One thing I'm trying to do this year is use up my stash and make more things. I decided at the beginning of the year to reopen my old Madeit shop - Jembellish as a place to put what I make.
I've been a bit slow with this so far - and only have 12 items listed in my shop. I love making things, but am less enthusiastic about the selling process, which is another thing on my list for this year to learn about and improve on!
So far, I'm building up my store of gifts for birthday parties that my girls get invited to, and later in the year I do plan to have a market stall to sell my things.
For now, I'll keep on chipping away at my stash and adding to my handmade collection - lots of upcycled jeans in there as that's my favourite thing to work with!
I like making things like these Pyramid pouches too - as they allow me to use up smaller pieces of cute fabric I've saved.
Like this froggy one..
And this oh so cute fairy fabric!
Once I build up my stock some more, I really should make an effort to market and sell these things.
It's out of my comfort zone to do that - which probably means it's something I should focus on! Time to move that to the top of my to do list I think!
What's your weakness - are you making the effort to work on it?
I like this quote too - very appropriate!
