The dream of making a living doing what one loves, that is, and not having to work for someone else doing some soul-destroyingly dull and tedious job.
I am very much a dreamer, thinking up new and glorious ways of being able to make a living from the comfort of my own home, which doesn’t involve me having to actually go out and get a job. Now, I’ve never been a careerist; I still don’t know what I want to do “when I grow up”, apart from, that is, do what I want to do and enjoy my life, and not need an alarm clock to wake me up every morning. But then, don’t we all?
Anyway, my current shiny plans for fame and fortune include lots of cross-stitch and others of my hobbies, and I’m beginning to make the attempt to Take Them Seriously. Not as hobbies. But as actual, possible, money-making ventures.
I’m still in the researching stage, which I figure will take the next few months or so, but really, the biggest hurdle (for me, anyway) is to actually do something about these dreams, and not just dream them.
Now, because I don’t want to have to start afresh with a new blog – to keep the branding all the same and etc. – I’m going to be playing around with themes and stuff on this blog, now that I have finally worked out why I started it in the first place. (I’ll admit, this was another of those spur-of-the-moment whims.) But I think I’m finally finding my feet on it properly, and I don’t want to give that up, but equally, I feel the need for a change. Bear with me while I have a little play, but have no fear: I’ll still be here, stitching and baking away!
