I’ve been a bit Obsessive!

So lately I have been obsessed. I mean really indulging in trying to get my Etsy Store up off the ground and in the process taking every little bit of free time I have to sew. I mean every bit of free time. And in the process I have not been enjoying the process. Hunky Hubs pointed out that he wanted me to do it for fun. And if he’s not panicked by our financial situation, why should I be right? I have always been good with money since having a parent who was always in a lot of debt. So I chose to not follow in the same footsteps and I have what is considered good debt. Student loans and car payments are good debts in my book, or Home Loans..all good debts. Credit Card debt…bad debt. Anyway….we recently bought a bedroom set and well you know how much those cost right? We are very very happy with our purchase, but its still something that I feel should be paid off before using my card again…and well there’s that whole Christmas thing coming up.

Anyway, Hunky Hubs told me he didn’t want me stressing out and to just do it for fun. So I’m trying to do that.  And in fact I did not spend my lunch hour, aka nap time sitting in front of the sewing machine today. I took a break. But it doesn’t mean I wont be back at it soon….but only as long as I enjoy it. I think if I we really need the income, it should come from watching another child in my home because its more consistent than staring at the unsold items on my Etsy shop page.

At any rate…life has slapped me in the face once again and has told me to get a grip on reality and just enjoy my family. Enjoy my little one and the other little ones and not stress. History proves that when I stress I get sick. I get physically ill for weeks at a time and I don’t want that happening this time.

So I’m sitting here with a cup of coffee and writing this from a calmer perspective. My Etsy Shop is for fun!! Just fun. I hope you enjoy the items I’ve listed, but if not I encourage you to support work at home moms or other Etsy Shop Owners because really there are some cool things you can find and I just might do all my Christmas shopping this year via Etsy.

  1. I’m a little late getting here, but I’m following you back from Surfin’ Saturday.

    I totally understand what you mean about obsessing over something. I go in bursts where I’ll sell on eBay for a bit. It’s not like staring at the page and checking in on it obsessively is going to sell anything. I have to tell myself that. Again and again.

    Good luck on the storefront, and on taking it easy.

  2. Definitely make sure you enjoy it 🙂

    I feel the same way about debt. Only the good kind is welcomed! But, sometimes, we just need that hubby to come in and make everything right <3

  3. It can be very easy to get stressed and caught up with things. Blogging alone can do that. We enjoy these things, but then they can take up a lot of our time. Guilt sets in and then reality does. I am glad you are writing from a calmer perspective. Family is first and then a little “you” time. I will check out your Etsy shop. I hope all is well!

  7. I love what you have said.. Hub is right you should enjoy what you do if not do take a break. Congratulations about the good debts not many people these days can say that.

  8. I joined Etsy, and added a couple of “favorites” but still don’t quite understand – are these mostly homemade products for sale?
    Stress is a killer & it can reflect on others in your household, bringing them down! Us moms are suppose to make everything feel better. I have learned to give it all to God! The devil is working overtime & wants to hurt the family unit! He knows his time is short!! Hang in there & pray! Teach your children about God!! They will need him ALL of their lives!! ????
