Today's post is a bit random (the title says it all).
I have been flitting from one thing to another all week. There has been many a shopping trip for school/college stuff and with a quick mental tott I can tell you that I have spent around a million pounds.
Eldest started college with angst in his heart. He had me worrying (out of character) but returned with a confident bounce in his step. Phewf!
Middle son turned 14 today. We had a little birthday tea and then Mr Betty whisked him off to do some boy stuff involving fast cars and fast women.......not really fast women, just thought it sounded good.
Now all the boys are back at school :) I am feeling ready to focus and start getting back in to things.
I have started adding some bits to the kitchen.
White metal (garden) bench. Ikea bargain corner £20.00
Jane Foster art work from Next
I am keen to get my shelves up next week and paint my fireplace (colour yet to be decided).
I want pink.....Mr Betty says that it is my kitchen so I can choose the colour. I did detect a rather bad attitude in his voice however.
I had a bit of a Paperchase splurge.
Non essential items of course and this is only part of the splurge....
I have started to feel like I have reached a bit of a crisis point with the whole online selling thing and know that I need to have a good think about what I want to do/achieve.
I am very unbusiness like and seem to find it hard to maintain focus.
I will always have my fairs but I have temporarily closed my Folksy shop so I can start afresh, so to speak.
I have done a bit of tinkering with my kitty packaging and have tried making/presenting them in a different way.
This is merely a prototype and will, eventually, be in better quality packaging etc
I am thinking 'dress-up kitty' or something of that nature. I have started machine sewing them and I am thinking of ways to make them more saleable (starting to sound a bit businessy all of a sudden).
I am aware that I need to open an Etsy shop and that I should be more business like when it comes to promoting etc.
Any advice, and I really mean this, is extremely welcome.
I am selling off my 'old design' kitties at a reduced price at the Vintage Village this Sunday.
I will do a more official Vintage Village post tomorrow with a few snippets of stock and I will tell you about how exciting it is going to be. Let's just say.....party!!
Sorry for getting a bit serious tonight, too much thinking me thinks.
Tonight (it is just littlest and me) I am going to drink tea and watch TV and try to stop thinking.
Thanks for reading. X
