I think I can!

I've been thinking.... my husband is always ragging on me for starting new tasks and never finishing them. I'm always thinking of new business ventures and what I could make and so on. But I realized that it wasn't that I was just starting new things and leaving them unfinished, I was just testing myself to see if I could do it. I like to think up new things and challenge myself to do it. I think the photography thing has lasted quite a long time but I just never get into it fully like I want to because I don't have the time. I'm still just learning honestly. But I do know that I'm just as good as some people already out there charging an arm and a leg. It's fun to me and I think that is why I continue to still do it. It's a passion for me.

Some of the other tasks that I've started are things like making tutus. I made my first to see if I could do it and have made only one other and that was for a birthday present. I went out a spent a lil money when the tulle was on sale and I think if you can make them for gifts and them look good and you save money at the same time then you're doing good. I'd like to be able to create and sew more things to save money and develop a cute little style for my daughter but I'm just not a seamstress, but I want to be. Maybe my wonderful aunt will teach me some of what she knows. She honestly could make a living at it and I'd like to be able to do something like that too. Make cute trendy clothes and products and sell them online. I may make that my next task. Right now it's gardening. Our neighbor gave us some flower bulbs that he pulled from his own house and had a ton of lillies. I've never had a green thumb so I thought I'd take a crack at it and got my hoe and dug up the weeds and grass and made me a little flower bed to see if they would even stay alive or bloom later. I bought some morning glory and sweet pea seeds at Wal-mart last night and intend to plant them once the continuous rain stops. I also have had some vials of wild flower seeds for some time that I've been wanting to do some thing with. Let's see how it turns out.

You see it's not that I'm going overboard with new tasks and leaving them unfinished, I just want to be able to see if I can even do it. I've said I don't know how to do certain things for so long that I want that to change. I'm giving it a-go!

I'm just like you, too! Gardening is on my list of things to try but we don't have the money for that right now (we have other work on the house to do first). I can't wait to see your efforts!

Hey, at least you can get started on things. I don't even have half the energy to start things most of the time. I'm suprised going to the gym has lasted as long as it has. Oh Well!!!
