Today I made a couple of online purchases. One reason I believe I felt compelled to do so today is because I was supposed to go out of town today and just didn't have the strength nor will power to do so, plus my dad's in the hospital as of today. The other reason is because I really don't like shopping that much and I get disappointed when I go to craft stores and the supply is limited. For instance, they don't have the one color I'm looking for. That pushes me more to shop online.
So first I made a purchase from justbehappy.etsy.com's shop. I purchased 3 neckwarmers. The mustard yellow one for me, the mink brown for my mom, and the other one perhaps for a gift. My mom is adament that keeping her neck covered, especially when she feels cold drafts will keep her well, better. I think she'll really like this neckwarmer.
The other online purchase I made today was through Joann.com. They were having a sale on yarn and also offering free shipping for a $25 purchase, so thereagain, I decided to stake my mark. I didn't go overboard, but I did purchase what I felt was absolutely necessary. I purchased some Vanna Baby yarn for the next poncho and a couple of others for some in the future. The rest of the yarn I purchased was 100% cotton. I'm thinking of making some dish cloth sets.
Yesterday I planned on paper a way to sell some signature items, like the poncho and some others that I probably like enough to make in abundance. One of my coworkers told me about a lady who sold the huge flags on the weekends and made enough money to buy a beach house. All I can say is, "WOW!" Let me be clear: I do not have an interest in such. I'm just excited to be able to make something that I enjoy that others can enjoy as well. And by the grace of God, I will be able to do it. That's why I needed to purchase the right kinds of yarn. :-)
