What a Week!

So, of course, this week was all about catching up on everything that didn't get done during the "Snowmaggedon".  Whew, I'm tired and think I need another chance at being trapped in with snow :-)

My exciting news for the week was that I've been invited to be a guest speaker on a craft blog talk radio show!  I'm in the process of picking a topic and date to be on the show and will provide all the details when they are firmed up.

I've hit 101 tips on the Crochet Guru website, yippee (though I'm not sure if it happened within the self-imposed deadline or not, but whatever).  Now, I need to concentrate though on adding more tips that can be part of the 101 tips booklet I want to put together.  Please, please leave me any questions or suggestions you might have for tips you'd like to see in the book.

Which brings me to Today's Thought, which I'm going to do a little differently today.  I was talking with an amazing woman last night.  She's a crafter and a reiki specialist (but that's for another post).  She wants to start her own business but just hasn't done it.  I think we all struggle with getting started on projects that we know we want to do, but just can't seem to get done.  I think the key is to set an Action Item for yourself.  Just pick one small piece or step in the project to do, putting all the other steps and obstacles out of your mind for now.  For example, I have not worked on Mom's Vest for 2 weeks :-(.  My action item for this weekend is to rework the back panel.  If I do more, great, but all I'm asking of myself is to just get done the back portion -- it's an achievable step for which I know what I need to do.  By telling you all about it (and promising to report back on my progress), I'm hopefully setting up support yet accountability with you all.  That's it, hope this tidbit helps you start something you've been wanting to do, but have not yet started!
