those of you who've been around for a bit know that i'm also a self-taught jewelry designer.
i've had an etsy shop - and my own online shop - for a few years now.
sales have been slow as of late and i can blame myself in part.....little to no promotion doesn't generate income.
i'm a bit sad to say that i'll be letting go of that part of my life.
not because of the sales - though that is a valid reason.
but because i think it's time to let it go.
i've wrestled with this decision for quite a while now.
i question myself...........am i giving up? or am i letting go?
there is a difference, at least in my mind
you may notice that i said i'm "a BIT sad"
but also there is a bit of relief.
i thought i would share today my specific reasons for this decision. i thought it would make me feel better
but as i type, i find that i don't need to
suffice it to say, i believe it's just time.
now, i can't say i'm giving it up entirely. custom orders will still be accepted
i'm sure i'll still craft a piece or two for myself *grin*
i'm not (yet) giving up my website
but jewelry will no longer be my focus
i had thought i was on the path God had chosen for me.
i'm sure that i was..........for a season
i think that season is over. i've learned, i've grown.....perhaps that was the sole purpose
but i have no doubt that, if i'm mistaken, God will make it abundantly clear :-)
for now, i'm exploring other talents He has given me
talents that have surfaced recently
talents that may grow or change..........
or may even become stagnant. i don't know.
it's my desire to walk in faith and follow HIS path
so, if at times it may seem i'm a bit.............scattered??
give me some grace - i'm just trying to hear what God's saying ;-)
