I have been doing some heavy soul-searching over the past few weeks and have made some important decisions. Some of these are simple and you won’t notice much but others are bigger and I hope you will be OK.
First of, I will be putting more effort into growing my business. Or should I say businesses. Starting on Monday, I will be spending time everyday working on my sewing. I currently make tote bags, make up kits, wrist key chains and kid’s activity bags. I am researching how to make clothes and would like to expand into that but that will be far, far in the future. Soon you will see a page on this site where you see how I plan and construct the items that I make and even a place to order them. Please let me know if you have any ideas of things you would like me to make and I will certainly look into any ideas.
The next area that I want to work on is my Officiating business. I want to help people in good times, weddings, baptisms, etc. I also want to be there when people are at their worst such as funerals. I have gotten a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious studies and would like to go back to school and get a counselors degree or something more in the chaplaincy. There are so many programs out there and I want to make sure that I pick the correct one that will allow me to help as many people as possible.
One area that I have gained interest in lately is how to cook naturally and get my family off so many processed foods. I don’t have a spot for a garden so I obviously cannot go totally off the grid, I have to rely on grocery stores. Even with that, you can still eat a diet mostly free of processed foods and chemicals. I have been pouring through cookbooks and web pages looking for recipes for all my family’s favorites. I know some people may not have the time to cook totally from scratch so I am researching how to do fast-scratch cooking. Not only am I looking for fast but I want cheap too. I hate spending more money that necessary and want to show other people some of my tricks to save money on food.
I will be reworking this site over the next week or so adding a scheduling component as well as a store front. I will expand my presence on social media like Instagram, Periscope and possibly YouTube. In the beginning you will notice that my videos will not be polished, professional products. I am still learning and will make mistakes. I also cannot afford to buy professional grade equipment so for the time being I will be using the cameras and such that I already have and will be saving to buy more and better equipment.
I will continue this blog and hope to expand into some other topics of conversation. I do not get many comments on my posts and I am not exactly sure why. I want all of your thoughts good or bad. I want to know what you think. I want your ideas. I want your questions.
Please come with me on the journey I am about to take. That WE are about to take. I think this is going to be fun…
