A New Beginning (Again…)

I’ve fallen off the blog wagon, for the third? Fourth? Time.

And I have no one to blame but myself.

I have this weird thing – I get incredibly obsessed and into a certain hobby or activity…it consumes my soul and it’s all I want to do, and then one day I just don’t do it. I stop thinking about it, stop doing it, and my pile of half finished ideas grows larger and larger.

But there are so many things I still want to do, and everyday lately I’ve wondered who I am. What do I want from this life? Where do I want to be?

So here’s my list so far:

1. I want to have a successful book blog

2. I want to open an Etsy shop

3. I want to go back to school and get a degree in Dental Hygiene

4. I want to be happy.

That fourth one is by far the most important, and I’ve realized that my string of hobbies and obsessions does not make me happy; it makes me feel broken.

So for now we’re going to focus on the first goal: and that’s where we are now.

Every Monday, I’ll be posting a book review. Some of them will be books from NetGalley/Edelweiss, others will be whatever I recently read. Just don’t expect a parade of new releases…

Thursday’s will be the random day. Some weeks it will be unboxings, or a monthly wrap up, or maybe something related to the latest book twitter drama. Who knows? I certainly don’t.

In a few months, I want to migrate to an actual self hosting blog, but it will depend on numbers/growth and where I see myself.

Next comes goal two:

My Etsy shop. I haven’t actually opened yet, or bought supplies, or finished my initial planning/prepping stage. Clearly I have a lot to do.

But my shop will feature:

A) digital downloads – for my planner enthusiasts. I have digital stickers, banner headings, washi tape, and more coming!

B) blankets and pillows. I love sewing. It’s the one hobby that I’ve stuck too over the years and I’ve finally decided to make it my “main hobby” (other than books). I’ll be selling baby blankets, throw blankets, lap blankets, and throw pillows! I have two distinct styles in my everyday life: either bright and colorful, or dark and gothic, and I want my designs to reflect that!

So I’ll be showcasing a range of blankets/pillows that are either super bright: think rainbows, unicorns, fields of flowers. Or super dark: black and purple, Victorian style, skulls, apothecary vibes.

I’m so excited to start creating and sewing again, and I hope some of you will stop by and pick up a few things 🙂

My third goal has a lot of behind the scenes drama attached to it…so moving on….

Being happy. I’m making steps in my personal life to be happy, and I’m hoping my efforts with these goals will help make my business life happy too.

So there you have it….

My new plan, my promise to actually POST THINGS, and other fun updates on my life. I can’t wait to continue this blogging journey and see where my future goes.
