Hi! I just wanted to start by saying – Sorry for the lack of posts recently! With the kids on school holidays, hubby on holidays, Doorstop orders and market prep, I’ve been a bit lacking in the ‘blogging world’ recently! But I knew you’d understand!
So over these school holidays, we’ve been trying to get out and about and do things with the kids, that involves being inside as much as possible, aircon blowing and staying out of the 40deg + temps that we’ve been getting! (Absolutely disgusting weather! Bring back winter!)
Anyway, today we went out and caught up with some friends for bowling and dinner.
Literally 5 minutes before heading out I decided that I needed a necklace to match my dress. Lucky for me I have a huge amount of bead supplies that I sell on my Ebay store – so I quickly through this little necklace together.
Funny thing though. When I went into my craft cupboard, I immediately reached for the ‘seconds‘ stock. See, when I sell my beads (and other supplies) I try to only send out the best, so I end up with a bag of slightly imperfect seconds.
I didn’t really think about it much at the time – as we needed to rush out the door – but since getting home I’ve been a bit cross at myself. Why is it that every time I make something for me, it’s never ‘the best’? If I intentionally make something for me (ie this necklace) then I use the supplies that aren’t good enough to sell. And its the same with the doorstops that I have. They all either have faults in the fabric / aren’t sitting correctly or there is something wrong with them!
I suppose it makes sense in a way. I’m using what I cant sell, therefore leaving more to sell, and less waste. But aren’t I good enough for the best? I think I am. I think next time I make myself something, I am going to use my ‘good stuff’. Why not!
Thanks for stopping by!
