I have been working on creating Mama Jeans and the holidays seemed to keep me busy what with family and fairs and such and then January came along.  I cleaned the studio organized fabrics worked on a few things and tried to keep moving forward.  But somewhere along this path I hit a bit of a roadblock.  I think the reality of doing this is a bit scary and I came face to face with it.  Scheduling my time and having a goal sounds simple but reality is,  it's a lot harder than it looks.  I am trying to focus on a direction but I don't know which way I want to go yet. Well, not really.  When I started, I thought I wanted to build clothes for people of size.  It's been a nightmare trying to find things over the years that were pretty and bright and fit and so I created all my own clothes and figured I'm not alone in wanting them.  Then I started quilting and making things for people that weren't clothes and I enjoy it a great deal, but it seems like I should try to focus a bit more.  I like creating but will people buy?  I just know that I really want to find a way to make this work.  I want to be able to make enough money to make my part of the living expenses and support my business, and I don't think that is to much to ask, so on I go. 
I have the paper work for joining the Mercy Corp program on starting a small business and I need to get it turned in or get the paperwork for the other organization and start working with them.  I think it would help to have to create a mission statement and a business plan.  It will keep me focused on the goal.  Be happy, create from the heart, laugh often, love more and make a beautiful space to occupy in the universe.   Give others beautiful things to help make their space in the universe unique and special for them.  Did I mention that getting a heart on Etsy makes me smile every time?  It's like finding money in your purse when you didn't know it was there.  It's people saying hey, I really like what you do and I support you. It was one of the greatest inventions that the Etsy people came up with when they created their amazing company.  Hearts, they aren't just for Valentines.
