I've been busy knitting away to create products for my Etsy store. I've almost filled a notebook with ideas, plans and to do lists.
I bought some beautiful wool yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills, and I'm knitting bright and colourful hats.
This is a work in progress shot of my first hat.
This week I'm really going to focus on finishing up my products, and hope to start listing them by May. The Big Hearted Business Conference that I attended in March, and reading posts like this by Katie from House of Humble make me realise how many people struggle with thoughts of failure and not being good enough to try for their dreams.
This afternoon I am going to a natural dying workshop, I'm really excited. I had made a tote bag as a sample/prototype, and although I was happy with it, it led to new ideas which require new skills. That's something that I have learnt while making and designing my product - the very act of creating leads to more inspiration and creativity.
