the odd thing is i've had a dull migraine since last night that will not go away and i just keep trying to avoid acknowledging it even with the waves of nausea. i know i'm going to have to lay down soon because i'm getting to the point of no return. i just took my last imitrex and am trying not to panic about that! yes, one of my list items was make a doctor appointment. check, done! every time i move i have to find a new doctor just to get this prescription...i wish i could get a lifetime supply.
now that you know my migraine history (had them since the age of 5 by the way...not fun) i will move onto to the important stuff. CRAFTINESS!! i disappoint myself often in my lack of crafty motivation when i kill it at my day job. somehow i struggle with focusing on wearing all the hats of promotion, creation, scheduler, etc. but it's NEVER gonna happen if i don't so i need to kick my own ass and like Nike says- JUST DO IT!! laying in bed the nights before i work (2 days a week) and thinking about how much i loathe a certain authority figure lit that fire in me today. i have a chance here. a fork in the road if you will. and i need to freaking seize the day.
i am already planning a relaunch of my biz by having a new name and getting a new logo for all my promotional materials. i have checked out a bit of the local craft scene. i don't have my official picture set up or my desktop with all my good pics and i was letting that hold me back from applying to shows. NOT TODAY. i decided to apply to 2 shows with my not so perfect pictures today. results are to be continued! then i sent some of my not so official pictures with a not very official price list to a local shop here in new orleans. and BAM, i got a response within the hour to see the samples in person. i did a happy dance that included fist pumps, i'm not gonna lie. i also did a running sock slide on the hardwood floor. that for some odd reason is one of my regular moves i've done since having hardwoods and it just never gets old....i think it's just one of those things that my mother never wanted me to do (not at our house, we had shag carpet) because it was kinda like running with scissors. knock on wood, i haven't fallen yet. i hope i didn't just jinx myself!!
i'm not saying this shop will love my stuff or place a very large order or any order at all. nothing is guaranteed but it's the first step and that's what i needed to do today. today motivation made an appearance and i kissed it on the mouth.
i also got some holiday ornaments made that i will take pics off when i get the chance. i am in the middle of sweat-shopping so i better get back to it. i just needed to share!
p.s. this is my running power song and i feel like it fits for crafty motivation as well.
