Anyway, because I have this rather "no longer manageable" urge to own a piece of her work, I've been thinking about my word for the year. Focus. So far, it's been going pretty good. I do find myself repeating that word as needed throughout the day. Sometimes, it has to be aloud in order for me to "hear" it!
And now I have a very clear reason for staying focused - not that I didn't before - but this time it's personal. Do you remember as a kid earning an allowance and thinking about (or actually "visualizing" about) what you were saving up for? Well this is my allowance money, so to speak. I began thinking about my Etsy shop, and other markets like 1000 Markets, Trunkt - the list seems to be growing these days for sure. But, I thought I'd try something new and right at home in my Etsy shop. A tutorial. And a bead frame. I've been making this style necklace for a while now and thought maybe there are others who'd like to learn. So, staying focused (this was really a test to see if I could stay focused that long!) I began the process. I took many photos, edited, re-edited (several, o.k. many times) and so forth and finally have my new tutorial. It's called (what else?) "How to Make and Frame a Polymer Clay Pendant".
So, I now have a new goal. This is my personal challenge. One week . . . enough "allowance" money so I can splurge. I'm staying focused and I'm stickin to it. Triz - get those fingers ready! ;o)
