Thinking Positive and Moving On

I am back and my mind is racing with ideas!

Some of you might have noticed that I had gone on a little hiatus from this blog over the past couple of weeks. There has been some personal issues that I had to deal with which I just didn't really feel like broadcasting on here. Through the help of some great friends, I have worked through my issues and am now thinking much clearer and trying to promise myself to look towards the positive in all situations! Life's too short to be down on yourself right?

Along with these personal issues, I've been having trouble figuring out where this blog should lead in 2010 considering my new goals and aspirations. I don't want to lose readership by any means, however I don't think I should ever be struggling about what I should be writing about - all while thinking if readers would like it. I had promised myself when I started this blog that I would just write about whatever I felt like at any given day. No pressure. So this year, expect to see many more pictures of cupcakes, posts about etsy, and really anything else I can think of. ;)

Now that I am in a more positive frame of mind, I have decided that it is the perfect time for me to start moving forward and acting on all of my ideas that I have for my potential Etsy store.

...I also just realized, that I've mentioned Etsy a few times here without explaining it. And maybe not everyone knows what Etsy is. So for those of you who are finding yourself stuck with this look of confusion on your face, Etsy is an online world where people buy and sell all things homemade. If you've never ventured over, I definitely recommend it.

Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yes. Positive thinking and moving forward with an Etsy store! I've been wanting to open up my own store for a while now and ideas have been flowing constantly. I just haven't really gotten myself to the point where I was ready to start acting on these ideas and getting things done! I mean, I didn't want to open it up and only have 1 or 2 items to sell. I wanted the unveiling to be amazing with several different lines of things to sell! After some thinking though, I realized that some times my ideas are a little too large for this particular point in time. I'm certainly not abandoning my ultimate goal AT ALL. On the contrary!

I have decided that this weekend, I am going to work on beginning to attain this ultimate goal. I've got to start somewhere right? So why not start small? I've begun to make ceramic coasters which I think are pretty darn cute! They're stylish, and they'd make an amazing gift for someone! I considered posting pictures, but I want the Etsy store to be a surprise for everyone. I'm pretty proud of what I've accomplished so far, and don't want to share it until I know it's 100% ready. So, if all goes as planned, I should hopefully have several sets finished on the weekend and get this thing started!

Only have one tiny issue that I'm trying to work out right now.... I need a name for my store! I'm so bad at choosing names for things! You'd have no idea how long it took me to even think of "Tidbits From My Mind". Do any of you have suggestions??? I'm 100% serious here!

I'm also behind on commenting - having a bit of a rough personal time myself. Long story, I haven't and don't plan on blogging about it...

So on to your Etsy store name - I'm totally not creative (I know, I suck right?) LOL. What kind of products do you plan to offer? I hope cupcakes LOL!!
