This morning I was up and outside clearing out my garden shed at 7:30 am! Usually I
never wake up early AND go outside to do anything. I’m generally too tired. But this morning I felt compelled to go out whilst the air was still cool and the sun hadn’t made it’s way fully ’round my yard. Things were going well until I stumbled a bit and fell over a sand bag and landed on a bike’s gears that felt rather sharp to my poor posterieur (butt). Fortunately, I’d cleared out enough things that nothing fell on top of me but my bottom hurt quite a bit! Let’s just say my garden shed isn’t quite tidy yet (to be fair the shed is fairly large).
Around 11 am I decided to do the laundry. I’ve been doing laundry all afternoon because I didn’t feel like going back out to the shed quite yet after hurting my butt. It’s feeling better now though so I’m thinking once the laundry is finished I’ll go back out and try to finish up the shed. Today has really been productive for me. Generally I don’t have the motivation to do a lot but I have already done more than I normally do, including cleaning the bathroom. I’ll have to give myself a gold star on the calendar! LOL (like teachers give small children for well done work).
I decided to go back to designing individual items on Zazzle rather than try “mass production”(up to 100 items) and have done mainly keychains and magnets so far. If I sell any I won’t make much but I am just trying to focus on making individual items that I like and don’t cost much for prospective buyers. I’m enjoying the small items like buttons, magnets and keychains because they are relatively quick to design on. The larger items and oddly shaped items take more time. Finding decent designs for t-shirts has been challenging for me. My best items are the cases for electronics, coffee mugs, mousepads and flip flops. The magnets and keychains are also pretty good.
Hope you’re all having a nice weekend.
