I guess you can say I’ve become a casual knitter and less of a serious one. My hands start to swell more and my DE is out of control so I can’t really touch too many things. I found out through recent testing that I’m allergic to nickel, which is in stainless steel and pretty much most metal things like silver, white gold, 14k gold, steel. The preservative allergy I saw coming, this was a bit more blindsiding. It’s rather forced my anxiety and depression into an undue state of not sleeping, not accomplishing things, not knowing what to do, with an ever cycling thought pattern of ‘what next, what now?’
To answer that question short and simply: LuLaRoe.
I’m queuing to become a consultant and I am ready to have a job where I pick my hours, push myself outside of my comfort zone and meet new people, get to go new places and have fun and amazing opportunities I wouldn’t otherwise have stuck in my home.
So, for those that are curious I will link my fb page and my group info is on there to join.
I am focusing on making 2017 a positive, successful, and more interactive outside of my comfort zone year. I have set goals and made lists- neither of the like I typically do normally. So to find my positivity and happiness again, I’m starting anew. I’m excited and terrified at the same time. I just hope that those who have stuck around here can appreciate that I may not be around as much but you will know where to find me if you’re curious. If you want to know why it started, the leggings.
The knit ones came up in many knitting groups and I went on a hunt. I found them, fell in love and bought many more items. Now I want to share my love of the exciting and limited amounts of prints and people who make this so fun to do. I’ve met and talked with more people in the last month than I can remember socializing with in ages. I love it. It reminds of the best job I ever had and enjoyed working at a music store. If you love what you do and do what you love everything just falls into place.
I picked out the funnest mailers and cards just FYI. If you order from me you get pineapples and unicorns.
I’m learning to love myself again throughout this whole process as well. Taking pictures of myself is something I avoid like the plague. Now that it is work, it forces me to face my fears and embarassments. At least I feel pretty is my new motto. I’m hoping to change it, but right now this works.
So for all of you that need inspiration, I leave you with this:
