Intentionally Engaging in Three Things Thursday: Blogging, Working, & Sewing
Blogging, Working, & Sewing!
Since I’m easing back into my regular blogging schedule while catching up on other obligations, I skipped yesterday, which would have been my “Women with Intention” Wednesday.
And now it’s Thursday again – so that means I’ll be telling you about three things out of many that I will INTENTIONALLY be doing today.
… … …
Today I am endeavoring to get back on track with many things, following my holiday “break” and other events. Blogging is one of those things, since I really enjoy this form of creative writing and connecting with those of you who read and follow my blogs.
I belong to numerous blogging groups on Facebook, too, and one of the benefits of that is connecting with fellow bloggers by visiting and commenting on their blogs. It’s wonderful to virtually meet so many talented bloggers with amazing blogs! I have bookmarked many of them for future visits and reference.
Another thing I *REALLY* need and want to do this year is interact with those of you who take the time to leave comments. I really appreciate when you not only read, but also leave comments for me, and I apologize for NOT responding!
Most everybody has to do it, right? In one way or another, whether commuting to a job somewhere or working from home, we all usually have to work. I include moms at home raising kids in this category, as well, because I’ve been there and done that, and I know first hand it IS work!
In my case now, as an almost 60-year-old woman … I am beginning my 11th year of working from home as a freelance writer and educational consultant. The freelance life is challenging, since work and income ebbs and flows, but at this time, I do have a few clients and various types of work going on. This includes assessment writing, course content editing, academic blog writing, and literary lesson plan writing.
My favorite “therapeutic” activity is sewing and quilting! I’m actually still working on finishing up belated Christmas gifts and other items. I currently have pillows and quilts in progress.
One of my specialties in my K-Lee’s Kreations business is adding imprinted photos to various items, such as these:
The majority of my products, primarily through my Etsy shop, are customized items and the pictured products are samples from previous orders.
However, this year I am working on a plan to add “ready to buy” items to hopefully branch out and attract more customers. These items might include items such as the following…
Double-sided baby blankets…
Quilts in various sizes, designs, and colors…
Pillows in various sizes, designs, and colors…
… and lots of other items!
So stay tuned if you’re a fan of handmade items, especially if you like to support those of us who have Etsy shops and/or our own business sites to sell our items (working on my new site now, right here on WordPress!)
