2019 is going to be a year for change. I’m making some changes in my crafting life. I’ve stopped being a consultant for Close to My Heart. They are a wonderful company but I just started feeling overwhelmed by all the products and collecting. I am tired of products “expiring” before I had a chance to promote them. I was paying at least $300 per quarter to maintain the relationship and finding I was way to busy with life to use all the things I was buying. I also have so many stamp sets that I can’t possibly add more. I am moving in a different direction. I’m getting back to the basics…what got me into this crafting journey in the first place…scrapbooking. I will be selling off or donating a ridiculous amount of tools, paper, stamps, etc. to lighten my load in 2019. I encourage all of you to watch the YouTube video below. Lindsay, also known as the Frugal Crafter, is a mainstay in the crafting world for me and she totally captured how I was feeling.
I have many new goals in the new year and one is capturing more of my life in photos (with me in the photos!) and turning them into fun scrapbook pages. I’ll still make the homemade birthday and holiday cards but my focus is going to shift back to my original crafting heart. I hope you will enjoy my new journey here at Tradefish Designs. To all of you out there, have a wonderful new year and make it full of whatever brings you joy!
