This is just a little update blog. For anyone wondering how the heck I went from writing about my rollercoaster life to making Upper Peninsula stuff to sell. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure. I know that it started with pictures. I took some really neat photos & then decided to put the into the shape of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.. and from there my ideas ran like crazy. So I decided to do something with all the thought bubbles that were rapidly, metaphorically appearing over my head. I turned my ideas into product. And here I am. Blogger, now crafter (I guess that's what they call what I'm doing). I love it. I'm addicted. I ordered a new printer, a cutting machine, & my husband got us a new fancy camera.
We are learning as we go how to operate everything. There has been much trial & error, but I'm in love with it. I see so much potential & the list of things that I can do is growing fast. We aren't solely sticking to U.P. related images/products, but also customization of pretty much anything from glass etching, stenciling, to adding lettering or pictures on anything! We plan to incorporate so much more, but with due time of course. I don't want to overwhelm myself.
Obviously, money is always a factor. I only work part time, thus I have much free time during the week. I've figured out how to utilize my extra time. The machinery & supplies we have purchased have not been cheap, but I feel we can turn my hobby into an o.k. business. I feel, we can make our money back & turn it into a small income with time, however. Also, if you've noticed I've added ads to my blog, that's another way to add income to my life, though the ads do not really earn much money at all, a few cents per click.
I enjoy blogging very, very much & will continue. I will write blogs as the ideas come to me. I'm also very, very much enjoying this new endeavor.. I feel my free time is no longer wasted & filled with purpose.. I fricking love it! So there you have it.. A little bit of why & what I'm doing.
Blogging continues, but so does product creation :)
