I've been doing some soul searching lately. No, not really, just some realistic thinking is more like it. While I love the crafting community I have never felt super inspired by selling my crafts. I'm more of a "look what I made you" type of girl. I never wanted to give up though because again, I loved being in the crafting community. I finally realized that even if I don't sell I still will be part of it. My involvement with IndieSac gives me just what I need. I like planning events, I like teaching people how to make things, I like helping others sell their amazing crafts. That is satisfying for me.
So, I have finally come to the conclusion that I am done selling. I might start it up again, but right now getting stuff made to sell just feels like too much pressure. Funny thing, since I have decided this I have felt more creative than ever. I'm doing some paintings for Christmas gifts, finding items I want to knit (that are not just scarfettes) and much more.
I'm going to keep the Bouton Blue Etsy store, but it might remain empty unless I have a change of heart. Thanks to all of you that have been so supportive and purchased items from me. If you decide you want something I'm definitely open for commission items!
