But seriously


I don't know what has set me into a tailspin now. Okay, I do. My friend Heather, whom I love dearly, has just been told that she can start the RN program in January. And here I sit and wait! I wait for people that don't know me to decide my fate. I can't help but feel down. I left my job to go back to school full-time and I put my family's welfare on the line with this risk. Then I didn't get into UW-Parkside for this Fall so here is sit.

I have also been considering canceling my SU demonstratorship as I am the one supporting it. I only have three people that come to my card classes. I know it takes time, but the economy is so bad right now how can I keep it up? Last weekend I went to a craft fair with about 300 cards and sold maybe ten of them. That's money sitting there doing nothing. I have just been considering chucking it all and giving up. Just sell it all (the Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Spellbinders) and be done with this hobby that is addicting and costs a lot of money. I am torn as to what I should do.

On the up side I have lost 43 pounds since the second week in august of 2010. I feel better physically and I am determined to make all the extra weight go away and STAY AWAY! Not the greatest picture of me, but you can see how the pants that once fit me tightly are loose and my shirt feels like a maternity shirt. I have a lot to think about and the kids are up early so I have to go. Have a great day! - Heidi

    Hi Heidi,
    I just came upon your blog by searching card idea and saw your post, I know it's old but wanted to comment. I just wanted to know how things are going for you, did you get into nursing, your weight loss and your Stampin up business. I read your post and related to it in a big way. I hope things are going better for you and that you haven't given up on your hobby. For me scrappin is my therapy, yes I would like to sell more cards on etsy and artfire, but can't seem to get any business on those sites for whatever reason. Most of my sales come from my co-workers believe it or not. I recently got into the scrapping world two years ago and I just love it, like i said it is my therapy. I even have a dedicate room all to myself which I love. I will be becomin a SU demostrator at the end of the month to take advantage of the $99 sale and I am looking forward to it but hesistant that I will be able to make a side business out of it. Time will tell. I would love to correspond with you and I have a youtube channel Scrapaholichere so if you would like to be friends, please contact me on youtube. I love youtube, I have learned so much and the ladies are awesome, I have made some really wonderful friends on youtube. Well I just wanted to say hi and let you know you are not alone and some of us feel the way you do, but don't give up, live your dream and be happy. Take care. Lore
