I could hardly believe it when I saw that I sold out of my Twin Healing Tree magnets again. (I just placed an order for more).
I do love to think of the magnets making their way around the country, finding so many new homes to be in. That’s something I couldn’t do with an original piece of art. Magnets, like any kind of print, are truly democratic.
I also sold out of my Bedlam Farm Yarn in just two weeks. I do still have one ball of yellow roving available so if you spin or do felting, you can have a look at it here.
And then I quickly sold the Bedlam Farm Donation Wool that Maggie donated. Later today I’ll write a check for the money it brought in and deposit it in the account for the Army of Good.
So thank you all!
Yesterday Jon wrote a really beautiful piece about me on his blog. In it, he wrote, “You don’t have to be rich or famous to be successful and live a meaningful life.”
I cried when I read that because I do feel successful, but I too often dismiss that feeling when I think that I don’t make a lot of money. And I don’t even really believe that the two are connected. But still like the body image beliefs I struggled with for so long (until Bellydancing taught me the truth about myself) I’ve heard the idea about money and success too many times to be immune to it.
So that will be the next thing I focus on changing.
I’m not sure how I’ll do it yet. But maybe knowing that I have enough and being honest with myself about what I really need will help.
My feelings of success come not so much from the demand for what I’m selling. But that I’m creating something that I believe in that speaks to people in a powerful way. And that gives my life meaning too.
