Where to begin?
I am lost.
I have not made anything in a few weeks and I am pretty sure the holidays and the cold weather here in NY are to blame for my slump. That and the bad cold I had for New Year's add in self doubt and a teething 18 month old and you can probably see why I am surrounded by question marks.
I have decided to start a new journey in 2011- 52 Weeks of Blogging Your Passion by Tara Gentile of Scoutie Girl.
I first read about 52 Weeks on Brandi Girl Blog and wanted to do this myself. I desided the best time to start would be January 1st so I bought the e-book for an affordable $15 and decided to jump right in.
The first task was to write a mission statement for your blog and to share it with your readers. I have no idea why I was paralyzed with self doubt and fear to do this task and almost gave up before I even started. I had to push through. It took 7 days but I finally wrote a mission statement I am satisfied with. It may change or evolve but for this time, this place I am in it is good and I am happy.
The purpose of my blog For My Sweet Daughter is to capture the fleeting moments.
To share with others my story, the things that make me happy, inspire me and make me who I am.
To connect with artists and those who love and appreciate handmade items
and to share my handmade jewelry, components and other items with the artisan community.
There it is and it was not an easy thing to write so my brain is mush. I did finally make a bracelet today though so maybe I am starting to break out. I was inspired by the snow that fell today and a piece from Nancy Schindler of RoundRabbitExtra. As soon as I can I will take pictures and share.
