I want. I love writing and that's why I will continue to blog. I hope this blog becomes a place where people can come read stories of humor, entertainment and maybe I'll teach you a thing or two.
