I have done it!

A sense of achievement is a wonderful feeling, and I have it right now.  I launched my Etsy shop (Made In North Melbourne) this week.  My original intention was to wait until I had five items before launching the shop, but I had also set myself a go live target of the 30th June.  I achieved neither and have gone ahead anyway!  I am calling it a soft launch.  The reality is that I have another three items completed, that just need the final finishing of sewing threads in, so in a short while there will be more stock. The pieces I have started with are simple, but already my creative ideas are starting to flow; I scribbled a design on paper this morning, and without the simple that would not happen.

I am very proud of myself.  Towards the end of last year this was just an imagining, which I didn’t let go, and now it is real.  Especially now that I am back to full time work.  Have I said how much I miss my non-working Fridays and spending the day with my little girl – three weeks and counting every one of them.  In honour of my daughter the first item is a toddler girl’s scarf.  And perhaps with both effort and luck, who knows I may get more than just my Friday’s back!
