|I made these paper flowers for a friend at work and her wedding. They turned out well.|
This leads me into another thought: is this something that I can do for a living? People always talk about "do what you love and the money will follow." I'm not really that sure. At this time, I am responsible for the maintenance of a family of five. Brian's salary mostly goes towards child support. Mine goes towards everything else. I always wonder what I would need to be able to work from home, but I am so scatter-brained that I can't focus on what I need to do. Blah. Then, getting my husband on board is another thing altogether. :)
I wonder what I'm supposed to be doing here in this life and if I'm doing enough. I just don't want to go back to Heaven (yes, I'm assuming the best) and have God tell me "You could have done that if only you'd been _____." Whatever _______ is.
So, this year, I want to work on my Big Idea and expand it. With the success of the basic tutorial and the alphabet folding tutorial, I want to branch out into other patterns. I don't know if it will work, but I'm going to hope for the best. I will continue doing the free ones every month because not everyone will be able to buy the patterns, and I like sharing what I do with others. Martha says to share and teach freely because it does a lot of good. Yay Martha!
Wish me luck.
