It’s been a week!
I debuted with my first batch of yarn mixes last Saturday, and after a week, I’m still reeling and giddy with excitement. I don’t think the excitement will ever die. I think it will forever stay with me, because just as I have been, and continue to be, passionate with the virtual career I started in 2006, my passion for crochet will live in my heart forever.
Every day is a new day. Every day brings a new level of enthusiasm and eagerness to create something, anything, with my yarns. They’re a delight to see, a pleasure to hold and a joy to work with.
Now that we’ve plunged into the business side of my hobby, the passion doubled. Maybe tripled even. And the hubby is with me on this all the way. Even the kids actively participate. They do their own mixes, help me with building up my catalog and cheer me up when I get frustrated.
My VA life can get so stressful at times, and now that we got into mixing specialty yarns for crocheters and string artists, winding up cakes also mean unwinding from being a VA. Creating the mixes takes me to another plane, where I don’t have to think about time zone differences, or phone consultations, or dead links, or planning a trip.
For me, it has become a lot more than just a hobby. It’s even something greater than making money.
Passion. Integrity. Commitment. Heart. The whole nine yards. Those are what Crafted Crafts is about.
So here I am. Unwinding while I write this post. And later, I’ll be up and winding again. Can’t wait to try the new combination that my firstborn gave me yesterday. Watch out for our Aladdin mix on March 30!
