Okay before anyone says anything, I know how corny and lame the title of this post is!! The last post I made, Inactive Activity, was a bit of venting. I was extremely frustrated and really needed to get my blah feelings out there. After writing it, and thinking about things, I am working on changing my attitude. Yes, I feel like I'm never an active participant, and that I'm a;ways in the background and forgettable. And while i do still feel like that, I am working on fixing that. Taking it as the fact that yes, I am underestimated, but that can be a good thing! No one expects me, so I can slide on by and take them by surprise. I am thinking more of that approach with two things: Roller Derby and my Etsy shop.
For roller derby, I haven't been able to make it to any practices in the past month. Noted. But I have still been working on things at my house. I have been wearing my skates just about all of the time and skating around while I'm doing chores and cooking. I really need to find a pair of outdoor wheels so that I can skate outside. Its been so nice out the past few days (with the exception of today, which is apparently starting winter all over again), being outside has felt amazing! Outdoor skating would really help me with my stability (which I've said is basically non existent, lol) until I'm able to get back on the track again.
With my Etsy shop, I have been doing moderate marketing between here at my blog and on social media. While i plan on continuing with marketing about the same, I am starting to work furiously to push out more items. And a bigger variety of products. I have a lot of clay items that I have worked on here and there, and some of them I have listed here, but I need to list the remaining. I also only have a little bit of clay left, so I will be using all of that up so I can move on to the next item. I also have some resin pieces that I have casted here and there that are sanded and ready to be painted, but I haven't gotten to them. After the clay, I plan on spending just a little bit of time finishing up these pieces so I can list them all. I also will be working on more sewing and screen printed items. After preparing for last years Geekfest and then not being able to participate (darn broken leg!), I realized that I did NOT have nearly enough inventory for the 3 day convention. I would like to fill an entire jumbo plastic bin with merchandise.
I am trying to "Think Like a Winner", as corny as that sounds. Giving myself daily affirmations of being successful. I WILL DO THIS!!
Yes, that is a Freddy Mercury meme. I love Freddy Mercury, in case you were curious!
