New year, new ideas, new plans - my head is spinning



I have about a million ideas zipping round in my head at any given moment. Some are realized quickly, others in due course, and some are scribbled in my many notebooks - to be implemented at a certain time and date. Then there are those that have been stewing in the background for years. One of these (and I may have mentioned it a couple of times before) is to have my own website. Yes, this is the same goal I had last year and the year before that, but 2009 was not so good for me health-wise, so I had to postpone it indefinitely. Well, today I can say that my health has improved. I feel I have enough energy now to tackle this fervent idea of mine, even though I know there will be days when I will not be able to get up out of bed.
Actually, I'm kind of glad I started my online selling venture on a small scale. It gave me time to hone my customer service skills, analyze markets and trends and to create an 'image'. I also had time to learn a number of important things from other, more experienced online sellers. Naturally, 'going it alone' presents different challenges. To take the pressure off  I have decided not to start from scratch, but to delegate the web-design to people who have the experience and superior know-how. That will free up some time for me to concentrate on what I do best, namely designing and sewing. Along with a new website I will be introducing a completely new bag line (more on that in future posts) exclusively for my website.

  1. Hi Duni! Glad you're feeling better, and I so know what you mean...I, at any given moment also have my head going with so many ideas running through it! Little scratch pieces of papers with sketches and ideas, magazines, I really need to make a point to organize all of it, as I believe most of my time is taken with 'getting-started'!

    Glad you'll be letting the pros handle your online stuffs, freeing more creativity-time for you!

    Happy Weekend Sweetie! xoxo

  14. First I have to say, I'm loving your photos! So brilliantly staged and the lighting is great. We're all glad you're feeling better for sure. You've had a long year with all of that stuff!

    I think delegating out the website to someone else would be wise. Then you can have it look just as you want without the headache and extra time it would take for you to figure it out yourself!
